If you have ever felt that we in Vermont have not had our fair share of tantalizing murders and mysteries, this book will set your mind to rest. Mr. Bellamy chronicles a number of examples of chronic misbehavior and unexplained disappearances amongst the Green Mountains, from the case of Bennington College student, Paula Weldon, who set off one afternoon in 1946 for a hike on the Long Trail and has never been seen again to Mary Rogers, who was summarily hanged for using her feminine charms to persuade two brothers to dispatch her husband. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

A simple case that turns complex is at the center of Occam's Razor, the latest Joe Gunther mystery from our Newfane neighbor Archer Mayor. Two people who seem to have nothing in common are murdered, but the same names keep popping up in both investigations. Then an anonymous phone call links the crimes to a Vermont politician with gubernatorial ambitions, and Joe is caught up in a whirlpool of possibilities. By the time he sorts it out, his own life has changed, with new job offers for both him and his longtime lover Gail Zigman. Another winner from this top-notch writer! ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

Mayor's well-written mysteries feature Brattleboro, VT police detective Joe Gunther. The town and its environs are as integral to the plots as the people are. Most of this second book in the series is set in the fictional Northeast Kingdom town of Gannet, where Joe is vacationing. As a local cult divides the town, Joe has to help the local police cope with mob violence -- and several murders.

 Gannet is based on the town of Island Pond. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
