Detailed Product Description
London, MacMillan, 1992. 189 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. New.

Murder mystery set in New Mexico. Exploring a remote canyon in the wilds of New Mexico Melinda Pink comes upon a rifle and recent human remains in an old cave dwelling. Someone in the area must be waiting for a body to be found, so Miss Pink alerts the small community of Regis and the police, only to find that no one is missing. There was a recent suicide when the lovely but disturbed Veronica walked into the river and a Mexican ranch hand made a discreet departure after the autopsy showed she was pregnant - but that could have nothing to do with Miss Pink's grisly discovery. Or could it?

Miss Pink is intrigued, especially as she knows that rural America can be a dangerous -and unforgiving place. And soon she exposes dark secrets and darker suspicions: drugs, an old cabin haunted by snakes and memories of clandestine meetings, brothel-keeping, the English maid who nursed the wife and married the widower ... As she continues her investigations Miss Pink makes connections here, is stonewalled there; a twelve-year-old disappears, but apparently of her own volition, and keeps running, even from people determined to protect her. So what or who - is she running from? A sensational storm is the setting for a third death and the body is borne away on the flood waters of the Rio Grande, just like Veronica. The end is quiet and terrible, and culminates in Miss Pink's entry into that circle of women, Veronica's sisters, to join them in a conspiracy of silence . .

"In Veronica's Sisters the indomitable Melinda Pink is in New Mexico. Moffat conveys tangibly the all-consuming heat, the strange geological features, the menace of rattlesnakes and flash floods which on the one hand weld the community together and, on the other, foster eccentricities and aversions. Far from being an extraneous element, the physical setting virtually creates the criminals and the crimes. This book is irresistible." -Financial Times
