A young snowboarder turns up dead on the Blackcomb Glacier. The local police are calling it suicide, but the victim’s mother, a U.S. senator, is not convinced. At the senator’s request, the FBI sends in undercover agent Clare Vengel to infiltrate the world of ski bums and snow bunnies and find out what happened to Sacha. Clare soon discovers that not only was the victim involved in an LSD smuggling ring, but also the uncooperative top cop in town is in cahoots with the smugglers. With her cover dangerously close to being blown Clare must solve the case before she finds herself in the deep freeze permanently.

“Robin Spano doesn’t pull any punches with Death’s Last Run; the book’s not only charming, it’s got swagger. Buy yourself a copy, and then strap on a helmet, because Death’s Last Run is a twisty, turny, mogul-filled ride from start to thrilling finish.” —Katrina Niidas Holm, Crimespree Magazine
“Death's Last Run is a joy ride dominated by the personality of the irrepressible Clare Vengel. Robin Spano has created a hell of plot that is populated by a wonderful cast of characters, and then dropped Clare into the middle of it all. She is a tough girl to get away from and to get out of your head - she is smart, gutsy and unconventional, but it is her touch of vulnerability that keeps you worrying about her well-being, and keeps you turning the pages.” —Ian Hamilton, author Ava Lee novels
“Death’s Last Run is breezy entertainment, and Clare is a heroine fun-loving enough to spend some time with.” —Sarah Weinman, National Post
