A Superior Death

Barr, Nevada
Ranger Anna Pigeon investigates a murder in Lake Superior. Duh. A really good book. I figured out what the plunder was about thirty pages before Anna. Of course, I didn't have all her distractions! Again, I really like her books. You learn a lot about the park system and nature. I wanted to be a forest ranger when I was a kid.

QUOTE:

"With the fading of the light the guardians of the island began to reclaim her shores. A persistent whining burned in Anna's ear. A stinging itch cut through the thin fabric of her shirt. Again she missed the desert. There if something bit, one usually died of it. She hated this nickel and diming to death, one bloody sip at a time."

Burn

Barr, Nevada
Anna goes to New Orleans to recover from her latest ordeals, find child-prostitution to foil. Some pretty disturbing scenes, and very little park stuff. And no map!

Words I Had To Look Up:

avidity (pg. 114) -- Ardent desire or craving; eagerness.

Quote:

Scars on the outside simply kept score; it was the scars on the inside one had to watch out for. (pg. 63)

Under certain circumstances crime could be considered a career choice. Littering was just a character flaw. (pg. 227)

Library Quote:

Not for the first time, she was glad she never went anywhere without her library card...She made a mental note to suggest to the Estes Park librarian that the cards be made with at least one good slashing edge. (pgs. 170-171)
