Burn by Nevada Barr
I LOVE Nevada Barr’s Anna Pigeon Novels. LOVE THEM. Her novel set in Glacier NP was one of the 1st mysteries I ever read, and liked. I have since read them all and love the adventure, the National Park setting and the fact that they are largely non-romantic.
This one however, fell short. It fell very short. It reminded me too much of Barr’s stand alone novel 13 1/2. The “character switch” technique she used in Bittersweet, 13 1/2 and now Burn has gotten old, I’m not as wowed by it. Also the subject matter, child prostitution, was just disturbing. And, the story line seemed totally implausible.
