BOAR ISLAND by Nevada Barr
In her 19th adventure, Anna Pigeon has taken over as acting chief ranger at Acadia National Park in Maine, where she must help her friend’s daughter, who is an unfortunate victim of cyber-bullying and stalking. “As in the previous mysteries, a dramatic landscape is a major presence.
