I plan to read a bunch of Paul Doiron’s books so I will simply list them here like I have done with a couple other authors rather than write a review of each book.
The Poacher’s Son -Doiron’s first book and first one I read. Loved it. (November 2021)
Trespasser – A woman dies. Somehow it is tied to another woman’s death a few years before…and somehow Mike Bowditch the Maine Game Warden is involved. (December 2021)
Bad Little Falls – Another great story of Mike Bowditch the Maine Game Warden who finds himself in trouble again. This time he is Down East near Machias in the winter with a couple of frozen guys in a bog, one lives…or maybe he doesn’t. I love that Doiron writes about Maine in the woods and he tells a great crime scene style story and I spend most of the book trying to figure out “who done it”…only to be surprised again at the ending. (December 2021)
Massacre Pond – Someone killed a bunch of moose and left the right where they dropped. All the usual suspects were there but the police and warder service could not figure it out…until Mike Bowditch gets involved in his own special way. (February 2022)
The Bone Orchard – Holy crap, he quits the Warden service. No this can’t be! Don’t worry, he still has a gun and works in the woods. And don’t worry, he has a nose for trouble finding him or Bowditch finding the trouble. This may be my favorite so far, I never saw the twists and turns…I even cried a couple of times. (March 2022)
Knife Creek – I skipped a couple of books because Bull Moose didn’t have them. So now he has a new girlfriend. Someone who didn’t care for him one bit in Massacre Pond. This was a real thriller of a book that in some places scared the crap out of me :O Sorry, I nearly swear there. I could not figure out how we was going to get out of the last predicament he was in. There really seemed like no way out, but of course, Mike Bowditch did it. Or did he?
