Four young people, all seasonal park employees, have disappeared, and two weeks of work by crack search-and-rescue teams have failed to turn up a single clue- investigators are unsure as to whether the four went AWOL for reasons of their own - or died in the park. Needing an out-of-park ranger to work undercover, Anna is detailed to dining-room duty- but after a week of waiting tables, she knows the missing employees are only the first indications of a sickness threatening the park.Her twenty-something roommates give up their party-girl ways and panic- her new restaurant colleagues regard her with suspicion and fear. But when Anna�s life is threatened and her temporary supervisor turns a deaf ear, she follows the scent of evil, taking a solo hike up a snowy trial to the high country, seeking answers. What waits for her is a nightmare of death and greed - and perhaps her final adventure.Barr�s trademark pleasures [are] evocative natural descriptions, mounting suspense, and Anna Pigeon�s never-say-die spirit.- Kirkus Reviews
