Praise for Robin Spano's Death's Last Run
"Death's Last Run is breezy entertainment, and Clare is a heroine
fun-loving enough to spend some time with."
"Spano's prose is witty and stylish. Her mystery is complex,
multi-layered, and chock full of suspects and misdirects ... while the
book's mood and tone are generally light, the story has its fair share
of edges, offering not only a shockingly deep and thought-provoking
commentary on U.S. drug policy, but a scathing take-down of U.S.
electoral politics, as well.... 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."
"Death's Last Run by Robin Spano isn't your standard mystery novel...
Spano capitalizes on the element of surprise like few authors, and she
somehow manages to do it in a way that doesn't seem cheap or flashy or
unearned. Buy this book, buckle up, and enjoy the rollercoaster of a
"In Spano's engaging third Clare Vengel Undercover novel (after 2011's
Death Plays Poker), FBI agent Claire poses as amateur skier Lucy Lipton
in Whistler, British Columbia, while investigating the suspicious death
of New York Senator Martha Westlake's daughter, Alexandra "Sacha"
Westlake... Spano weaves what could have been a far-fetched plot into a
believable tale of estrangement, love, lust, greed, power, and revenge."
"Death's Last Run is a wildly fun, adrenalin-fueled ride.... Usually when
I'm reading a novel, my mind is busy working out metaphors, imagery,
ideology, thematic preoccupations, and political leanings. While I was
reading this book, my mind held one thought:
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I can't remember the last time I
found such unadulterated pleasure between the pages."

"Death's Last Run is Clare Vengel's most exciting adventure yet! Don't
be fooled by Clare's sassy, irreverent attitude as she goes undercover
on the slopes of Whistler. Underneath Clare's hip-chick exterior lies a
perceptive thinker who grapples with deeper questions than whether or
not she likes craft beer better than Budweiser, or if she'll be able to
keep some of her snowboarder wardrobe after her assignment. The suspense
in Death's Last Run draws you right in, but Clare's ventures into the
terrain park of her own shortcomings really make this book shine."
