    " This is my 2nd Nevada Barr book. While I liked the story OK, there was just too much bad language for me. I wonder sometimes if female authors who write about female characters feel like they need to add the F-Word to "man" them up a little; maybe toughen up their characters. I don't know, but I do know that I won't be reading any more Nevada Barr. This audio book was abridged, so I was hoping most of the trash would be left out. If that really was the case I'd hate to have read the unabridged version. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/14/2014

    " I forced my way through this book because she is a popular author. I just couldn't get into it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 2/6/2014

    " A murder mystery with park rangers, what's not to like? It started off a bit slow-but ended up enjoyable and not considered a waste of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 2/3/2014

    " I have read several Anna Pigeon mysteries and have been a fan for quite a while. I have back tracked to this one, #3. I thought it was well done and an interesting mystery that kept me interested throughout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 2/2/2014

    " Very Good; Continuing character: Anna Pigeon; National Park ranger investigates spirits and murder in cave dwellings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nijole | 1/30/2014

    " thanks, amy! glad we managed not to get ourselves murdered in mesa verde. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 1/21/2014

    " Mesa Verde National Park mystery "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frodo | 1/18/2014

    " Took me a while to get into these characters but I finally am enjoying the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mara | 1/18/2014

    " Recommended (and loaned) by my uncle who also loves Tony Hillerman. The main character is a park ranger and - shockingly - wherever she goes, someone dies and she solves it. Not high literature, but pretty darn entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Cooper | 1/17/2014

    " Anna Pigeon is cool. I was very sad to miss out on Mesa Verde Park recently, when I was in Colorado. Embarassing to say, but I wanted to visit a place where one of the books has been set. "

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

    " This was pretty short on mystery, but the setting in Mesa Verde was great and Barr's descriptive writing is very satisfying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/8/2014

    " Anna is a wonderful, compelling character. All of her books are a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monique | 11/8/2013

    " I love how you don't get a sense of 'who-dun-it' in these novels. Makes for an interesting time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia | 7/31/2013

    " I enjoy all the Anna Pigeon mysteries. I love Nat'l parks and enjoy reading about them. There are a lot of pieces to this story, and the causes/connections didn't become obvious til the very end. "

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

    " Really enjoying this series. It's light, but so are most of the series I read. The new-park-per-book locations mix things up and give us a varied cast of characters. The mysteries are creative. And I just get a kick out of Anna. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi | 11/20/2012

    " Another good Anna Pigeon mystery and this one is in one of my favorite parks. "

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

    " I enjoyed the mystery behind this installment in the Anna Pidgeon series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam Knox | 10/29/2012

    " Good entry in the series. Second with Frederick Stanton. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April Hochstrasser | 8/26/2012

    " Not one of her best, it tended to drag along. Maybe because I listened on CD and the reader was SOOOO dramatic, even with the parts that weren't dramatic. It wore on my nerves. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul | 5/12/2012

    " We read this while in Mesa Verde, which made it a little more interesting, but also seemed a disconnect from our non-murder experience of the park. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/11/2012

    " Read this book because I just recently spent a week at Mesa Verde. As far as mysteries go, I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Osborne | 7/7/2011

    " This was not my favorite in the series. I love Anna but the other characters in this one were unrelatable and strange. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivian | 7/1/2011

    " As usual Nevada Barr uses her Ranger experience to create a mystery set in a National Park. The descriptions make it easy visualize and imagine the setting. Had to pry myself away last night to get some sleep. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/5/2011

    " I was in the southwest while reading this book so it was especially fun. I think I may add this author to my mystery reading. She's prolific and I like her style "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 4/30/2011

    " Having visited Mesa Verde, it was easy to identify the locations of events. The main character, Anna Pigeon, is more multifaceted than many mystery solvers and carries the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Slhess | 1/22/2011

    " Another fun read from Nevada Barr. I especially enjoyed this one since it took place in Mesa Verde. I visited Mesa Verde a couple of years ago with Dad and thoroughly enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rcpgpugh | 12/31/2010

    " I love Mesa Verde, so I really enjoyed this book. "

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

    " The story itself is interesting, the part about Anna's personal struggles not so much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 10/29/2010

    " The third Anna Pigeon, US Wild Life services Ranger, series. Neat mysteries, good concept, strong character and well paced stories "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 QuesterMark | 10/24/2010

    " This particular book might have proveded more character development of Anna than any other book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 9/10/2010

    " Read this book because I just recently spent a week at Mesa Verde. As far as mysteries go, I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dharma | 6/13/2010

    " Really good book, enjoying Nevada Barr's writing a great deal. I think this is my third by her. Reading them out of sequence which mostly is fine but not my usual habit of reading in order. Plan to keep progressing through all of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 6/13/2010

    " This is the first Anna Pigeon mystery that I've read. The setting was interesting and the mystery complex enough to keep me interested. I really enjoyed this book and I will look for more in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Catherine | 5/18/2010

    " I learned a lot about Mesa Verde that I did not know altho I had visited there before I read the book. Barr is always dependable for a mystery escape to a national park. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 4/19/2010

    " I forced my way through this book because she is a popular author. I just couldn't get into it. "

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.
