Publisher's Summary

Accomplished storyteller Nevada Barr captivates fans with her tightly-woven plots, vibrant descriptions, and believable characters. In this thrilling mystery, her resourceful sleuth, middle-aged park ranger Anna Pigeon, travels to northern California where she joins the forces battling an out-of-control forest fire.

Ever since a fire began raging through Lassen Volcanic National Park, Anna has been acting as medic and security officer for the spike camp firefighters. As the blaze dwindles and the camp demobilizes, she stays behind with a small crew to rescue an injured man. Suddenly a thunderstorm whips the remaining embers into a deadly firestorm. After the inferno passes, Anna discovers a crew member didn't make it, but a knife, not the fire, killed him.

Nevada Barr creates scenes so powerful you can almost feel the intense heat and smell the billowing smoke. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat brings out the nail-biting suspense as Anna searches for the killer within the small band of survivors.

What the Critics Say

"While Anna, with her compassion, toughness, and abundant one-liners, calls Kinsey Milhone to mind, Barr's character is a true original. And for excitement, her line of work can't be beat". (Publishers Weekly)
"Anna Pigeon, Barr's down-to-earth heroine, is a delight, with her no-nonsense approach to crime solving and her commonsense approach to life....Top-flight entertainment." (Booklist)

    "Firestorm (unabridged)"

    This is my favorite of all her books. Not only does it have a good mystery to be solved,but Nevada Barr takes you right there on the mountain fighting the fire. There were times I could almost smell the smoke. Her ability to take you into the daily life of National Park Ranger Anna Pigeon sets her books apart from other mysteries. I enjoy reading about the beautiful yet perilous settings as well as the inner workings of the Park Service in all of her books. Barbara Rosenblat does a great job as narrator.

    "Not her best"

    I have heard a number of Anna Pigeon novels, but found it hard to keep track of the characters in this one. You do get caught up in the intensity of the fire and their suffering, but I couldn't keep the people straight as to who did what, etc. The murder mystery part of the plot isn't as interesting as in her others.
