"[An] action-packed debut thriller...Farthing's firsthand knowledge of Everest paints a vivid picture of the majesty of the mountain and also the hellish rigors climbers face in trying to conquer it as background to an exciting story, part-thriller, part-historical novel...Marries [Farthing's] knowledge of world travel, adventure sports, mountaineering, and modern history to create a gripping action story that is both compelling and thought provoking."

-- "Moultrie News"

"A captivating debut novel that combines grand storytelling with a thorough knowledge of climbing. Harry Farthing is a compelling new literary voice."

-- "Susan Sloate, bestselling author of Forward to Camelot"

"A wonderful story that instantly took me back to my Everest days. Many shades of the legends of mountaineering, such as the great Italian Walter Bonatti and, of course, the doyenne of Himalayan record-keeping, Elizabeth Hawley."

-- "Martin Adams, 1996 Everest climber and protagonist of Into Thin Air and The Climb"

"Gripping...Farthing vividly depicts the challenges of mountain climbing."

-- "Midwest Book Review"

"Farthing has done a remarkable job of telling two parallel tales while weaving them together into a single narrative...the author brings it all together for a most-satisfying ending."

-- "Crow River Media"

"Farthing entertains the reader with a taut, suspenseful tale of high anxiety...and conveys a message that we should always be on guard because history repeats itself."

-- "South Carolina Review"

"A book of vividly drawn villains and heroes, but its backbone is the realism of its details about the climbing experience and its fascinating use of kernels of climbing history...the kind of cult novel that gets passed around at base camps."

-- "Aspen Times"

"Even if you have zero interest in alpinism or Nazis, I highly recommend this book. It's very entertaining throughout."

-- "Best Hike"
