Archer Mayor's New York Times bestselling Joe Gunther
series returns with a complex case involving two corpses,
one escaped mental patient, and a long-held secret that
binds them together
â€śThree can keep a secret, if two of them are dead.â€ť â€”Ben
Joe Gunther and his teamâ€”the Vermont Bureau of
Investigation (VBI)â€”are usually called in on major cases
by local Vermont enforcement whenever they need expertise
and back-up. But after the state is devastated by
Hurricane Irene, the police from one end of the state are
taxed to their limits, leaving Joe Gunther involved in an
odd, seemingly unrelated series of cases. In the wake of
the hurricane, a seventeen year old gravesite is exposed,
revealing a coffin that had been filled with rocks instead
of the expected remains.
At the same time, an old, retired state politician turns
up dead at his high-end nursing home, in circumstances
that leave investigators unsure that he wasnâ€™t murdered.
And a patient who calls herself The Governor has walked
away from a state mental facility during the post-
hurricane flood. It turns out that she was indeed once
â€śGovernor for a Day,â€ť over forty years ago, but that she
might have also been falsely committed and drugged to keep
her from revealing something that she saw all those years
ago. Amidst the turmoil and the disaster relief, itâ€™s up
to Joe Gunther and his team to learn what really happened
with the two corpsesâ€”one missingâ€”and what secret â€śThe
Governorâ€ť might have still locked in her brain that links
