Leaving her spouse behind at home working, National Park Ranger Anna Pigeon is visiting a friend Geneva in New Orleans. Anna is taken aback when someone places a hex on her using a dead pigeon with arcane etchings on it. She assumes Geneva's tenant Jordan is behind the dark magic attempt, but though he is a peculiar unfriendly sort, she has done nothing to him to warrant such a spell.

Not one to lay back having solved many homicides and other crime mysteries at the parks around the country, Anna investigates who tried to hex her and why, and to learn more about Jordon. As she navigates the dark mumbo jumbo urban jungle of the Big Easy, Anna refuses to be anyone's pigeon though she was not expecting a mundane murder to occur rather than mumbo jumbo mojo magic.

Taking Anna out of the National Park scenes of homicides in every park adds a freshness to her investigations as she is a fish out of water, especially having her hexed in New Orleans. Fast-paced as always, fans will enjoy Anna working the urban jungle rather than the parks as her inqury spins out of control. Neveda Barr is at her sparkling best with this enthralling whodunit.

Long time Nevada Barr Reader is Disappointed

I usually love Nevada Barr/Anna Pigeon, but this book really was lacking for me. I like Outdoors/National Park Anna, not Urban Anna. The whole situation was just contrived and the subject matter was very disturbing to read. Put her back in the outdoors and national park...
I usually love Nevada Barr/Anna Pigeon, but this book really was lacking for me. I like Outdoors/National Park Anna, not Urban Anna. The whole situation was just contrived and the subject matter was very disturbing to read. Put her back in the outdoors and national parks so she can be the character we've come to love.

    Highly Recommended

    This was a excellent story. It took me a little while to get into it, as she cut the characters stories into two different stories and then merged them together. But, it is a must read! I couldn't put it down!
