Great debut and a fine writer,
This review is from: Poacher's Son, The (Paperback)
This is the first book in a series about a Maine Game Warden. He is just 24 years old and just starting his career in the forests of Maine. The Story is about his father being accused of killing two people and his son trying to cope with that. Paul Doiron, the author, is from Maine and the way he describes the area in the book is just about perfect. You get a real feeling for the territory and the people living there.
The Story is a little slow to begin with but it is so well written that you just want to read on to see what is happening. This is not a CIS type of mystery and there are no serial killers but Mr Doiron manages to make the story interesting from both a human as well as a criminal viewpoint. The End is a real explosion of events and it contains a number of surprises. This is a very good start of a new series. I have already bought the other two books he has written and will continue to follow the events of Maine Game Warden Mike Bowditch in the future.
