Songs had reserved for the UP left me no time to visit Isle Royale the island national park a sixour ferry ride from Houghton so when I returned to Ohio I decided to extend my vacation mentally by reading A Superior Death a Nevada Barr mystery in which Ranger Anna Pigeon solves a murder while stationed on the Isle I got the park atmosphere I was looking for and an enjoyable mystery too I guessed the solution to the murder about thirty pages before Anna did just about right for my taste learned a lot of interesting things about the day to day activities of park rangers and found the last third of the book very suspenseful filled with exciting accounts of deep diving and dangerous boat battles Since I m not really a nature buff and I didn t fall in love with Anna I may not read another book in the series but I liked this one and would recommend it particularly to my nature loving friends This author sets Histologie her murder mysteries in national parks like Yosemite This
