I liked the descriptions of caving, but the mystery does not hold up. ( )

One of her best. If you've ever been a spelunker, (to which I plead guilty), you will be thrilled. ( )

Another Anna Pigeon adventure - this one in Lechugilla Cave at Carlsbad. Typical stuff happens - there's an accident but it could be murder and Anna will crack the case even if her superiors tell her to mind her own business.

But I have to wonder this. Every year someone is killed and Anna says "It wasn't an accident!" Then someone tries to kill Anna but she stops them and they turn out to be the murderer. She's always right. So why, every year when this happens and Anna says, "Hey, that wasn't an accident!" they don't believe her? Also, in reality, she might have decided to go into a different line of work. . . .

But they're book candy so I keep on reading! ( )

We find Anna Pigeon deep inside the Lechuguilla caverns, part of the Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The Lechuguilla caverns were discovered in 1986 and even today are open only to scientific explorers and other serious researchers. The caverns are pristine and can only be maintained that way if the public is not tromping through them.

Anna finds herself rappelling into the deep recesses of the cave and crawling through narrow tunnels because she is a friend of an injured caver, Frieda Dierkz. Frieda is a dispatcher at Mesa Verde, where Anna is stationed, and she specifically asked that Anna be part of the rescue team.

Anna is not a caver, but she is a rock climber, so has the skills to get around a difficult cave. The fact that she is claustrophobic and the route goes hundreds of feet underground made her less than enthusiastic about the summons. But she went.

The small group finds its way to the injured caver through several hours of difficult caving and everyone is exhausted by the time they reach her. When Anna finds a moment with the disoriented Frieda she finds that she is not altogether coherent. Nevertheless, Frieda tells her quietly that it was not an accident.

And on that moment the story hangs. Anna is not sure whether to credit the statement at all, given Frieda's mental state, but she keeps it in mind and makes sure she is with Frieda throughout the return journey. Which doesn't go well.

As with other Anna Pigeon mysteries, there are many possible suspects and many different avenues to explore. Also as with other Pigeon stories, Anna picks up some of her information accidentally, by overhearing conversations. Most of it, however, she gets from interviewing involved persons while not revealing, in most cases, that she is investigating. She follows leads and takes chances, often breaking rules in the process. Administrative heads can't wait to see her return to her home base.

I love the opportunity to travel with Anna on these one-of-a-kind trips, experiencing the National Parks in ways most people never will or can. As with the other Anna Pigeon mysteries, I headed for Google Images to see some of what Anna saw, to get a sense for the place myself, see if it lined up with my imagination. Barr does an excellent job creating the place for us, and this is at least half of the enjoyment I get from these novels. The rest is from Anna herself and her companions. Anna, who is tough and at times remote but who is deeply compassionate as well. A well-developed character surrounded by a range of interesting characters. Plotting, as always, is careful and complicated. ( )

How Anna Pigeon got started in the national parks.
As always the author Nevada Barr keeps you twisting and turning until the final chapter. She uses the story to tell how cavers should treat caves. ( )

Without their expertise and generosity not only could this book not have been written but I would never have been lured into the beauty of the underground

Anna hadn't seen so much dashing about and popping in and out of doors since the French farce went out of fashion.
