Nevada Barr quickly attracted the attention of mystery fans when her first Anna Pigeon mystery, Track of the Cat, appeared.

Now she immerses the intrepid park ranger in a perilous search that will take her far below the waters of Lake Superior. As Anna spends her days patrolling its shores, the surface of Lake Superior fills with tourists. In the depths below lie an ancient ship and the bones of its sailors. But when two tourists dive down to see the wreck, they discover that a new body has joined the skeletal crew. As Anna tries to discover how and why, she encounters secrets darker and more deadly than the waters surrounding the corpse.

Filled with suspense, A Superior Death is also laced with Anna Pigeon’s self-deprecating humor. With Barbara Rosenblat’s spirited narration, you’ll immediately be scanning the splendid setting and looking for clues through the eyes of the savvy naturalist.

    " This had a couple of twists that I just didn't see coming... and I will admit, I love it when the bad guy ends up being a gal. :) I've read so many Anna Pigeon mysteries and I'm kind of out of sequence. I need to fill in a few more gaps before I've read them all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 1/30/2014

    " A most enjoyable read, with a very clever and strong heroine...my favorite kind! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terah | 1/26/2014

    " Quickly becoming a new favorite. Anna is tough and almost fearless. This one was about diving which was kinda neat to read about. Never really experienced a read like that. Love to feel like I'm apart of the action and this one really puts you under the water. I thoroughly enjoy Barr's fast forward style of writing too. Craving the next one already. Long Live Oscar!! <3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Cooper | 1/23/2014

    " This was the second Anna Pigeon book that I read, and probably one of my favorites. I'm not sure how I feel about Lake Superior-- I don't want to be cold & damp in the middle of the summer!-- but I liked reading about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 1/22/2014

    " so i am getting into these nevada barr books because the main character is a women (yeah) plus she is a park ranger (double yeah) these are fun quick mystery reads - the best part about her books is that she does an excellent job of describing the parks - this was a fun one for me because i read it before i went out to isle royale (the park the book takes place) plus she talks about lake superior and duluth... which i love to read about of course! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 1/14/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fullfaun | 1/3/2014

    " I didn't finish this book, but I caouldn't take reading any more about how wonderful MIchigan's Great Lakes are and not being able to go there myself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqueline | 1/1/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessie | 12/31/2013

    " My introduction to the Anna Pigeon books, bought from the NPS gift shop on Isle Royale. This book was what made me want to be a park ranger. "

    " I'm finding it's interesting to re-read mysteries. I remember some parts of the story but not all of the details. I really enjoy the fact that this series is set in National Parks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arizonagirl | 12/7/2013

    " Book Two of the Anna Pigeon Mysteries "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C K | 7/19/2013

    " Follow Anna Pigeon as a National Park Service Law Enforcement officer and learn about all the different National Parks, the big and the small. This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dharma | 6/4/2013

    " As usual, a lovely job evoking a sense of place, and in this case a bit of claustrophobia. There was one element, a sub-sub plot, that was a bit of an overreach and more titillating that Nevada usually does, but I can let it go. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 3/20/2013

    " Better than the last Anna Pigeon novel, but that's not saying much. The series is "just ok." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Monique | 11/30/2012

    " very tedious to read due to the lack of punctuation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 10/15/2011

    " I was surprised because I always thought that Anna Pigeon was a park ranger in West Texas--which she was in the first one. In this the second Anna Pigeon book she is a ranger on Lake Superior! Quite a switch. The story was interesting enough. Light reading "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 9/7/2011

    " The second in the Anna Pigeon series, and I'm definitely going to continue reading the rest! This one made me yearn to explore the shores of Lake Superior. Fun charaters (the bear is the best), and a surprise who-done-it. "

    " Enjoyed.. Learned some about diving "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luisa | 4/27/2011

    " Barr writes more than who dun its. Her writing presents us pictures of our national treasures and I relish visualizing her presentation of the parks along with very well written mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki | 1/18/2011

    " Not one of my most favorite Anna Pigeon mysteries, but far better than some of the stuff that passes for "mystery" these days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 1/15/2011

    " Considering my fear of water, this one truly captured the feelings, emotions and situations that are sure to terrify me. We also have a compelling mystery and meet some interesting new characters, some of which we see again in other installments. "

About the Author
Author Nevada Barr

Nevada Barr was born in the small western town of Yerington, Nevada, and raised on a mountain airport in the Sierras. Pushed out of the nest, she fell into theatre, receiving her BA in speech and drama and her MFA in acting before making the pilgrimage to New York City, then Minneapolis. For eighteen years she worked on stage, in commercials and industrial training films, and doing voiceovers for radio. During this time she became interested in the environmental movement and began working in National Parks across the country during the summers. Woven throughout these seemingly disparate careers was the written word. Nevada wrote and presented campfire stories, taught storytelling, and was a travel writer and restaurant critic. She has won both the Agatha and Anthony awards for best first mystery.
