Edgar-nominated Mystery Author at DPL June 27!

Mystery novelist and editor-in-chief of Down East magazine, Paul Doiron, will visit the Dover Public Library on Monday, June 27 at 7pm for a book signing and a reading from his second “Mike Bowditch” novel, Trespasser, which will be published June 21 by Minotaur Books.
Trespasser is the riveting follow-up to Doiron’s Edgar Award–nominated first novel, The Poacher's Son. Maine Game Warden Bowditch is back on the job, and once again he's tripping over bodies. He’s called to an accident scene in which a car hit a deer, but when he arrives neither the deer nor the driver are there. Though instructed to leave the matter to the state police, the situation continues to haunt Bowditch. Where would a young woman go on a cold, snowy Maine night? Devastated when the truth is revealed, Bowditch risks all to finally bring a killer to justice.
Paul Doiron leapt from the editorship of Down East magazine to the big leagues of crime writing with his soulful debut novel, The Poacher’s Son, which was nominated for an Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Strand Critics Award, International Thriller Writers Award, a Barry Award, and Kirkus’ Best Mysteries of 2010 list.

Now in Trespasser, Mike must reopen old wounds in order to catch a killer with friends in high places. Reviewers of Doiron’s second novel have called it “altogether impressive”, “perfectly plotted” and “incredibly evocative” of the Maine landscape.
Paul Doiron is a Maine native. He attended Yale University, where he graduated with a
degree in English, and he holds an MFA in creative writing from Emerson College. Paul is a
Registered Maine Guide specializing in fly fishing and outdoor recreation and lives on a trout
stream in coastal Maine.
This is a free author event at the Dover Public Library and everyone is welcome to attend.
