The laws of nature take a terrifying murderous turn in this spellbinding addition to the bestselling series featuring Park Ranger Anna Pigeon. Anna returns to the West, where she is sent on a training assignment to study the grizzly bears in Waterton/Glacier National Peace Park. But back in her beloved mountains, Anna fails to find the spiritual renewal she expected. Instead, nature seems to have become twisted, carrying a malevolence almost human in its focus.

Along with bear researcher Joan Rand and a volatile and unpredictable teenaged boy, Anna hikes the backcountry seeking signs of the bears. Soon, the boy is missing and a camper is dead, her neck snapped by a single blow, the flesh of her face cut away with a knife. Feeling betrayed by both nature and humanity, Anna must find the beast stalking the trails -- leading her readers deep into a gripping wilderness life-or-death mystery.

Anna Pigeon leaves her ranger post in the deep south for a chance to study grizzly bears in Waterton/Glacier National Peace Park. Almost immediately, she becomes involved in a bear attack, a search and rescue mission, and a murder investigation. Anna works against time to solve the crime with few leads and more than one suspect. She is desperate to find a connection between the few pieces of information but afraid that whoever killed Carolyn Van Slyke has already left the park. Nevada Barr weaves the beauty of the mountains and the majesty of grizzlies into this suspenseful novel. Blood Lure is the natural choice for any fan of Nevada Barr.
