Doiron will discuss his new series crime novel, DEAD BY DAWN, where Maine game warden Mike Bowditch finds himself in a life-or-death chase where 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?
