Staff Reviews

Hard Truth is set in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Anna’s life is changing with a new post as
District Ranger and a new marriage to Sheriff Paul Davidson. Three little girls
go missing from a religious retreat.  Two
turn up in the camp of Heath Jarrod, a woman paralyzed in a climbing accident
and struggling with her situation.  Heath
is accompanied by her aunt (a physician) and her dog.  The little girls are so traumatized they are
unable to give a coherent account of their travails or an indication of the
fate of the third missing child.  Hard Truth is a more
serious mystery, delving into the darkness of the human soul and the bleakness
of religious cults.  All of Nevada Barr’s
Anna Pigeon series use their National Park settings to take the reader to
places of wonder and beauty.  Anna is a
strong female lead, flawed but striving to do right even when it is both
difficult and dangerous.

— Deon Stonehouse


Just days after marrying Sheriff Paul Davidson, Anna Pigeon moves to Colorado to assume her new post as district ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park.

When two of three children who'd gone missing from a religious retreat reappear, Anna's investigation brings her face-to-face with a paranoid sect--and with a villain so evil, he'll make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end.
