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."
