    Set in the wilds of Maine, this is an explosive tale of an estranged son thrust into the hunt for a murderous fugitive - his own father. Game warden Mike Bowditch returns home one evening to find an alarming voice from the past on his answering machine: his father, Jack, a hard-drinking womanizer who makes his living poaching illegal game. An even more frightening call comes the next morning from the police: They are searching for the man who killed a beloved local cop the night before - and his father is their prime suspect.

    Edgar finalist Paul Doiron's new novel featuring Game Warden Mike Bowditch. On an unseasonably hot October morning, Bowditch is called to the scene of a bizarre crime: the corpses of seven moose have been found senselessly butchered on the estate of Elizabeth Morse, a wealthy animal rights activist who is buying up huge parcels of timberland to create a new national park. What at first seems like mindless slaughter - retribution by locals for the job losses Morse's plan is causing in the region - becomes far more sinister when a shocking murder is discovered.

The police interview everyone they can find who came in contact with the college students and learn that the women were lovers who had been keeping their relationship secret from their Evangelical parents in Georgia.

    Nice enough story, but a little disorganized.

    Yes, but it's difficult to describe. The premise is that this warden solves the mystery...sort of. But the whole thing seems to jump around, and while..Show More »
