In this original short story in the bestselling Mike Bowditch mystery series by Paul Doiron, Mike is confronted with a case of stolen identity.

When the body of a young man is pulled from a submerged car in Roque Harbor, rookie game warden Mike Bowditch is shocked when the man’s driver’s license identifies him as none other than…Mike Bowditch. For weeks, Mike and his colleagues have been fielding reports of a man terrorizing the locals while posing as a game warden, wielding a plastic pin-on badge and claiming to be “Warden Bowditch”. Who is the imposter, and how did he end up dead in the bottom of a harbor? Mike must uncover the truth in order to clear his own name.

Praise for The Imposter

Praise for the Mike Bowditch mysteries:

“Doiron captures the stark beauty of his setting.”—New York Times Book Review for Stay Hidden

“Fans of outdoors procedurals, like those by William Kent Krueger or C. J. Box, will be delighted.” —Booklist for Almost Midnight

“Few writers can summon a place as well as Paul Doiron depicts rural Maine…he has Raymond Chandler’s touch for the tiny detail that makes a place central to a story…a rare treat.” —The Globe and Mail for Almost Midnight

“Doiron is at his finest…a marvel of a thriller.” —Shelf Awareness for Stay Hidden

“Outstanding…Doiron balances nuanced characterizations and intelligent plotting perfectly.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) for Stay Hidden

“As always with a Doiron novel, the characters are so well-drawn you can almost reach out and shake their hands, and the rural landscape is so vividly portrayed that the reader can smell wildflowers, marvel at the swarms of fireflies and feel the sting of the blood-thirsty insects. But the author's finest achievement is the evolution of Mike Bowditch himself.” —Associated Press for Knife Creek
