Product Description

Review

Massacre Pond is a tough act to follow, but Doiron avoids series stagnancy by placing Bowditch outside of the law-enforcement circle he once loved and treating readers to another round of top-notch outdoors-Maine descrition. Highly recommended for fans of C.J. Box and Craig Johnson.” ―Booklist

“Excellent . . . Thoughtful plotting and strong characters raise this above the crime novel pack.” ―Publishers weekly (starred review)

“Vivid local characters and wild Maine landscapes, as well as a satisfying mystery. Recommended for readers who appreciate maverick backwoods investigators like Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight.” ―Library Journal

Bad Little Falls is a jewel of a book. Doiron has gotten it all magnificently right: a hell of a good mystery, beautifully drawn landscape and characters so evocatively written they follow you off the page. Buy this. The guy can write.” ―Nevada Barr, New York Times bestselling author of Rope

“A high-stakes, high-tension yarn in which you keep wishing everything would turn out fine for the deeply flawed, deeply sympathetic hero.” ―Kirkus

“Excellent . . . a murder case with some truly wicked twists. Dorion matches strong characters with effective prose and subtle characterizations. Fans of Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight series, likewise set in a remote region close to Canada, will find a lot to like.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Format: Kindle Edition
The Mike Bowditch Mystery series is one of the best series currently available. Paul Doiron brings Maine to life in this series. When an author can transport a reader to a local through his words, you know he is a writer worth his salt.

Mike Bowditch is a rebel, a non-conformist, but a man of integrity. The kind of man you would want as a friend. Kathy Frost is lucky to have such a friend. She is very rightly annoyed with him for leaving the warden service. Because Mike is a natural. He has the deductive reasoning skills combined with a knowledge of the outdoors that makes him perfect for a warden's job. But Mike has been disillusioned and he is spending his days as a fishing guide. Until he talks to his friend...then tragedy strikes. Is a suicidal ex-soldier's death to blame or is it something else?

Mike Bowditch may no longer be a Maine Game Warden but he can never stop investigating...he can never stop being a warden. Bowditch is relentless in his search for the truth and his hunt for the shooter who shot his mentor Kathy Frost. As with each book in the series, Mike Bowditch grows up more before his eyes. As always there is plenty of action and twists and I loved the ending!

Fabulous addition to a wonderful series. Download or pick up your copy today....The Bone Orchard is on sale now!

Good character development. They all seem to have good and bad attributes. Suspenseful plot. A few twists. Those who appreciate the outdoors will like it.

HASH(0x9cb11684) out of 5 stars BEST BOOK YET IN A GREAT SERIES! July 16 2014
By MW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I LOVED this entry in the Mike Bowditch mystery series. With each installment, Paul Doiron's writing gets richer and more nuanced along with his characters. In this one, the focus is Kathy Frost, Mike's former sergeant and one of my favorite characters in the series. I intended to save this for vacation, but when I bought the book last night I ended up reading until 1 a.m. and then finishing it this morning. The mystery is excellent, but what I especially loved was the character development. Mike is becoming a man. Lots of characters from earlier books make gratifying reappearances here. If you're new to Doiron, start with THE POACHER'S SON and read the books in order for a wonderful reading experience. FIVE BIG STARS.

HASH(0x9d105570) out of 5 stars Series Gets Better and Better(if that is possible!) July 16 2014
By N. Gargano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Do I really have to wait a year for the next book? I am a selfish reader, I know this about myself. When I love a character and or a series, I hate having to wait between publication dates. This is one of those series.
The main character in the series, Mike Bowditch, has grown in each book, and this is part of what makes him so interesting. He is also a great investigator, the author surrounds him with great secondary characters, and the mysteries that he is trying to solve, are always engaging.
Since Mike is a Game Warden, the author uses the Maine landscape as another character. This is a job and a part of the world so removed from mine, that I find myself totally involved.
If you have not read the other books in the series, I think Mr. Doiron makes it easy for a new reader to enjoy the book, but I would suggest reading all the books. It is worth it. If you are already a fan of this series, this one is a great addition.

Excellent continuous storyline; good characters & settings. I'm feeling a profound sense of disorientation & loss on completing a book, & I know the only solution is the next one.

HASH(0x9cc7a1ec) out of 5 stars Doiron's series of books to be amongst the best mystery thrillers yet Sept. 14 2014
By jonnylaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Having been a veteran Maine Game Warden - and having lived the dream - I can honestly say I found Mr. Doiron's series of books to be amongst the best mystery thrillers yet. Each one has a story within itself of events that relate to his storyline and he has cleverly incorporated them into the imaginary wardens career! I hope there will be more.
