Mayor jumps the shark a bit in this chapter of Joe Gunther's story. Russian spies, the CIA, an assistant a.g. eager to stick it to a cop - it gets a little hectic. I hope the next episode is more domestic. ( )

My least favorite Mayor so far. I found it violent and a little far fetched. The ending seemed a bit abrupt; not discussion of what happened in Middlebury where a lot of the action including car crashes, killings, including some state troopers took place. No fallout?

Having been to Middlebury several times I liked recognizing the layout of the town and description of the arts center at the College. ( )

This series is consistently good and this book is a good example of it. Although it was written 10 years ago it is not stale. Some of the information about GPS is outdated now, but the story is still viable. ( )
