Stargazing In Maine

St. Martin's will publish THE POACHER'S SON in the spring, and we're pleased to tell you that Paul Doiron's debut novel has already gotten its first starred review!

A richly imagined portrait of the vanishing wilderness in New England's farthest reaches, Doiron's well-written debut is also a taut thriller and thoughtful examination of the complicated relationship between father and son. Of a piece with Castle Freeman Jr.'s All That I Have about a Vermont sheriff, this will also appeal to fans of CJ Box's Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett.

As Dark As A Lump Of Coal But A Much Better Stocking Stuffer

We think BOSTON NOIR, the anthology edited by Dennis Lehane, would make the perfect gift for any book-loving loved ones, and it seems that the fine people of Boston agree. The book has been hanging out on the Boston Globe bestseller list for the past few weeks and is currently in the #3 spot.

C.J. Box's UK Invasion

Box-mania is in full swing across the pond as THREE WEEKS TO SAY GOODBYE makes it UK debut!

Here's a sampling of the rave reviews:

Here is a book that comes festooned with expectations and praise from abroad, with hopeful comparisons made to such American giants as Harlan Coben. Are the comparisons justified? The answer is resoundingly in the affirmative -- this novel is absolutely terrific. -- The Good Book Guide

I don't have a lot of crime fiction or thrillers on my shelf -- it's not a genre I've particularly hankered after -- but CJ Box could have well converted me. I hope he takes off over here as he has done in the States. He deserves to. --

A thriller with a difference with no murder to solve and no fugitives' from justice. One which will break your heart but leave you compelled to keep turning till the last page. -- The Liffeyside Blog

C.J. Box writes like an Edgar winner. Tight pages turn and turn," adding "Character development remained strong, pace fast and the writing always switchblade-sharp" and "the novel was narrated convincingly and with terrifying plausibility. -- Critical Mick

C.J. Box isn't just sitting back and basking in the glow of all of this adulation! He's written an article for The Guardian about his top ten US crime novelists and one for Crime Time on the rising popularity of the high-concept thriller in the UK.
