Hard Truth by Nevada Barr
Hard Truth is the latest entry in Barr's Anna Pigeon mystery series. Pigeon, a park ranger, seems to find murder and mayhem in every national park to which she is assigned. This time it's Rocky Mountain National Park, and the crime is three little girls who are missing and presumed dead.
I've long been a fan of the character of Anna Pigeon, and found myself vaguely disappointed that Barr used another protagonist throughout much of the novel. The story was well written and intense, but not as fast paced or "Pigeon-esque" as her past novels.
Anna still rocks, though. :-)
If you haven't read this series before, I highly recommend it. My favorites are A Superior Death, Hunting Season, and Firestorm.
