Bestselling author and Edgar-Award finalist Paul Doiron knows Maine better than just about anyone, and in this series that follows Maine game warden Mike Bowditch, he proves it.

Here together for the first time in one thrill-ride collection are the first three books in the critically acclaimed series:

The Poacher's Son
Set in the wilds of Maine, this is an explosive tale of an estranged son thrust into the hunt for a murderous fugitive-his own father.

Trespasser
On a fog shrouded road in Maine, a young woman disappears after hitting a deer with her car. When Bowditch is called to investigate, he uncovers a web of lies and deceit that leads to a killer who may have already gotten away with murder.

Bad Little Falls
Doiron delivers another "masterpiece of high-octane narrative" (Booklist) in this harrowing thriller about the hunt for a murderer at the height of a major snowstorm.

Praise for The Mike Bowditch Series, Books 1-3

Bad Little Falls is a jewel of a book. Doiron has gotten it all magnificently right: a hell of a good mystery, beautifully drawn landscape and characters so evocatively written they follow you off the page. Buy this. The guy can write.” —Nevada Barr, New York Times bestselling author of Rope

“Doiron's third Bowditch entry is riveting and honest, with full-depth characters and a landscape that isn't cutting any slack. Readers of Nevada Barr and C. J. Box will enjoy this similar tale, with the added surprise of a refreshing hero whose youth and inexperience Doiron skillfully twists into an asset.” —Booklist

“A high-stakes, high-tension yarn in which you keep wishing everything would turn out fine for the deeply flawed, deeply sympathetic hero.” —Kirkus

“Excellent . . . a murder case with some truly wicked twists. Dorion matches strong characters with effective prose and subtle characterizations. Fans of Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight series, likewise set in a remote region close to Canada, will find a lot to like.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
