Synopsis: 'The daily problems at Mesa Verde National Park are mostly straightforward, although Ted Greeley, the contractor installing a water line, tends to irritate folks (especially the park archeologist, incensed about Greeley's indifference to buried Anasazi artifacts), and Patsy Silva, a park secretary, is getting ``weird'' messages from her ex-husband, who has joined Greeley's crew. The summer takes on darker hues when ranger Stacy Meyers panics so badly during the evacuation of an asthmatic child that he is useless. Soon afterward, Stacy vanishes; his corpse is found tucked away in the park in a scene of death that is ``pathologically neat.'' Anna is assigned to assist Frederick Stanton, the deceptively ``vague and bumbling'' FBI agent sent in on the case; as they match wits with an unknown adversary, their working relationship takes on warmer tones than at their last meeting. Despite being troubled by memories of her late husband and her increasing fondness for alcohol, Anna (usually) displays that common sense and appreciation for nature that makes her such good company.'
Review: The place is as much a part of the mystery as are the characters. I was particularly taken with the FBI guy. He's an interesting addition. This is a real page-turner. ( )

Another book in the Anna Pigeon mystery series. This is book 3 and she's now a ranger at Mesa Verde. I've been there but it's been years ago. I did like the descriptions she gives of the park.

Compared to the previous one, Superior Death, this book has less suspects and less suspense but that was fine with me. I enjoyed it and read it quickly.

On to the next one! ( )

This time we find ranger Anna Pigeon in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. I wasn't far into it when I started hunting for photos of the park and making tentative plans to visit. Barr does an excellent job of presenting the scene and providing small and large details so we get the feel of the place almost intimately.

Anna is loving being back in the desert, although a very different desert from her first posting, when her enjoyment is shattered by mysterious illnesses and death. Mesa Verde is at a high elevation, which can be tricky for asthmatics, but even so the breathing problems facing some tourists seem greater than can be explained that way. Then a friend is murdered. Anna takes it personally.

Again sneaking out at all hours and finding her way to strange scenes, Anna will not let go until she is either stopped or she solves the case.

I really enjoy the locations of these mysteries, and I enjoy Anna. A loner from way back, Anna loosens up reluctantly, but that doesn't mean she doesn't care about others. She is particularly attached to her older sister Molly and calls her when she can. She is also developing deeper feelings for an FBI agent she met on Isle Royale. ( )

I have read almost all of the Anna Pigeon mysteries and I enjoy the series. I always learn something about history and our national parks. This story took place in the Mesa Verde National Park, by the Anasazi ruins, a place that sounds fascinating. The actual mystery was interesting, and I didn't guess what was killing the tourists until the end. At the same time, the identity of the bad guy made sense. I don't like reading books where the killer turns out to be some random guy with only a bit part. Luckily, that didn't happen here. This was the third book in the Anna Pigeon series, so it was interesting to see how the character has developed during the books. Having read up through book 14 in the series, I know where she is going with her personal relationships. I liked seeing the earlier side of these relationships. This book was fun and held my interest throughout. ( )
