Overview

Massacre Pond (Mike Bowditch Series #4) by Paul Doiron

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.

Mike Bodwitch, intrepid Maine game warden and protagonist, continues his pursuit of solving cases; despite, and sometime in spite of, interference from his superiors. Interference and/or opposition from superiors and/or agencies higher in the pecking order appears to have become cause de rigueur in the genre. This convention however, does not distract from the story. Not quite a page turner, but a story that keep the reader coming back, and when finished, waiting for the next book in the series. Out of five stars I’d rate it as three and one half.

This my first read in this series with Maine warden Mike Bowditch. The wardens appear to be a strange mix of wildlife warden and country policeman that don't have an equivalent in the UK making it difficult to relate to. I found it pleasantly refreshing for the hero / central character to be the lowest rank warden and not the sheriff or lieutenant. The storyline is is triggered by a wildlife massacre however this leads to other crimes to be investigated. Dealing with his own personal issues Bowditch has also to contend with being sidelined on the investigation of the crime he discovered. Not a bad book however not a riveting read either.

I highly recommend the Mike Bowditch series by Mark Doiron! If you seek mystery and adventure and love the main character, who doesn't play by the rules, this series is for you.Bowditch is a game Warden in Maine, keeping an eye out for poachers and solving crimes. I'm reading the fourth in the series and have pre-ordered his newest book!
