THE POACHER'S SON
by Paul Doiron

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense

RT Rating

Doiron's impressive debut is told through the eyes of the suspect's estranged son. This is a literate tale of revenge, love and loyalty that uses the mysterious Maine woods as both a motive for the crime and a knob for ratcheting up the suspense. Though the prose is sometimes flat-footed, there are plenty of twists and surprises to keep the reader guessing until the very end.

Maine State game warden Mike Bowditch returns home to a mysterious message on his answering machine from the father he hasn't heard from in over two years -- and who has now disappeared in the wake of a double homicide. In order to prove his father's innocence, Mike risks his job and his tenuous relationship with longtime girlfriend Sarah in order to track a man adept at not being found until he wants to be.
