General Note:
Sequel to: One last lie.
Summary, etc.:
"Mike Bowditch is fighting for his life. After being ambushed on a dark winter road, his Jeep crashes into a frozen river. Trapped beneath the ice in the middle of nowhere, having lost his gun and any way to signal for help, Mike fights his way to the surface. But surviving the crash is only the first challenge. Whoever set the trap that ran him off the road is still out there, and they're coming for him. Hours earlier, Mike was called to investigate the suspicious drowning of a wealthy professor. Despite the death being ruled an accident, his elegant, eccentric daughter-in-law insists the man was murdered. She suspects his companion that day, a reclusive survivalist and conspiracy theorist who accompanied the professor on his fateful duck-hunting trip--but what exactly was the nature of their relationship? And was her own sharp-tongued daughter, who inherited the dead man's fortune, as close to her grandfather as she claims? The accusations lead Mike to a sinister local family who claim to have information on the crime. But when his Jeep flies into the river and unknown armed assailants on snowmobiles chase him through the wilderness, the investigation turns into a fight for survival. As Mike faces a nightlong battle to stay alive, he must dissect the hours leading up to the ambush and solve two riddles: which one of these people desperately want him dead, and what has he done to incur their wrath?"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Once again, Doiron provides brilliant characterizations and a compelling narrative as Maine game warden Mike Bowditch struggles to stay alive and solve a mystery in his twelfth outing (after One Last Lie, 2020). Doiron sets his books in different months so he can capture the majesty of the Maine landscape all year round. This time it is December solstice, the shortest day of the year. For Bowditch, though, it feels like the longest day of his life when his jeep is hurtled into a freezing river after hitting some metal spikes in the road. He manages to free his wolf dog, Shadow, and fights his own way to the surface, but his gun and all means of communication are lost, and he is worried that whoever set the trap for him will come back to finish him off. Bowditch's survival skills are top-notch, and he wins an all-night battle to survive, only to have "them" come hunting for him in the morning. He realizes that he must have asked someone the wrong question, and chapters about his ordeal alternate cleverly with backstory relating to each of the house calls he made while investigating the suspicious drowning of a wealthy professor. This series just keeps getting better, although Bowditch is going to need some serious body-part replacements if he keeps going at this rate. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
