By the Anthony Award- and Edgar Award-nominated author of The Poacher's Son. 35,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

Anthony- and Edgar-award nominated author Paul Doiron delivers another "masterpiece of high-octane narrative" (Booklist) with his newest harrowing thriller about the hunt for a murderer at the height of a major snowstorm

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 rustic cabin of a terrified couple. A raving and halffrozen

man has appeared at their door, claiming his friend is lost

in the storm. But what starts as a rescue mission in the wilderness

soon becomes a baffling murder investigation. The dead man is a

notorious drug dealer, and state police detectives 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. The boy seems to know something about

what really happened in the blizzard, but he is keeping his secrets

locked in a cryptic notebook, and Mike fears for the safety of the

strange child. Meanwhile, an anonymous tormentor has decided

to make the new warden's life a living hell. Alone and outgunned,

Bowditch turns for assistance to his old friend, the legendary

bush pilot Charley Stevens. But in this snowbound landscape--

where smugglers wage blood feuds by night--help seems very

far away indeed. If Bowditch is going to catch a killer, he must

survive on his own wits and discover strength he never knew he

I have enjoyed the Mike Bowdich series so far -- he is an interesting character and is developing nicely in each book. I do not find this author's efforts to be predictable, so that has made me a follower. I am looking forward to his next in the series.

These Mike Bowdich stories are every bit as good as C.J. Box and his Joe Pickett series. The thing I enjoy most is the troubles Bowdich gets into, but his always successful results.
These books are all worth reading if you want page turners.!

I think better than the other two. It's a different story line being set in the wilds of Maine & it being a game warden. I mean different to a city or town & different to a cop. I hope he keeps on writing these stories with Mike Bowditch. It's good.

Nothing outstanding, but I enjoy these mysteries set in the wilds of Maine.

This is his best so far!! Didn't see the ending coming like in his earlier ones. Love his background knowledge about game warden's. Also appreciate his author's note explaining what's really fact from fiction.
