Last night the Friends sponsored an evening with author Paul Doiron. He is the creator of the crime series featuring Mike Bowditch, A State of Maine Game Warden. The first novel in the series, The Poacher's Son, was nominateed for an Edgar Award.
The next book, Trespasser, won the Maine Literary Award, was an American Booksellers Association Indie Bestseller, and has been called a "masterpiece of high-octane narrative" by Booklist.
During his visit he read from his forthcoming book, The Precipice, which sounds like it will be as riveting as the others. I read the first two which are great.
If you like thrillers with unique characters, you might like Mike Bowditch. He's new at his Game Warden job and is learning how to deal with the public, a bureaucracy and murderers.
Below are pictures of the event.
