Thought this book was good, but much more graphic than the others that I've read in the series. A little too much violence/ blood-and-gore for my tastes.
I love Barr's Anna Pigeon mysteries and this one was no exception. However, this was much darker than her previous books and the 'ick factor' was present throughout much of the story. I am anxious to see what happens next with Anna and where she'll end up next time around.
As always set against the background of a National Park, I would have given this book another star had there been just a little less to it. The main plot is quite good and the welcome introduction of a disabled camper and her aunt made me wonder if perhaps there was another series in Barr's future. There are two subplots, however, and both seem artificially tied into the main book - sometimes with confusing results. Well worth the read, but if you are new to the series, go back and start with the older books.
