estranged son thrust into the hunt for a murderous
-his own father.
Game warden Mike Bowditch returns home one evening to
an alarming voice from the past on his answering machine:
his father, Jack, a hard-drinking womanizer who makes his
living poaching illegal game. An even more frightening
comes the next morning from the police: They are
for the man who killed a beloved local cop the night
-and his father is their prime suspect. Jack has escaped
from police custody, and only Mike believes that his
tormented father might not be guilty.
Now, alienated from the woman he loves, shunned by
colleagues who have no sympathy for the suspected cop
killer, Mike must come to terms with his haunted past. He
knows firsthand Jackâ€™s brutality, but is the man capable
murder? Desperate and alone, Mike strikes up an uneasy
alliance with a retired warden pilot, and together the
men journey deep into the Maine wilderness in search of a
runaway fugitive. There they meet a beautiful woman who
claims to be Jackâ€™s mistress but who seems to be guarding
more dangerous secret. The only way for Mike to save his
father now is to find the real killerâ€”-which could mean
putting everyone he loves in the line of fire.
The Poacherâ€™s Son is a sterling debut of literary
Taut and engrossing, it represents the first in a series
featuring Mike Bowditch.
