I'm usually so-so about Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon books--I'll read one every year or two, just to see how they're going. This one was good, but not as good as some of the others. (Blind Descent is my favorite.)

I felt that this one dragged things out many (many!) pages beyond what was necessary to tell the story. Nevertheless, it was a clever mystery and I did care about the characters and enjoyed the unraveling of the clues and eventual solution to the mystery.

I visited the Canadian Waterton Lakes National Park--the continuation of Glacier National Park across the border in Canada--a year or two ago, and it is a breathtakingly beautiful place. The book didn't really deliver the look and feel of this marvelous place, but it was still fun.

If you like any of the Barr books, you'll like this one.

The thought of facing a huge grizzly bear frighten you? Add to that a murder mystery and a great cast of characters and you'll understand why this book is a winner. Nevada Barr is great and so is this book!

Nature, man or something else?

Anna Pigeon faces a real puzzle in this story as she struggles to make sense of nature's way after being attacked by a grizzly and subsequently finding a murdered and disfigured hiker. This is a well thought out plot with plenty of clues sprinkled throughout, which only in hindsight lead up to the unexpected conclusion. Nevada Barr brings you right inside Anna's mind where you share Anna's full range of emotions as she fights to maintain her beloved connection with nature and the wilderness.

Not one of her best. The ending was a little too far "out there" in terms of reality.

As with all the Anna Pigeon books, this one started off strong on the first page and continued to hold my interest until the very end. There was very little about Anna's personal life in this book, which appeals to some readers. Personally, I enjoy learning more about her when she's not on duty. But, overall, I rate the book quite highly and will, of course, continue to read other Anna Pigeon novels.
