" Archer Mayor churns out his Joe Gunther series on at least a yearly basis. I've read most of them, in part because their locales are familiar, and his protagonist is likeable, although fairly two-dimensional. This latest in a long series is fair-to-middling. Perhaps I'm just tired of Joe's aging angst, and Willy Kunkle's sourness. The story involves both the familiar - Vermont - and for Mayor, the unfamiliar, venturing into Northhampton, MA, in a convoluted tale of large-scale jewelry theft and "laundering," exploitation of mostly-Asians escaping horrendous conditions at home, only to find themselves in almost as bad situations in the states. This is a quick read, with lots of white space on the pages of a book that could be half the size. "
