Detective Joe Gunther is back.
Vermont author Archer Mayor has released the 18th installment of his popular series featuring the fictional Brattleboro detective, who is now a major-crimes investigator for the state.
In the new book, "Chat", Gunther is drawn into the world of online predators, who troll internet chatrooms in search of unsuspecting victims.
Meanwhile, as Gunther gathers evidence for a murder investigation, members of his family are threatened, and he must determine whether these incidents can be tied together.
Archer Mayor lives in Newfane. He spoke with VPR’s Neal Charnoff in our Norwich studios.
