Three Can Keep a Secret
A Joe Gunther Mystery by Archer Mayor
Review: It is late Summer of 2011 and Hurricane Irene has ravaged areas of Vermont. Rivers are rising causing flooding of roads, homes and buildings. With lines down, electricity is out as well as phone service. The state has become a disaster area. Joe Gunther and his team are called into action to help the state's overworked and strained police forces. When a mental health facility was being evacuated, an aging woman who has called herself "the Governor" walked out of the building oblivious to persons in charge. She had been an patient there for at least forty years and now she has disappeared. When the rising waters ravaged a cemetery a casket was unearthed and broken open. It was filled with stones — not a body. Soon afterwards, a retired state politician living in an upscale retirement home is found dead, presumably of natural causes. When Gunther goes to investigate the death, he feels there is reason to suspect something more than just a heart attack or old age in Three Can Keep a Secret, the 24th mystery in this series by Archer Mayor.
