Mayor returns with Joe Gunther, police lieutenant in Brattleboro, VT. The assault was brutal. This book, as well as the other 4 I have read (working on my 6th right now) has grabbed my attention from the beginning of the book.

Archer Mayor is the author of the Joe Gunther detective series. Archer is a Yale graduate and lives in Newfane, Vermont, United States.

All of Archer Mayor's books have a gripping story line. The book just made me feel good. This is proubly my favioret Joe Gunther mystery. I live in Brattleboro myself and I liked how he included the streets and landmarks that I know so well. I'm pleased with how Mr. Mayor wrote it. Although the stories are first class, the pictures drawn with words as the story unfolds are the best that I have ever encountered. The magnificent metaphors can create, in less than one sentence, images that may take other authors pages. Although each book is independent in and of itself, I enjoy reading the stories in sequence.

FRUITS OF THE POISONOUS TREE HA. are I say it. ts roots from two primary sources. The title came from a late dear friend of mine, once a police chief, who, while discussing the details of an old intriguing case, referred to some evidence as being fruits of the poisonous tree. I was so enamored of the phrase-and its legal meaning-that I kept it in mind for years, waiting for the proper topic. That topic turned out to be rape, which is the primary crime addressed in this book. Gail Zigman is a friend of mine.

Leo eagerly supervised the hospital-dictated routine, but I felt driven to go beyond it, and did so in private, away from those I knew would caution me not to push too hard. The calls I made to the office reassured me that all was well and progressing at its own legal snail’s.

The call came at four in the morning. An unknown intruder had broken into the home of a local woman as she slept. Tying her to the bed and blindfolding her, he indulged in a little knife play, destroyed the bedroom, and raped her repeatedly.For Brattleboro police lieutenant Joe Gunther, the case cuts deep: the victim is his long-time lover and best friend, Gail Zigman, and the attack took place in the very bed he left just a few hours earlier.The leafy streets, sweet with earthy scents of the nearby Vermont hills, yield a sour trail of unsavory clues, all pointing to vagrant handyman and ex-con Bob Vogel. With three rapes already to his name, it looks as if he's been at it again.But appearances can lead to assumptions, and although Vogel runs for cover as soon as he's approached by the police, Joe cannot ignore the nagging feeling that something is amiss. Risking his friendship with Gail, the respect of his peers, and finally his own life, Joe doggedly keeps on the trail, trying to find out if the evidence against Vogel is genuine, or tainted...what policemen call "fruits of the poisonous tree."
