4 posts | 2 read
A call for help from a former colleague leads Maine game warden investigator Mike Bowditch and his girlfriend Stacey Stevens on a sea kayaking trip to a research station far off the coast. Stacey spent summers interning on the island, a sanctuary for endangered seabirds, and they are shocked by what they hear when they come ashore. The biologists are being threatened by local fishermen and stalked by a mysterious boatman who seems intent on trespassing on the refuge. Even worse, their leader, whose mind is slowly unraveling after the unexplained suicide of a young intern, has now gone missing.

Mehso-so

Just to clarify, this is 13th but my first book in this mystery series about Mike Bowditch, a game warden in Maine. I was able to catch on fairly quickly however. Mike and gf Stacey investigate a double homicide on a seabird sanctuary research facility off the coast. Could it be a local lobsterman, someone from nearby Ayers Island, the wealthy couple who donated heavily to the station? There‘s obviously violence but also a sexual abuse 🔻

robinb plot line that was especially disturbing. The writing was fine. The story dragged in spots. I never really felt engaged with the characters (the Mike/Stacey relationship needed more of a realistic feel), and the denouement felt rushed and not fully tied up to me. The physical nature descriptions were wonderful, but in the end, this one just wasn‘t for me. 3/5 4w
