5.0 out of 5 stars Your Maine summer read has arrived!, June 21, 2011
This review is from: Trespasser (Mike Bowditch Mysteries) (Hardcover)
When writers like C.J. Box, Tess Gerritsen and Andre Dubus III laud a debut, I sit up and take notice. But I've read all too many writers who have one book in the chamber, and that's all she wrote. Not Paul Doiron. TRESPASSER, his sophomore effort after last year's THE POACHER'S SON (which was nominated for pretty much every major crime fiction award extant), proclaims him a writer to watch.

Maine is a broad canvas, like Alaska or The West. The Pine Tree State possesses breathtaking beauty and old money cheek-by-jowl with chain-saws-and-coffee-brandy rural poverty. In Trespasser, Paul Doiron pits his hero, Mike Bowditch, against pretty much every conceivable trouble from all of the above. But, like C.J. Box's Joe Pickett or Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight, you can't help but root for the guy. Doiron's writing style and characters appeal to male and female readers alike, and his sense of place and atmosphere (both of which Maine has in abundance) stands with anyone. Doiron is just getting started, and I can't wait to see where he takes Mike Bowditch next. So pick up a Paul Doiron novel and spend your summer in Maine!
