PAUL DOIRON is setting the bar for outdoor crime fiction, with his evocative series featuring game warden Mike Bowditch confronting Maine’s landscape: its inhabitants, its wildlife, its indescribable beauty and its harsh realities. In his next crime novel, Bowditch is threatened with a secret that could cost him his life in KNIFE CREEK, published June 13, 2017. Doiron will be at the Camden Public Library on June 20 at 7:00 pm to read from his new book, answer questions, and sign copies. Copies of the book will be available for sale.
When Maine game warden Mike Bowditch is tasked with shooting invasive feral hogs that are tearing up the forest in his district, he makes a horrific discovery — a dead baby buried in a shallow grave.
Even more disturbing: evidence suggests the infant was the child of a young woman who was presumed to have died four years earlier after she disappeared from a group rafting trip.
As Bowditch assists the reopened investigation, he begins to suspect that some of his neighbors aren’t who they seem to be. When violence strikes close to home, he realizes that his unknown enemies will stop at nothing to keep their terrible secrets.
Mike Bowditch has bucked the odds his whole career, but this time the intrepid warden may have finally followed his hunches one step too far.
For anyone who admires the work of Craig Johnson or C.J. Box, Paul Doiron is not to be missed.
