Mystery fans have a treat in store when Archer Mayor, author of the highly acclaimed, Vermont-based mystery series featuring detective Joe Gunther, returns to Phoenix Books Essex. Mayor will be reading from and autographing his new novel, Paradise City.
Archer Mayor's Joe Gunther series has been described by the Chicago Tribune as "the best police procedurals being written in America." Mayor is also the 2004 winner of the New England Independent Booksellers Association Award for Best Fiction-the first time a writer of crime literature has been so honored. In addition, Mayor is a death investigator for Vermont's Chief Medical Examiner, and a Deputy Sheriff for Windham County, VT.
