BAD LITTLE FALLS, the third installment in Paul Doiron’s acclaimed Mike Bowditch series, hits stores today! Praise, tour dates, and a link to an exclusive excerpt from the book after the jump!

In a starred, boxed review, Publishers Weekly praises this “excellent” novel with “some truly wicked twists,” saying “Dorion matches strong characters with effective prose and subtle characterizations.”

The Associated Press says:

The plot is riveting, but as always in a Paul Doiron novel, the greatest attraction is the stark beauty of the language and the vivid portrayal of his native Maine. He describes drug-riddled, poverty-stricken Down East — a region of fast-moving streams, frozen lakes, ice-fishing shacks and forbidding bogs — so precisely that you’ll feel the below-freezing temperatures in your bones.

Kirkus Reviews calls the book “a high-stakes, high-tension yarn in which you keep wishing everything would turn out fine for the deeply flawed, deeply sympathetic hero even though you know it won’t.”

RT Book Reviews selects it as one of their Top Picks, saying: 

Doiron once again makes excellent use of Maine’s unforgiving weather to set the stage for a compelling mystery, while underscoring his complicated hero’s troubled character. Elegant prose perfectly captures the feel of the location, and the diverse, realistic cast of characters enriches the narrative. Readers will shiver — both from the cold and in anticipation of the rather shocking conclusion.

 The Maine Sporstman says, “I liked his first novel, The Poacher’s Son. I really liked his second novel, Trespasser. And I loved his third about-to-be-published by Minotaur Bad Little Falls.” It predicts, “After reading Chapter One of Bad Little Falls, readers will not be able to set this one aside.” 
We think you’ll agree, which is why we’re excited to share this link to the Maine Crime Writers website where you can get an exclusive sneak peek at the first two chapters!
