The laws of nature take a terrifyingly murderous turn in this spellbinding addition to the New York Times best-selling series featuring Park Ranger Anna Pigeon.

In Blood Lure, Anna returns to the West, where she is sent on a training assignment to study grizzly bears in Waterton/Glacier National Peace Park, straddling the border between Montana and Canada. But back in her beloved mountains, where the air is pure and cool, Anna fails to find the spiritual renewal she expected. Instead, nature seems to have become twisted, carrying a malevolence almost human in its focus.

Along with Bear researcher Joan Rand and a volatile and unpredictable teenaged boy, Anna hikes the backcountry, seeking signs of the bears. On their second night out, the tables are turned: one of the beasts comes looking for her. Daybreak finds the boy missing and a camper dead, her neck snapped by a single blow, the flesh of her face cut away with a knife. Feeling betrayed by both nature and humanity, Anna must find the beast stalking the trails - leading her listeners deep into a gripping wilderness life-or-death mystery.

Listener Opinions

    " I read this just before I visited Glacier National Park. Her writing style causes a cringe every now and then, but she tells a great story and really makes the national parks come to life. "

    " I needed to give my brain a break for reality so I read this. I enjoyed the mystery and the natural park aspect but Anna totally over analyzes every emotion and that got a little much for what I needed in a quick fun read. I'll still read more of her books but will keep that in mind. "

    " Really fun read. Read in anticipation of our trip to Glacier National Park.

    Since this book is about bear attacks, maybe not a good idea..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 2/4/2011

    " Although this is not my genre, I enjoyed the book's setting (Glacier National Park) and the information on Grizzlies. Since I'm not fond of series, I probably won't read the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 2/2/2011

    " Interesting but not as good as the other Nevada Barr book I've read: Borderline. I've always wanted to visit the Montana National Parks, so that part of this book was of interest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 1/3/2011

    " Little far-fetched, but intriguing mystery about murder and bear scares inGlacier NP. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edna | 12/29/2010

    " I really enjoyed this story set in Glacier ... a good mystery with great prose. I felt I was there! "

    " It was ok. Started out slow then got better, didn't like the ending. She also uses quite a lot of profanity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 11/3/2010

    " A great mystery. And Grizzly Bears are just cool. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 H.s. | 10/31/2010

    " Nailed it. I have even smelled the "blood lure" and yes, it was nassstyy! Thought her ramblings about Glacier National Park were accurate. It is an utterly beautiful place but just as dangerous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 10/29/2010

    " Not my favourite Anna Pigeon mystery, but still a good read. "

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.
