Description

Massacre Pond is 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.

Professional reviews

"Beautiful descriptions of the Maine woods are told from the viewpoint of a game warden who becomes entangled in his second mystery. A subplot (based on real life) involves an entrepreneur/philanthropist who wants to create a national park with her own land. Sadly, neither the story nor the narrator rises to the occasion. Henry Leyva does a decent job portraying protagonist Mike Bowditch, providing a straightforward voice for the narrative and appropriate emotional levels when necessary. However, his renditions of Franco-American and Downeast accents are painful to the ear, and his overall timing stumbles in many places, resulting in sentences with odd phrasing. There are also a number of mispronunciations of Maine expressions that will be noticeable to those familiar with the locale. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
