STAY HIDDEN garners a starred review from Publishers Weekly

I'm delighted to announce that Publishers Weekly has given STAY HIDDEN its second starred review. It's such an honor and a privilege to receive such a positive review. To get a star is everything an author hopes for as he anxiously awaits his new book's release. 

What they said: "Doiron balances nuanced characterizations and intelligent plotting perfectly."

Welcome to Maine's Murder Island

STAY HIDDEN (on sale July 3) is set on Maquoit Island, which is roughly 20 miles off the Maine coast. As I note in the story, Maquoit is one of the state's most remote communities and the foggiest place on the Eastern Seaboard. I'm grateful to mapmaker extraordinaire Jane Crosen and designer Barbara Tedesco for furnishing me with this beautiful map to use in the book.


Booklist calls STAY HIDDEN "Doiron's Strongest Novel Yet"

I am thrilled to report that "Booklist," one of the important prepublication journals in the book industry, has given STAY HIDDEN a starred review, signifying it is a work deserving of special attention.

Doiron brings all his considerable talent and his extensive knowledge as an outdoor guide in Maine to bear in this ninth Mike Bowditch novel.... The plot is complex, and the action intense, made all the more so by forbidding terrain. The characters are well developed and clearly defined despite the dense fog that surrounds them, literally and figuratively. The extraordinary sense of place makes this Doiron’s strongest novel yet. This is not Jessica Fletcher’s Maine.

Read the entire review for yourself.
