Last Chance Country

(1983)
(The seventh book in the Miss Pink series)
A novel by

 
 
Miss Pink, an intrepid and unconventional murder investigator, is on her way to the remote estate of millionaire Jack Nielsen.

She faces a hazardous journey alone, across the empty desert of Death Valley and through formidable mountain passes before reaching an animal sanctuary where pumas, bighorn sheep, eagles, rattlesnakes, and more are impartially protected. However, Miss Pink quickly finds that it's the people who could do with more protection...

Soon she is investigating a couple of very puzzling murders - with all of Nielsen's family and staff as possible suspects. The search for the solution takes her through sandstorm and snowstorm, and up into the mountains twice in pursuit of killers. For an elderly lady who has come to the desert on account of her arthritis, she doesn't do too badly.

Gwen Moffat is an experienced and accomplished mountaineer whose adventures help as research into places described in her mysteries. Her main interests are wilderness areas and the genesis of murder, and all her books have featured one or the other. Moffat has written six travel books and twenty-six novels, including Dying for Love and Private Sins.
