The Poacher’s Son by Paul Doiron
Another crime thriller with a lot of “outdoorsiness”.
The Premise: Set in the Maine wilderness, we meet Game Warden Mike Bowditch. We know he had a rocky upbringing, has been having women problems and he is losing his temper with people at work. Then, after receiving a voicemail from his father, whom he has not heard from in over 2 years, he finds himself suspended and working unofficially to investigate a missing fugitive suspected of killing a cop. Who is this fugitive….Mike’s dear-old dad.
In addition to the cast of very interesting characters, this novel had a very strong sense of place. Doiron does an amazing job of describing the woods and the lakes.
This is the first of 13 books. I don’t know if I enjoyed this enough to read the whole series, but I will definitely check out a couple more and see where that leads.
