Ill Wind tells that story of Anna Pigeon as she's working at Mesa Verde National Park. While she is working there, the murder of a fellow ranger occurs. Or is it a murder? Few clues are left for Anna and Fred, who comes back to help in this book, to ever figure out this mystery. This along with the blending of truth and lies lead to a twisting tale that never gives up who- or what -did it until the very end. A major theme that keeps reappearing is dealing with loss, as each character gives into their way of coping with the death. The book also had the subtle message to not drink over-excessively, for the characters that did have a harder time than others. What a mainly liked about this book is the mystery behind it all, as it gnaws on your nerves, and makes you want to just keep on reading until you realize that its 12:00 AM and you have to get up and go in less than 6 hours. When the book starts out, you're completely unsure about just what is going to happen, and it builds you up with each of the characters, then tosses you into the story. The only dislikes I would have about this story is at times it is hard to figure out what is going on at the moment, and I would have to reread passages to get really what they meant. A person should read this as it creates a great escape from reality, that's still in reality. It's like all those cop shows that everyone seems to like, yet in book form with a thicker plot line. Other recommended works for people who like murder mysteries would have to be other stories by Nevada Barr, such as A Superior Death and Track of the Cat. For the book as a whole, I'd have to give it a 4/5, as it kept my on the edge of my seat throughout the story and got me really attached to every character.

I happeed to find this in a thrift shop while preparing for a trip to Messa Verde. It was my first encounter with Anna Pidgeon. I enjoy reading books with local color on vacations and I quickly fell in love with Navada and Anna. Since then, I have read almost all of the Navada Barra/ Anna Pidgon stories. I am saving a few for upcomming Nat. Park trips and aleays look foreward to Anna's next adventure. The only drawback, however, is that after reading several of these adventuer mysteries, I've noticed a certain pattern inthe villans - one that annoys me, but which I can forgive in the name of an otherwise good story with that local color I crave. GO ANNA and please keep witing, Navada! Ps. In my travels,I have met several park raangers who remember Navada from her various postings and who speak highly of her work as a ranger and as an author.

Nobody does it like Nevada Barr. Her grasp of nature, adventure and sense of humor combine for a great read. This was a fine mystery that kept Anna Pigeon moving and incorporated a great character (Fred the Fed) from a previous story. The only fault with this book was that some of the female characters were confusing at times. Anna's two roommates for one, and it was hard to distinguish between Patsy and Rose at times. Some of the mystique of Mesa Verde could have been brought out a little more too. Over all is was a good book and a good read.
