"The latest entry in this excellent series featuring National Park Service ranger Anna Pigeon is one of Barr's best....A tightly plotted, satisfying read. The author's masterful descriptions of the natural world immeasurably enhance an exciting, suspenseful story." (Publishers Weekly)

"Edge of your seat..."
Have enjoyed Nevada Barr for years. Really liked the flow of this book. Great story.
Recommend to anyone.
the further you got in to it. kind of slow at start but mystry and dry jokes and over all got alot better as book progressed.
Couldn't stop listening. This is my 3rd Navada Barr in the Anna Pigeon series, I will listen to them all. Barbara Rosenblatt brings the characters to life but the extraneous noises, such as swallowing, should be eliminated. I highly recommend this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the author's writing and prose. The narrator is quite talented and can effectively create a number of different voices, although I do have to agree with the other reviewers about the swallowing sounds that the narrator imparts that can be a bit distracting at times. 95% of the book is a superb detective story, but unfortunately, the ending is somewhat disappointing as Anna really doesn't solve the crime as much as she stumbles into the solution. But it's a story worth listening to and I intend on listening to some of the author's other works.
learned a lot about bears & Glacier National Park. great story and detective work too!
"Meandering story, Narration Not the Best"
Barbara Rosenblat does the male-female range well and her voice is generally easy on the ear. However, her delivery is punctuated -- way too frequently -- with sharp intakes of breath that I found both unprofessional and disturbing. Other problems with the delivery -- she changes Joan's accent in one episode, quite markedly. And in one other episode the narrator sounds as though she is eating while speaking.
The story meanders. And at times is simply not credible. Moreover, Anna Pigeon is not the sharpest law enforcement officer/detective around (compare with Gabriel Allon in Daniel Silva's excellent series and her skills are amateurish at best). My first Anna Pigeon book, and probably my last.
Pleasant. Heavy breather.
Some of the descriptions of the park were quite enjoyable.
"Classic Nevada Barr"
I have enjoyed all of Nevada Barr's books. Anna Pigeon is a great character and It is nice to visit the National Park's with her.
"I love the Anna Pigeon mysteries!"
I very much enjoyed this book and am delighted to discover the Anna Pigeon mysteries. I plan on listening to them all. I think the reader is very good with her different character voices, but there must be some way that the little noises such as swallowing can be eliminated. They are distracting.
I enjoyed listening to this book, had a hard time stopping
