Entally by reading A Superior Death a Nevada Barr mystery n which Ranger Anna Pigeon solves a murder while stationed on the Isle I got the park atmosphere I was looking for and an enjo Why have I never picked this series up before I ve been vaguely aware of t for ages but t never appealed to me for whatever reason But I wanted a book set n Isle Royale to read on my trip there so I decided on this one So good It was lovely to read this book while I was on the sland but beyond that connection the way Barr writes about nature and the park s spellbinding What a wonderful way to learn about a National Park Additionally I found Anna Pigeon to be a really compelling character loved her nner voice and the fact that she s a 40 year old woman with no kids leading a not so traditional life Will definitely be reading of this series I am so glad that I went back to this series The first book Track of the Cat was very good but I am beginning to think that I liked this one better Nevada Barr has a way of drawing Annie and the Outlaw in the readern from the very beginning and holding your full attention straight through to the end Even f you think you have figured full attention straight through to the end Even f you think you have figured where she The Single Dad's Redemption is going you still hold on to each wordn case there A Christmas Affair is something there that you might not have picked up onn the beginning but you are darn sure you want to know n the endThis time Anna Pigeon has been reassigned to Isle Royale n Lake Superior hence the name where one of her assigned duties The Apple Orchard is watching over the Kamloops a vessel that sunkn 1927 with 5 sailors on board Well that When Hitler Took Austria: A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son is what she has been told but up comes a diver swearing that there are six men down there Now Annas not a big fan of deep diving considering the fact that f you come up too uickly the closest decompression chamber s two very painful hours away That s f you do not die n the mean timeYep there s an extra body down there and why s he wearing an old fashioned sailor s uniform Darn the peaceful summer with the entertaining wild life and the adventuresome scuba diving tourists just got a whole lot troublesomeThis s not the only story going on Nope that would be too easy for Anna You also have the missing wife of a fellow ranger you have a head twisting what did you say relationship nvolving Hawk and Holly who are members of a dive team and you have a young ncorrigible named Carrie Ann who keeps sneaking off to the utter frustration of her mother I know t sounds like a lot to keep track of but Ms Barr writes each character so clearly that the only confusion that I had was which boat belonged to whomWithout being repetitive there are occasional get caught up sections where things are re analyzed much n the thinking aloud concept where the reader says oh that s right that makes sense The who done Ensimmäinen maailmansota it parts not apparent from the beginning and the reader s lead down many different paths as Anna herself s trying to figure The Lion Seeker it all out at the same timeI really enjoyed this book and I will definitely move the nextn the series up on my list The books are not deep but they are twisty so you will have to pay attention This author sets her murder mysteries n national parks like Yosemite This book s set Tom Waits - Mule Variations in my home waters Upper Michigan Wisconsin on a national park that covers an entiresland n the Great Lakes Isle Royale on Lake Superior Hence the titleI read this murder mystery some years ago As I recall the mystery tself was slow going at first the heroine Anna was sad and pensive because her husband recently died n NYC Eventually the plot picked up and became suitably ntense at times I remember a vivid and dangerous dive scene down to the submerged shipwreck Also there was some weird ncest sibling love thing going on However I was disappointed n how Barr portrayed the setting on Isle Royale n Lake Superior I have been there hiking and camping for about 4 days It s Isle Royale n Lake Superior I have been there hiking and camping for about 4 days It s uniue and fascinating place an nternational biosphere with wild wolves preying on the wild moose and with carnivorous pitcher plants and other nteresting flora The rocky volcanic sland s turning to soil almost right Das Augsburger Bekenntnis in front of our eyes Scientists from all over the world conduct research here I vividly remem.
