On a fog-shrouded road in Maine, a young woman disappears after hitting a deer with her car. The game warden called to investigate uncovers a web of lies and deceit that leads to a killer who may have already gotten away with murder.
"[A] complex, heartfelt, altogether impressive piece of work."
"Doiron's sense of place, and of the people of Maine, adds lush nuance to this suspense-filled read." (top pick)
"Doiron, editor of Down East magazine, delivers another perfectly plotted mystery peopled with multidimensional characters, but, in addition, his writing has matured. His descriptions of Maine's midcoast are incredibly evocative of the sights, sounds, and smells of early spring, and the heart-pounding account of Mike's four-wheeling chase through the woods is a masterpiece of high-octane narrative." (starred review)
