Combine the wilderness of Maine, a new forest ranger, a poacher who loves to drink, a cast of interesting characters, and a double-murder and you have “The Poacher’s Son.” The twists and turns will keep you guessing until the end. Paul Doiron’s first book is a winner!
Mike Bowditch is a new forest ranger. He loves his job, but when his father becomes the prime suspect in a double homicide, it becomes a liability. Mike wants to solve the crime; to prove his father innocent. But, can he do that as part of law enforcement? Should he even try? Interwoven in this murder mystery is an array of other suspects, each with a story of their own.
I had the privilege of reading this book as part of Barnes and Noble’s First Look Book Club. This book yields itself to either personal or book club reading, although, I wanted someone to talk to as I read along, someone to compare notes with. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and can’t wait for the next Mike Bowditch story to come out!
