Weston's personal journey to health, navigating a series of food intolerances as well as what made her feel most vibrant, led her to a non-GMO, plant-based diet free of soy, gluten, dairy, eggs, and meat.

    Join us in welcoming Archer Mayor back to Burlington! In Trace, the newest Joe Gunther mystiery, Gunther and the VBI are pulled into three different critical cases at the same time, each equally important, each potentially deadly.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  The Vermont Bureau of Investigation (VBI) has been brought into three new cases, taxing their resources and manpower; meanwhile, VBI head Joe Gunther has to take time off to care for his ailing mother. Those cases are now in the hands of the individual investigators. Sammie Martens is assigned a murder case. The victim is a young woman, the roommate of the daughter of Medical Examiner Beverly Hillstrom. A recent transplant from Albany, New York, Sammie must find out what put a hit man on the trail of this seemingly innocent young woman. Lester Spinney takes over a famous cold case, a double murder where a state trooper and a motorist were killed in an exchange of gunfire. Or so it has seemed for years. When Lester is told that the motorist’s fingerprints were planted on the gun he’s supposed to have fired, it opens the question—who really killed the state trooper? Willy Kunkel’s case starts with a child's discovery of three teeth on a railroad track, leading eventually to a case of possible sabotage against critical military equipment. In cases that lead the team all over Vermont and nearby, Archer Mayor once against shows why his novels featuring Joe Gunther and the VBI team are amongst the finest crime fiction today.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Archer Mayor, in addition to writing the New York Times bestselling Joe Gunther series, is a death investigator for the state medical examiner and has twenty-five years of experience as a firefighter/EMT. He lives near Brattleboro, Vermont.
