Let's Go for a Ride: The Wild Life of Maine's Longest-Tenured Undercover Game Warden (Hardcover)
Heralded as "one of the best covert investigators in the country," William (Bill) Livezey is the longest-tenured undercover operative of the Maine Warden Service. "Let's go for a ride" is the universal bad-guy code for breaking the law. Among Maine's wilderness offenders, its utterance often incites alcohol-fueled night hunting, high-speed car chases, drug dealing, arson, and attempted murder. The worst of the worst were Bill Livezey's bread and butter.
