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.

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.

Probably My Last Anna Pigeon Book

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not really. This is my 4th Anna Pigeon book and likely my last. Anna seems to be getting less intelligent with every year of her life and every difficult situation. She still does things like going for walks in the dark with murder suspects and and pushing people so far that I'm not even upset when something bad happens to her.

Would you be willing to try another book from Nevada Barr? Why or why not?

Maybe. The first two books in the series were great, and the writing is still excellent, but if Anna doesn't start getting smarter, I'm done.

Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

Maybe Joan.

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.

Implausible but endearingly entertaining

Another well spun whodunit tale in a richly detailed geography of glacier national park land.
