Award-winning author Nevada Barr fills the pages of Blind Descent with heart-stopping suspense, plots that twist around every corner, and spectacular wilderness settings. When park ranger Anna Pigeon embarks on a thrilling subterranean rescue mission, she confronts personal demons and a multitude of life-threatening dangers—not all of them from the hostile terrain. A fellow ranger is injured in a suspicious accident while exploring the mostly unmapped Lechuguilla Cavern in New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns. During a fleeting moment of consciousness, the victim calls for Anna. Battling her paralyzing fear of small spaces, Anna descends into the lifeless underworld to uncover what really happened. As Anna wriggles through cramped tunnels and climbs rocky precipices, she discovers treachery and destruction lurking in the inky black just beyond her headlamp. Veteran narrator Barbara Rosenblat provides the perfect voice for the courageous, but very human, park ranger and her colleagues. Download and start listening now!

    " I think I liked this Anna Pigeon mystery best of all I've read so far, maybe because I could relate to her terror and claustrophobia while wriggling through "wormholes" deep inside Lechuguilla Cave. "

    " Gripping, and an education in cave ecology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Thom | 2/6/2014

    " I feel like I can't give a fully honest rating or review of this book because the library copy on CD was so badly scratched, it skipped in many places. I heard enough to keep going though, and I enjoyed the yarn. It's in the same vein (among the books I have read) as the Sue Grafton novels. A brave, vulnerable woman investigating a murder with clues being slowly accumulated while the noose tightens. Well written. No complaints. "

    " brrrr now I'm a bit claustrophobic. Don't ask me to go spelunking! "
