Paul Doiron is an excellent writer who takes the reader right into the Maine setting he is writing about. The story is set in Washington County in Maine where Mike is helping a beautiful woman with a dark past and her troubled young son who is growing up in a broken home which is riddled with drug and alcohol abuse.

As Mike is deep in the middle of a murder investigation which happens during a severe snowstorm, Doiron's description of the storm makes you feel like you are also a victim of this extreme weather condition.

This is the third book in the Mike Bowditch series. I love reading about Mike and his flawed personality who continually grows in each book of the series. He is constantly searching for his soul mate but can't seem to get his act together. But these characteristics make him a very lovable game warden.

Read Bad Little Falls and you will not be disappointed. The book is a real page turner packed with adventure! ( )

What caught my eye is a note from Nevada Barr on the book sleeve. I figured if she liked it I couldn't go wrong. Not a bad mystery. I'm only giving it a 3 because it jumped around some and I prefer to have my characters a little more in depth. But I would read another one. ( )

Well plotted story with lots of threads and interesting characters, largely set in real Maine locations. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312558481, Hardcover)

Anthony- and Edgar-award nominated author Paul Doiron delivers another “masterpiece of high-octane narrative” (Booklist) with his newest harrowing thriller about the hunt for a murderer at the height of a major snowstorm

Maine game warden Mike Bowditch has been sent into exile,
transferred by his superiors to a remote outpost on the Canadian
border. When a blizzard descends on the coast, Bowditch is
called to the rustic cabin of a terrified couple. A raving and halffrozen
man has appeared at their door, claiming his friend is lost
in the storm. But what starts as a rescue mission in the wilderness
soon becomes a baffling murder investigation. The dead man is a
notorious drug dealer, and state police detectives suspect it was
his own friend who killed him. Bowditch isn’t so sure, but his
vow not to interfere in the case is tested when he finds himself
powerfully attracted to a beautiful woman with a dark past and
a troubled young son. The boy seems to know something about
what really happened in the blizzard, but he is keeping his secrets
locked in a cryptic notebook, and Mike fears for the safety of the
strange child. Meanwhile, an anonymous tormentor has decided
to make the new warden’s life a living hell. Alone and outgunned,
Bowditch turns for assistance to his old friend, the legendary
bush pilot Charley Stevens. But in this snowbound landscape—
where smugglers wage blood feuds by night—help seems very
far away indeed. If Bowditch is going to catch a killer, he must
survive on his own wits and discover strength he never knew he
