Maine Warden investigator Mike Bowditch is at home with his new wife, Stacey, in the middle of a very rainy time, the roads are blocked, trees are down and rivers are swelling, when he gets a call about a missing man named Hammond Pratt. The man has been asking around about a builder named Mark Redmond, and his 12-year-old daughter Cady. Seems Redmond is in upper Maine building a log cabin for Josie, who is Stacey’s godmother. Josie, Mike and Charley (his father-in-law) pay Mark and Cady a visit and soon find themselves in some serious danger. This man is dangerous and flees into the North Woods of Maine, to the Canadian border. Mike takes off after them, with no weapons, and becomes a hunting game between them in his attempts to stop them and save the young girl. Not everything is as it seems though, he learns shocking information, the bodies pile up, and he finds himself in custody in Canada. All in a day’s work for Mike. His personal life is about to change as well. This is a thrill ride of a novel. The tension and the one-man chase by Bowdith are ramped up, and this is one of those books you just do not want to put down. This continues the streak of outstanding novels in this series. Long-time fans will love this one.
