Overview

In this riveting new novel from Edgar finalist Paul Doiron, Bowditch joins a desperate search for two missing hikers as Maine wildlife officials deal with a frightening rash of coyote attacks.

When two female hikers disappear in the Hundred Mile Wilderness-the most remote stretch along the entire Appalachian Trail-Maine game warden Mike Bowditch joins the desperate search to find them.

Hope turns to despair after two unidentified corpses are discovered-their bones picked clean by coyotes. Do the bodies belong to the missing hikers? And were they killed by the increasingly aggressive wild dogs?

Soon, all of Maine is gripped with the fear of killer coyotes. But Bowditch has his doubts. His new girlfriend, wildlife biologist Stacey Stevens, insists the scavengers are being wrongly blamed. She believes a murderer may be hiding in the offbeat community of hikers, hippies, and woodsmen at the edge of the Hundred Mile Wilderness. When Stacey herself disappears along the Appalachian Trail, the hunt for answers becomes personal.

Can Mike Bowditch find the woman he loves before the most dangerous animal in the North Woods strikes again?

Book six in Edgar finalist Doiron’s series featuring Mike Bowditch (after 2014’s The Bone Orchard) has the Appalachian Trail game warden reluctantly diverted from a romantic weekend with a new girlfriend to participate in a hunt for two young women who’ve disappeared in the deepest part of the Hundred-Mile Wilderness. Initially paired with an oddball extreme hiker, Bob “Nonstop” Nissen, Mike gets ample opportunity to display his mental and physical prowess, zeroing in on the missing hikers while battling the elements, bureaucracy, and the Dows, a family of very unfriendly sociopaths. Stage and TV actor Leyva has been reading the series since its debut. His portrayal of Mike, the novel’s narrator, has been youthful, eager, and slightly naive, entirely appropriate for the start of the character’s career, but he’s now sounding a bit jejune for an experienced game warden and too soft to gain the attention, much less the respect, of the rough customers he meets on the trail. When it comes to those tough guys, however, Leyva’s interpretation is spot on. A Minotaur hardcover. (June)
