In Ill Wind, Barr's powerful new novel, Park Ranger Anna Pigeon
confronts death among the ruins. Colorado's Mesa Verde National
Park is noted for its well-preserved cliff dwellings, the sole
legacy of the Anasazi civilization, which vanished without any
other trace in the twelfth century. Separated from friends and
family and haunted by personal demons, Anna finds solace in these
quiet ruins, their pinon-scented turrets and towers backlit by the
fading blue of distant mountain ranges. But the rugged beauty of
the park and the mystery of the Anasazi are cruelly overshadowed by
danger and death. An unusually high number of medical rescues and
the unexpected death of an asthmatic child are followed by the
sudden demise of a fellow ranger who is found neatly curled up in
one of the ancient kivas, his hat and shoes at his side. Anna had
thought she'd found a friend in this man, had seen him as a kindred
spirit, but his death transforms him into an enigma. Puzzled and
more deeply wounded than she'd ever dare admit, Anna immerses
herself in the ensuing investigation. As she sifts through shifting
loyalties and struggles to honor the past, she must face forces
both seen and unseen which threaten her career - and her very life.
