Doiron in St. George

The Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor will present Paul Doiron reading from his new book "Trespasser" Wednesday, Aug. 17 at 6 p.m. at the Ocean View Grange, Route 131. The free evening will begin with a reception starting at 5:30 p.m. The author’s books will be on sale and he will be available for signing before and after his reading.

A Maine native, Doiron is editor-in-chief of Down East magazine, books and online as well as an award-winning journalist and the author of two novels. His first book, "The Poacher’s Son," was an instant success. It was short-listed for the 2010 Edgar Award and won many other awards including the Strand Critics Award for Best First Novel and the Maine Literary Award for the Best Novel of 2010.

Second books too often fail to live up to readers' expectations, but that is not the case with "Trespasser," a powerful, riveting followup to "The Poacher’s Son. In this high-octane thriller, Maine Game Warden Mike Bowditch is back on the job, investigating an accident scene in which a car hits a deer. Both driver and deer have disappeared before Bowditch arrives on the scene and his quest to find the missing driver leads him through a forest of lies in search of a killer who may have gotten away with murder once before.

Doiron is a Registered Maine Guide and he brings that experience of wild Maine places to his novels. "Trespasser" takes place in early spring, better known Mud Season in Maine, and it is a season the author obviously knows well. The book has received starred reviews from Booklist and Publisher’s Weekly, among others, and has been on the New England Booksellers Association short list for two months.
