Anna Pigeon, a law enforcement ranger at Guadaloupe Mountains National Park in West Texas, finds a colleague supposedly mauled to death by a mountain lion. Anna is leary and begins an investigation that nearly ends in her death by looking into the death despite opposition from her bosses. Suspicion falls on everyone from the murdered ranger's lover, someone oppposed to the dead ranger's efforts to open the park to the public and a powerful rancher opposition to Park Service policies. Decent whodunnit. ( )

The first Anna Pigeon mystery finds her in Texas. She's 39 and widowed and loves the isolation of being a ranger. She also loves the land and wildlife of her new home. She drinks too much and doesn't have many friends beyond her psychiatrist sister in New York City.

When Anna discovers the body of another ranger while she is out scouting for tracks it first looks like that ranger was attacked and killed by a large cat. But Anna has her doubts. Too many things about the discovery don't make sense to her. But her attempts to investigate are not encouraged by her bosses.

The apparent animal death is giving fuel to local ranchers who want to hunt down the large cats that they believe are harming their cattle. Anna will do anything to protect the large cats in her park even if she never actually sees one.

Anna begins her own investigation of her fellow rangers death. When a second employee is also found dead in what looks like another "accident," Anna becomes even more determined to find out what really happened. Then Anna has an "accident" while hiking which almost causes her death. Someone is very determined to shut down Anna's investigation.

I loved the descriptions of the land where Anna is working. I loved Anna's love for the creatures under her care. I was glad when Anna finally made a friend in the park which helped her become less isolated from other people.

The story was filled with suspense and action. Barbara Rosenblat did a great job narrating the story. She had a great handle on Anna's personality and emotions. This is the first of 19 books in the series which all take place in National Parks. ( )

A fun cozy mystery. Anna Pigeon works for the National Parks Service. She discovers the corpse of a fellow park ranger, and is skeptical when a mountain lion is blamed for the death, so she investigates on her own.

[spoiler]This does use the Bury Your Gays trope. The murder victim is lesbian. I almost stopped reading when I learned that... but then it turns out that Anna gets a crush on a woman, and that the murder victim wasn't murdered for being gay, so it kind of redeems itself. I'll be interested to see how Anna's romantic interests evolve over the series.[/spoiler] ( )

Synopsis: 'Anna Pigeon has fled New York City after the accidental death of her husband, and she now works as a law enforcement ranger at Guadaloupe Mountains. Patrolling the remote West Texas backcountry, Anna’s first job as a national park ranger is marred by violence she thought she had left behind: the brutal death of a fellow ranger. When the cause of death is chalked up to a mountain lion attack, Anna’s rage knows no bounds. It’s up to her to save the protected cats from the politics and prejudices of the locals—and prove the kill was the work of a species far less rare…'
Review: The writing is excellent, as is the story line. The ending was a complete surprise that left me wondering about the background of the main character. ( )

Short, and good to the end.

This is the first in a series of murder mysteries set in National Parks, written by a former park ranger. Barr describes the Texas landscape and the life of the protagonist with the emotional charge and you-are-there quality of the best non-fiction. The immediacy and texture of the writing also make the (inevitably a bit far-fetched) murders and action scenes compelling, with a real sense of risk when the main character gets herself into trouble.

There's also an interesting hard-boiled quality to it. The author gives us a main character who seems to be lonely and vulnerable, but as we follow her through the story, we see other aspects to her. In 1993, when the book was written, it may have been ahead of its time, and it still feels fresh today. ( )
