In this thrilling entry in Edgar Award finalist Paul Doiron's bestselling series, a deadly attack on one of Maine's last wild wolves leads Game Warden Mike Bowditch to an even bigger criminal conspiracy.

While on vacation, Warden Investigator Mike Bowditch receives a strange summons from Billy Cronk, one of his oldest friends and a man he had to reluctantly put behind bars for murder. Billy wants him to investigate a new female prison guard with a mysterious past, and Mike feels honor-bound to help his friend. But when the guard becomes the victim in a brutal attack at the prison, he realizes there may be a darker cover-up at play--and that Billy and his family might be at risk.

Then Mike receives a second call for help, this time from a distant mountain valley where Shadow, a wolf-hybrid he once cared for, has been found shot by an arrow and clinging to life. He searches for the identity of the bowman, but his investigation is blocked at every turn by the increasingly hostile community. And when Billy's wife and children are threatened, Mike finds himself tested like never before. How can he possibly keep the family safe when he has enemies of his own on his trail?

Torn between loyalties, Mike Bowditch must respond in the only way he knows how: by bending every law and breaking every rule to keep his loved ones safe and the true predators at bay.

Booklist Review: "Billy Cronk's going a little stir-crazy in prison, so when he tells Maine game warden Mike Bowditch that it's urgent Mike dig into the past of a new female prison guard, Mike takes it with a grain of salt. But, since it was Mike's testimony that landed his friend in prison for manslaughter, he decides to give it a try. Then Billy saves the guard from being knifed to death in a prison attack, and Mike knows his friend is onto something. Meanwhile, the wolf dog that Mike rescued from drug dealers years ago has been shot with a distinctive arrow, and Mike wants justice for the noble creature. Mike's vast network of Maine law-enforcement colleagues, including his new girlfriend, state trooper Dani Tate, help him on both fronts. Fans of outdoors procedurals, like those by William Kent Krueger or C. J. Box, will be delighted to make get to know the consistently strong Mike Bowditch series, now in its tenth installment.--Karen Keefe Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "At the start of Edgar-finalist Doiron's solid 10th mystery featuring game warden Mike Bowditch (after 2018's Stay Hidden), Mike visits the Maine State Prison at the behest of his best friend, Billy Cronk, who's incarcerated there for killing a man who ambushed him and Mike four years earlier. Billy is prone to paranoia, so when he asks Mike to secretly (and illegally) investigate corrections officer Dawn Richie without providing a reason, Mike refuses. Soon afterward, Billy is hospitalized after an attack on Richie that he helped thwart. Mike fears Billy is caught up in something criminal and intends to dig further, but then he learns that someone has shot Shadow, a wolf-dog that Mike rescued before it escaped and paired off with Maine's last wild wolf. Despite a tendency to reduce secondary characters to stereotypes, Doiron writes with eloquence, authority, and passion about Maine's wilderness and its creatures. The twin story lines intrigue, and though the delay in integrating them gives the plot a disjointed feel, the conclusion is an emotionally satisfying, adrenaline-fueled sprint. Fans of C.J. Box will find much to admire. Author tour. Agent: Ann Rittenberg, Ann Rittenberg Literary. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
