Camden author and Down East Magazine editor-in-chief Paul Doiron will sign copies of his new book “Massacre Pond,” as well as the three earlier books in his Mike Bowditch crime fiction series, Saturday, Aug. 24, at 2 to 4 p.m. at hello hello books, 316 Main St.

“Massacre Pond” opens on an unseasonably hot October morning. Game warden Mike Bowditch is called to the scene of a bizarre crime in eastern Maine: the corpses of 10 moose have been found senselessly butchered on the estate of Elizabeth Morse, a wealthy animal rights activist who is buying up huge parcels of timberland to create a new national park.

Doiron is a Registered Maine Guide and has won the Barry Award, the Strand Critics Award and the Maine Literary Award for crime fiction and has been nominated for the Edgar Award, the Anthony Award, the Macavity Award, and the Thriller Award.
