About this title


Leaving the relative calm of Vermont, Detective Willy Kunkle must confront his past as he seeks revenge for the death of his ex-wife in the back alleys of New York City. Labeled an accidental overdose, her death is considered routine by the NYPD. But Willy's investigation points to foul play. Now, his search will uncover more about his own life than even he thought possible-and place him in the gravest danger he has ever known.


Willy Kunkle, a deputy cop, gets his own book in the largely under-the-radar series of thoughtful mysteries featuring Vermont police chief Joe Gunther. Called to New York to claim the body of his ex-wife, the apparent victim of a drug overdose, Willy is forced to confront his troubled past while seeking evidence to support his hunch that the Manhattan cops are overlooking what is actually a homicide. Meanwhile, Gunther and another deputy, Willy's lover, run interference with the NYPD, where the cops aren't sure whether they ought to be helping Kunkle find a killer or arresting him before he becomes one. A thoughtful, powerful, psychologically acute novel that deserves to break Archer Mayor out the midlist, The Sniper's Wife draws the reader inside the mind of a protagonist who justly deserves the focused attention Mayor pays him. --Jane Adams
