Anna Pigeon is a ranger in the US park service, proficient at the outdoor life. Her disgust at the hunt her colleagues rapidly organise to kill an animal to placate the tourists and the locals leads her to investigate the circumstances in more detail. The rangers are less well-depicted, but even so Anna is not short of leads or ideas about their possible involvement.
The reader is aware that Anna is a woman suffering great sorrow, the cause of which gradually becomes clear. The personality of Anna, and her own story, are more interesting than the standard-issue crime plot, and will doubtless develop in interesting ways in the future.
I thank Sarah of Crimepieces for kindly sending me this book. Her review of it is here. It won both the Anthony and the Agatha awards for best first novel. There are now 17 novels in the series. Thanks Maxine, once again, for an excellent review. I take it this is the first in the series. I should find the time to read it one day, soon. This book was a very good start for an excellent series.

Not only is Anna Pigeon a complicated, yet winning protagonist, the locations, which differ in each book, are very well described. You are commenting using your Google account.
