Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

When Maine game warden Mike Bowditch is tasked with shooting invasive feral hogs that are tearing up the forest in his district, he makes a horrific discovery -- a dead baby buried in a shallow grave.

Even more disturbing: evidence suggests the infant was the child of a young woman who was presumed to have died four years earlier after she disappeared from a group rafting trip.

As Bowditch assists the reopened investigation, he begins to suspect that some of his neighbors aren't who they seem to be. When violence strikes close to home, he realizes that his unknown enemies will stop at nothing to keep their terrible secrets.

Mike Bowditch has bucked the odds his whole career, but this time the intrepid warden may have finally followed his hunches one step too far.

   Extraordinary writing talent
His books are always new and exciting, and he is knowledgeable about the state. His descriptive passages are excellent. His plots are well conceived, his characters are drawn and his dialogue is realistic. The reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is due to his digs at our former governor. I understand that he has no use for him, but I find it annoying to see the jabs coming from the mouths of his girlfriend and the main character. One of the things I like about Doiron's books is that they are edited to a high standard, so much so that a lot of books now in circulation are cut below Doiron's books. I appreciate that.
Abuse can be triggered. Stand- alone is easy to follow and difficult to put down. There are no editing errors, violence or drag- you- down drama. Compelling storyline with descriptive writing that draws the reader into each scene both physically and emotionally. Procedures, actions, and reactions are realistic. The characters are believable. Compelling and memorable dialogue. The moral of the story was that the persistence of evil in the world is often made possible by failures of imagination. He says that drunks have a name for the idea that moving to a new place will free them from enslavement to the bottle. It's called the geographical cure, and it's the best thing to do when you can't do anything else. Bad decisions are harder to abandon than good decisions. There is no desire to re- read this story. I'm interested in other works by this author.
   Totally Maine mysteries
This is a mystery series for residents and non- residents of Maine who enjoy the rugged individualism of the people and the beauty of the environment. It is hard to believe that Doiron is a PFC as he has infused his novels with authentic locations, incorporated actual events and nailed the role of a game warden. I eagerly await the next one, I have read all of them.
   We love everything Doiron writes including Knife Creek
My wife and I are both avid readers. Mike Bowditch, a Maine game warden, is one of the characters we look forward to. They allow the story to meld well and make it exciting to read. When Doiron's books hit the market, we pre order them from Amazon so they arrive at home. We were in the boondocks and out of the country when it became available, so we just got to it when we came home. When the other put is down for more than an hour, we both read Knife Creek. We loved it so much that we finished it together. We have to wait a year or so for the next Bowditch series, which is disappointing It's definitely worth it.
   Sharp As Ever
Mike Bowditch is an interesting and exciting person. Doiron in The Poacher's Son created a lot of excitement. The descriptions of the wilderness add to the enjoyment. The main character and supporting characters are unique individuals and each contribute to the novel. This was an exciting and enjoyable read with lots of action and twists. Bowditch's criminal investigation involvements seem to assume more of his time than checking fishing licenses and violations. It provides the reader with more excitement while still getting to know Bowditch's personality. The next part of this series will be enjoyable.
   Paul Doiron never disappoints...a perfect summer read.
This is a great summer read because of the dialogue that rings true and the well paced storyline. Knife Creek is another exceptional novel written by a writer whose skill with words and plot lines continues to impress. Mr. Doiron's talent at showing his main characters evolution over multiple novels and his well reasearched page turners have kept me waiting on each new release. You won't be disappointed if you read the book and then read his other novels.
