Product Description

Review

Doiron's plot is heart-pounding, filled with startling twists and turns. The main characters, some lovable and others despicable, are all multidimensional. And the stylish prose is pitch-perfect, especially in its evocative descriptions of the beauty, and occasionally the ugliness, of coastal Maine in early spring. The story's slam-bang ending leaves Mike's life in tatters, and the reader anxious to know what the author has in store for him next. (Associated Press)

Doiron's sense of place, and of the people of Maine, adds lush nuance to this suspense-filled read. Well-paced, with an interesting array of elegantly rounded characters, this effort more than lives up to the promise of Doiron's debut. (RT Book Review)

A complex, heartfelt, altogether impressive piece of work. (Kirkus Reviews)

Format: Hardcover
Mike Bowditch is a game warden in Maine, whom we first met in Poacher's Son, The. This book is set a few months after the events of the first book. It's not necessary to have read the first book, but it's better if you already have as there are some spoilers about how it concluded.

The book kicks off with Mike receiving a call about an accident involving a car hitting a deer. When he arrives at the scene, both the driver and the deer are missing. He has a sense of foreboding which leads him to keep investigating even after the State Police take over. I am loathe to give away more of the plot than that, because it's the kind of book that you'll enjoy more if you don't know where it's going. Suffice to say that there is a man in prison for murdering someone several years ago, but now it appears that perhaps the wrong person has been imprisoned for that crime.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and this one is even better. It has a terrific sense of place and the characters are all interesting and believable. It's also a good plot that grips you from early on and has lots of interesting twists and strands to it. I read it in a day, which is unusual for me - usually something else takes my attention but this was a book I didn't want to put down.

If you like this book, I recommend A Cold Day In Paradise. Paul Doiron and Steve Hamilton have similar writing styles and they have both made it onto my "must read" list.

I recently read Paul Doirons first book "The Poacher's Son" and found it to be very good. So I bought the next two ones. "Trespassers" and "Bad Little Falls". They are all about a young Maine Game Warden, Mike Bowditch, and what he is caught up in.

Paul Doiron writes a very convincing story about the wilder parts of Maine and the people living there. The Young Game Warden (in the US that is a police man)is constantly caught up in a number of minor crimes as well as some more terrible murders. For some reason he can't stay out of ongoing investigations and he is pushed along in the story, sometimes by his own ideas and sometimes by other events that he has no control over. The story develops well and the end is terrific.

Sometimes you wonder why he does things against better judgment but on the other hand his girlfriend is also saying and doing things that are a little to strange but Mr Doiron manages to create a well flowing story out of that. Mr Doiron has good control over his writing and the people and environment he describes are very well done.

A book well worth reading. On to the next one!

By Lincs Reader TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Jun. 2013
Format: Paperback
Just like The Poacher's Son, this next instalment is a gripping well thought out and expertly paced thriller story. Our hero, Mike Bowditch is a little older and a tiny bit wiser - having learnt a great deal in the first story about his father and their relationship. However, Bowditch is still young and at times he is still hot-headed, often acting on his instincts, rather than with common sense. These traits make Bowditch a realistic and likeable character, someone who is passionate about his work and has a strong sense of justice.

The plot line is cleverly put together, at times complicated, but with each strand of the story meshing together to create an exciting thriller with plenty of twists and turns along the way.

As the mystery unfolds, so does the character of Bowditch along with his partner Sarah and his Warden colleagues. Again, Doiron has brought to life the wonderful Maine countryside, with it's beauty and wildlife and it's bleakness and share of criminals.

I enjoyed every minute of this story and look forward very much to reading the next in the series.

The second novel of mike Bowditch, Maine Game Warden. Again very similar to the C J Box character of Joe Pickett but then it is to be expected.
The author is a fairly good, and keeps you turning the pages however the main characters continual stupidity does make you say out loud 'don't do that!' Perhaps that is the authors intention to make the character a little stupid and self destructive but you then can't have him being a clever insightful detective whilst all those around can't see the woods for the trees, and then on the other hand doing things that most people with a couple of brain cells would realise is stupid, reckless, and certain to have fall out!
I will persevere with the books but hopefully the main character mike will stop being a bit thick!

I have read all of CJ Box books about Joe Pickett, game warden so gave this series a go. The first in the series had lots of similarities but was a good read in its own right, given that Mike the game warden is so thick! However, I have just finished reading the second book and again, enjoyed it to a point. Mike seems a lovely good hearted man, but he insists on doing things that he shouldn't. Poking his nose in where it is not wanted and still being heroic when he is injured. A tad unbelievable, but I will persevere as I am hoping he will grow up a bit.

Mike Bowditch is a game warden in Maine who stumbles upon a murder and pursues it despite having no role in the official investigation. The official enquirers are mum skulls so it's lucky Mike is on the scene.

Mike is also a numbskull. When seriously injured he takes it as a signal to redouble his efforts and see whether he can get injured again. He also lacks judgement putting as much effort into the immediate pursuit of a serial nuisance maker as into his priority of following the murder leads.

It's a readable action adventure for a holiday but subtlety and craft are entirely missing and characterisation and plot not much better.
