When two female hikers disappear in the Hundred Mile Wilderness―the most remote stretch along the entire Appalachian Trail―Maine game warden Mike Bowditch cuts short his romantic getaway with wildlife-biologist Stacey Stevens and joins the desperate search to find them.


Hope turns to despair after two unidentified corpses are discovered, their bones picked clean by coyotes. Soon, all of Maine is gripped by a fear of coyote attacks. But Bowditch has his doubts about whether the bodies belong to the missing hikers. And Stacey insists the scavengers are being wrongly blamed―and believes that a murderer may be hiding in the offbeat community of hikers, hippies, and woodsmen at the edge of the trail. When Stacey herself mysteriously goes missing, Mike’s hunt for answers becomes personal. Can he find the woman he loves before the most dangerous creature in the North Woods―man or animal―strikes again?

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

About the Author:

Bestselling author Paul Doiron is the editor in chief of Down East: The Magazine of Maine. A native of Maine, he attended Yale University and holds an MFA from Emerson College. His first book, The Poacher's Son, is the winner of the Barry Award, the Strand Award for best first novel, and a finalist for the Edgar and Anthony awards. Paul is a Registered Maine Guide and lives on a trout stream in coastal Maine with his wife, Kristen Lindquist.

Review:

Bad Little Falls is a jewel of a book. Doiron has gotten it all magnificently right: a hell of a good mystery, beautifully drawn landscape and characters so evocatively written they follow you off the page. Buy this. The guy can write.” ―Nevada Barr, New York Times bestselling author of Rope

“Doiron's third Bowditch entry is riveting and honest, with full-depth characters and a landscape that isn't cutting any slack. Readers of Nevada Barr and C. J. Box will enjoy this similar tale, with the added surprise of a refreshing hero whose youth and inexperience Doiron skillfully twists into an asset.” ―Booklist

“A high-stakes, high-tension yarn in which you keep wishing everything would turn out fine for the deeply flawed, deeply sympathetic hero.” ―Kirkus

“Excellent . . . a murder case with some truly wicked twists. Dorion matches strong characters with effective prose and subtle characterizations. Fans of Steve Hamilton's Alex McKnight series, likewise set in a remote region close to Canada, will find a lot to like.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
