A new national park assignment, a new mystery.
When I read her books, I feel as if I am visiting.
Always a good read.

From Publishers Weekly: "Barr lands another successful entry in the solid series featuring Anna Pigeon, the down-to-earth National Park Service ranger last seen in A Superior Death (1994). The daily problems at Mesa Verde National Park are mostly straightforward, although Ted Greeley, the contractor installing a water line, tends to irritate folks (especially the park archeologist, incensed about Greeley's indifference to buried Anasazi artifacts), and Patsy Silva, a park secretary, is getting "weird" messages from her ex-husband, who has joined Greeley's crew. The summer takes on darker hues when ranger Stacy Meyers panics so badly during the evacuation of an asthmatic child that he is useless. Soon afterward, Stacy vanishes; his corpse is found tucked away in the park in a scene of death that is "pathologically neat." Anna is assigned to assist Frederick Stanton, the deceptively "vague and bumbling" FBI agent sent in on the case; as they match wits with an unknown adversary, their working relationship takes on warmer tones than at their last meeting. Despite being troubled by memories of her late husband and her increasing fondness for alcohol, Anna (usually) displays that common sense and appreciation for nature that makes her such good company."

Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon books just keep getting better as she goes along! This plot's puzzling twists will keep you worrying and wondering until nearly the end.

From back cover: When national park ranger Anna Pigeon needs to find peace, she turns to nature for solace. Lucky for her, it's close at hand--but then again, so is murder...
Newly assigned to Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado, Anna is enthralled by its ruins: the ancient cliff dwellings of a vanished Native American civilization. But Anna's reverie is shattered by an inexplicable illness affecting visitors to the popular landmark--and two mysterious tragedies: the death of a child...and the murder of a friend.
Now she must find the very human source of the evil wind that is blowing through the ruins. For it threatens more innocent lives--including Anna's own...
