    Like the flick of a white-tailed deer, you may be in range of the receiving end of a bullet. Hunting season and all, you know.....Was it a careless accident of bad judgment and circumstances or was the unfortunate victim an actual victim?Mike Bowditch, newly sporting the credentials of Maine Warden Investigator, is called out to Maquoit Island off the coast of Maine. Maquoit is the foggiest place on the Atlantic seaboard with that same dense fog ...

    STAY HIDDEN is the ninth book in the Mike Bowditch series and I was thrilled once again step into Mike's world. Now, I have only read two books previously in this series, but I enjoy this series very much. Especially since reading about a game warden is a bit different from the usual police or sheriff novels I usually read.READ THE REST OF THE REVIEW OVER AT FRESH FICTION!

    Among a seemingly skyrocketing trend of domestic noir, unreliable narrators, and unlikable characters, Maine author Paul Doiron offers something rather timeless: an engaging series centred on an honourable and interesting detective operating in a distinct and well-evoked setting. STAY HIDDEN is the ninth Mike Bowditch mystery, and it sees the Maine game warden finding his feet in his new role of Warden Investigator. Doiron, who was a longtime mag...

    Review: STAY HIDDEN by Paul Doiron(Mike Bowditch #9)Newly appointed as a Warden Investigator, Maine Game Warden is assigned to his first hunting death incident, on an isolated Atlantic island. Mike doesn't exactly acquit himself with glory, though in his defense, this is his first investigation and the islanders are both aloof and secretive. A vacationing woman is shot while hanging laundry, supposedly a hunting accident. Danger and revelation ab...

    Oh my. Mike Bowditch seems finally to be coming into his own. I always forget how young he is. His life experience makes him seem so much older...not necessarily wiser. I really enjoy this series.

    1970-01-01
    Excellent new entry in this fine series featuring game warden (now promoted to warden investigator) Mike Bowditch.Author Doiron has added some great twists to this one. This is also different than the previous entries in that it is essentially a traditional "locked room" murder mystery. The "room" is a sparsely-populated island off the coast of Maine. All the residents are, by definition, suspects. Due to circumstances, Bowditch finds himself the...

    This is the ninth book in Doiron’s crime series featuring Maine former game warden and now newly promoted warden investigator Mike Bowditch. (In Maine, game wardens are full law-enforcement officers, with all the powers of state troopers: “They are the ‘off-road police.’” Warden investigators are “for all intents and purposes a plainclothes detective.”) Mike has been a game warden for six years but a warden investigator for only fou...

    ARC/ Mystery: This book just came out so no spoilers here. This is book ninth book in the Mike Bowditch series and I got this from Amazon in lieu of an honest review. I originally turned it down, but I saw a positive review of it in the newspaper and thought I really needed to read a good who-done-it. First, let me say that I am bias to first person narrated novels where the protagonist(s) are isolated from the rest of the world; either in space...

    Thank you St. Martins Press/Minotaur Books for my advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.  This title is set to hit shelves July 3.This was my first book by author, Paul Doiron, and my first true crime detective story.  It was a very slow burn  for me - but I guess that is how real-life crime investigations go.  I found the author took a little long on unveiling things and spent a lot of time on descriptions of the island and overall ...

    ok - there was so much I didn't like about this book...where to begin?Mike is an experienced game warden but has recently been promoted to investigator..and throughout the book he acted like he didn't know what he was doing; like he was someone completely new and out of the academy with no background. He is someone who has moved up the ladder - he has experience and training -instead we are subject to his self-doubt; to others wondering if he can...

    #9 in the Mike Bowditch series. This 2018 entry by author Doiron brings with it a strong sense of place as Warden Bowditch, now Warden Investigator, used to the Maine wilderness must investigate the insular community on tiny Maquoit Island. He must investigate a homicide from a hunting incident and none of the natives want him on the island or will assist in his investigation. A fascinating read though the complex plot may not come to the desired...

    A good story about a new game warden called to investigate an "accidental" hunting accident on a tiny island of the coast of Maine. The people of the island were very protective of each other (aside from a rivarly with a certain family).... Even to the point of covering up crimes and secrets. I felt bad for Mike and that the uslanders hated him at the end. I'll probably try more books by this author.

    I love this series and every year I wait eagerly for the next one. It's about Mike Bowditch, formerly a game warden in rural Maine, now recently promoted to Warden Investigator. He travels to Maquoit, a small island off the coast of Maine, to investigate a hunting incident in which a young woman has been shot and killed. However when he arrives he finds that the shooter has not come forward and there is a possibility that the shooting was not eve...

    Once the confusion about one of the main character's death and subsequent r"resurrection" are resolved the story line is pretty straightforward but the descriptions of the island off the Maine coast as well as the permanent residents of the island provides some interest.

    Short Take: Wait, who was that guy?*Note - I received a free advance copy of this book to review.*Living on an island seems like it should have a lot of perks. I mean, you have 360 degrees of beach, right? Unfortunately, according to Stay Hidden, that’s about the only thing going for island living (at least islands off the coast of Maine), because it sure does seem to be pretty miserable for everyone.Newly minted Warden Investigator Mike Bowdit...

    Shades of the 40’s movie-noir LAURA, Stay Hidden is a modern day who-dunnit from author Paul Doiron.Set on the isolated Maine island of Maquoit, where the residents are distrustful, set in their ways, and every single one is a suspect, STAY HIDDEN features Game Warden Investigator Mike Bowditch as the primary investigator of what every resident on the island says is a standard hunting accident, but proves to be something much more.Called to Maq...

    Thanks to Minotaur Books for the free advanced copy in exchange for my honest review. A small island off of Maine, a hunting incident, and plenty of secrets to go around. STAY HIDDEN by Paul Doiron definitely had me intrigued from the start. Doiron did an incredible job setting the scene of this small and isolated island – everything from the scenery, to the state of the animals, to the crime scene and overall feel of being trespassers.We follo...
