Format: Hardcover
Can you imagine Anna Pigeon as an undercover agent using a cover as a waitress at the swank Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite? Having stayed at and dined in the hotel's restaurant in the past, I was hooked. When I opened the book and saw a map of Yosemite, I thought, Wow! Is this going to be great or what?
Four young employees have turned up missing from their dwellings, and the park service has no clues. Anna is brought in chat up the other employees to find out what might have happened to them. Her entry isn't as smooth as it could have been. The chef and the head of the wait staff don't seem too enthralled with Anna getting such a plum job when she obviously isn't a very good waitress. She's bunking with some very young women who are young enough to be her daughters, which limits her interaction possibilities with them. But soon, bizarre people and events start to build up, and clearly the chase is on. The action builds to an exciting climax as Anna unravels the central element of the mystery. This section of the book is a definite five-star effort. But the book slows down from there and moseys on to a predictable ending.
The book has little character development in it to help you enjoy the story more. So the action elements are what drive the story's appeal. And there just aren't enough of those elements.
Parts of the plot are very implausible and almost reminded me of a satire of every gruesome Halloween movie you've ever seen. So take all of those as a sort of campy humor if you want to enjoy the book more.
Fans of Anna Pigeon novels should definitely read the book, but don't expect to find this one to be one of your favorites in this excellent series.
Take action!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Being a ranger and having visited many National Parks in the States I am drawn to the works of Nevada Barr, even though I know they aren't exactly literature. I read "Firestorm" ages ago and that was a good little adventure story.

This is set in Yosemite, but revolves around the disappearance of 4 young people. Basically it all revolves around drugs, a seedier side of life in "Paradise". Whilst it is quite a good little story there are too many aspects which are unbelievable - like the fact that a plane crashes and nobody notices.

I suppose in the end the characters aren't that well drawn, just vague stereotypes and although its nice not to have a perfect super ranger in Anna Pigeon, some of the things she does (like confronting criminals all the time) are pretty silly.

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Jan. 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Anna Pigeon is a National Park ranger moving around the States to show us different parks. This time she is in Yosemite to investigate why four young employees disappeared. She is sent undercover as a waitress in the restaurant but the rest of the staff resent her and are not very helpful. The Sierra Nevadas are snowy and a harsh environment even in tourist season. Anna finds the valley dark and depressing under the Dome rock's shadow and can't wait to get higher. The modern scourge of drugs is implicated instead of personal reasons or natural causes - it seems there's nowhere you can go today without them.
This is a good read but not my favourite of the series.
