Anna Pigeon's first case?this is the story her fans have been clamoring for...this is where it all starts.
In The Rope, the latest in Nevada Barr's bestselling novels featuring Anna Pigeon, Nevada Barr gathers together the many strings of Anna's past and finally reveals the story that her many fans have been long asking for. In 1995 and 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 Recreational 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 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 those who are new to Nevada Barr's captivating, compelling novels, this is where it all starts.
From the Back Cover:
"ANOTHER AWESOME WINNER FOR BARR...
[Anna Pigeon's] legion of loyal fans can find out how her story began."
It's 1995. Fresh off the bus from New York City, a broken-hearted 35-year-old named Anna Pigeon takes her first job as a park employee: a decidedly unglamorous, seasonal stint at the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. On her day off, she goes hiking alone in the park?never to return. Her co-workers assume she's moved on since her cabin is cleaned out. But when Anna wakes up?trapped at the bottom of a well, naked, with no supplies and no memory of how she got there?she must draw upon all of her strength, courage, and skill to survive. Because whoever set Anna's trap isn't through with her yet...
"EXCITING...takes readers where they've wanted to go for years?to Anna's beginnings as a park ranger....Misdirection and a rising body count ratchet up the tension."?Publishers Weekly
