I was so excited to win this book in a giveaway from the publisher! I haven't read the Poacher's Son, which is Doiron's 1st book, but I think I am going to have to read it soon! Even though I didn't read the 1st book, this story stood well on it's own. I loved the tone the author set and found myself completely immersed in this Maine small town. I really enjoyed Mike Bowditch and found him to be an extremely smart, multi-layered and strong lead character. All of the characters were well developed and became like living and breathing people to me. The story unfolded in a very natural progression and I found myself rapidly flipping the pages at the end to see how this story was going to end. I have to say, this is the first mystery in a VERY long time where I didn't have the end figured out and that is saying something. I thoroughly enjoyed this author's writing style and can't wait to read more of his future books.

Totally disturbing story...a really page turner...has you wondering about the characters LONG after the book is done. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

It was a very good plot but I was a bit put off by the seemingly irrational decisions the main character frequently took. He seemingly was an intelligent, experienced warden yet in this murder investigation he continuously did stupid things. All in all it kind of ruined the story for me.

I received an advanced copy of Trespasser through a Goodreads Giveaway. This was an excellent read with rich characters and a riveting plot. It can be a standalone novel so if you haven't read the Poacher's Son, you can still jump right in! I am going back and reading the Poacher's Son though because I enjoyed Trespasser so much. Doiron is definitely going on my must-read list.

However, writer seemed to lose focus toward end of book with an important scene which detracted from the reality of the story. In general, an interesting book with a nice twist.

Maine Game Warden, Mike Bowditch is just recovering from dealing with his notorious father in THE POACHER'S SON.  His girlfriend has decided to give him a second chance to spend more time at home, and to be "safe" in his job. Now negatively labeled as "the poacher's son", he is trying to live down this reputation, but this is difficult as he is once again fighting the current within his area.  Mike was called to the scene of an accident between a driver and a deer, but for some strange reason the girl has left the scene.  But did she really leave on her own, as she has been found brutally murdered in one of the Maine coast's "summer cabins"---huge summer homes for the vacationing rich. Her married lover is found in a four wheeler with his throat slit.  The authorities want to call this a murder/suicide, but Mike finds the girl's murder eerily like another murder that happened a number of years ago.  But since that murder was "solved" , with the perpetrated behind bars, things just don't add up, and Mike just can't leave well enough alone.  Mike is caught between those calling the convicted man innocent, and those who just want to close both cases, and they are not "playing nice".  Mike's girlfriend just wants him to consider his safety while investigating a crime that is NOT within the Game Warden's job description.  This book is definitely a thriller, but the play on atmosphere and the definite "Maine dialogue", adds a whole new dimension to the enjoyment of this book.  Once again, Paul Doiron has created a book of action so definitely within Maine, that the reader is transported to the seaside with the characters---multiplying the suspense for the reader twofold.  Definitely this series will continue to be on my reading list, going right on to the nest book--BAD LITTLE FALLS.

Every 2 weeks I go to the libarary and challenge myself to try a new author. Jackpot! Can't wait for future books by this author. I jumped into this before reading the 1st book but no worries. This story stands up just as it is although no doubt it is even better if you've read the first book. Congrats to the author and looking forward to more from Paul.

In this second mystery to feature Mike Bowditch, game warden, Mike is much harder to like than in the first book. At the start and end of the book, he is a sympathetic character, but his motivation for most the book is hard to fathom so he comes across as awfully self-centered. In this book, he is investigating a new murder as well as looking into a past murder, perhaps perpetrated by the same villain, all while he is at home supposedly on leave. In the first book, Bowditch's reason for becoming a game warden make sense, and the effect this had on his and his girlfriend's relationship make sense. He seems to come to some understanding of himself in "The Poacher's Son." In "Trespasser," it appears that he's lost this self-awareness; the reasons he made the choices he made in this outing didn't always make a lot of sense to either himself or the reader. However, Doiron did a great job of evoking the Maine woods and seaside, and the plot line kept my interest.

I got this one as part of a goodreads giveaway. I'm glad I did. Solid characters (I think I liked the various bad guys more than the protagonist :) ), great plot with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing, and fantastic climax. Wonderful read that I'd recommend to anyone who likes mysteries/thrillers.

I have been waiting with great anticipation for the latest installment of the Warden Mike Bowditch series from author Paul Doiron. His debut novel, The Poacher's Son, which was released last year was a fabulous thriller. Trespasser is just as good if not better. I love the character Mike Bowditch. He stumbles through life, a bit of a rebel, not really sure how to handle his relationship with his girl, but with a great need to do his job properly. His instincts are always dead on...he knew he should have tried harder to find the missing driver in the opening pages. This fast paced adventure thriller keeps you turning the pages! Doiron portrays the real Maine...the poverty of many of the citizens along side of the ocean-side summer homes of the wealthy. The obsession with ATVs that has gripped rural America and the new problems they've created. The characters in Doiron's Maine are realistic portrayals of its people. You don't have to have read The Poacher's Son to follow the story in Trespasser but a smart reader would read it first and would read it because it is an excellent book!

In Maine, Game Warden Mike Bowditch receives a call about a deer-auto accident on an isolated road. By the time Bowditch arrives at the scene, he finds blood on the road and the car nearby, but the woman and the deer are gone. Soon afterward the corpse of the female is found elsewhere. Her case reminds Bowditch of one from several years ago when a jury convicted lobsterman Erland Jefferts of the rape and murder of a wealthy college student and sentenced him to life in prison. As Bowditch makes inquiries, State officials warn him to mind his business. However, his life is already in shambles as he has little hope to regain his lost relationship with his girlfriend Sarah so he does not care what happens to him or his in the tank career. However, what he failed to factor in is his below the radar investigation places Sarah in peril. The second Bowditch police procedural (see The Poacher's Son) is an excellent Maine "mud season" whodunit. As Mike tries to regain his muddied personal equilibrium, he works a murky case that his superiors tell him to back away from for his own good. With a strong support cast and a troubled but dedicated lead, fans will appreciate this exhilarating tense regional mystery. Harriet Klausner
