This has been my favorite Nevada Barr so far. A female ranger up there in the mountains tracking, and all alone. Great story.

As the first book in the series, you can tell Anna hasnt been fully developed as a character. Many of the side characters feel extremely artificial and the ending feels disjointed from the rest of the book. Try a different Anna Pigeon novel first, you wont miss much.
