The Toronto Star has published an absoluting glowing review of Massacre Pond, which came as an early Christmas present. I even got top billing over Michael Connelly:
The new book is Doiron’s fourth in his meticulously observed and gracefully written Bowditch series. Massacre Pond’s difference from the earlier books is a matter of degree. It packs more power in describing the tensions between Maine’s environmentalists and its ordinary residents who pillage the landscape in order to feed their families.
Doiron is so persuasive in explaining the mindsets of Maine’s rugged individualists of all inclinations that even city slickers among his readers can’t help feeling dragged into a conflict that could save or doom the state’s natural character.
Thank you for the kind words, Jack Batten.
