“Bad Little Falls is a jewel of a book. Doiron has gotten it all magnificently right: a hell of a good mystery, beautifully drawn landscape and characters so evocatively written they follow you off the page. Buy this. The guy can write.” —Nevada Barr, New York Times bestselling author of Rope
“Doiron’s third Bowditch entry is riveting and honest, with full-depth characters and a landscape that isn’t cutting any slack. Readers of Nevada Barr and C. J. Box will enjoy this similar tale, with the added surprise of a refreshing hero whose youth and inexperience Doiron skillfully twists into an asset.” —Booklist
“A high-stakes, high-tension yarn in which you keep wishing everything would turn out fine for the deeply flawed, deeply sympathetic hero.” —Kirkus
“Excellent . . . a murder case with some truly wicked twists. Dorion matches strong characters with effective prose and subtle characterizations. Fans of Steve Hamilton’s Alex McKnight series, likewise set in a remote region close to Canada, will find a lot to like.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
All I can say is, if you finish the book wanting more or looking forward to the next one...now that's a great read!
Massacre Pond, the fourth novel in the Mike Bowditch series, is the best so far, and that's saying a lot because I loved the first three.
The characters are well drawn, the descriptions are clear without being verbose, and best of all, the plot is completely realistic.
This book by Maine Author Paul Doiron of the DownEast Magazine is a fascinating read. Set in the woods of rural Maine, it is a mystery that I enjoyed thoroughlyPublished 1 month ago by Niles L. Perkins III
It describes the Maine woods to a tee. And the hostility of the natives is about as real as it gets. A good read.Published 1 month ago by ann adjutant
Solid addition to the series staring Mike Bowditch, game warden in Maine. Not quite C.J. Box, but then Maine isn't Wyoming.Published 2 months ago by Fred

I like the whole series. Gives the reader insight to a culture that little is written about. Mystery aspect is also good and keeps you guessing most of the way through.Published 3 months ago by Donald D Karle
