Bad Little Falls by Paul Doiron

When a blizzard descends on the coast, Bowditch is called to the rustic cabin of a terrified couple. A raving and half-frozen man has appeared at their door, claiming his friend is lost in the storm. 

But what starts as a rescue mission in the wilderness soon becomes a baffling murder investigation. The dead man is a notorious drug dealer, and state police detectives suspect it was his own friend who killed him. Bowditch isn’t so sure, but his vow not to interfere in the case is tested when he finds himself powerfully attracted to a beautiful woman with a dark past and a troubled young son. The boy seems to know something about what really happened in the blizzard, but he is keeping his secrets locked in a cryptic notebook, and Mike fears for the safety of the strange child. 

This is the third book in the Mike Bowditch series. In this book he's been sent out to the far reaches in the coast of Maine for all his insubordination in the previous 2 books.

The investigation in this book centers around a frozen drug dealer and his frost-bitten partner.  The question is whether or not they were murdered and why?  Mike finds himself once again being the only person interested in the investigation and everyone else warning him to just back off.  His stubborn nature and his new love interest in this book just won't let him.  I liked the setting of this book better, but I didn't like the personal aspects of Mike's life in this book.  I felt like he was going to get himself in trouble in this book.

I like this series for some light sort of audiobook listening.  I've been in school and these books are great for some distraction to and from school in the car.  I like the characters, the stories don't get too convoluted and it's just a good, easy mystery book for listening in the car.
