Massacre Pond by Paul Doiron

I am not sure the title fits the book but the book is good.  When conservation officer, Bowditch is called by his friend to investigate the death of five moose on the Morse estate Bowditch is determined to find out.  When he calls in help his boss takes over.  His boss has political stars in his eyes.  When this guy bumbles the investigation Bowditch risks his job, best friend and being with his dying mother to find the person who is now killing people as well as animals.  Can he find out before his life is ruined?

  1. Thank you for the thoughtful review. I thought you might be interested to know that even some of my editors had questions about the title. What I said to them was that MASSACRE POND is literally centered around chapters 21 and 22 of the book, and without them the novel has no meaning. Of course, there is the literal moose "massacre," but the emotional connections run deeper. Thanks again for the mention.
