What to expect

A brutal home invasion shocks Brattleboro’s small Asian community, but no one is talking. Undeterred, Joe Gunther digs deeper and discovers a cross-border smuggling route carrying drugs, contraband, and illegal aliens into and out of Canada. Operating below the radar for years, competition between underworld rivals is bringing it into the light with deadly consequences.

International jurisdiction is a complicated matter, and in the pursuit of justice, Gunther will have to collaborate with the FBI, the Border Patrol, and the Mounties.

“Mayor’s Brattleboro is a fascinating place that beckons readers to return.”


“Explosive action scenes being a specialty of the author’s, you can count on a tense showdown with guns blazing on all sides. But when the noise dies, Mr. Mayor leaves us with the sobering impression that no town is small enough to escape the global reach of sophisticated criminals who are really good at their work.”
