Have you read the mysteries by Steve Hamilton that are set in Michigan’s Upper Pennisula? If you have and like them then Paul Doirons The Poacher’s Son is for you. Mike Bowditch is a Warden in Maine. His father has been accused of killing a police officer and a mystery ensues. A good series for me has characters that you care about and interesting stories. Some writers can do action, some can do characters and some can do description. Not many can do all three and still maintain a gripping pace. Mr. Doiron can. He also avoided easy and predictable solutions to his “mystery” while avoiding gimmicks and keeping it believeable. This is book one of this authors series and I could not put it down. Follow up and also read his other two in the series - Trespasser and Bad Little Falls – all three are fantastic!
