Product Details


“Suspenseful, atmospheric [and] pulse-pounding…Hunting Season ranks right up there with the best in this excellent series.”—Chicago Tribune


“The plot takes some surprising twists [but] the real strength of Hunting Season, and this series, is its delightful protagonist. A widowed woman in her 40s, she is absolutely believable—alternately irritated, feisty, insecure, grouchy and charming.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer


“An engrossing and deftly written thriller…[Nevada Barr] provides us with a backstage view of our national park system that is both fictionally exciting and factually enlightening.”—San Diego Union-Tribune


“Will keep readers guessing until the last page.”—The Denver Post


“Thoroughly enjoyable.”—The Seattle Times


“The edgy, fast-paced tale generates plenty of tension…and Barr does a good job of developing the character of Anna, adding romance to the mix and giving the ranger plenty of opportunity to display her slightly dark, off-center wit.”—Booklist (starred review)

“First-rate…Barr outshines most other authors in the mystery genre.”—Publishers Weekly

“In Hunting Season, [Barr’s] descriptions are so vivid a reader almost feels the leaves on the forest floor cracking beneath her feet and the misty fogs soaking into her pores.”—The Memphis Commercial Appeal

“A good, exciting read. [Barr] has a deft touch with suspense, and her fiction has a solid feel.”—The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC)


“[Shows] the beauty of Barr’s writing about nature along the Trace and her development of Anna’s increasingly complex personality.”—St. Paul Pioneer Press


“Even fans who thought they’d already seen enough of Natchez Trace will find Barr’s tenth as inventive, as ingenious, and finally as riveting as the very best of this distinguished series.”—Kirkus Reviews


“Fortunately for her readers, Barr takes full advantage of the surroundings, writing ingeniously plotted mysteries set in exotic locales…interesting characters…some truly terrifying scenes.”—Capital Times (Madison, WI)


“The remarkable Nevada Barr offers another beautifully nuanced and hard-to-put-down tale…There truly is no finer writer in the realm today, and her descriptive prose in observance of the natural world is always stunning.”—Pages


“Park ranger Anna Pigeon is back on the Natchez Trace [with] poachers, grave robbers, a romance and, of course, a murder…The slightly spooky goings-on give the tale a pleasant chill, and Barr keeps the story’s intensity high until the edge-of-your-seat conclusion. Along with her trademark elucidation of the wonders of nature, she never fails to illuminate human nature as well.”—Rocky Mountain News
