The other comments have summed the Mike Bowditch books up really well. It was another good read & I'm looking forward to the next story in this series....long may it last.

Ah, Maine, "America's Tailpipe". The Saco, river of choice for flotillas of inebriated, puking college louts. Smoggy, perspiration pumping, ninety-degree-plus days abuzz with deer flies (the piranhas of the air), and four foot water snakes making a home in one's canoe. Let's welcome the newest interlopers, wild boar, engines of destruction whether targeting flora or fauna alike. Then there's parasitic infestation of the human kind: rural slumlords. Doiron's caustic observations in Knife Creek must send the bureaucrats at the state tourist office into an apoplectic fit.

Mike Bowditch #8 - Another good installment in this outdoor mystery series. I always enjoy the Maine wilderness setting of these books along with Mike and his supporting cast. The missing person theme of this book hooked me at the beginning and kept the pages turning. Having just kayaked a long twisty river myself, I found the description of the Saco river interesting. Hard to believe Mike's been around for 8 books already. Looking forward to the next book to see how he handles his new responsibilities.

This is the eighth book in the in the author's Mike Bowditch series, and it may be his best. I've liked them all.

I love this series by this author. It starts with warden finding the remains of a baby in the woods. He had the task of thinning out the feral pigs. The author is so good at his mysteries. If you like Craig johnson or C.J.Box this is an author you will love. Can't wait for the next one.
