Nevada Barr creates scenes so powerful you can almost feel the intense heat and smell the billowing smoke. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat brings out the nail-biting suspense as Anna searches for the killer within the small band of survivors.
"Anna Pigeon, Barr's down-to-earth heroine, is a delight, with her no-nonsense approach to crime solving and her commonsense approach to life....Top-flight entertainment." (Booklist)

This is my favorite of all her books. Not only does it have a good mystery to be solved,but Nevada Barr takes you right there on the mountain fighting the fire. There were times I could almost smell the smoke. Her ability to take you into the daily life of National Park Ranger Anna Pigeon sets her books apart from other mysteries. I enjoy reading about the beautiful yet perilous settings as well as the inner workings of the Park Service in all of her books. Barbara Rosenblat does a great job as narrator.

Not her best
I have heard a number of Anna Pigeon novels, but found it hard to keep track of the characters in this one. You do get caught up in the intensity of the fire and their suffering, but I couldn't keep the people straight as to who did what, etc. The murder mystery part of the plot isn't as interesting as in her others.
