“Massacre Pond is a tough act to follow, but Doiron avoids series stagnancy by placing Bowditch outside of the law-enforcement circle he once loved and treating readers to another round of top-notch outdoors-Maine descrition. Highly recommended for fans of C.J. Box and Craig Johnson.” ―Booklist
“Excellent . . . Thoughtful plotting and strong characters raise this above the crime novel pack.” ―Publishers weekly (starred review)
“Vivid local characters and wild Maine landscapes, as well as a satisfying mystery. Recommended for readers who appreciate maverick backwoods investigators like Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight.” ―Library Journal
“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
“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)

Top Customer Reviews
The main character in the series, Mike Bowditch, has grown in each book, and this is part of what makes him so interesting. He is also a great investigator, the author surrounds him with great secondary characters, and the mysteries that he is trying to solve, are always engaging.
Since Mike is a Game Warden, the author uses the Maine landscape as another character. This is a job and a part of the world so removed from mine, that I find myself totally involved.
If you have not read the other books in the series, I think Mr. Doiron makes it easy for a new reader to enjoy the book, but I would suggest reading all the books. It is worth it. If you are already a fan of this series, this one is a great addition.
I appreciate the knowledge of Maine that Doiron uses to describe this vast state. I'm from "away", as they say here, and like the snippets of information tucked into these books.
I'm a fan, and can't wait for the next installment in the life and times of Mike Bowditch.
Paul Doiron's writing style continues to grow as well. I recommend starting with the first novel and enjoy the full experience. I was late coming to the party so got to read all the books in a short period of time which made it even more enjoyable.
