About Jerold Last

The author is a Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of California's Medical School at Davis, near Sacramento in Northern California. Jerry writes “tweener” mystery books (hard boiled stories that follow the cozy conventions of no graphic sex and no cussing) that are fast moving and entertain the reader, while introducing the readers to a region where he has lived and worked that is a long way from home for most English speakers. He and his wife lived previously in Salta, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay for several months each. Jerry selected the most interesting South American locations he found for Roger and Suzanne to visit while solving miscellaneous murders. Montevideo, Salta, Machu Picchu, the Galapagos Islands, and Iguazu Falls are also characters in these books, and the novels portray these places as vivid and real. Jerry and his wife Elaine breed prize-winning German Shorthaired Pointer dogs; Elaine also provides technical advice for Jerry’s novels like The Deadly Dog Show and editing for all of the books, many available from Amazon.

I really enjoyed both the murder investigation and learning about Argentina and Argentine alpaca breeding. The investigation was very well done and had lots of info on cultural differences in law enforcement as well as detailed opportunities for learning about alpaca husbandry and details about a particular firearm and its modification. I was totally absorbed by the opportunities for learning and the plot twists! Caveat: I am a knitting addict as well as addicted to Andrea Camilleri and his ilk.
