    Bad Little Falls does not disappoint!

    Paul Doiron is an excellent writer who takes the reader right into the setting he is writing about. The story is set in Washington County in Maine where Mike is helping a beautiful woman with a dark past and her troubled young son who is growing up in a broken home which is riddled with drug and alcohol abuse.

    As Mike is deep in the middle of a murder investigation which happens during a severe snowstorm, Doiron's description of the storm makes you feel like you are also a victim of this extreme weather condition.

    This is the third book in the Mike Bowditch series. I love reading about Mike (and his flawed personality) who continually grows in each book of the series. He is constantly searching for his soul mate but can't seem to get his act together. But these characteristics make him a very lovable game warden.

    Read Bad Little Falls and you will not be disappointed!

    Excellant

    Enjoyed the entire read. Have now ordered "Trespasser" which is #2 in the series. Story line holds your attention.

    Mike Bowditch is a Maine Game warden who constantly finds himsel

    Mike Bowditch is a Maine Game warden who constantly finds himself in conflict with his superiors.  Being the infamous son of a dangerous man, now deceased--THE POACHER'S SON---does not help Mike's reputation.  He has just recently been relegated to the "Down East" northernmost section of Maine, where people are dirt poor, mostly uneducated, and surrounded with illegal drug trade from Canada.  Drugs and alcohol are a way of life for many of these folks, and a national floundering economy isn't helping matters.




    Mike is called out on a cold winter's blustery day because a half frozen man has shown up on a couples' door step, claiming that his friend is missing in the snow.  The friend is found dead, and presumed murdered.  Once again, the police should takes things over at this point, but friends and other relationships keep Mike in the center of everything.  He even becomes involved with the half frozen man's beautiful sister and her strange 12 year old son.  Actually, this unusually lone boy's copious journals plays a very important roll in the story, with excerpts written into this book. 




    Descriptions of characters and scenery bring the reader right into the century of the story. So much so, that on the hottest day of the year in my area, I was left feeling cold as descriptions of snow drifts, ice ponds, and frost bit filled these pages.  Mike's  life and experiences with nature and the people of Maine grows more interesting with each further adventure.  Good, evil, and the intermingling  of the failings of mankind in day to day life should make for many more tales in this series.

    Recommended but wear snow shoes

    Read all three in the "Mike Bowditch" series. Good stories but, by the time I got through with the third book, I felt as though I was reading an on-going weather report.

    Flawed protagonist

    Mike, the protagonist, is so flawed that reading about him is almost painful. The plot is run of the mill.
