Publisher Comments:

Nevada Barr brings her acclaimed New York Times bestselling Anna Pigeon series to Minotaur Books with one of her most compelling, complex novels yet!
 
Anna Pigeon, a Ranger with the National Park Service, is newly married but on administrative leave from her job as she recovers from the traumas of the past couple of months. While the physical wounds have healed, the emotional ones are still healing. With her new husband back at work, Anna decides to go and stay with an old friend from the Park Service, Geneva, who works as a singer at the New Orleans Jazz NHP. She isnt in town long before she crosses paths with a tenant of Genevas, a creepy guy named Jordan. She discovers what seems to be an attempt to place a curse on her—a gruesomely killed pigeon marked with runic symbols; and begins to slowly find traces of very dark doings in the heart of post-Katrina New Orleans. Tied up in all of this is Jordan, who is not at all what he appears to be; a fugitive mother accused of killing her husband and daughters in a fire; and faint whispers of unpleasant goings-on in the heart of the slowly recovering city.

Now it will take all of Annas skills learned in the untamed outdoors to navigate the urban jungle in which she finds herself, to uncover the threads that connect these seemingly disparate people, and to rescue the most vulnerable of creatures from the most savage of animals.

Synopsis:

As she recovers from the trauma of the past couple of months, National Park Service Ranger Anna Pigeon visits an old friend in New Orleans. She's not in town long when she crosses paths with a creepy guy who apparently attempts to put a curse on her, and she begins to slowly find traces of very dark doings in the heart of post-Katrina New Orleans.

Synopsis:

Anna Pigeon is on leave from her job after a traumatic past couple of months. It seems like the perfect time to pay a visit to her old colleague Geneva, who now works as a jazz singer in the Big Easy. But Anna isnt in town long before she crosses paths with Genevas neighbor, Jordan, who gives her the creeps. Then Anna discovers a gruesomely killed pigeon marked with runic symbols. Is this a dark coincidence—or has she been cursed?

Now it will take all of Annas skills learned in the untamed outdoors to navigate the post-Katrina urban jungle in which she finds herself. Tied up in all of this evil magic are the “gutter punk” Jordan; Clare, a fugitive mother accused of killing her family in a fire; and faint whispers of unpleasant goings-on in the heart of the slowly recovering city…
