Blind Descent (Anna Pigeon Mysteries, #6

Blind Descent (Anna Pigeon Mysteries, #6)Blind Descent by Nevada Barr

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blind Descent is a wonderful title for this Nevada Barr mystery. From the moment claustrophobic Anna Pigeon goes down into the cave to answer the request of her trapped friend, the book is tense with suspense. Why does her friend, who knows she is claustrophobic, want her to go down into the cave? There must be a reason and Anna is alert for clues that are only too present, but equally mystifying.

I am not claustrophobic, but I found myself feeling the same fears as Anna. Barr is so good at creating a scene and the emotions that surround it. As all her books take place in National Parks, I am learning as much about them as being entertained by the mystery. Will Anna be able to hold it together and help her friend out of the cave? Who is it that her friend fears? Who is behind the mysterious coincidences? Who is determined that this rescue will be a failure?
