Wayne Castine was found brutally murdered and the murderer remains at large. Castine, a suspected child predator, was killed in Brattleboro where he was involved with a tangled network of an extended family living in a local trailer park. Any member of the clan would have had the opportunity to kill him, and, as he was involved with both the mother and her 12 year old daughter, reason to commit the murder. At the same time, Joe Gunther has learned that his girlfriend Lyn Silva’s fisherman father and brother, believed lost at sea off the coast of Maine, might have actually been murdered. Without enough solid information to warrant law enforce ment involvement, Lyn returns to Maine to try and investigate Gunther’s findings. Gunther periodically puts his on-going murder investigation on hold—irritating his colleagues and angering his bosses —to go and help Lyn in Maine. It appears increasingly possible that her father and brother weren’t the good guys that Lyn always believed them to be and that they might have been involved with vicious smugglers who murdered them—and might do the same to Lyn if she keeps pushing. Torn between his conscience and his heart, a murder invest - igation and a personal search for the truth, Gunther finds that betrayal and loyalty are often a matter of viewpoint.
  • This is a combination review of Price of Malice and the previous book The Catch. I've read almost all of the Joe Gunther series and loved them, until these 2! It seems like Archer Mayor has been struggling a bit. I may be in the minority, but I just can't warm up to Lyn. It's almost like.....Joe & Gail aren't together, let's find another love interest for Joe! Not that I miss Gail, but...IMO.....Lyn isn't interesting or likable and I just don't care about her.
    Also, Joe's behavior in this book was definitely uncharacteristic, acting more like a "love-struck" teenager, than a seasoned, high ranking cop! That bothered me, considering his usual dedication to his job. It just seemed weird. I will definitely continue with this series, but I hope it gets back to the excellent writing and story-lines that made this series so great!

  • I've liked this series since I stumbled onto them in a small VT bookstore 15 or so years ago. I like the area and the genuine aura matched with the step by step police work involved. But it all really boils down to Joe Gunther and the relationships that he's built and lost over the years. His team has grown up with him as the father figure despite all the bureaucratic turmoil they've been through. There are few characters I prefer to sit down and catch up with. All that said, I think there's been a lot of travel for Joe of late that can be a little distracting. I'm not looking for a closed room scenario, but I like the whole local VT flavor to the series. Some of the important plot lines are running from book to book now too. There's a question at the end of the book that I'm sure will be wrapped up in a future book, but I'm not that big a fan of teaser's like that. I'm very happy with the book as a whole and look forward to the next one eagerly. I have to admit though that I hope the series returns a little more to it's familar haunts.

  • I live in upstate NY and have been to Burlington Vermont several times. My wife read his 1st book and said that it was about people like us. She then kept telling me how well he wrote and suggesting that I give him a try. I did and got hooked. Last week I read the last of his 27 books. They do not need to be read in order but I think I enjoyed them more because I did. Like my wife told me "Give him a chance."

  • I've danced with the Joe Gunther character during the last decade, but was too foolish to appreciate the complexity of the stories and how marvelously each book, though quite able to stand alone, builds upon the next. About a month ago, I was looking for a strong mystery series and returned to Gunther, even though New England, the location of the stories, isn't my favorite part of the country -- way too cold and snowy. After 12 books in a month, leaving little time for sleeping, I'm current with the series. I recommend going to the Archer Mayor website and getting the chronological order of the books before plunging in. Prices are reasonable on Kindle ranging from almost free to under ten bucks. While some books are better than others, the good-bad differential is measured in smidgens. This series is a wonderful way to fill the long winter nights or sunny beach days.

  • I have read all of the Joe Gunther series, and I was not disappointed in any way with this latest addition.
    I gave it a 5 star rating because it kept my attention from the first page to the very last.
    Archer Mayor is one of my favorite authors. I put him up there with James Lee Burke and Craig Johnson. In reading his books, at every stage you are aware of where you are, what the weather is like, whether birds are singing, and you are aware of how the past history of a certain location plays into what you are witnessing now. The characters are unforgettable and I can't wait until the next chapter of Joe Gunther's life is available in print.

  • Always terrific. This is probably my favorite series and I have now read everything out there and am anxiously waiting for more. Terrific character development. I suggest reading them in order but I'm sure that's not necessary for enjoyment... it does add to it though by seeing the characters grow and knowing what they came from.

  • I have read the first 21 books of the "Joe Gunther Series". In my opinion, Archer Mayor is a great author. His plots are diverse and believable. His characters are well described with believable personalities. The books in the series flow from one to the other with subtle reminders of previous events and characters. To read the series in order is like reading a very large, very interesting book. I am now working on the rest of the series.

  • The author just keeps making Joe Gunther more and more like a guy I want to invite to dinner. Having read all of the previous Joe Gunther series, I feel as if I know the characters personally...as only a skilled author can create. Price of Malice has given the reader two plotlines to figure out, making this installment even more enjoyable. I would recommend new readers start from the first in the series, to get the full picture , of all the characters as the author has developed each one.
