Duane Rimel, The River Is Cold, Vega, 1962

Actually, this a a pretty good little regional mystery, set along the Snake River in Idaho. As "Rex Weldon," Rimel wrote several not-bad mysteries for Novel Books, also set in the Northwest, starring woodsman/amateur detective Mark Jason. He went on to write tons of hardcore porn under the Weldon by-line, but this one from Vega and the Weldon Novel Books are worth tracking down.

Thanks for the tip, Steve!

The cover art reminds me of George Costanza's plaint, "I was in the pool!"
