"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 "Breathless pacing, dark humor, wildlife, and vivid characters." --Boston Globe, Quintessential Summer Reading List "Doiron continues to deliver vivid descriptions of rural Maine, a satisfying mystery (this one with tantalizing loose ends), and a conflicted main character. Those who relish outdoor mysteries, especially ones set in New England, will appreciate this latest entry." --Library Journal "Paul Doiron is shaping up as the Tony Hillerman of the east. . . . presenting central characters who are brave and brainy but all too human and fallible. . . . [Doiron's] storytelling is controlled and always enthralling. Just like Tony Hillerman's." --Toronto Star on The Precipice "Doiron brings his gift for making the Maine woods live and breathe to a taut whodunit in his stellar sixth novel featuring game warden Mike Bowditch. . . . Multidimensional characters and a high level of suspense help make this a winner." --Publishers Weekly (starred) on The Precipice "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 series keeps getting better and better...The Precipice will keep readers guessing--and biting their nails--right until the end. 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) "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)
