When Anna answers a call to historic Mt. Locust, once a producing plantation and inn on Mississippi's Natchez Trace Parkway and now a tourist spot, the last thing she expects to encounter is murder. But the man Anna finds in the stand's old bedroom is no tourist in distress. He's nearly naked, and very dead, his body bearing marks consistent with an S & M ritual gone awry. On a writing table nearby is an open Bible, ominous passages circled in red.

It seems the deceased is the brother of Raymond Barnette, local undertaker and a candidate for sheriff, who wants to keep any hint of kinkiness out of the minds of the God-fearing populace. Ray may be hiding a house full of secrets in the old family homestead, but before Anna can start her investigation, she's waylaid by malevolent poachers, peevish coworkers, and a suddenly turbulent romantic life. And when hidden agendas and old allegiances are revealed, it's suddenly Anna's life on the line. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 2/9/2014

    " I like this series and this particular one was better than some of the others. I also like that Anna is actually getting a personal life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Peggy | 2/2/2014

    " I couldn't get into this book. Ionly got to page 20. The prose was really hard to follow. I found myself reading a sentance 3-4 time3s trying to figure out what the heck she was saying. The book came highly rated but I just couldn't get going. Maybe another time I'll get through it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynsie | 1/26/2014

    " Hmmm, I was debating between 3 and 4 stars. Just to be generous I gave it 4. I loved this book until about the last 2 chapters. It fell pretty flat at the end. Disappointing for sure, but I did enjoy reading it. I may later change it to 3.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 1/11/2014

    " Not a bad book. Typical Nevada. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/10/2014

    " They're all turning into Dick Francis books to me...So many similar sounding titles that you discover you've read them when you get home from the library... and like Francis - so so as mysteries go...likeable characters...especially Anna Pigeon...Love the settings in our national parks...the settings have compelled me to read more of the series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 1/9/2014

    " This book was filled with all the annoying things I don't like about this and other authors. I've noticed before that Barr really seems to hate 'fat' people but in this book she outdid herself. She must have used the word 'fat' and other similar descriptive terms to describe 'the bad guy' and who is over-weight, in the most derogitory manner possible, about 200 times in this book. She really has a problem! Also, in her previous book, her dog was a black lab, then at the beginning of this book it was a golden retreiver, and finally her dog morphed into a golden lab....for cripes sakes! At least keep track of what kind of dog your main character has!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morrigan | 1/2/2014

    " As always this one kept me wondering and reading, what's a little lost sleep. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kylie | 1/1/2014

    " Excellent, as always. I particularly like the ones set in Mississippi like this one--I love her compassionate and subtle understanding about Southern culture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 12/25/2013

    " I've visited places described inthe book...which added to my enjoyment. The Anna Pigeon Mystery series is set in various National Parks and this one was set in the Natchez Trace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Cooper | 12/8/2013

    " I like that its set in the South. I don't like that its set on a road. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 12/4/2013

    " I'm going to be glad when we're done with the Natchez Trace parks... these aren't my favorite. But I'm still addicted to Anna Pigeon, so here I am anyway! I do like the respect with which Barr treats the racial and social difficulties in the area, and the murder was certainly an interesting twist! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 11/26/2013

    " It took me a while to get into this one, but I did enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 11/17/2013

    " Solid mystery novel. I love Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon mysteries, and while this isn't my favorite of the series, it's still a darn good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 11/13/2013

    " This one was fun too :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 10/26/2013

    " Good story, very descriptive about the park she is in. Strange reading about an industry I work in! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 10/22/2013

    " It took me awhile to get into this book -- I finally was involved about the last third of the book. Unusual because I tend Nevada Barr's mysteries are some of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 8/8/2013

    " I really liked this book. This was interesting and kept me guessing up until the end. I should have seen the outcome and once it hit, I realized I had known it all along. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 5/11/2013

    " Not as good as some of the previous Anna Pigeon mysteries, but continues some characters from the she met when she first came to the Deep South. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 5/8/2013

    " Another Natchez Trace one - Reminds one that Mississippi can be a crazy place! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wilma Rebstock | 2/6/2013

    " This book was enjoyable and a little different that the usual Anna Pigeon boks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette Meier | 7/10/2012

    " I thought I'd figured "who dunnit", but I was wrong! Wonderful storytelling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rich | 6/9/2012

    " Would like to have given it 3.5 on CD edition. Usually I like Audio versions better too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adele Dawn | 3/26/2012

    " I have enjoyed all of the Anna Pigeon series books I've read. It was nice to see Anna become emotionally involved with someone and the story was interesting and moved at a fairly rapid rate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 2/25/2012

    " Not that believable although it does wind up loose ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liberty | 2/23/2012

    " Hope I'm not getting tired of Anna as I attempt to catch up on the series but this one was just a bit better than OK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynnette | 10/28/2011

    " I like Nevada Barr for the descriptions of the parks in the setting her easy read mysteries. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kayleen | 9/6/2011

    " I do not like the Natchez Traces stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perlinda | 4/9/2011

    " Anna Pidgeon is working the Natchez Trace after spending some time in the Glacier National Park. She works a situation at Mt. Locust in the Parkway and finds herself in several strange situations. She is falling in love. She gets many middle of the night phone calls. Life gets complicated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dharma | 3/30/2011

    " I continue to really enjoy this series. The character development of Anna is appealing and carefully drawn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adele | 1/18/2011

    " I have enjoyed all of the Anna Pigeon series books I've read. It was nice to see Anna become emotionally involved with someone and the story was interesting and moved at a fairly rapid rate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Merceda | 12/21/2010

    " Very short Nevada Barr book. I didn't think it was as good as her longer books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 11/16/2010

    " might read more of this author...perspective of female game warden as the main character is entertaining "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita | 10/19/2010

    " I don't think this was the best book in the series. It was atmospheric and a good read but the way the crime was solved was a bit formulaic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leila | 10/13/2010

    " I almost put this book down when the crime was intruced because I didn't want my 'entertainment reading' to contain such information. However I quickly learned that that was not the case and Nevada Barr did not disappoint for the suspense and adrenlin pumping last few pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 9/3/2010

    " Thigpen is a brilliant tribute to the slothful villain who uses his intelligence to cheat the rules by abusing his position with the least real effort on his part. He makes my skin crawl thinking about his believably deceitful nature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 QuesterMark | 8/21/2010

    " The Natchez Trace in Mississippi seems to be a scary place. I anticipated a number of the answers, but the final answer was one I resolved just before turning the page and having Ms. Barr TELL me. This is similar to my experience with Deep South. Recommended!

    " first one of Barr's I've read in Mississippi ... enjoyed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 7/31/2010

    " I feel like the books are a bit repetitive and I spent most of this book frustrated that Anna hadn't figured it out yet. "

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.
