Number 13 in the Anna Pigeon series.
Hard Truth, at it's release, was hailed as Nevada's best to date by the critics, and acknowledged by devoted readers to be her scariest. In this adventure, Anna finds herself in a new job -- that of District Ranger in Rocky Mountain's National Park. Paul Davidson, her long-time love, is a thousand miles away. Dropped into the middle of a mystery that has had the park in a state of turmoil for six weeks, she at first thinks it's solved itself...until the voices start ... voices without bodies ... until the small slayings turn into bigger, and even the most obtuse administrator must realize something is desperately wrong in the mountains.
