This time she is park ranger in the Glacier National Park assisting a researcher into the habits & health of grizzly bears. On the second night out, a camper is found with a broken neck & half her face cut away. A young boy disappears. As always, Nevada Barr's plotting is exciting & clever - the suggestion that bears may be responsible or that the ripped tents of tourists could have been by other predators? There is something ghostly about the dangers they face - nothing is quite as it should be. The ending is absolutely brilliant when everything comes together. Nevada Barr writes so well - the vivid pictures of the National Park & its wildlife stay in the mind long afterwards especially the bears. It's a gripping thriller.

When I recently saw a baby black bear in a National Park, all I could think of was this book. At least it kept me in the car, just as the ranger advised! Once more a beautiful description of the scenery combines with a gripping sense of man made danger.

One of Barr's best books, this shows her well into her stride. Anna Pigeon is a National Park Ranger who moves around the States. Here she is in mountain country at Glacier National Park. Grizzly bears are being studied and Anna has to hang out meaty lures to help count them. But a young woman is found dead - her neck is broken and chillingly her face has been carved up with a knife. Anna searches for a murderer but the forensic people can't even tell her what the murder weapon was. By now Anna has got over her drink problem of the earlier books. That did make her human but it got tiresome so Barr shows that she has got over the issue mainly by staying off drink and keeping busy out in the wilderness.
The people in this tale are very well drawn and the majestic bears are well described. As always the environment is the real star.
