Massacre Pond

Massacre Pond

On an unseasonably hot October morning, Mike Bowditch is called to the scene of a bizarre crime: the corpses of seven moose have been found butchered on the estate of Elizabeth Moore, a wealthy animal rights activist who is buying up huge parcels of forest to create a new national park.

What at first seems like mindless slaughter becomes far more sinister when a shocking murder is discovered and Mike’s investigation becomes a hunt to find an elusive killer. In order to solve the controversial case he risks losing everything he holds dear: his best friend, his career – and the love of his life.

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
