After listening to other books in this series I realized I hadn't heard this one. Although the narrator is one of the best in the business, I found this book to be poorly written. The plot was unrealistic and didn't do the ranger service justice. The story seemed to focus a lot on Anna's confused sexual preference and her relationship with a lesbian, instead of the murder of a fellow ranger. The story jumped all over the place and seemed like everyone was very nonchalant about their coworkers deaths. I found it to be disappointing compared to the other books in the Anna Pigeon series.
So many words mispronounced it was hard to listen to. Really people ... do your research!
Great series taking place in national parks, well developed characters and flawed but realistic heroine. The only complaint is that the narrator did not even bother to look up the correct pronunciation of Guadalupe GUA DA Loo Peh, not GUA DA loop. I bet there is no one in Texas or New Mexico except this narrator making that silly mistake.
I am a long haul owner operator truck driver, listening to audio books has been a salvation for me.
Anna is stronger than I thought she could be, no sissy girly whining! I love it!! good story, love the ending, I listen to a lot of Ranger warden books, most take place in the wilderness of Wyoming and Montana, Anna Pigeon is a Texas Ranger, so her story takes place in the desert mountains. Barbra Rosenblat has narrated a few of the books I have, I do like her style. This is an enjoyable book, and thank-you for making a strong female character!
Long haul Expeditor that loves listening to books and make the miles fly by.
The long pause s between chapters at first made me think something was wrong with my iPhone. After about the 7-8th one it just really got on my nerves & I struggled to finish the book. However, after that far in my curiosity got the best of me & I had to listen to the end. Glad I did too as the murderer was exactly who I thought it was.
Nevada Barr's one of my three favorite authors, and Barbara Rosenblatt's my favorite narrator, hands down. A feast.

I never really got into “Track of the Cat”. The story is well written but it never really transported me there. The descriptions and explanations never made me feel as if I was actually there. I never felt a connection with the main character and the overall story left me wanting more. There wasn’t enough clues or even investigating to get me really invested and the ending really left something to be desired.
The narration was very slow and being a bit older the quality isn’t bad but not up to the standard of something recorded today.
This is the first book I have read by the author Nevada Barr and I liked it a lot! It is a good mystery with a great setting in the Guadalupe Mountains of Texas. I liked the main character, Park Ranger Anna Pigeon. She is unique and likeable.
I am definitely looking forward to continuing the mystery series with the second book: "A Superior Death."
Narration by Barbara Rosenblat was also good.
