Positive is the latest in the Joe Gunther series. This series is about a
small elite unit of the VBI (Vermont Bureau of Investigation)that
handles special cases. The characters are well developed and seem very
real. They have good relationships with each other and are dedicated
police officers. I have read the complete series and have enjoyed seeing
the development and growth of the characters. This story is about the
death of a Viet Nam war veteran that seems to be suspicious. Joe becomes
involved because his new love interest (the State's medical examiner)
is the cousin of the deceased and she asks him to look into it. The war
turns out to be an important part of the story and reminds us of the
effect war can have on veterans for their entire lives. The only part I
didn't like was that the ending didn't resolve everything for me but
left it open to my own imagination. Perhaps a future book will complete
the story. -- review submitted by Pat K. - a customer of the Anderson and Bethany Branch libraries.
