In this thrilling entry in Edgar Award finalist Paul Doiron's bestselling series, a deadly attack on one of Maine's last wild wolves leads Game Warden Mike Bowditch to an even bigger criminal conspiracy. While on vacation, Warden Investigator Mike Bowditch receives a strange summons from Billy Cronk, one of his oldest friends and a man he had to reluctantly put behind bars for murder. Billy wants him to investigate a new female prison guard with a mysterious past, and Mike feels honor-bound to help his friend. But when the guard becomes the victim in a brutal attack at the prison, he realizes there may be a darker cover-up at play—and that Billy and his family might be at risk. Then Mike receives a second call for help, this time from a distant mountain valley where Shadow, a wolf-hybrid he once cared for, has been found shot by an arrow and clinging to life. He searches for the identity of the bowman, but his investigation is blocked at every turn by the increasingly hostile community. And when Billy’s wife and children are threatened, Mike finds himself tested like never before. How can he possibly keep the family safe when he has enemies of his own on his trail? Torn between loyalties, Mike Bowditch must respond in the only way he knows how: by bending every law and breaking every rule to keep his loved ones safe and the true predators at bay.

I enjoyed this novel, a fast paced thriller, set in the rugged country side of Maine, learning about game wardens, who seem to have authority our Fisheries& Wild Life Wardens don’t have, the crazy, ever-present demand of Americans to own guns & hunting weapons of the bow & arrow type, how many of Maine’s birds are similar to ours, here on the West Coast of BC One quirk I found hard to ignore is the author’s penchant to use participle verbs in place of very simple but elegant English. I look forward to his new ebook novel, released June 2020

This is a great read! I love a book that’s entertaining but I still learn something new, in this case (a) the importance of game wardens and (b) all about wolves and wolf hybrids. The author writes evocatively of the rougher parts of the State of Maine, a world away from the luxurious seaside Homes of Martha Stewart and her ilk. This is a well-plotted, well-written multi-layered mystery story that has moments of humour (the Cronklets!) and humanity. Two thumbs up!

A good mystery spiced with social and environmental issues.
