Just a warning, since I know this author is very popular: I was checking to see when her next book is due, and I saw she had a new one already out---which surprised me, it's not that long since the last one.

Only by reading reviews did I find this is actually an old book, with a new title and cover, re-issued.....I've read the explanations of how publishing companies (they do this, not the author) can legally do this, and I still don't understand it---and it makes me angry when I get fooled by it.

What is the title and release date?  Which book is being reprinted?  The rest of us don't want to be fooled either.  Thanks!

Drn I tried to find it without success.  But, before I order one I'll doubl e check it.  I've been caught like that with other authors.  crying

Barr's most recent book is "The Rope" from January, 2012. It's a new story, but it takes place before any of the other Anna Pigeon books. Her next book is "Destroyer Angel", coming out in April, 2014. Anything in between these two is a reprint.
