Publisher's Summary

The Anna Pigeon mysteries are a New York Times best-selling series. Each addition is eagerly anticipated by fans of its award-winning author Nevada Barr, who uses her experience as a park ranger to create stunningly authentic details. Blood Lure takes Park Ranger Anna Pigeon high into Glacier Park and deep into a grisly murder case. Anna has joined a bear research team in the vast park that spreads from Montana into Canada. They hope to gather enough information to form a picture of its Grizzly bear population. Instead, one terrifying night, a bear finds them. By morning, their camp is in ruins, and the youngest member of the team is missing. A few hours later, the body of a camper is discovered: the neck broken and face mutilated. As Anna sets out to find what, or who, is responsible for the carnage, her search will stretch all her resources, physical, mental, and moral, to new limits. Audie Award-winning narrator Barbara Rosenblat's voice is perfect for Anna, capturing all her courage and vulnerability.

What the Critics Say

"The latest entry in this excellent series featuring National Park Service ranger Anna Pigeon is one of Barr's best....A tightly plotted, satisfying read. The author's masterful descriptions of the natural world immeasurably enhance an exciting, suspenseful story." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Mystifying"

    Couldn't stop listening. This is my 3rd Navada Barr in the Anna Pigeon series, I will listen to them all. Barbara Rosenblatt brings the characters to life but the extraneous noises, such as swallowing, should be eliminated. I highly recommend this book.

    "I love the Anna Pigeon mysteries!"

    I very much enjoyed this book and am delighted to discover the Anna Pigeon mysteries. I plan on listening to them all. I think the reader is very good with her different character voices, but there must be some way that the little noises such as swallowing can be eliminated. They are distracting.

    "Good, but....."

    I thoroughly enjoyed the author's writing and prose. The narrator is quite talented and can effectively create a number of different voices, although I do have to agree with the other reviewers about the swallowing sounds that the narrator imparts that can be a bit distracting at times. 95% of the book is a superb detective story, but unfortunately, the ending is somewhat disappointing as Anna really doesn't solve the crime as much as she stumbles into the solution. But it's a story worth listening to and I intend on listening to some of the author's other works.

    "Meandering story, Narration Not the Best"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Barbara Rosenblat does the male-female range well and her voice is generally easy on the ear. However, her delivery is punctuated -- way too frequently -- with sharp intakes of breath that I found both unprofessional and disturbing. Other problems with the delivery -- she changes Joan's accent in one episode, quite markedly. And in one other episode the narrator sounds as though she is eating while speaking.


    What was most disappointing about Nevada Barr’s story?

    The story meanders. And at times is simply not credible. Moreover, Anna Pigeon is not the sharpest law enforcement officer/detective around (compare with Gabriel Allon in Daniel Silva's excellent series and her skills are amateurish at best). My first Anna Pigeon book, and probably my last.


    What three words best describe Barbara Rosenblat’s voice?

    Pleasant. Heavy breather.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some of the descriptions of the park were quite enjoyable.
