Publisher's Summary

Marooned on Cumberland Island National Seashore off the coast of Georgia, Anna finds time weighing heavily as she waits out a 21-day assignment on fire detail. When the sudden plane crash in the inland palmetto thickets calls her and the other members of the fire crew to action, the flames are quickly extinguished. But suspicions smolder over the cause of the accident which killed both the pilot and his passenger, Cumberland's lone law enforcement ranger.

The tightly-knit island society begins to seethe with hushed accusations. As tensions escalate, Anna and crew find themselves pressed service. Though the "experts" are called in to evaluate the crash, Anna can't let the investigation rest solely in their hands. Her inquiry causes her to stumble into shady dealings that question the integrity - and honor - of her own crew. Cumberland Island has no fences or alarm systems to guard its cherished goods, only the eyes and ears of a handful of determined rangers. But will protecting the island come at a price even Anna is unwilling to pay?

Investigate more mysterious doings with Anna Pigeon.

What the Critics Say

"As usual, Barr is best at creating believable scenes of action in a setting that is beautifully detailed but never romanticized." (Amazon.com review)

    "badly abridged"

    I just finished listening to and reviewing this and Ill Wind, and this is almost a cut & paste of that review. This was just a little better because I could follow the plot. I enjoyed to look at Cumberland Island National Seashore very much and would have enjoyed it more as a full length book.

    I admit to disliking abridged books in general (with a few notable exceptions and a couple of books that I wished had been abridge, but that's what a good editor should do before the book is published). Considering that Barr's books generally run around 10 hours, cutting it down to under three was foolish, but there was a fairly clear path from mystery to solution with only a few breaks that were completely "huh, what happened". Because it's been so long and this hasn't been made available as unabridged, I suppose you might as well get it, but only if, like me, you want to taste all of Pigeon's backstory as you read or re-read the series.

    "It may be a good story but...................."

    I was excited to see another in book in the Anna Pigeon series. I purchased the book last week and began listening to it. The narration of this new Nevada Barr Anna Pigeon book was so bad that I may not ever listen to it. The narrator, Cindy Williams, was reading in a monotone. I may have to resort to reading this one. I have listened to and enjoyed enjoyed all of previous books read by Barbara Rosenbladt very much. I don't think this is just needing to get use to a change.

    This abridgment is very choppy. It's difficult to track of the characters or follow the flow of action. It's like watching an abridgment of

    "Don't Ever Waste Time on Abridged Nevada Barr"

    Anyone who writes as well as Nevada Barr should never be abridged into an audiobook. I'm still not really sure what happened. It was a confusing and boring read...all the fabulous Nevada Barr descriptions were cut. I hated it.

    "The reader makes the difference"

    We love all of Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon series books, as do we love the voice of Barbara Rosenblat. Barbara makes the story come to life. Unfortunately this book is not read by Barbara instead the reader flies through the story as if it were a list of names in a telephone book.

    In all probability Cindy is a fine audio book reader however in this particular case it is all but impossible to listen to. This was a very sad performance and resulted in my wife and I turning it off after 15 minutes.

    "Not as good as the other Anna Pigeon books"
    What does Cindy Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Cindy Williams did a good job but Barbara Rosenblat is Anna Pigeon for me and it is not as good with another voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes. It might be better as a movie because listening to it I felt that I never really could get my bearings on this island.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not enjoy this book as much as the other Anna Pigen books which is possibly because the others I have listened to were unabridged and this one was abridged. I just never really got into the story.

    "Avoid this abridged cliff note"

    Terrible performance to go with a train wrecked abridged version. Last abridged book I will listen to. Story is rated 1 star because most of the story is missing.
