This one started slow for me. I guess I need to have the intrepid Anna Pigeon, Park Ranger Extraordinaire, in the story as soon as possible. That way, I can vicariously live a dramatic life of adventure through her. However, in this story, she took a while arriving. I needed to know how things were going with her: her work, her pets . . . her love life.
However, this Anna Pigeon mystery turned out to be a dynamite story. And, of all the books in this series, probably it is the one with the most heart. By the end of the novel, I was cheering for all the women who had been transformed through facing the hard truth in their lives. I also appreciated learning about how abusers captivate and control their victims.
This story also showed much more of Anna’s tender-hearted side, probably because she was juxtaposed against such evil. In addition, as the story unfolded, I began to sympathize with the secondary heroine in the story, much more than I expected, until, by the end, I felt so grateful that she had resolved her difficult issues. I felt encouraged as she found her own power.
The twist near the end really surprised me. I had no idea who the perpetrator of the crimes could be. Usually, I’m making intelligent guesses, one of which turns out to be the right one. In Hard Truth, the real murderer wasn’t even on my list.
Of all the Nevada Barr mysteries, this one was the most difficult to stay with because of its very difficult subject matter. However, I found it, in the end, to be worth it.
What I love about this author is how she starts each book with a new story to tell and new characters but then brings each of those characters into each of her new books. Every character is somehow connected in some way to the others.
Hard Truth was gripping and after reading it in one sitting, couldn't wait to start the next one in the series. Lorna Temple arrives home, after her mother dies, to sell the family farm and ends up on the trail of a killer and to try and find out what happened to her friend who went missing when they were 9 years old. Toss in a hunky PI, his FBI friend and a writer of true crime and it takes them to places Lorna never dreamed of.
The environment is well described and a major part of the book, with mountain roads, campgrounds, forests and lonely cabins. Kind of place you don't want to get lost on your own...
This is not my favourite of the series but I did find it well written as always.
