Once again Anna Pigeon must try to face her demons, those of her own past and the ones among the Anasazi ruins. Set in Mesa Verde National Park, the death of a fellow ranger and friend sets Anna on a collision course with the rumored "Old Ones," the spirits of the Cliff Palace ruins.
An exciting story on the surface, on another level we see an older, wiser, and much more introspective Anna Pigeon than before. The events bring her closer than ever to confronting her own personal issues that always seem to boil just beneath the surface.
Move over Kinsey Milhone and Kay Scarpetta. Anna Pigeon is as strong and intelligent a female character as this decade has seen!
