Publisher's Summary

In Paul Doiron's Widowmaker, when a mysterious woman in distress appears outside his home, Mike Bowditch has no clue she is about to blow his world apart.
Amber Langstrom is beautiful, damaged, and hiding a secret with a link to his past. She claims her son, Adam, is a wrongfully convicted sex offender who has vanished from a brutal work camp in the high timber around the Widowmaker Ski Resort. She also claims that Adam Langstrom is the illegitimate son of Jack Bowditch, Mike's dead and diabolical father. He is the half brother Mike never knew he had.
After trying so hard to put his troubled past behind him, Mike is reluctant to revisit the wild country of his childhood and again confront his father's history of violence. But Amber's desperation and his own need to know the truth make it hard for him to refuse her pleas for help.
In search of answers, Bowditch travels through a mountainous wilderness to a place hidden from the rest of the world, where the military guards a top-secret interrogation base, sexual predators live together in a backwoods colony, and self-styled vigilantes are willing to murder anyone they consider their enemies.
Mike Bowditch must exorcise the demons of the past before the real-life demons of the present kill him.

Never attempt a Maine accent!!

Would you try another book from Paul Doiron and/or Henry Leyva?

Paul Doiron has created an authentic portrait of Maine and its natural beauty. The individual characters ring true and I love this series. But the narrator's attempt at a Maine accent is just dreadful. It's cross between Brooklyn and British with a bit of Southern US thrown in. Again and again, the beautiful and unusual Maine accent is butchered on TV and film.

Would you recommend Widowmaker to your friends? Why or why not?

I will tell my friends to read the book and skip the audio book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The Maine accent is terribly distracting. Why attempt it? And he mis-pronounces towns and cities.
