Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's fall in the Sierra Mountains, and Anna Pigeon is slinging hash in Yosemite National Park's historic Ahwahnee Hotel. Four young people, all seasonal park employees, have disappeared, and two weeks of work by crack search-and-rescue teams have failed to turn up a single clue; investigators are unsure as to whether the four went AWOL for reasons of their own — or died in the park. Needing an out-of-park ranger to work undercover, Anna is detailed to dining-room duty; but after a week of waiting tables, she knows the missing employees are only the first indications of a sickness threatening the park.

Her twenty-something roommates give up their party-girl ways and panic; her new restaurant colleagues regard her with suspicion and fear. But when Anna's life is threatened and her temporary supervisor turns a deaf ear, she follows the scent of evil, taking a solo hike up a snowy trial to the high country, seeking answers. What waits for her is a nightmare of death and greed — and perhaps her final adventure.

Review:

"[R]iveting....Barr has a true gift for outdoor writing, using the lush snow as natural cover for the violent life in the wild as well as among the park's human custodians." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Even more appealing than the carefully clued mystery and the exhilarating survey of Yosemite is Barr's matchless control of fictional space, from wide-open to grave-narrow." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This is one of the best entries in a long-running series that seems to increase its audience with every outing." Stephanie Zvirin, Booklist (Starred Review)

Review:

"Barr's even pace and deft characterizations will please series fans while winning her new readers." Library Journal

Review:

"Read it, and your nails will be in serious trouble." New York Daily News

Synopsis:

Park Ranger Anna Pigeon goes undercover at Yosemite National Park to investigate the disappearance of four young seasonal workers.
