Publisher's Summary

Edgar finalist Paul Doiron's superb new novel featuring Game Warden Mike Bowditch and a beautiful, enigmatic woman whose mission to save the Maine wilderness may have incited a murder.

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 already causing in the region - becomes far more sinister when a shocking murder is discovered and Mike's investigation becomes a hunt to find a ruthless killer. In order to solve the controversial case, Bowditch risks losing everything he holds dear: his best friends, his career as a law enforcement officer, and the love of his life.

The beauty and magnificence of the Maine woods is the setting for a story of suspense and violence when one powerful woman's missionary zeal comes face to face with ruthless cruelty.

    Story
    "Hackneyed prose & dialog-Stereotype characters-DNF"

    I started this because of complimentary comparisons with C.J. Box and Joe Pickett. For me, it isn't even close. I found the protagonist, game warden Mike Bowditch immature and irritatingly whiny. His dialog quickly became predictable as well as the personalities of the other characters. The overdrawn conflict between the "tree hugger," former hippy, wealthy landowner and local hunters and those economically dependent on them. Does she have to be so dislikable as to have no allies, even though she wants to create a National Park? Even if she doesn't like or trust government in general or state Department of Natural Resources in particular, why isn't she working with NGO's such as the The Nature Conservancy, the Environmental Defense Fund, or more radical groups such as PETA or Greenpeace? I invested about two hours of listening, in part because I found Henry Leyva such a good reader, before giving up.

    Story
    "Series Only Gets Better"

    This is the best book in the series so far (I am listening to them in order). This story had more depth than the others and the character development exceeded my expectation based on the writer's previous books. The main character is further developed, showing a depth and maturity not seen in the prior books.Although the end was predicable, the route included twists, turns and detours not expected.
