Marooned on Cumberland Island National Seashore off the coast of Georgia, Anna finds time weighing heavily as she waits out a 21-day assignment on fire detail. When the sudden plane crash in the inland palmetto thickets calls her and the other members of the fire crew to action, the flames are quickly extinguished. But suspicions smolder over the cause of the accident which killed both the pilot and his passenger, Cumberland's lone law enforcement ranger.

The tightly-knit island society begins to seethe with hushed accusations. As tensions escalate, Anna and crew find themselves pressed service. Though the experts are called in to evaluate the crash, Anna can't let the investigation rest solely in their hands. Her inquiry causes her to stumble into shady dealings that question the integrity - and honor - of her own crew. Cumberland Island has no fences or alarm systems to guard its cherished goods, only the eyes and ears of a handful of determined rangers. But will protecting the island come at a price even Anna is unwilling to pay? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Suzanne | 6/29/2013

    " Never "got" this book. Kept reading it, kept reading it, kept reading it (until I actually finished it) thinking it would get better, tie it all together & make sense. It never ever did. Very frustrating. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenn | 5/18/2013

    " Bore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 2/13/2013

    " This was a fun read. It took me a minute to get into it though. She starts you off right in the midst of travel and leaving their home behind. She's driving to California to her husband and she has her four children with her. All sorts of crazy things happen to them on there way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 11/6/2012

    " At first I laughed and laughed as I read this book because so many of the phrases were those I heard during my growing up years in small town, KY. Then the author just seemed to ramble aimlessly. Mostly I just didn't think she tied events together enough to weave a story. Still I laughed a lot... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeanie | 6/24/2012

    " I thought this book was dull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joselle173 | 5/8/2012

    " A quick read about a Kentucky Mom and her four kids moving across country to CA on a road trip in the early 1950s. Hysterical at some points. I didn't care for the ending - sort of falls apart, which was a disappointment with the first 2/3rds of it being really good. Still worth the read though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Posey | 8/23/2011

    " I got about three quarters of the way through the book and gave up. Boring! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 bookczuk | 6/6/2011

    " I trtied. Honestly. But if I saw one more double name (Becky Jean, Lila Mae, Irene GAye, Billy Cooper...and that's just in the first four pages!) I thought I'd scream. Not all of us in the south go by two first names. Cripes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ralph | 5/17/2011

    " The 3 stars is based on the "I" part of the rating. The book is well written and I enjoyed the national park setting and the characters. The mystery was well disguised and kept you guessing. This book is registered at bookcrossing.com. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 5/8/2011

    " I think I will quit with Nevada Barr for a bit and read something else. I love Anna Pigeon but the plots seem a bit simplistic after awhile. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Asvendsen8451 | 4/4/2011

    " I enjoy reading books that are set in places that I have been. The biology teacher at LC took students on a trip to the Okefenokee swamp in Georgia which included a trip to Cumberland Island. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ayelet | 4/3/2011

    " The mystery is good - the saga of Anna's sister and boyfriend is a little too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/17/2011

    " This will be my first of the National Park mysteries by Nevada Barr. Just got back from Cumberland Island National Seashore, the setting of this book, so thought it would be a fun read. "

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

    " An excellent "But if you didn't do it, and he didn't do it... but she wasn't... and he did..." Lot's of turnaround and suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 12/28/2010

    " I enjoyed this book although not my favourite of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 11/15/2010

    " Once I got past the first couple of boring chapters about the turtles, the remainder of this mystery held my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tania | 8/3/2010

    " The fifth in the Anna Pigeon series. This detective story takes place on Cumberland Island off the Georgia coast. I good detective story with interesting national park tidbits thrown in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 6/20/2010

    " This is the 5th anna pigeion series, well written and gives a nice picture of the national park system. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi | 6/1/2010

    " Did not enjoy this one as much as I have the others in the Anna Pigeon series . . . mostly because I listened to it over a period of several months so I was not fully engaged. "

    " Good story. I liked the turtles. "

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.
