THE FIRST ANNA PIGEON NOVEL--WINNER OF THE AGATHA AWARD.

The fascinating hero of Nevada Barr's award-winning series--park ranger Anna Pigeon--has brought an unyielding love of nature and sense of fair play to the mystery genre. Track of the Cat is the acclaimed novel that first introduced readers to Anna, as a woman looking for peace in the wilderness--and finding murder instead...

Patrolling the remote West Texas backcountry, Anna's first job as a national park ranger is marred by violence she thought she had left behind: the brutal death of a fellow ranger. When the cause of death is chalked up to a mountain lion attack, Anna's rage knows no bounds. It's up to her to save the protected cats from the politics and prejudices of the locals--and prove the kill was the work of a species far less rare...

Anna Pidgeon is a really tough woman. She discovers the body of a fellow park ranger being eaten by vultures. That vivid description almost turned me off the book right there; but my daughter had enjoyed several of Nevada Barr's books and encouraged me to stick with it. I'm glad I did. She is a troubled heroine, but strong; and her chats with her sister, a psychiatrist, reveal her character and help her make her way through many obstacles, both with her inner troubles and the harsh landscape. Barr's descriptions of the park bring it to life. I don't think I would survive there for five minutes; but Anna prepares and survives. She also tracks down the killers of people who are thought to have died by accident. Their comeuppance is breathtaking.

This has been my favorite Nevada Barr so far. A female ranger up there in the mountains tracking, and all alone. Great story.

As the first book in the series, you can tell Anna hasnt been fully developed as a character. Many of the side characters feel extremely artificial and the ending feels disjointed from the rest of the book. Try a different Anna Pigeon novel first, you wont miss much.
