The Broom of God
by John Bragg
A brutal murder in a remote basecamp on the edge of the Patagonian icecap. Todd Miller, elite alpinist, is found with an ice-axe buried in his back. Inspector Juan Antonio Paz is sent from Santiago to investigate. Patagonia: a land of myth, of soaring granite towers, tremendous glaciers, immense lakes, of rugged beauty and hidden cruelty, and a wind so strong it is called the Broom of God.
