"In this episode of Nevada Barr's popular series, Park Ranger Anna Pigeon has been promoted and reassigned from Mesa Verde, Colorado, to the Natchez Trace National Park in Mississippi. As is par for Anna's course, murder occurs almost immediately upon her arrival. Anna must also deal with disgruntled staff and alligator attacks. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat turns in the virtuoso performance that listeners have come to expect. She distinctly renders the Deep South accents of whites and blacks; men and women; old, middle-aged, and juveniles. However, frequent and audible intakes of breath before sentences are annoying.
