"A thrilling new book in the Mike Bowditch series!"

Mystery Police Procedural | Thriller

Mike Bowditch cuts his vacation short when the wife of Billy Cronk calls and tells him Billy needs to see him. Billy has a favor to ask Mike, a favor that Mike just can't do for him. However, shortly after this a female guard attacked and Billy saves her life and now the governor wants to pardon Billy. Mike is thrilled to learn this since he feels responsible for sending Billy to prison in the first place because he had to testify against him. However, he is also worried since he can't stop thinking about how anxious Billy had been in prison and the favor he had asked Mike. Could it be that someone is out to get Billy?

ALMOST MIDNIGHT is the tenth book in the Mike Bowditch series. I got to this series a bit late, but with this book have I read a couple of books in the series now and I've become quite the fan. The story in this book is really great. I enjoyed reading about Mike trying to find out what's really going on at the prison and why the female guard was attacked, as well as the side story with Shadow, the wolf that was shot and is in critical condition and Mike feels he has a special bond with. All books can be read as stand-alone and what appeals to me with this series is the fact that Mike Bowditch is a Warden Investigator and not a cop... Although he has a tendency to be drawn to danger and crime. If you like the Longmire series by Craig Johnson, then you should definitely check out the Mike Bowditch series!


Learn more about Almost Midnight


In this thrilling entry in Edgar Award finalist Paul Doiron's bestselling series, a deadly attack on one of Maine's last wild wolves leads Game Warden Mike Bowditch to an even bigger criminal conspiracy. While on vacation, Warden Investigator Mike Bowditch receives a strange summons from Billy Cronk, one of his oldest friends and a man he had to reluctantly put behind bars for murder. Billy wants him to investigate a new female prison guard with a mysterious past, and Mike feels honor-bound to help his friend. But when the guard becomes the victim in a brutal attack at the prison, he realizes there may be a darker cover-up at play—and that Billy and his family might be at risk. Then Mike receives a second call for help, this time from a distant mountain valley where Shadow, a wolf-hybrid he once cared for, has been found shot by an arrow and clinging to life. He searches for the identity of the bowman, but his investigation is blocked at every turn by the increasingly hostile community. And when Billy’s wife and children are threatened, Mike finds himself tested like never before. How can he possibly keep the family safe when he has enemies of his own on his trail? Torn between loyalties, Mike Bowditch must respond in the only way he knows how: by bending every law and breaking every rule to keep his loved ones safe and the true predators at bay.
