"The Poacher's Son" by Paul Doiron
April 24, 2014  
Poacher's Son book jacket

Paul Doiron's debut novel The Poacher's Son won praise from critics as a well-written, well-paced mystery with well-developed characters. The main character is Mike Bowditch, a Maine game warden who learns that his father, a hard-living northwoods rogue, has been accused of killing two men, including a deputy sheriff. But the other prominent character is the setting. The book paints vivid pictures of Maine, the sights sounds and smells of the wilderness, and of the characters that call this home.
