Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Running from a proposal of marriage from Sheriff Paul Davidson, Anna Pigeon takes a post as a temporary supervisory ranger on remote Garden Key in Dry Tortugas National Park, a small grouping of tiny islands in a natural harbor seventy miles off Key West. This island paradise has secrets it would keep; not just in the present, but in shadows from its gritty past, when it served as a prison for the Lincoln conspirators during and after the Civil War.

Here, on this last lick of the United States, in a giant crumbling fortress, Anna has little company except for an occasional sunburned tourist or unruly shrimper. When her sister, Molly, sends her a packet of letters from her great-great-aunt who lived at the fort with her husband, a career soldier, Anna's fantasy life is filled with visions of this long-ago time.

When a mysterious boat explosion — and the discovery of unidentifiable body parts — keeps her anchored to the present, Anna finds crimes of past and present closing in on her. A tangled web that was woven before she arrived begins to threaten her sanity and her life. Cut off from the mainland by miles of water, poor phone service, and sketchy radio contact, and aided by one law-enforcement ranger, Anna must find answers or weather a storm to rival the hurricanes for which the islands are famous.

Review:

"When it comes to a vibrant sense of place, Barr has few equals....Those who already admire [Anna Pigeon] will rejoice in this double-layered story with its remarkable setting, passionately rendered; new readers have a treat in store." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Barr's technique of flashing between the past and present...works magically, weaving the two together into an exciting climax....Whether on land or sea, few writers spin a more exhilarating web than Barr." Mary Frances Wilkens, Booklist

Review:

"Fans looking for Barr's trademark pleasures...will have to look hard to find them buried under all those mysteries, villains, and centuries in this most grandly scaled of her 11 adventures." Kirkus Reviews
