Description
It is January, and Park Ranger Anna Pigeon is sent to Isle Royale in Lake Superior to learn about managing and understanding wolves, as her home base of Rocky Mountain National Park might soon have its own pack of the magnificent, much- maligned animals. She's lodging in the island's bunkhouse with the famed wolf study team, along with two scientists from Homeland Security, who are assessing the study with an eye to opening the park in the winters - an act that would effectively bring an end to the fifty-year project - so that the area can be manned to secure the scrap of border with Canada. Soon after Anna's arrival, the wolf packs under observation begin to behave in peculiar ways. Giant wolf prints are found, and Anna spies the form of a great wolf from a surveillance plane. The discovery of wolf scat containing alien DNA leads the group to believe that perhaps a wolf/dog hybrid has been introduced to the island. When a female member of the team is savaged, Anna is convinced she is being stalked, and what was once a beautiful, idyllic refuge becomes a place of unnatural occurrences and danger beyond the ordinary. Alone on an island without electricity or running water, with temperatures hovering around zero both day and night, Anna fights not only for the wolves but for her own survival as well

        February 25, 2008
        In bestseller Barr's chilling 14th mystery thriller to feature National Park Service ranger Anna Pigeon (after 2005's Hard Truth
        ), Anna joins the team of Winter Study, a research project intended to study the wolves and moose of Michigan's Isle Royale National Park, the setting for 1994's A Superior Death
        . Complicating the study is Bob Menechinn, an untrustworthy Homeland Security officer assigned to shadow the research. Crowded into inhospitable lodgings and persecuted by unrelenting cold, Anna is far from her comfort zone as nature turns awry with a series of bizarre events. The team stumbles upon the tracks—and the mutilated victim—of a preternaturally large, unidentified beast, and local packs of wolves descend on human-populated areas, a behavior out of step with their species. The campfire legends of youth metastasize into adult fears as Anna must piece together a connection between these anomalies while guarding herself from the strangers around her. Barr's visceral descriptions of the winter cold nicely complement the paranoia that follows the appearance of the mythic monsters at play. Author tour.

      • content: Barbara Rosenblat delivers a smashing performance of this suspense novel filled with strong characters and the stark beauty of Isle Royale in Lake Superior. Rosenblat finds voices for the various scientists and their aides, as well as for the heroine of the series, Anna Pigeon, park ranger. Rosenblat expresses the emotional eloquence of the characters without neglecting the ever-building tension when a team member is mauled to death by wolves and a scientist disappears in what looks like a kidnapping. The story is fast-paced and action-packed. Listeners will enjoy armchair (or car seat) trekking. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

        July 15, 2008
        In this 14th Anna Pigeon book, Isle Royale on Lake Superior is the scene of murder, but in the winter, when only the wolf research team and a delegate from Homeland Security inhabit the lonely outpost. As with any sequel, Barr (Hard Truth) raises the stakes with threats to her characters, especially Anna, not just from the cold but from one another, as virtually everyone is a suspect. Anna may be more superhuman than usual here as the climactic face-off occurs with Barr's descriptions embracing the terror to its fullest effect. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat is exemplary yet again, capturing the tension and menace as well as the fear. The series isn't suffering from Anna's aging or her marriage. This New York Times best seller is highly recommended.Joyce Kessel, Villa Maria Coll., Buffalo, NY
