    Death at the Depths

    National Park Ranger Anna Pigeon has been reassigned to Lake Superior in Michigan. This is quite a change of scenery for her, having spent most of her career in desert settings. Among the shipwrecks in the lake is the Kamloops, a ship that sunk in 1927 with 5 sailors still aboard. Things begin to get interesting when a pair of recreational divers comments that one of the bodies looks so good, it's as if the person died just yesterday. When one of the locals turns up missing, Anna hopes the extra body with the wreck isn't his but unfortunately it is. Now Anna must determine who the killer is and why, not knowing that she could be walking into danger herself.

    A Superior Death by Nevada Barr is the second entry in the popular Anna Pigeon series. This time the action takes place on Lake Superior in Michigan. I believe that part of the success of this series is that Barr periodically implements a change of scenery, which opens up new and fresh plot options. As a Federal employee myself, I can relate to the bureaucracy within which she works. Barr writes in a way that lets us get to know Anna and the assortment of colorful characters she lives and works with. This series is always an enjoyable read and I look forward to catching up on the rest of the series and look forward to hearing more from Anna Pigeon. I can heartily recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery without gore or tedious details.

    great read

    Anna Pigeon...gotta love her. I read #17 (the Rope) first. Turns out is was her "back story". Since then I've read ten in order of publication.

    A Superior adventure ...

    I ordered this book but couldn't buy the next in the series because B&N froze my account. It was a small credit card error (exp date) but the Sales Audit group neither answers its phone, picks up its messages (the box is full) nor responds to emails. So this probably is the last book I will have purchased from this company.

    BTW, I love Nevada Barr and plan to read all of her books. Good thing my library carries all of her books in ePub format.

    Nature at it's best.

    Nevada Barr writes about nature so clearly she is a joy to read. For anyone that has visited Isle Royale, or lived in the lakes region of the north, this book is a must read. Fast read, interesting, with lots of twists.

    Fairly gpod

    I have only moderately enjoyed reading Book 2 in the Anna Pigeon series. While the storyline was good, it could have been much better. I got tired of long-winded descriptions that had absolutely nothing to do with the story and felt that there were too many sub-plots going on that just provided distraction from the main plot. It felt busy and forced. Stephanie Clanahan

    My introduction to Nevada Barr and her Anna Pigeon series was vi

    My introduction to Nevada Barr and her Anna Pigeon series was via audio books, which is an exciting way to enjoy the stories, but I prefer this book format allowing me to easily reread sections to enhance the suspense. The descriptive narrative of nature as well as the "beauty and beast" of man makes for a "heart stopping", don't want it to end series.
