In the aftermath of a family tragedy, Mike Bowditch has left the Maine Warden Service and is working as a fishing guide in the North Woods. But when his mentor Sgt. Kathy Frost is forced to kill a troubled war veteran in an apparent case of 'suicide by cop,' he begins having second thoughts about his decision. Now Kathy finds herself the target of a government inquiry and outrage from the dead soldier's platoon mates. Soon she finds herself in the sights of a sniper, as well. When the sergeant is shot outside her farmhouse, Mike joins the hunt to find the mysterious man responsible. To do so, the ex-warden must plunge into his friend's secret past - even as a beautiful woman from Mike's own past returns, throwing into jeopardy his tentative romance with wildlife biologist Stacey Stevens. As Kathy Frost lies on the brink of death and a dangerous shooter stalks the blueberry barrens of central Maine, Bowditch is forced to confront the choices he has made and determine, once and for all, the kind of man he truly is, in The Bone Orchard by Paul Doiron. Praise for The Poacher's Son: An excellent debut - filled with murder, betrayal and a terrific sense of place. C.J. Box. A stunning debut...At its heart this is a tale of bitter betrayal, lost hopes and broken dreams. The book has a tautness that is impossible to forget and which left me close to tears. It is also the first in a series. Its successor, Trespasser, also featuring Bowditch, is on the way. Grab him now. Daily Mail. Stunning vistas...eye popping scenes - The New York Times Book Review. This is a compelling, moving and utterly impressive debut - Andre Dubus III, author of House of Sand and Fog. The Poacher's Son is one of the best written debut novels I have read in years. This novel has it all - a great plot, a wonderful Maine woods setting and a truly remarkable and believable cast of characters. - Nelson de Mille.

After leaving a trail of terror and death in his wake, the notorious "Missouri" Boone Jennings finally meets his match in San Francisco when US marshal Ambrose Shaw catches up to him. The story of his capture, and the marshal's bravery, has already become legend back east by the time Pinkerton inspector Ezra Johns gets off the train from New York City to testify in the murderer's trial. When Ambrose is unable to give witness to the evils he's seen, Ezra becomes their lone hope for putting Jennings in a noose. But if Ezra thinks that's his biggest problem, he's got plenty to learn about life — and the afterlife — in the spirited West. Fortunately, Ambrose is there to assist, and more than happy to oblige Ezra — in the courtroom or the bedroom. He spent his life bringing justice to the Wild West, and if he has a say in it, that's how he'll be spending his death too.
