BURN Anna Pigeon, a Ranger with the National Park Service, is on administrative leave from her job as she recovers from the traumas of the past couple of months – while the physical wounds have healed, the emotional ones are still healing. Now Nevada Barr finally tells the previously untold story of Anna’s first foray into the wild, and the case that helped shape her into the ranger she became. Thirty-five years old, fresh off the bus from New York City, and nursing a shattered heart, Anna Pigeon takes a decidedly unglamorous job as a seasonal employee of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area.

I used to love the Anna Pigeon series and have read every single one. I have worked in (as a Visitor Protection Ranger) and/or visited many of the parks where they are set. I get that Ms Barr wanted to show the events that made Anna become who she did, to show her raw and vulnerable.

Anna Pigeon, a Ranger with the National Park Service, is on administrative leave from her job as she recovers from the traumas of the past couple of months – while the physical wounds have healed, the emotional ones are still healing. With her new husband busy and back at work, Anna decides to go to stay with an old friend from the Park Service, Geneva, who works as a singer at the New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park. Anna isn’t in town long before she crosses paths with a tenant of Geneva’s, a creepy guy named Jordan. She discovers what seems to be an attempt to place a curse on her – a gruesomely killed pigeon marked with runic symbols – and begins slowly to find traces of very dark doings in the heart of post-Katrina New Orleans. Tied up in all of this evil magic are Jordan, who is not at all what he appears to be; a fugitive mother accused of killing her husband and daughters in a fire; and faint whispers of unpleasant goings-on in the heart of the slowly recovering city. Now it will take all of Anna’s skills learned in the untamed outdoors to navigate the urban jungle in which she finds herself, to uncover the threads that connect these seemingly disparate people, and to rescue the most vulnerable of creatures from the most savage of animals.

I started Reading Nevada Barr, Anna Pigeon books back in February. I started with one and have read through Burn #16. I have loved the books. I love National Parks and enjoy reading about them. I relate to Anna Pigeon on a million different levels. I like the outdoors and enjoy solitude. Nevada Barr uses a rich vocabulary. Her descriptions of different landscapes and people are detailed and insightful. Anna gets herself into a little more trouble than seems feasible but she always scraps her way out. This is the one area I do not think I am like Anna. Not sure that I could fight that hard or be that physical. I probably would have died off in the first book. But it is fiction and I find myself turning the pages to find out how she gets out and am often satisfied with some kind of good ending.
Book 13 (Hard Truth) and Book 16 (Burn) deal with a human condition which I have no experience with and I am grateful for that. I recognize that these conditions exist in the world at large and may be closer to home than I think. I do watch the news and read the newspaper daily so I know some of it to be true. I also do not watch Law & Order: Special Victims Unit because I cannot take it emotionally. I worry that a segment of the population may read or watch this stuff because they find it enjoyable. If the purpose of this writing is to bring awareness to certain causes or to raise money for organizations that work to stop these behaviors, one might be able to justify it. It could be that I should not stick my head in the sand and try to pretend these things do not exist.
I have purchased book 17 and 18 and am looking forward to reading them. I am taking a break and reading another author and then back to Nevada Barr and Anna Pigeon. I should have written on the books I really enjoyed but was more motivated to wonder about how book 13 and 16 came to be. I cannot come up with a good reason. If I had been aware, I would have skipped these two.

I read this book shortly after it was published, and this was after I had looked at the reviewer ratings. There are always bad reviews on every book, but this book seemed to have a higher ratio of bad reviews than normal. I even considered skipping this book, but I have always been a fan of the Anna Pigeon series, so I decided to risk the purchase.
I don't thoroughly enjoy every book I read, but even the ones that make me wonder why I bothered at all get the same treatment; all the books I purchase to read get donated to my local library. Except for this book. This book was the first book--in my life--that I have ever thrown into the trash can. All those disgusting images stayed in my brain a long time, but they finally did recede. The only people who should ever have to dwell on images such as these are the law enforcement officers who make it their mission to wipe out these types of indecencies; this should not be reading material for entertainment.

I usually look forward to reading Nevada Barr books but this one was a real disappointment. While her books would never be described as "fast paced", this clunker dragged on and on. I thought the final "scene" (which was totally unbelievable) would never end. I figured out where the book was heading very early on without even trying, and this is something that I never do. Seems like every character was either a complete hero or a total villain (mostly the latter.) On top of that, too many coincidences drove the plot. I get that The French Quarter isn't a big area, but running into the same person five or six different times in different locations really stretches credulity.

I haven't given up on Anna Pigeon yet, but I really regret buying this book. So far, the only one in the series that I will NOT be reading again.

This is my first Nevada Barr novel and it will also be my last. Judging from many of these reviews, Ranger Anna Pigeon is an interesting character and some of the earlier novels dealing with this character's exploits are well worth reading. Well, I'll never know because reading this latest installment left me feeling disappointed at the way the author used a controversial and abhorrent topic as the main theme in her novel, i.e. the sexual exploitation of minors (read = very young children). With real-life horrors and abuses of children making headlines daily around the world, why do we need to read about it in a fictionalized account, and one which I felt was not even handled very well.

Pigeon is on leave from her ranger duties and chooses to lie low in New Orleans. She rents a place from her friend, blind singer Geneva and inadvertently stumbles into a crime mystery involving the sexual exploitation of children by a pedophile ring. There are two main plots in this novel which gradually merges into one - the first involves a former actress Clare who finds herself in a heap of trouble after her husband and children are supposedly murdered in a fire at their home in Seattle. Clare becomes the main suspect in the case, but she realizes that there is some conspiracy involved and that her children might possibly be alive. She goes on the run from the law and uses her acting skills to go undercover in order to discover the whereabouts of her children. The second plot is centered in New Orleans, where Anna Pigeon for want of something better to do, gets herself tangled up in a mystery which involves a sinister guy, Jordan. Anna is determined to discover what Jordan is up to, especially after she spies him stalking a young girl.

The story drags in places, and it takes too long to get to the point. The graphic descriptions of abuse just made me recoil in horror and though I finished the story, I felt like this was a total waste of time and a drain on my energy. This is one of those novels that begs the question: Could the author not have picked some other topic to write about, especially since this is a work of fiction? There are many non-fiction works on victims/ survivors of sexual abuse which actually inspire and give hope for the future. This book just makes you feel the total opposite.
