Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Doiron's plot is heart-pounding, filled with startling twists and turns. The main characters, some lovable and others despicable, are all multidimensional. And the stylish prose is pitch-perfect, especially in its evocative descriptions of the beauty, and occasionally the ugliness, of coastal Maine in early spring. The story's slam-bang ending leaves Mike's life in tatters, and the reader anxious to know what the author has in store for him next. (Associated Press )

Doiron's sense of place, and of the people of Maine, adds lush nuance to this suspense-filled read. Well-paced, with an interesting array of elegantly rounded characters, this effort more than lives up to the promise of Doiron's debut. (RT Book Review )

A complex, heartfelt, altogether impressive piece of work. (Kirkus Reviews ) --Kirkus Reviews

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 remote cabin of a terrified couple. A raving and half-frozen man has appeared at their door, claiming his friend is lost in the storm. But what starts as a rescue mission soon becomes a baffling murder investigation.

The dead man is an infamous drug dealer and state police suspect it was his own 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 with a dark past and a troubled young son who harbours secrets of his own...

Praise for The Poacher's Son:

An excellent debut - filled with murder, betrayal and a terrific sense of place. C.J. Box.

A stunning debut...At its heart this is a tale of bitter betrayal, lost hopes and broken dreams. The book has a tautness that is impossible to forget and which left me close to tears. It is also the first in a series. Its successor, Trespasser, also featuring Bowditch, is on the way. Grab him now. Daily Mail.

Stunning vistas...eye popping scenes - The New York Times Book Review.

This is a compelling, moving and utterly impressive debut - Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog.

The Poacher's Son is one of the best written debut novels I have read in years. This novel has it all - a great plot, a wonderful Maine woods setting and a truly remarkable and believable cast of characters. - Nelson de Mille.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A series that deepens over time 20 août 2012
Par MW - Publié sur Amazon.com
I don't read tons of mysteries, but the series that I like (there are a few) feature a main character who develops over time. Mike Bowditch is young, kind of a mess, a guy I want to root for. In each book, he reveals more of his messed-up psyche, but also more of his compassion and vulnerability. I also love a good evocation of place, and Paul Doiron is amazingly good at conjuring the natural darkness, power, and beauty of the Maine landscape, which always figures into the mystery at hand. I also loved the little boy in this one--a weird kid that Mike reluctantly relates to. The mystery is layered and compelling, and the landscape serves as a compelling character all by itself. Doiron is on top of his game here.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I'd listen to the next one too 20 octobre 2012
Par Luanne Ollivier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Bad Little Falls is the third book in Paul Doiron's Mike Bowditch series, but a first read of this author for me.

Bowditch is a game warden. He's been sent to a remote outpost in Maine by his superiors for past transgressions. And it's mighty cold in Maine in the winter. One of his first call outs is for a man missing in a snowstorm. His friend made it to the house of a local couple, but the other man is still out there. When that man is found dead by means other than the weather, it becomes a murder investigation. And the dead man - he's a known drug dealer.

The weather is cold and so is the welcome from the locals for Mike. Someone nails a dead coyote skin to his door and his superior officer makes light of it. He seems to be butting heads with nearly everyone in town - a renowned wilderness expert, the local sheriff, local trappers and more. The one person who doesn't seem to hate him is Jamie Sewall - MacDonald's employee of the month, a single mom to a strange little boy and a woman with lots of ties to the murder investigation.

Doiron has written an entertaining if not overly involved mystery. There are lots of red herrings and possible suspects. I did find myself wondering at a game warden's seeming over involvement in a murder investigation. I enjoyed the actual references to game warden activity (the frozen zebra was a great story), but there weren't that many. I follow another series featuring a game warden who is a little older, a little more established and a little wiser. I found Bowditch's decision to become romantically involved with Jamie Sewell somewhat rash, hurried and unbelievable. And one sided as well - we never really hear from Jamie herself. He's been exiled to Maine by his superiors because of his impulsiveness and bad judgement, but it really doesn't seem to have sunk in, although he mentions needing to change several times.

Doiron is a native of Maine and his descriptions of the land and the locale have that extra ring of authenticity.

I chose to listen to Bad Little Falls. Henry Leyva was the reader. He's got a well modulated voice that is easily understood. His voices for the characters were well done and easy to differentiate. The voices that required accents - many Maine characters and his French Canadian boss - were believable. The voice of the young boy reading his journal was definitely creepy. Mike is a younger character and the voice for Mike seemed to fit the mental image I'd come up with.

The jury's still out for me on this character. Doiron received numerous awards and nominations for the first two books in this series. I think I would have a better appreciation for this character if I had read those The Poacher's Son and Trespasser first. The ending was a bit unsatisfying, but there are two future books planned for Mike. But, I'd try this author again to see where Mike goes from here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Couldn't put it down! 12 août 2012
Par Figment - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Bad Little Falls is the best yet! Right from page 1, I needed to know more about Lucas Sewall and his revealing notebook, and in characteristic fashion, Doiron weaves the document's contents through the story as it unfolds. The characters are familiar and real (I think one lives down my road), from a part of Maine that seldom finds its way to the fiction shelf. Through Mike Bowditch's eyes, we explore the "other" side of Maine: beyond idyllic landscapes and tourist attractions, we meet authentic, complicated people struggling to make ends meet by cobbling together sources of income and food (some legal, some not). As in real life, the bad guys aren't completely evil and the good guys are humanly flawed. They are all people I wanted to know more about.

The book arrived from Amazon Saturday morning; I read all night to find out what would happen--and now, I'll give it a second reading just to appreciate Paul Doiron's writing as he describes weather conditions, landscapes, and the particular details that make his characters come alive. He's a master of imagery; his powerful account of searching for Randall Cates in the blizzard took my breath away: I was right there with them. A second journey through frozen Washington County is the perfect antidote to this humid August day!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 another Great read - A review from a Maine Retired Warden 28 août 2013
Par jonnylaw - Publié sur Amazon.com
Having been a Maine Game Warden myself, now retired - and having written my own memoirs, I'm totally consumed by Paul Doiron and his writings. The Poacher's son, Trespass, Bad Little Falls, and Massacre Pond have a real sense of reality involving some of the coincidental descriptions of the real wardens within the areas Paul describes.
Bad Little Falls was especially a real mystery and a great read. I couldn't put it down.
I've personally met Paul and admire his down to earth attitude as much as his writing skills and his superb knowledge of the outdoors, including his knowledge of the very department I once worked for.
Paul captivates the reader into following along in the mystery of the time - and I find it as almost impossible to put his book down once I've started reading it.
If you enjoy a good mystery - and a realistic taste of Maine wildlife adventures, Paul's books are a must read. I highly recommend his writings. I'm sure there will be more to come - at least I hope so.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Good Continuation of Series 12 septembre 2012
Par Badman - Publié sur Amazon.com
The third book in the Mike Bowditch series continues from the 2nd book, and is quite a good effort. The Maine Game Warden often finds himself in the middle of situations that a man of his young years has trouble dealing with, but he somehow muddles through. First, unlike a lot of series characters, the changes in Mike's life since the last book are more than cosmetic. He's been transferred to the farthest point NE on the map in Maine, a blighted area full of drugs, poachers and generally a lower class of people than he is used to interacting with. If anything, it's even colder and has worse weather than anything he is used to, and to top it off, his new boss is a jerk. He's living in a trailer driving a beat up old vehicle, and has managed to piss off one of the area's big shots, the owner of a canned hunting range, and people are starting to vandalize his home.

As you can see Mike has fallen far, but he realizes his behavior and attitude is what caused him a lot of problems before, and is trying to improve his life. Into this comes a new mystery and perhaps a damsel in distress, who Mike thinks needs rescuing from an awful situation involving a karate teacher ex-husband, a drug dealing ex-boyfriend and brother, and a son who has many secrets in a journal he keeps.

As usual Paul Doiron weaves a great tale out of the atmosphere and people of NE Maine. Reminds me a lot of the Steve Hamilton series of books, both in the setting and the main character (although Mike is definitely more gung ho and less laid back than Hamilton's series character). Doiron does a good job of making the harsh environment as much a danger as whoever is killing off people in the community, and death comes to anyone unfortunate to have their car break down in the country or cross a semi-frozen lake in the middle of a snowstorm (in a nerve wracking chase scene). So far the three stories have done a good job of setting up what appears to be an interesting situation for Mike in further books in this series, and I'll definitely keep reading if they are as good as the first three.
