Description

Award-winning novelist Nevada Barr sends her remarkable sleuth, Ranger Anna Pigeon, to spectacular national parks to solve baffling crimes. In Liberty Falling, Anna leaves the rugged countryside of Colorado to face the concrete wilds of New York City. As soon as she hears her older sister is gravely ill, Anna rushes to the Big Apple to sit at her bedside. Between hospital visits, she relaxes at the park service quarters on Liberty Island and explores the crumbling ruins of Ellis Island where thousands of immigrants once were processed. Rest escapes her, however, when a teenage girl mysteriously plunges to her death from the Statue of Liberty—and Anna herself suffers a dangerous tumble. The Park Service claims the falls could only be accidents, but Anna wonders if there is a common purpose behind them. Nevada Barr's vivid descriptions and narrator Barbara Rosenblat's dramatic performance transport you to New York City to share in all the danger and the excitement.

        March 1, 1999
        Tenacious park ranger Anna Pigeon leaves the country wilderness for the wilds of New York City, where her sister Molly is hospitalized, in this seventh installment of Barr's popular series (Blind Descent, etc.). Although Anna is on leave, she gets involved in the investigation of two murders. An unidentified child falls to her death from the Statue of Liberty. The main suspect dies. Anna is attacked. An actress is fatally bludgeoned on Ellis Island. Anna's conviction that these events are connected leads to a cross-country search for a right-wing fanatic. As expected with Barr, the narrative teems with memorable characters-among them Charlie DeLeo, the caretaker of the Statue of Liberty's torch, and Anna's former lover, FBI Agent Frederick Stanton, now smitten with Molly. Though Barr ties up the many subplots in an action-packed finale, the mystery is slow to develop and there's little doubt that Molly will recover. Barr's atmospherics remain potent, however. Her evocation of the isolated, exotic nature of the two famous tourist attractions is a particular treat, bringing home how nature is inexorably reclaiming buildings and records a stone's throw from bustling Manhattan. Mystery Guild main selection; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates.

As usual, when Anna arrives, havoc follows. Rosenblat keeps the reader in the middle of that havoc, with all of its excitement, terror and pain. A lover of author Barr or narrator Rosenblat will be very pleased with this production; a lover of both will be enthralled. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine

        February 15, 2000
        Park ranger Anna Pigeon heads east to New York City to be with her dangerously ill sister. She bunks with a Park Service buddy at Liberty Island, where the majestic statue and the abandoned buildings of Ellis Island are a backdrop to a series of unexplained and tragic events. Anna's intense curiosity and her sympathy for the victims lead her to investigate two untimely deaths of "jumpers" and bring her to the attention of unsavory villains. As her sister slowly recovers, Anna makes peace with an old boyfriend, soon to be her brother-in-law, and puts together the disparate clues that bring her to the violent climax. Barbara Rosenblat is comfortable with the role of Anna, and her interpretations of the other characters is equally flawless. Expect an interesting look at our favorite monument, a puzzling mystery, and an accomplished reader. Recommended.--Juleigh Muirhead Clark, John D. Rockefeller Jr. Lib., Williamsburg, VA
