The Far Horizon

(1982)
(A book in the Mike Faraday series)
A novel by

 
In his 36th exciting adventure, MIKE FARADAY, the laconic L. A. private eye, is commissioned by 80-year-old recluse millionaire Adrian Zangwill to investigate death- threat notes he has received for half a million dollars.
Mike and his blonde secretary, Stella find a bizarre set-up on Zangwill's melancholy estate, where the millionaire's dead wife is interred in a white marble sepulchre by the lake and the lethal guard-dog, Satan, patrols.
In the heavy rain which continues throughout, Mike is soon at grips with one of the most baffling problems of his career. Shots are fired as mystery intruders try to gain admittance to the electronically guarded grounds; Mike's life is threatened and a blackmailer is incinerated when Vietnam war jelly-bombs are hurled through a bungalow window.
There is a sinister, brooding mystery at the heart of the millionaire's problems and a 40-year-old death is finally explained in a gripping vault finale. One of Mike's best.
The adventures of Mike Faraday have appeared throughout the Commonwealth and in Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Germany, France, Norway, Portugal and Spain.
