In the aftermath of a family tragedy, Mike Bowditch has left the Maine Warden Service and is working as a fishing guide in the North Woods. But when his mentor Sergeant Kathy Frost is forced to kill a troubled war veteran in an apparent case of “suicide by cop,” he begins having second thoughts about his decision.

Now Kathy finds herself the target of a government inquiry and outrage from the dead soldier’s platoon mates. Soon she finds herself in the sights of a sniper, as well. When the sergeant is shot outside her farmhouse, Mike joins the hunt to find the mysterious man responsible. To do so, the ex-warden must plunge into his friend’s secret past—even as a beautiful woman from Mike’s own past returns, throwing into jeopardy his tentative romance with wildlife biologist Stacey Stevens.

As Kathy Frost lies on the brink of death and a dangerous shooter stalks the blueberry barrens of central Maine, Bowditch is forced to confront the choices he has made and determine, once and for all, the kind of man he truly is.

Quotes & Awards

  • "The Bone Orchard [is] both a rich exploration of character and a satisfying mystery.”

    Associated Press

  • “Excellent…Thoughtful plotting and strong characters raise this above the crime novel pack.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Continues to deliver vivid local characters and wild Maine landscapes, as well as a satisfying mystery to solve. Recommended for readers who appreciate maverick backwoods investigators like Steve Hamilton’s Alex McKnight.”

    Library Journal

  • “In Mike Bowditch’s fifth outing, Henry Leyva’s narration offers a more thoughtful hero than listeners have heard before…While Leyva’s Down East accents are a little heavy-handed with certain over-the-top characters, he’s generally credible, particularly with place names. Leyva deftly handles Bowditch’s unpredictable moods, slipping easily from intense grief to being controlled and capable of logical deductions.”


  • Massacre Pond is a tough act to follow, but Doiron avoids series stagnancy by placing Bowditch outside of the law-enforcement circle he once loved and treating readers to another round of top-notch outdoors-Maine description. Highly recommended for fans of C. J. Box and Craig Johnson.”
