I read it in one day. Couldn't put it down. ( )

No true mystery. Friends Kidnapped during a camping trip has Anna using survival techniques to save them. paraplegic Heath also uses unbelievable strength both mentally and later physically to keep them alive. Leah and her daughter actually developed a personality as tensions increased. Although near to passing out from fatigue, gun wounds, Anna still maintains a cool head except when needing to have conversations with a dog coping with only 3 usable legs. Too many pages spent on moving slowly through a forest when each day seems like their last. ( )

Well, this one starts off with a bang.

Anna is in Minnesota, on a camping trip with friends Heath and Elizabeth, along with wealthy Leah, who designs outdoor equipment, and her daughter Katie. Leah had designed the current version of wheelchair Heath is using.

While Anna is out on the river nearby, a group of men take over the camp. With guns they direct where the women are to go and what they will do. Anna overhears some of this but is not in view of the kidnappers so she knows her best bet is to keep hidden and work out how she is to save her friends.

The kidnappers have a plan to move the group through the forest to a plane, and to then contact Leah's husband for ransom money. Their original plan had been easier because the group's original camp site had been closer to their destination, but it had been destroyed by weather. Thus they had followed on foot, hidden until they sprang.

It isn't long before the leader of the gang wants to off Heath and Elizabeth. He doesn't want to be burdened by a cripple and her daughter. But Katie speaks up, saying Heath is actually the wealthy one. For now they are safe. But they all know it's a matter of time.

Hence Leah speaks up. She can remake the wheelchair so it can be moved more easily through the woods, allowing Heath to keep up with the rest. She is given the tools to do the work and she sets to it.

Over the next few days Anna hides and keeps an eye on the group. She takes advantage of opportunities to create difficulties for the kidnappers without revealing her presence. But it's a tense time. There are too many of the kidnappers and they all have lethal weapons along with some short fuses.

True to form, Barr has crafted a suspense-filled mystery, one in which Anna is on the alert and threatened to be exposed at any moment. It's critical that she find a way to rescue her friends before they are murdered, yet she has few resources. Fortunately, she does have her wits and her outdoor skills. As in several other Pigeon mysteries, she relies on those skills to do what most of us simply could not.

It had me on the edge of my seat most of the time. Would they all make it out alive, and if so in what condition? And then there's the dog! I am always super sensitive to situations where a dog can be hurt or killed.

I have to admit that I thought this was an insane kidnapping plan. Even if the location were the original camp site it seemed overly complicated and involved too many people.

What I missed most was a better sense of the forest and the Iron Range where this takes place. I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, which is very similar country to much of Minnesota and I hoped for more details and hidden treasures, which are often a part of Anna Pigeon mysteries. Nevertheless, the story kept me going well into the night. Nevada Barr has much to answer for with respect to my sleep habits.
