    Having read numerous books in Nevada Barr s Anna Pigeon series, I thought it would be fun to backtrack and read one that I d missed number five,Endangered SpeciesI was right it was fun It had been such a long time since I had read anything in this series, so going back to the late 90s version of Anna Pigeon was a treat.In each book of the series, Anna is stationed at a different National Park In this case, she is part of the firefighting crew at Georgia s Cumberland National Park Wit Having read numerous books in Nevada Barr s Anna Pigeon series, I thought it would be fun to backtrack and read one that I d missed number five,Endangered SpeciesI was right it was fun It had been such a long time since I had read anything in this series, so going back to the late 90s version of Anna Pigeon was a treat.In each book of the series, Anna is stationed at a different National Park In this case, she is part of the firefighting crew at Georgia s Cumberland National Park Without much happening in the way of fire activity, whatever will Anna do The book starts out with a description of her assisting a researcher in hauling a female loggerhead turtle to the beach so she can lay her eggs As it turns out, the loggerhead isn t the only creature in this story who is endangered.It just wouldn t be an Anna Pigeon park experience without danger, murder, anddanger When there finally is a fire, it turns out to be the result of a plane crash A private plane has gone down, killing the pilot and his passenger The investigation soon proves it to be sabotage Naturally, Anna has hunches and follows them to the max.When she has down time, she waits in the queue to use the telephone, attempting to contact her two closest loved ones in the outside world Her sister Molly is a psychiatrist in New York Her current significant other, Frederick Stanton, is an FBI agent living in Chicago Anna and Frederick have talked about making their relationshippermanent, but he doesn t do wilderness and she doesn t go much for big city living Hmmm How will this end Then Molly has some death threats and Anna mentions this to Frederick Molly and Frederick meet Will this be just business, or will the lure of the New York sister cause Frederick to fly the coop I loved the characters As a female, Anna was in the minority in a man s world There is plenty of humor here One of my favorites Anna was driving, Rick riding shotgun For the past twenty minutes he d been working himself into a lather over abortion rights Rush Limbaugh and G Gordon Liddy were his much quoted experts on the subject Anna was attempting a Zen like state and failing miserably The heat, the boredom, and Rick were a combination that would have gotten Gandhi s loincloth in a bundle.I also chuckled every time Dijon, who seemed to be the crew s token black man , started to curse because he fell all over himself trying to clean up his language for Anna s sake.All fun aside, there was a double murder to solve, and Anna was quite persistent in that endeavor I had a good idea right from the start, but I had no clue as to the motive She had plenty of help at the end, just in the nick of time too I always knew I enjoyed this series a lot Now I remember why I enjoy visiting the various parks around the country, and it s always an adventure going along with Anna as she gets herself in and out of trouble I think there are a fewbooks that I have missed along the way, so I ll be looking for those in the not too distant future 4 stars

    This was a pretty good story Anna is sent to a National Park off the coast of Georgia for pre fire suppression and instead of a fire, there s a plane crash And the plane was sabotaged.And, as usual, Anna figures out who did it and the culprit tries to kill her Never fails I enjoyed the story Moving on to the next one.

    Another good book in the Anna Pigeon series This time she s in Cumberland Island There were many layers to this and just enough characters to where it got hard to keep them all straight Good story and an exciting ending.
