Deep South (Anna Pigeon Mysteries, Book 8) Anna Pigeon encounters terrible secrets in the heart of the south...
Relocated to Mississippi, Anna Pigeon encounters one of her most troubling cases yet in Deep South, the eighth novel in Nevada Barr's acclaimed crime series. Perfect for fans of Sue Grafton and Janet Evanovich.
'A nifty thriller... Barr's one heckuva writer... Her tales read like Patricia Cornwell exploring the great outdoors' - Jackson Clarion-Ledger
Anna Pigeon finally gives in to her bureaucratic clock - and signs on for a promotion. Next thing she knows, she's knee-deep in mud and Mississippi. Not exactly what she had in mind. Almost immediately, as the new district ranger on the Natchez Trace, Anna discovers the body of a young prom queen near a country cemetery, a sheet around her head, a noose around her neck. It's a bizarre twist on a best-forgotten past of frightening racial undertones. As fast as the ever-encroaching kudzu vines of the region, the roots of this story run deep - and threaten to suffocate anyone in the way, including Anna...
