BAR HARBOR – Top-notch Mystery writer Paul Doiron will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, Sept. 10 beginning at 7 p.m. with his new novel, “Massacre Pond,” the fourth book in his series about Maine game warden Mike Bowditch.
“Having Paul Doiron at the Jesup is a treat – for us and for everyone who comes to meet him,” said library director Ruth Eveland.
Sherman’s book store, the co-sponsor of this event, will be on hand with copies for sale, and part of the proceeds of all books purchased that night will be donated to the Jesup.
Mr. Doiron, the editor of Down East magazine, will read from “Massacre Pond,” talk about the series and his writing process, and leave plenty of time for questions from the audience. His books have been bestsellers, and he has won the Barry Award, the Strand Critics Award, and the Maine Literary Award for Crime Fiction. Mr. Doiron, is editor in chief of Down East magazine and a Registered Maine Guide.
In “Masscre Pond,” game warden Mike Bowditch teams with a beautiful woman whose mission to save the Maine wilderness may have incited a murder. On an unseasonably hot October morning, Mr. Bowditch is called to the scene of a bizarre crime: the corpses of seven moose have been found on the estate of Elizabeth Morse, a wealthy animal rights activist who is buying up huge parcels of timberland to create a new national park. What at first seems like mindless slaughter— retribution by locals for the job losses Morse’s plan is already causing in the region — becomes far more sinister when a shocking murder is discovered and Mike’s investigation becomes a hunt to find a ruthless killer.
Don’t miss this great evening at the Jesup.
