Although I love all of Anna Pigeon's adventures in the various national parks, this one was close to my heart because of the Texas setting. The story is exciting, with as many twists and turns as the Rio Grande itself. The only bone I have to pick with Nevada Barr is her lack of research into how Child Protective Services in Texas is set up. The glaring errors in terminology and how the agency works was VERY distracting to me since I actually work for CPS in Texas! But overall, this book on CD definitely kept me entertained as I traveled (across Texas, no less!)and made my trip much more enjoyable.

This was one of the best Anna Pigeon stories. It wasn't as gory as some and it showed a softer side of Anna. This one I had trouble putting down. Great setting, brought in some current political issues without forcing an opinion and interesting charachters

"Our heroine", Anna Pigeon has developed over the years as she moves from one national park to another. The plot device of her annual moves strikes a slightly unbelievable note, but it sure allows the writer to incorporate the scenery into the action. I would like to visit most of these parks someday instead of just experiencing them vicariously. I will NEVER go white-water rafting (too chicken) and this is the next-best thing. Throwing in murder and general mayhem and the rescue of an emaciated cow makes for an exciting read. Nevada Barr was once a park ranger herself, and uses this first-hand knowledge of the system to provide an authentic framework for her novels.

I have read all of the Anna Pigeon series and this one is not one of her best. I would have liked the background of the the characters other than Anna developed a bit more. I always like the settings of the books and learning about National Parks and I couldn't get the feel for this Park because the main characters weren't as connected to the Park or at least they didn't seem to be. It was worth the read however and I always enjoy a good story.

I always look forward to a new Navada Barr and another encounter with Ranger Anna Pigeon. In her latest offering, "Borderline," I was disappointed. The book is set on the border between the United States and Mexico and brings together Pigeon, her too-good-to-be-true husband, a too-psychotic-to-be-true politician, her too-old-to-be-so-besotted bodyguard and several other characters in a plot that is so outre as to be "offbeat" but not in a good way. Oh yeah, there is also a baby whose birth leads Pigeon to discover a maternal instinct just when she needs her killer instinct most. And I almost forgot the college students who should have gone to Cancun for spring break rather than on a white water rafting trip with Pigeon and her husband. The book raised interesting points about life along the border with Mexico, and the descriptions of the scenery and of the physical suffering of Pigeon and the other characters were, as usual, stunning and excruciating, repectively. This book, however, was not up to Barr's usual standards.

Nevada Barr returns with another exciting Anna Pigeon mystery. This book was compelling from beginning to end and was less graphic than the previous four books in the series. The premise was interesting, if not original. The writing was tight and kept me turning pages late into the night. I hope she keeps writing more like this one because it was a great escape. Definitely worth your time to read it if you like a well-written story that hooks you from the first page.

I've become disenchanted with Anna. She has always been incredibly selfish; in this book, she also adds stupid and crazy.

I keep hoping there are still more to come.

While this is the darkest story about Anna Pigeon I have read, it was still a really good read. It is about time Anna showed the kind of emotional and psychological weaknesses that normal people would experience after close brushes with death. In the previous books, she was robotic in her ho-hum attitude after taking a life or having come so close to death. I like it. Anna is human after all. Stephanie Clanahan

Anna was presented as always - strong willed, resourceful and cunning, when needed. The addition of infant care shows a side of Anna not seen in her previous adventures. Not a great book but a fun entertaining read.
