OK, this is not great literature, but it’s entertaining. Flashback is the latest in the series of mysteries featuring National Park Service ranger Anna Pigeon. In each book she is at a different national park, so the books are a fun way to learn more about our national parks while you read a fun mystery. This one takes place at Dry Tortugas National Park, which is in the Florida Keys. It’s a pre-Civil War era fort. Anna finds out that her great great aunt lived at the fort after the Civil War, when some of the Lincoln conspirators were housed at the prison there. Barr weaves the story of Anna’s current life together with the history of her relatives there in the past, so you get two mysteries in one. A fun summer read! Take it to the beach or the lake with you.
