Mystery novel stars Maine game warden



BAR HARBOR — Author Paul Doiron will give an author talk and sign copies of his new book, “Stay Hidden,” on Friday, July 13, at 7 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library. “Stay Hidden” is the ninth book in author Doiron’s series featuring Warden Investigator Mike Bowditch.

When a woman is killed in a hunting accident on the remote Maquoit Island off the coast of Maine, the newly promoted Bowditch thinks the case should be open and shut. But in “Stay Hidden” this simple case becomes a dangerously complicated murder investigation.

By the time Bowditch reaches the island, the hunter claims he didn’t fire the fatal shot, and Bowditch begins to suspect the secretive community might be covering up the identity of whoever killed Ariel Evans, a controversial author who was supposedly writing a book about the island’s notorious hermit. But then the weekly ferry arrives and off steps the dead woman herself. Ariel Evans is very much alive, and determined to solve her own “murder.”

Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor Sherman’s Books and the talk is co-sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.
