No one knows exactly when it began or where it originated. A terrifying new plague is spreading like wildfire across the country, striking cities one by one: Boston, Detroit, Seattle. The doctors call it Draco Incendia Trychophyton. To everyone else it's Dragonscale, a highly contagious, deadly spore that marks its hosts with beautiful black and gold marks across their bodies - before causing them to burst into flames. Millions are infected; blazes erupt everywhere. There is no antidote. No one is safe.

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....

Inaccurate descriptions/depictions of Maine warden service & law enforcement procedures. Inaccurate pronunciation of area towns and river: St. Stephens and Narraguagus River in particular.

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.

It's "skOW-hegan" (as in "cow"), & "BANG-gor", Maine. Otherwise good job with the Maine accent!
