The first Archer book I read was The Prisoner of Birth, and I was instantly drawn into what for me is one of the best mysteries of all time. So of course when I heard Archer came out with another novel, I bought it on release day, and once again it doesn't disappoint.
Archer has this amazing way of telling a story, he slowly ramps your interest into the characters until you get to the point where your thinking about the book even when your not listening to it. I had never had much interest in climbing but after reading this book I have a whole new appreciation for their art form.
The book as a whole is brilliant, its part love story, part adventure, and a whole lot of twists and turns up until the last words. Although maybe not as earth shattering as The Prisoner of Birth, this book really deserves a look.

I always wonder when I see a One Star rating against a bunch of Four-Five Stars what that person saw that the others did not. In this case it must have been the whole book because this story is terrific.
I'm a big Archer fan and count this among his best. It is a great story with classic characters and larger than life motives. It does have a bit of a 'Goodbye Mr. Chips' feel, but it is consistant with the period and settings.
In the end, I wonder if he made it.
