Book Description

16 May 2013 Mike Bowditch 2
While on patrol on foggy March evening, Mike Bowditch receives a call for help. A woman has reportedly struck a deer on a lonely coast road. When the game warden arrives on the scene, he finds blood in the road - but both the driver and deer have vanished. The details of the disappearance seem eerily familiar. Seven years earlier, a jury convicted Erland Jefferts of the rape and murder of a college student and sentenced him to a life in prison. But when the missing woman is found brutalized in a manner that suggests Jefferts may have been framed, Bowditch receives a warning from state prosecutors to stop asking questions.For Bowditch, doing nothing is not an option. And as he closes in on his quarry, he suddenly discovers how dangerous his opponents are, and how far they will go to prevent him from bringing a killer to justice.Praise for The Poacher's Son:An excellent debut - filled with murder, betrayal and a terrific sense of place. C.J. Box.A stunning debut...At its heart this is a tale of bitter betrayal, lost hopes and broken dreams. The book has a tautness that is impossible to forget and which left me close to tears. It is also the first in a series. Its successor, Trespasser, also featuring Bowditch, is on the way. Grab him now. Daily Mail.Stunning vistas...eye popping scenes - The New York Times Book Review.This is a compelling, moving and utterly impressive debut - Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog.The Poacher's Son is one of the best written debut novels I have read in years. This novel has it all - a great plot, a wonderful Maine woods setting and a truly remarkable and believable cast of characters. - Nelson de Mille.

Product Description


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)

3.0 out of 5 stars Bowditch gets in trouble again!! 28 July 2014
By Steve
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Brainless 16 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trespasser 30 Oct 2013
By I. B. Pitbladdo VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second story in a promising series but my first encounter with Paul Doiron. I enjoyed the book and found the narrative to be well paced and the lead character believable. I was only one third of the way into the book when I bought the first story, The Poacher's Son, and that in itself is a pretty fair recommendation for the authors work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Second Story 9 Jun 2013
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.
