Publisher's summary

Nevada Barr brings National Park Ranger Anna Pigeon to the wild beauty of Acadia National Park in the New York Times bestseller, Boar Island.

Anna Pigeon, in her career as a National Park Service ranger, has had to deal with all manner of crimes and misdemeanors, but cyberbullying and stalking are new ones. The target is Elizabeth, the adopted teenage daughter of her friend, Heath Jarrod. Elizabeth is driven to despair by the disgusting rumors spreading online and bullying texts. Until one day Heath finds her daughter, Elizabeth, in the midst of an unsuccessful suicide attempt. And then she calls in the cavalry - her aunt Gwen and her friend, Anna Pigeon.

While they try to deal with the fragile state of affairs - and find the person behind the harassment - the three adults decide the best thing to do is to remove Elizabeth from the situation. Since Anna is about to start her new post as acting chief ranger at Acadia National Park in Maine, the three will join her and stay at a house on the cliff of a small island near the park - Boar Island. But the move east doesn't solve the problem. The stalker has followed them. And Heath (a paraplegic) and Elizabeth aren't alone on the otherwise deserted island. At the same time, Anna has barely arrived at Acadia before a brutal murder is committed by a killer uncomfortably close to her.

Boar Island is a brilliant intertwining of past and present, of victims and killers, in a compelling audiobook that could come only from Nevada Barr.

Fair story made poor by tease

Wow, I have never wondered through the whole series if I made a mistake buying a book by Nevada Barr. Now I have. Cliches pop out when a novel is poorly read. The reader made the beginning sound like a breathless mockery. The end was just poor. Maybe I'll have to try reading this in print to see if it really was so poorly characterized.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

Very entertaining

Neither Nevada in her writing nor Barbara in her performance disappoint. Go Anna Pigeon! Wonderful to see how old characters are doing. 😎
