"Action-packed...a narrative that plunges readers into mystery [and] mayhem."—The Denver Post

Hoping a raft trip in Big Bend National Park will lift her spirits, Anna Pigeon and her husband Paul go to southwest Texas, where the Rio Grande is running high. The beauty of the Chihuahuan Desert and the power of the river work their magic—until the raft is lost in the rapids and a young college student makes a grisly discovery. Caught in a strainer between two boulders—and more dead than alive—is a pregnant woman. Anna will soon discover that nature isn't the only one who wants to see the woman and her baby dead...

      • bioText:

        "Nevada Barr has carved out her own fictional fiefdom, creating a body of work like no other, the San Diego Union Tribune remarked in 1996 upon the publication of the fifth book in Barrs acclaimed series featuring National Park Service Ranger Anna Pigeon. Since the 1993 publication of the first Anna Pigeon novel, Track of the Cat, which was awarded both the Anthony Award for Best First Novel by The Crime Writers Association and the Agatha Award for Best First Novel by Malice Domestic, Barr has earned a reputation as a talented and much admired writer. As the Chicago Tribune said, Nevada Barr is a park ranger who can write up a storm.

        The daughter of two pilots, Barr bears the name of the state in which she was born. She grew up at a little mountain airport in Johnsonville, California. After attending college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and completing her graduate studies at the University of California at Irvine, she moved to New York City to pursue a career in theater. She stayed there for five years, as a member of the Classic Stage Company, performing in Off-Broadway shows.

        From New York, Barr went to Minneapolis, where she tried her hand at more theater work, landed some spots on television commercials, and worked on industrial films, among other things. Her former husband was involved in the Park Service, which inspired her interest in wildlife and conservation, and eventually led to the profession that until recently she shared with her main character: National Park Service Ranger.

        When she felt she could afford to, Barr began to work summers at various parks, and spent her winters pursuing a career in writing. She published her first novel, Bittersweet, in 1984, but it was during her tour of duty in Guadalupe Mountains in Texas, that Barr conceived of the Anna Pigeon character and began the series with her critically acclaimed, award-winning debut, Track of the Cat, in 1993. She then followed up with eight more novels set in various National Parks: A Superior Death (1994) set in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado; Ill Wind (1995) set in Isle Royal National Park in Michigan; Firestorm (1996), which was awarded Frances Prix du Roman dAdventure and nominated for Anthony Award for Best Novel, set in Lassen Volcanic National Park in California; Endangered Species (1997) set in Georgias Cumberland Island National Seashore; Blind Descent (1998) set in Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico; Liberty Falling (1999) set at Liberty and Ellis Islands in New York City, Deep South (2000), set in the Natchez Trace Parkway in Mississippi, Blood Lure (2001) set in the Waterton National Peace Park in Montana and Canada, Hunting Season (2002) set in the Natchez Trace Parkway.

        February 23, 2009
        Bestseller Barr skillfully blends sticky border issues, marital strife and politics in her exciting 15th novel to feature National Park Service ranger Anna Pigeon. Anna, on leave because she's still suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder suffered in 2008's Winter Study
        , takes a delayed honeymoon with her sheriff husband, a rafting trip in Texas's Big Bend National Park. The Rio Grande reveals a number of surprises, including a stranded cow and, more disturbingly, a dying pregnant woman caught in a strainer. Fortunately, the resourceful Anna is able to perform a C-section and save the baby's life if not the mother's. Things get really serious after a sniper kills first the couple's guide and then a fellow rafter. Meanwhile, at Big Bend's Chisos Mountain Lodge, Houston mayor Judith Pierson announces she's running for governor, and her security chief must worry about keeping Pierson's errant husband in line. The vivid Texas backdrop lends color. Author tour.

        Starred review from March 15, 2009
        Will a river-running trip down the Rio Grande help park ranger Anna Pigeon recover from her devastating winter in Isle Royale ("Winter Study")? Wrung out and struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder, Anna has been put on administrative leave. She and husband Paul opt to vacation in Texas's Big Bend National Park. The group trip quickly hits the rapids, leaving them raftless and helping a half-drowned woman give birth at the river's edge. Who is she, and is she a Mexican national? When this stranger dies and a sharpshooter starts aiming at the tourists, Anna moves into full gearwith a newborn baby in her arms. The parallel story involves Darden White, a longtime security guard smoothing the way for his charge, who is launching a campaign for governor at Big Bend. Mayor Judith Pierson is as scrappy as Anna, and when the two story lines intersect, fierce action ensues. Straddling the U.S.-Mexico border, the Rio Grande makes a fitting metaphor for the undercurrents in our two countries' relationships. Leave it to Anna to tackle both racism and sexism in her usual, indefatigable way. An essential series for all public library mystery collections. [See Prepub Alert, "LJ" 12/08.]Teresa L.

        Unable to shakethe despondency and self-doubt that settled on her afterher horrific experiences atIsleRoyale (Winter Study, 2008), Anna is put on administrative leave. In a move designed to help her recover, her husbandarranges to take her on a guided rafting trip in Big Bend National Park, which straddles the border between Texas and Mexico. Their companions are four college students. Within hours of their departure, the raft careens into rocks andis lost.The occupants have barely recovered from the shock whenone of them makes agruesome discovery: the body of a very pregnant woman caught among tangled branches.Though unable to save the woman, Annasaves the child, whosewelfare becomes her mission.Unfortunately, some people have other plans for thetiny new life and the struggling rafters.Arivetingseries ofgut-wrenching eventsheads the book, winding down about midway as thepersonalities on shore and the mystery surrounding the childcome into focus.Barr isless successful than usual in masking her evildoers, but herextraordinary ability to create electrifying dramain the natural world is unequivocal, as is her compelling portrait of Annareal enough to touch as she struggles toregain herconfidence, her enthusiasm, andher sense of self.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2009, American Library Association.)
