The Poacher's Son

Paul Doiron, read by John Bedford Lloyd, Macmillan Audio, unabridged, seven CDs, 8.5 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4272-0896-5
Doiron's strong debut features Mike Bowditch, a newbie game warden, who hears that his estranged father, a hard-living poacher, has been accused of murdering two men and has escaped into a wilderness area. Ignoring the orders of both his superior and the police, Bowditch sets out to find his father and prove his innocence. The author makes the warden's journey so rich in boyhood memories, vivid characters, striking scenic wonders that it's a pity John Bedford Lloyd delivers such a staid performance. Stiff and straightforward, he only seems to catch the mood when giving voice to the man on the run, gruff Jack Bowditch, and other growling denizens of the Maine woods. A Minotaur hardcover (Reviews, Jan. 11). (May)
