From the Publisher:
After his hard-drinking poacher father becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a beloved local cop, Mike Bowditch is one of the few who believes the violent womanizer didn't do it and, with the help of a retired pilot, journeys deep into the Maine wilderness to find his fugitive kin--and the real killer.After his hard-drinking poacher father becomes the prime suspect in the murder of a beloved local cop, Mike Bowditch is one of the few who believes the violent womanizer didn't do it and, with the help of a retired pilot, journeys deep into the Maine wilderness to find his fugitive kin--and the real killer.
Annotation:
Paul Doiron makes a stunning debut with the emotionally resonant and tensely strung thriller POACHER'S SON. Game warden Mike Bowditch has had little to do with his father in years: Jack Bowditch drank too much and ran around with too many women to be a good dad. And now, since Jack scrapes by as a poacher, Mike and his dad are on opposite sides of the law. But when Jack becomes the prime suspect in the fatal shooting of a police officer, despite it all, Mike does not believe that his father is guilty. Risking the respect of his fellow wardens, the trust of his girlfriend, and his own life, Mike sets out into the Maine wilderness to find his father and prove his innocence.

Praise

"[A] series of disastrously self-destructive actions that Doiron makes perfectly credible, all interspersed with a series of flashbacks...that are both tender and chilling....Doiron will have his hands full trying to top his accomplished debut." (starred review) 01/01/2010

"One hopes this fine novel is the first in a series starring Warden Bowditch, who could quickly become the East Coast version of C. J. Box's game-warden hero Joe Pickett...." (starred review) - Jessica Moyer 02/15/2010

"Along with nostalgic laments about the old-growth woods and modest settlements that have already fallen to civilization, Doiron provides wonderful scenes of present-day bear-tracking and man-hunting through the kind of terrain that attracts hikers, hunters and the odd 'paranoid militia freak' like the one causing so much trouble in this story." - Marilyn Stasio 05/09/2010
