This week's staff pick:
Presumption of Guilt
Reviewed by Phil
This is the 27th book in Archer Mayor's series and features all our old friends, Willy Kunkle - even more paranoid than usual! - Sammie Martens, Lester Spinney and Beverly Hillstrom. There is also a reprise from the Tag Man.
A skeleton is discovered during demolition work at the Vermont Yankee power station. The concrete slab in which the body is found was poured 40 years ago. Joe and his team are able to identify the body relatively quickly, but discovering a motive and the perpetrator of the crime proves more difficult. As the investigation continues, the victim's partner is found shot dead in his swimming pool, and Lester's son, also a police officer, is kidnapped.
This is classic Archer Mayor - a thoroughly good police procedural. I read it in one sitting.
Released: 27 September 2016
Author event: 7.00pm, October 6th, Bennington Free Library
