Northampton Massachusetts, aka Paradise City, is just that to the thousands of tourists who flock there every year. But Vermont Bureau of Investigation agent Joe Gunther knows better – Northampton’s vibrant arts community hides a subculture which is the perfect nexus for a crime wave that spreads from bucolic Vermont all the way down to the historic streets of Boston’s Beacon Hill.
