This is the first in the Anna Pigeon mystery series. Anna is a National Park Ranger who, in this book, is based in Guadalupe National Mountains park in Texas. (She moves around from park to park in future books.) As a first mystery, it was competently written though the plotting was a little weak and the characters a bit formulaic. This book deals with the death of another park ranger that the higher-ups are willing to write off as an attack by a mountain lion. But Anna, who discovers the body, disagrees due to several inconsistencies in the evidence and pursues the truth despite pressure from her boss to let it go. From other people, I've heard the books improve over time but that this is an excellent introduction to Anna's character and to what drives her. I love her sister Molly's character!

This is first in the Anna Pigeon series. Anna is a Park Ranger, and this particular book is set in the desert--great nature details/writing. I enjoyed this and look forward to reading the others.

Love this series- the national park settings are a wonderful backdrop for unique mysteries and a main character, Anna Pigeon, who is a refreshing change of pace.

This was an enjoyable introduction to Nevada Barr. Lots of familiarity with rangers and how they operate in the desert.
Strong female lead...interesting (and a bit far-fetched?) characters.

Since I haven't read any books by Nevada Barr, I decided to try her 1st one. I liked it; there were some twists and turns; the author kept the reader guessing who the culprit actually was, and I think it was written quite well. Ms. Barr didn't drag out the background on any of the characters, but made them seem real. A good read for a change. (On my part.)
