Love her books. This author transports the reader to the location. If you can't go there in person this is the next best thing to being there in person.

From the Publisher
It's fall in the Sierra Mountains, and Anna Pigeon is slinging hash in Yosemite National Park's historic Ahwahnee Hotel. Four young people, all seasonal park employees, have disappeared, and two weeks of work by crack search-and-rescue teams have failed to turn up a single clue; investigators are unsure as to whether the four went AWOL for reasons of their own-or died in the park. Needing an out-of-park ranger to work undercover, Anna is detailed to dining-room duty; but after a week of waiting tables, she knows the missing employees are only the first indications of a sickness threatening the park.

Her twenty-something roommates give up their party-girl ways and panic; her new restaurant colleagues regard her with suspicion and fear. But when Anna's life is threatened and her temporary supervisor turns a deaf ear, she follows the scent of evil, taking a solo hike up a snowy trial to the high country, seeking answers. What waits for her is a nightmare of death and greed-and perhaps her final adventure.

The author Nevada Barr was recently a forest ranger on the Natchez Trail Parkway. By profession the author is a forest ranger who served in many of our national parks.

This a cliffhanger mystery. Four young people in the park disappear without a trace. Anna Pigeon has to thankless job of finding them. Anna's life is in peril but she seeks the perpetraors of this crime. Will she live or die? Read this book and find out.

Have tried to read this author but don't care for the style of writing which is mostly just pages of descriptions, didn't care for the character either.

Nevada Barr is entertaining. Her stories are sometimes a little over the top of believeability. As someone who lives at the entrance to and spends a great deal of time in one of the National Parks that she hasn't written about, I,m waiting for that book to be written. I've read about 10 of her books, which should say sometime about my reaction to her writings.

Another great Nevada Barr murder mystery. Anna Pigeon goes undercover in Yosemite National Park to try to help find/track down four hikers who have gone missing. As Anna works as a waitress in her undercover persona, she is able to pick up enough tidbits here and there to lead her out on a solo hike, which only leads to trouble for her. Using her backwoods skills and determination, she manages to find out what's really going on and stay alive...just barely. There are plenty of twists and turns throughout to keep the reader very interested and continuely guessing...up to the very end. Anna is a strong, independant hero who is in her late 40s, early 50s, and a breath of fresh air to the stale young, always pretty, and usually blond and not-too-bright heros other authers use. I enjoy reading about her adventures, as well as the various national parks she visits. Nevada Barr doesn't goop up her storylines with unnecessary romance, adds just enough action and realism to make the reader believe, and usually surprises the reader up to the very end. Highly recommend.

First let me say that I enjoy anything Barbara Rosenblat narrates. She's the best of the best! Second, the book was a great listen: interesting, fluid plot kept me interested all the way through. A super story.

Anna Pidgeon, national park ranger, finds herself undercover at Yosemite National Park, CA, to investigate the disappeance of 4 young employees. A page turner, Nevada Barr is on my favorite list. Don't miss any of the Anna P. series.

This one turns into a real cliff-hanger, once it gets going!

Excellent writing as always by Nevada Barr, but more consistently violent than the earlier books in this series. Anna goes under cover in Yosemite after four young park employees disappear. I generally don't like descriptive writing, but Barr does a masterful job of giving us the feel for the natural features of the national park with a light hand.
