Nevada Barr’s award-winning mystery series captivates fans with vividly drawn wilderness settings and the resourceful sleuth, middle-aged park ranger Anna Pigeon. Deep South portrays Anna boldly confronting hostile teenagers, suspicious locals, and a resentful “old-boy” network as she struggles to solve a gruesome murder. Anna leaves behind her beloved Mesa Verde to take on a position as district park ranger of the Mississippi Natchez Trace Parkway. Once there she faces an angry staff that refuses to work with a woman supervisor. But she pushes that difficulty aside when she stumbles over the body of a teenage girl, shrouded in a hood reminiscent of the KKK. As Anna searches for the truth amidst lies and evasions, she discovers the overgrown woods, thick with kudzu, hold dark secrets that can only lead to violence. Nevada Barr draws on her own experience as a ranger on the Natchez Trace Parkway to create believable situations. Barbara Rosenblat transports you to the Mississippi countryside to feel the sultry heat and smell the heady scents. Download and start listening now!

    " I have a friend that brought me pictures of the Natchez Trez and of the building where some of it took place. So I had a real visual when I was reading the book. Again a good write for Barr, and she had good character development and intrigue in this one as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 2/28/2011

    " Entertaining, but probably more so because the novel is set along the Natchez Trace, which we cycled in September of last year. Didn't guess the ending though. "

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

    " Great writing. Especially character and land description. good tension. Seemed wordy in places. Mystery element OK, but felt contrived near the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/15/2011

    " One of the creepiest and most disturbing evil-doers Anna has ever come upon. The kind where you want to poke someone and say "can you BELIEVE they did that?!" You forget you're reading fiction. "

    " Another mystery series that I just love. Each one set in a different National Park. Great female heroine! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 9/17/2010

    " This book was okay. Nothing special, but kept me interested for the most part. I feel like pretty much anyone with college writing experience could've authored it. Definitely not life changing, definitely not going down in the books for literary greatness, but entertaining nontheless. "

About the Author

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.
