When Maine game warden Mike Bowditch is tasked with shooting invasive feral hogs that are tearing up the forest in his district, he makes a horrific discovery — a dead baby buried in a shallow grave.

Even more disturbing: evidence suggests the infant was the child of a young woman who was presumed to have died four years earlier after she disappeared from a group rafting trip.

As Bowditch assists the reopened investigation, he begins to suspect that some of his neighbors aren’t who they seem to be. When violence strikes close to home, he realizes that his unknown enemies will stop at nothing to keep their terrible secrets.

Mike Bowditch has bucked the odds his whole career, but this time the intrepid warden may have finally followed his hunches one step too far.

Praise for Knife Creek

"Narrator Henry Leyva keeps listeners on the edge of their seats with his delivery of a story with more murder suspects than Maine has pine trees. He makes the Dow family, reprehensible mountain trash, sound so real that listeners will hate them." -AudioFile on The Precipice

“A violent, suspenseful, fast-paced tale written in Doiron's customary tight, vivid prose, with his keen eye for both idiosyncratic Maine characters and the beauty of the natural landscape.” —Associated Press

"Doiron [makes] the Maine woods live and breathe. . . . Multidimensional characters and a high level of suspense help make this a winner." -Publishers Weekly (starred) on The Precipice

"Doiron's series keeps getting better and better. . . . New readers can jump into the series here just fine, but be warned: You'll be compelled to read the rest."-RT Book Reviews (Top Pick) on The Precipice

"The Bone Orchard [is] both a rich exploration of character and a satisfying mystery story." -Bruce DeSilva, Associated Press

"A tense and clever mystery . . . superbly well-written." -Boston Globe on Massacre Pond
