Stay Hidden – Paul Doiron

Stay Hidden – Paul Doiron


I was fortunate to receive this novel as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Mike Bowditch is a member of the Maine Warden Service and has been recently promoted to investigator in the Bangor office. While the majority of the team is out investigating a hunting accident, Mike fields a call for yet another hunting mishap – a young woman has reportedly been shot dead on a remote Maine island, and the hunter is in custody. When Mike arrives to investigate the shooting, he learns that the alleged shooter denies the incident, but admits to finding her on the ground, leaving the investigation wide open for Mike. Was it really a hunting accident? Or something much more sinister?

Anyone who’s ever spent time in rural Maine knows how secretive and protective of another that Mainers can be. As Mike attempts to get to the bottom of the incident, he finds himself thwarted at every turn – even by the island’s constable himself. Then, out of the blue, the victim’s sister arrives, stunning the islanders with her resemblance to her sister – and she starts looking for her own answers…

I very much enjoyed this book, the characters, and the multi-dimensional aspect of their lives. Mike Bowditch is a strong, solid character and I look forward to seeing him in future novels spent quite a few years living in central Maine, so reading of places I was familiar with made this book extra special for me. A fabulous read, and a must for mystery/crime/thriller fans!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
