    Maine game warden Mike Bowditch has been sent into exile, transferred by his superiors to a remote outpost on the Canadian border. When a blizzard descends on the coast, Bowditch is called to the cabin of a terrified couple. A raving, half-frozen man has appeared at their door, claiming his friend is lost in the storm. But what starts as a rescue mission in soon becomes a baffling murder investigation. The dead man is a notorious drug dealer, and state police detectives suspect it was his friend who killed him. Bowditch isn’t so sure, but his vow not to interfere in the case is tested when he finds himself powerfully attracted to a beautiful woman....

    Kathleen says: "No. 3 in the Mike Bowditch series."

    Story

    "Bad Little Falls", is an outstanding mystery set in a small town in the wilds of Downeast Maine. It revolves around a recurring character named Mike Bowditch, a registered Maine Guide (like the author, Paul Doiron), and a Maine Game Warden, and a member of the state's law enforcement, who, through the previous novel, has been reassigned to one of the remotest areas of the state, and perhaps, the U.S.

    It starts in the middle of a severe winter, as if there any other kind there, as the sleeping town of Machias, the shire town of Washington County, discovers the activities of certain insomniac and dangerously troubled members of it's tiny community.

    The writing is descriptive and heartfelt. The area residents are by and large, desperately poor, and easily taken advantage of. There are some very bad people here as well, and Mike Bowditch, a fish out of water (again, as detailed in Doiron's first novel, "The Poacher's Son"), though a big fish taken to a small pond, falls in to protect a single mother and her odd son from several human predators. It's a cracking good mystery, and read masterfully by Henry Leyva, who performs the unique Downeast accent with grace and respect, as well as Rene Auberjonois, to this listener's ear. I live nearby, down near Acadia National Park, and it's an incredibly complex drawl, but Leyva couldn't have sounded so authentic without Mr. Doiron's careful ear for the language of this far-flung area.

    I highly recommend this, and look forward to another chapter in the life of Mike Bowditch, as he explores his new bailiwick.
