Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Nevada Barr finally reveals the story that her fans have been clamoring for: Anna Pigeon's first case.

In 1995—35 years old, fresh off the bus from New York City, and nursing a broken heart—Anna Pigeon takes a decidedly unglamorous job as a seasonal employee of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. On her day off, Anna goes hiking into the park never to return. Her co-workers think she's simply moved on; her cabin is cleaned out and her things are gone. But Anna herself wakes up, trapped at the bottom of a dry natural well, naked, without supplies and no clear memory of how she found herself in this situation.

As she slowly pieces together her memory, it soon becomes clear that someone has trapped her there, in an inescapable prison, and no one knows that she is even missing. Plunged into a landscape and a plot she is unfit and untrained to handle, Anna Pigeon must muster the courage, determination and will to live that she didn't even know she still possessed to survive, outwit and triumph.

For those legions of readers who have been entranced over the years by Park Ranger Anna Pigeon's strength and determination, and for those who are new to Nevada Barr's captivating, compelling series, The Rope is where it all starts.

Outstanding

Interesting view into the psyche of Anna Pigeon. There is obviously still more to the story, as it should be. Bet you want to reread the first story again!

Exquisitely Intricate

A tightly coiled series of events that overlap into an amazing breath holding finale. Anna Pigeon rises up, in this story of her first NPS job as a seasonal interpreter, from her prior loss and gains a sense of self and physical strength.

Wonderful descriptions of wrenching experiences that would have broken most people, but not Anna.

Thanks for the words, Nevada Barr.

The Rope

Nevada Barr’s The Rope was a dud for me. It had too much of the book based on human waste found in national parks from irresponsible campers to a story line where a woman takes clothing from a murdered girl. Also the primary character is a mentally disturbed young woman with no respect for herself. Based on this disgusting story line that plods like a horse stuck in the mud..... I am not likely to read another Nevada Barr book ever.
