About this title
[Read by Tom Taylorson]
In the second suspenseful Joe Gunther mystery by New York Times bestselling author Archer Mayor, Gunther's vacation is cut short when a suspicious fire turns deadly.
Lieutenant Joe Gunther is in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom investigating a minor embezzling case. It's a pleasant distraction and a chance to reconnect with old friends, but when a house fire reveals itself to be arson, compounded by murder, Gunther can't help but investigate. He quickly finds himself enmeshed in a web of animosity between put-upon townspeople, the state police, angry parents, and members of a reclusive sect.
Murder follows murder, yet no one seems to be telling Gunther the whole truth -- not even his childhood friends. And truth is what he desperately needs if he's to stop the killings.
Set entirely in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, an isolated, thinly populated part of the state, Borderlines tells of Joe Gunther's temporary assignment to the local State's Attorney's office, which he has taken on in part to get away from Brattleboro, and from his girlfriend, Gail Zigman, with whom he's had a fight. Set in the fictional town of Gannett, the story soon shifts to the discovery of a man's body, and the possible involvement of a back-to-nature cult that owns half the real estate in town. Juggling his own personal problems, jurisdictional disputes with the state police, an escalating animosity between cult members and townies, and a growing number of homicides, Joe moves as fast as he can before events reach a critical mass and overwhelm him.
