    whybehave2002: The Mike Bowditch Series is a great addition to this genre. Mike is a Maine Game Warden and the mysteries focus on different places in Maine. I love reading about real places that Anna Pigeon takes us and true to that mind set Mike Bowditch does the same for his state of Maine.… (més)

Synopsis: ' Anna to providing first aid for the crews fighting an especially nasty forest fire, probably caused by arson, in Northern California's Lassen Volcanic National Park. As if living intimately with strangers under stressful conditions weren't trouble enough, more problems flare when Anna and her EMTs must rescue a firefighter who has broken his leg. On their way back to camp, they are trapped in a firestorm--the most dangerous of all fire conditions. Anna is saved by her silver pup tent, or ""shake 'n' bake,"" which she pulls over herself at the last minute as the fire dances on her back. One of the other medics isn't so lucky. Only it's not just bad luck. It's murder. The tension approaches unbearable when bad weather and destroyed roads trap Anna and the rest of her crew with the murderer in their midst.'
Review: I kept wanting this book to 'get on with it'. However, the ending was a surprise as were some of the relationships. ( )

In this thrilling mystery, her resourceful sleuth, middle-aged park ranger Anna Pigeon, travels to northern California where she joins the forces battling an out-of-control forest fire.

Ever since a fire began raging through Lassen Volcanic National Park, Anna has been acting as medic and security officer for the spike camp firefighters. As the blaze dwindles and the camp demobilizes, she stays behind with a small crew to rescue an injured man. Suddenly a thunderstorm whips the remaining embers into a deadly firestorm. After the inferno passes, Anna discovers a crew member didn't make it, but a knife, not the fire, killed him.

Nevada Barr creates scenes so powerful you can almost feel the intense heat and smell the billowing smoke. ( )

So far this is the best Anna Pigeon novel I've read. I loved this setting - fire fighters caught in a National Park, fighting a fire and one of them turns out to be a murderer. But which one? Anna spends several days surrounded by people that she can't trust and everyone is suspicious of everyone else. There's a lot of excitement with the fire, too, and I just kept on reading. ( )

This time Anna is in Lassen Volcanic National Park in California. She is on the fire crew, fighting a large wildfire called "Jackknife", in the act of helping bring an injured firefighter to camp, when a firestorm develops. The firefighters see it approaching and run to safety. Not everyone makes it.

One of those who didn't was murdered. But how could it have happened, during that dangerous firestorm? Anna realizes the murderer has to be one of them. And thus she carefully asks questions, trying not to raise suspicion because the group has not been rescued yet. They have to rely on each other.

Barr offers us a view of a national park from the inside, and a fire phenomenon that many of us haven't even heard of. Her vivid images always send me to image searches and maps, as I think about visiting myself.

The novel also gives us a look at fire gear, particularly protective "tents" that firefighters are required to carry with them in case of being caught in a fire. I went looking for these online as well. They aren't perfect but must save lives every year.

The story keeps us in suspense while Anna struggles with her own trust issues, which in this case might actually save her life. ( )

Very informative of what goes on with all the wonderful people out there fighting for our land, homes, and lives during something almost completely out of our control. I felt as this one went on a little longer than it needed to but maybe that is how it works in real life. They are stranded out there trying to survive while help is trying to make a way to them. Still a great story. :) ( )
