Rage

(1990)
(Book 11 in the Miss Pink series)
A novel by

 
 
Miss Melinda Pink, gothic writer and mountain climber - and sleuth heroine of Snare and The Stone Hawk - is back on the trail in Rage.

Dorset Press's best-selling travel writer, Timothy Argent, has disappeared while following an old wagon trail across America's West. The last trace of Argent came in the form of a cryptic postcard to his publisher from Gabriel, California - "Romantic Ghost Town of the Wild West."

As she investigates out in the foothills of the magnificent Sierras, Miss Pink discovers Crazy Mule Canyon - complete with a crazy recluse who prefers animals to people, and emphasises his points with a rifle. And it soon becomes clear that Argent seems to have left wreckage in his wake: a beautiful Algerian-English girl disappeared around the time Argent came through the ranch where she lived, and then the carcass of his baby blue jeep turns up.

As usual, bizarre clues and red herrings abound and, if Miss Pink is not careful, she too could fall prey to whatever force lurks out there in the wild...

Gwen Moffat was born in Sussex, England, lived for many years in the American West, and has since returned to England. She was the first woman in England to become a mountaineering guide, and has also worked as a cowhand and a journalist. Her first mystery featuring Miss Pink appeared in Great Britain in 1973.
