I have read all of the previous Anna Pigeon book so far and found this one to be the best yet- by far. The novel transions back and forth in time to tell two separate tales, both linked to Fort Jefferson as well as the main character. Anna herself behaves in a much more mature and responsible way in this story and, as a result is both more realistic and more likeable. The plot flowed well and easily held my interest- much more so than in previous books. I am really happy that I stuck with tjis series. It is starting to get really good. Stephanie Clanahan

Could barely put this down to live my own life. I am from Florida so particularly enjoyed the historical aspect of the book as I learned more about my home state. I found Fort Jefferson on the Internet and viewed every photo to better understand the descriptions of the fort.

I have read all of the Anna Pigeon novels - twice. This is my least favorite. It has all of the elements I love about Ms. Barr's novels: beautiful descriptions, action, mystery. It still manages to drag along. I was bored and impatient both times I read it.

Very intriguing as you travel back to Lincoln's assassination plotters and the current NPS investigation of intrigue. Loved both tales and couldn't wait to get back to one when reading the other. I really enjoyed this novel, as I enjoy both period and current adventure thrillers(especially with these characters, highlighted by Anna Pigeon). Hard to put down and certainly one of a kind in this Nevada Barr series. Strongly recommend!

I like this book very much. Your reading two mysteries in one both combined in the ending. In several places there is strong language used, a few deaths but not described in gory detail. It does allude to a rape but it only says, 'he defiled her.' Thankfully there are no sex scenes. All in all I believe most mystery readers will enjoy it.

After reading this great book, which in a way is two books in one, I declare myself a fan of Nevada Barr. Never have I encountered a novel which so artfully develops characters and mystery both in the present and in the past. The reader is drawn into three love affairs; first with the intrepid hero Anna, then with her dear aunt Raffia and the foolish Tilly, and finally with Jefferson Cay and the Dry Tortugas. Being unable to actually visit the first two, I intend to visit the third at the first opportunity. And, I plan to acquire every Nevada Barr book I can. I am going to place her on a very short list with Earnest Hemingway, Tom Clancy, WEB Griffin, and James Michener. Yes, she is undoubtedly one of my favorite authors. 'Flashback' is a must-red. Like Hemingway, I sense there is a little of Nevada Barr in her character. This is OK with me.

I have read several of the books in the Anna Pigeon series, and this one was not one of my favorites. There were two seperate mysteries, and the one with Anna lacked depth. The historical storyline was okay, bit repetitive in parts, but okay. Describing the fort was hard, just could not get a clear picture of the area despite a map. Was hoping that a story in the Keys of Florida would be more descriptive, the diving, the beaches, the reefs and cool fish ... I like this series, have enjoyed several of the books, this one just did not do it for me.

This was like reading 2 books simultaneously. Both stories would have been great alone, but writing every other chapter about the same story made for difficult reading.

I have read all of the Nevada Barr Anna Pigeon books and must say that this ranks as one of her best. I felt that the last couple of books were rather strained, but here she shows her 'best stuff'. A couple of unique plot twists aide the storyline quite nicely. Her details of the various national parks that come out in her books make for good nature lessons as well as good story settings. I hope that there will be many, many more 'Pigeons' to read.

Versatile voice performer Joyce Bean gives eloquent and exciting reading to the latest from New York Times best selling author Nevada Barr. "Flashback" is the eleventh in Barr's highly popular mystery series featuring Park Ranger Anna Pigeon. With a marriage proposal from Sheriff Paul Davidson still ringing in her ears Anna escapes by signing on as a temporary supervisory ranger on Garden Key in Dry Tortugas National Park. This is the site of Fort Jefferson, a Union prison during the Civil War. Anna's predecessor fell victim to some mind altering experiences in this area and was quickly dispatched to a safe haven. Anna finds equally challenging threats as her life is repeatedly jeopardized. Barr skillfully weaves two stories - the contemporary predicament of Anna and that of a supposed Lincoln assassination plot. Spellbinding listening!

Forty eight hours after receiving a proposal from Sheriff Paul Davidson in Natchez, Mississippi, Anna accepts a temporary posting as a temporary Supervisory Ranger in the National Parks Service. Her assignment is for eight to twelve weeks in the Dry Tortugas National Park on Gardenn Key, as far south as one can go and still remain in the United States. On the surface, the place seems like paradise but there is an evil undercurrent running beneath the surface that Anna taps into. Anna¿s predecessor has gone insane and is currently undergoing treatment. His girlfriend Theresa mysteriously vanishes but what really arouses Anna¿s suspicion is the mysterious boat that explodes, killing two people with one of the victims wearing a smuggler¿s tattoo. Anna believes somebody is putting a drug in her bottled water. When she finally figures out what is going on, Anna has to act fast to prevent a massacre from occurring. Nevada Barr intertwines the story of Anna¿s ancestors who lived on Tortugas right after the Civil War with what is happening to the heroine in the present day. Both stories are fascinating and keeps the reader¿s attention until the last page is turned. Anna has been in some very dangerous situations but this is her best adventure to date. It just doesn¿t get any better than FLASHBACK. Harriet Klausner
