I love the Anna Pigeon lady park ranger mystery series but this book her most recent was seriously disturbing Less about the natural surroundings and history than the other previous books this one delves deep into the psyche of a killer that also twists the minds of young girls he s kidnapped from a small conservative religious enclave This book will mess with your head I was open mouthed in horror by the end Not the normal Barr mystery so reader beware

She held the flashlight backward and the light blasted her retinas Startled she dropped it Found it Pointed it in the right direction Holy shit she whisperedThen the screaming began Hard Truth 2005 another National Parks series mystery by Nevada Barr is the weakest of the five installments I have read so far In fact I actively dislike the ending of the novel badly written and simply in bad taste Until about page 235 out of 320 it seems an interesting and worthwhile addition to the series The story is located in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado where Anna Pigeon is now employed as a district ranger But then towards the end of the story the writing dissolves into pornography of violenceThree young girls have gone missing in Rocky Mountains National Park six weeks ago and the intense search has not yielded any results But now a paraplegic climber handicamping in the park with her aunt comes across two girls disheveled and covered in mud feces and blood The girls are incommunicative and in a state of shock When the parents members of a conservative Christian sect are notified instead of being extremely happy they all lawyer up and prohibit their daughters from being tested for rape and uestioned by psychologists or police Ms Pigeon is having difficulties in fulfilling her law enforcement duties finding the third girl because the parents suspect the involvement of Satan The whole affair acuires a different flavor when Ms Pigeon finds evidence that someone has been torturing animals The possibility of a brutal series killer cannot be excluded eitherThe absurdly prolonged ending with its barrage of gratuitous violence and brutality overwhelms the reader It is not just that the scenes of mental and physical torture are excessive but they are also badly written In High Country Ms Barr wrote great captivating scenes of a prolonged ferocious duel between a good person and a bad one Here the passages depicting brutality are simultaneously disgusting and ridiculous For instance a character repeatedly stabbed with a knife and just about to die is glad about the cordovan colored socks they are wearing as they do not show how much blood is being lost because of their color Cringeworthy and embarrassing for this usually competent author I also wish Ms Barr wrote about the Rocky Mountain National Park which my wife and I visited just a year ago our thirty second National Park The author does know how to write about nature which she proved in other books in the series Instead of just mentioning the names such as Sprague Lake Loomis Lake or Deer Mountain I would love to read about these wonderful places with similar skill as the author has exhibited beforeI will probably look for National Park series mysteries by Ms Barr but I am unable to recommend this oneTwo stars

So why do I read Nevada Barr She writes these little whodunit murder mysteries set in National Parks that are mostly fun little reads As a former NPS employee she captures the park service culture very well which adds to the amusement because that is one of the cultures I live in She is also famous for thinly veiling some of her characters so when she writes about a park you ve worked in it is always fun to try to guess who some of the characters are The ironic thing is that the most evil person I have ever known in the NPS or at least the one I have the least respect for she painted like a rose Personally I think he paid her a bonus check to do that There s no other logical explanation That was not this book howeverAnd why I am getting tired of Nevada Barr She also hates men or appears to so most men in the books with the exception of Anna s lovers and the one exception above are painted pretty badly That can get grating after several novels I enjoyed her earliest books the most and they ve tended to get annoying as you go along with this one being the worst yet The topic is awful and she claims some of the characters used to be Mormon although they are clearly a spin off from Fundamentalists instead but she clearly doesn t know the difference It s also clear she doesn t know anything about Mormons and did not get anyone to review those sections for believability She claims one character got a Master s in liturigical music at BYU I had to look that up and then worked in a temple for a couple years after college as if that was his job And her portrayal of the women was even worse but I don t know much about Fundamentalists than she does and I assume that s what she was really trying to describe under the wrong name Granted people can leave the church for any reason and make any choices at any time but there should be enough resemblance to make it credible and she failed miserably on this one
