Summary:

Anna Pigeon, in her career as a National Park Service Ranger, has had to deal with all manner of crimes and misdemeanors, but cyber-bullying and stalking is a new one. The target is Elizabeth, the adopted teenage daughter of her friend Heath Jarrod. Elizabeth is driven to despair by the disgusting rumors spreading online and bullying texts. Until, one day, Heath finds her daughter Elizabeth in the midst of an unsuccessful suicide attempt. And then she calls in the cavalry

her aunt Gwen and her friend Anna Pigeon.
While they try to deal with the fragile state of affairs

and find the person behind the harassment

the three adults decide the best thing to do is to remove Elizabeth from the situation. Since Anna is about to start her new post as Acting Chief Ranger at Acadia National Park in Maine, the three will join her and stay at a house on the cliff of a small island near the park, Boar Island.
But the move east doesn't solve the problem. The stalker has followed them east. And Heath (a paraplegic) and Elizabeth aren't alone on the otherwise deserted island. At the same time, Anna has barely arrived at Acadia before a brutal murder is committed by a killer uncomfortably close to her.
BOAR ISLAND is a brilliant intertwining of past and present, of victims and killers, in a compelling audiobook that could only come from Nevada Barr.

    *THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS* Enjoyed but the book ended suddenly. Is there a sequel that will follow up after Diana kidnaps the new born? Or did I not get the full download?

    Always a thrill to find a new Nevada Barr Anna Pigeon novel. This one does not disappoint; the characters are well developed and enjoyable to follow. Anna Pigeon is aging, but has not lost any of her superpowers!
