It is January 1961 and Margaret Spencer and Nat Southby are relaxing on a ski holiday when their vacation takes a bone-chilling turn. While cross-country skiing the couple comes across the frozen body of Maurice Dubois, a man who went missing from a fishing resort the month before. When Maurice's wife is also found murdered, the two Vancouver detectives are hired by the victims' children to investigate. An energetic hunt begins, as Maggie and Nat find themselves involved in clandestine visits to a clothing factory on East Hastings Street, encounters at horse-breeding stables in Langley, a car chase to Lulu Island and eventually a pilgrimage to the fishing resort at St. Clare's Cove in Pender Harbour.

In Death As a Last Resort , the fourth book in the popular Margaret Spencer Mystery series, our favourite Vancouver female sleuth Maggie Spencer and her partner Nat Southby continue their escapades as they track down the unlawful and dangerous.

I enjoyed reading this PI story set in Vancouver. It is the first book of this series I have read. It's on the light side of the murder mystery genre but the storyline moves along quickly with interest and humour so I never got bored. I'll try another one for sure.

Too much arguing and lying. I lasted half-way through the book, though, because of the Canadian setting and the realistic French inclusions by the Quebecoise character.
