August 2010 Indie Next List

“Nevada Barr has established Anna Pigeon as one of the premier characters in crime fiction. Even on leave from the National Park Service, Anna is unable to avoid trouble as she encounters Clare Sullivan, a wanted murderer with a compelling story. The two combine Anna's passion and persistence and Clare's acting ability to track down a group abducting children. Written with Barr's usual verve and precision to natural detail, this is a worthy addition to the saga of Anna.”
— Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI


Anna Pigeon is on leave from her job after a traumatic past couple of months. It seems like the perfect time to pay a visit to her old colleague Geneva, a blind blues singer who performs at New Orleans' Jazz National Historical Park. But Anna isn't in town long before she crosses paths with Geneva's neighbor, Jordan, who gives her the creeps. Then Anna discovers a gruesomely killed pigeon marked with runic symbols. Is this a dark coincidence--or has she been cursed?

Now it will take all of Anna's skills learned in the untamed outdoors to navigate the post-Katrina urban jungle in which she finds herself. Tied up in all of this evil magic are the gutter punk Jordan; Clare, a fugitive mother accused of killing her family in a fire; and faint whispers of unpleasant goings-on in the heart of the slowly recovering city...
