I enjoyed my five dayfour night trip to Michigan but the two nights I had reserved for the UP left me no time to visit Isle Royale the island national park a six hour ferry ride from Houghton so when I returned to Ohio I decided to extend my vacation mentally by reading A Superior Death a Nevada Barr mystery in which Ranger Anna Pigeon solves a murder while stationed on the Isle I got the park atmosphere I was looking for and an enjoyable mystery too I guessed the solution to the murder about thirty pages before Anna did just about right for my taste learned a lot of interesting things about the day to day activities of park rangers and found the last third of the book very suspenseful filled with exciting accounts of deep diving and dangerous boat battles Since I m not really a nature buff and I didn t fall in love with Anna I may not read another book in the series but I liked this one and would recommend it particularly to my nature loving friends

In September I turned to mysteries as a way to ease my overworked brain A good thing about mysteries is the bad guy or gal gets caught and also gets what is coming to him or her unlike our current morally ambiguous society After reading A Mind to Murder by P D James I picked up Nevada Barr s second novel A Superior Death Early this year when our current President seemed to be overriding the sanctity of the U S National Parks I vowed to read one a month of Nevada Barr s mysteries each set in a different National Park As with other vows I have taken in my life I have been faithless In nine months I have only read oneAnna Pigeon is a park ranger who also fights crime In A Superior Death she has been transferred from the dry heat of the Texas high desert Track of the Cat to the chilly dampness of Lake Superior at Isle Royale National Park She is moping a bit and shivering a lot getting chomped on by mosuitoes and meeting a wide range of eccentric characters when a grotesue underwater murder surfacesA current resident of Isle Royale is found dead in the wreck of an old cargo ship The few clues available do not add up The man had seemingly no enemies and was a partner in a concession that provided boat tours to summer visitors at the park The discovery of his body 260 feet below the chilly surface of the lake coincided with the disappearance of another park ranger s wife a woman with whom he was rud to be romantically entangled Had he made an enemy after allAs I learned in Track of the Cat Anna Pigeon is a fearless and determined woman In this book she is reuired to learn how to dive deep in the freezing waters An annoying FBI agent sent in to assist in the investigation is convinced that the crime stems from drug smuggling A kooky couple new age types believes that the missing wife was eaten cannibal style by her husband If that were not enough a teenage girl seems to be the victim of an adult sexual predatorBarr juggles a large list of characters I wish I had made a list and is forever moving Pigeon around the island into various coves as well as back and forth between different settlements I found a great map online allowing me to track her movements I also learned from my husband who grew up in Michigan that he had gone to Boy Scout camp on the island He is reading the book nowAs the deep dives take their toll as the chilly fogs move in and out a bewildering list of possible suspects grows and danger mounts This was an exciting read full of extreme adventure but also occasional humor I have renewed my vow

Download A Superior Death 100 review ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Õ Nevada Barr Ter murder Anna finds herself 260 feet below the forbidding surface of the lake searching for the connection between a drowned man and an age old cargo ship Written with a naturalist's feel for the wilderness and a keen understanding of characters who thrive in extreme conditions A Superior Death is a passionate atmospheric page turn. Anna Pigeon returns for her second mystery This time she has left the southwest and is now assigned to Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior just north of Michigan s Upper Peninsula It s remote and a very different environment from what she was used to and she s having some trouble adjusting She continues to rely on freuent phone calls to her sister Molly in New York and to the numbing effects of a bottle of wine When a body is found floating within a wreck on the lake bottom Anna has to confront some of her own fears to help recover the victim But it seems this was not an accidental drowning the man was murdered There are plenty of suspects despite the remote location an alcoholic has been with marital problems was jealous of the him the victim s own wife didn t report him missing his boat and business were left to two twin siblings who are not relatives a sleazy park employee who had to leave his previous post uickly has been seen sneaking around and a hippie couple who are being blackmailed may have had enoughBarr writes a decent suspense novel The action moves fast and I was caught up in the mystery There are enough clues to let the reader guess the perpetrator but I was certain only a few pages before Anna herself had figured it out I like that Anna is intelligent strong and resourceful In general she takes matters into her own hands and acts with due caution However the book had several serious editing flaws We re told Anna is a vegetarian several times then she s eating a tuna fish sandwich The name of one of the twins is suddenly changed to that of Anna s sister for 4 or 5 mentions on a single page before being correctly referenced for the balance of the book A key piece of evidence is stolen by one of the suspects and later the authorities are examining it What really made me lower the rating however is an issue with a senior administrator making a joke about having a child escorted by a known pedophile That is just NOT funny and such a comment would I hope get said manager fired But no one even raises an eyebrow in the novel Anna actually smiles I know this was first published in 1994 but really WHAT was Barr and her editor and agent and publisher thinking
