Detailed Product Description
New York, 1976, 1st US edition. 192 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine to Fine. 

[Neate X261.] 
A detective story and climbing adventure set in the mountain range of the Scottish islands of Cuillin of Skye. From the outset, the group has its distractions, such as jealous husbands, jealous wives, a womanizer, and a very attractive girl of sixteen, who acts as if she's much older. Miss Melinda Pink must solve two murders, each of which is ingeniously camouflaged, and with plenty of available suspects.

Thriller set in an imaginary valley near the Cuillin mountains in Skye.

A professional mountain guide, Moffat wrote a series of thrillers featuring her heroine Miss Pink, against various mountain backgrounds. 
 
At the little hotel in Glen Shira, in the Cuillin of Skye mountains, professional guides and dedicated climbers gather - among them Melinda Pink, J.P., an amateur detective. And from the outset it's a dangerously fragile gathering. One of the guides, in his forties, is growing
soft and careless, and moreover, he's a womaniser. Another guide is a startlingly attractive woman, who hardly bothers to conceal her affair with her client, though his non-climbing wife is going almost insane with jealousy.
 
The hotel owner, known derisively as 'the Colonel', is savagely resentful of the permissive society and the way the world is going. And the flashpoint is provided by a ravishingly pretty young girl who arrives, incongruously, in a big floppy hat, halter top, jeans and flip-flops. Miss Pink has two murders to contend with, each ingeniously camouflaged, and to reach the solution takes all her climbing expertise and her understanding of what makes people tick.
