Doiron to sign copies of 'Bad Little Falls'
Camden — Paul Doiron, editor of Down East magazine, will be signing copies of "Bad Little Falls," his newest murder mystery involving Maine game warden Mike Bowditch, at the Owl and Turtle Bookshop, 33 Bayview St. in Camden, on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m.
"Bad Little Falls," finds Warden Bowditch exiled to the backwoods of down east Maine, near the Canadian border, because of his impulsive disregard for authority in the past. In that wilderness of peat bogs and poverty, Bowditch must deal with a frozen zebra; an alcoholic veterinarian; a wilderness survivalist driving sled dogs; a beautiful employee of the month at McDonalds; a shy teenager obsessed with his cryptic journals; tattooed drug dealers; surly hunters at a wild game ranch; the confusing interface between wardens, police, and the sheriff; a blizzard and a skunk.
Doiron's descriptions of the wilderness of down east Maine and its people are intoxicating. Doiron is a registered Maine Guide and loves to visit the wilderness with his wife, Kristen Lindquist who is a poet and the director of the Coastal Mountains Land Trust.
Doiron said that he writes about the beauty and charm of Maine for Down East magazine, and he writes about the wilder, more sinister side of Maine in his novels. His first novel, "The Poacher's Son," was a finalist for the Edgar Award for best first mystery novel.
