Summary:

The laws of nature take a terrifyingly murderous turn in this spellbinding addition to the New York Times bestselling series featuring Park Ranger Anna Pigeon. In Blood Lure, Anna returns to the West, where she is sent on a training assignment to study grizzly bears in Waterton/Glacier National Peace Park, straddling the border between Montana and Canada. But back in her beloved mountains, where the air is pure and cool, Anna fails to find the spiritual renewal she expected. Instead, nature seems to have become twisted, carrying a malevolence almost human in its focus. Along with bear researcher Joan Rand and a volatile and unpredictable teenaged boy, Anna hikes the backcountry, seeking signs of the bears. On their second night out, the tables are turned: one of the beasts comes looking for her. Daybreak finds the boy missing and a camper dead, her neck snapped by a single blow, the flesh of her face cut away with a knife. Feeling betrayed by both nature and humanity, Anna must find the beast stalking the trails - leading her readers deep into a gripping wilderness life-or-death mystery.

    So far, this is my favorite novel of the Anna Pigeon National Park series by Nevada Barr. Contains some graphic and gruesome details of violence and murder. Otherwise a totally enjoyable and gripping, tense murder mystery with the usual, unpredictable plot twists that Barr is so good at. Also contains the usual descriptive beauty of the National Parks that this author and series are well known for. Highly recommend!!
