Publisher's Summary

2015 Readers Choice Award Winner in Paranomal Fiction
In 1989 Karl Blaine and his wife Fiona traveled to Nepal to climb Mt. Everest with their college friend Zachary. Only Zachary came back alive. Two decades later, in 2009, a French climbing expedition discovers Karl's frozen remains. Of the five man party who finds Karl, only the Sherpa guide makes it down alive. He brings with him a whooper of a ghost story no one can believe.
When a much older Zachary is notified of this discovery, it sets off a dangerous chain of events that puts Zachary and Karl and Fiona's son, Derrick, on a collision course. What did Karl have in his possession when he disappeared? What really happened in 89? Can what the Sherpa guide reported really be true? And one other question.... Is Fiona Blaine still entombed at the top of the world?

A mixed review, unfortunately

Any additional comments?

Look, I actually really enjoyed this story. All of the main characters are well defined, have good back stories and contribute to the overall flow. The concept of encountering the supernatural on Mt Everest was a good one, and I didn't know where it would end.

The plot twisted and turned enough to keep me interested and it has a cool ending that I wasn't really expecting.

Thank goodness, though, that the narrator told you which character each chapter was about. As per other reviews, there was no audible way of determining who each character was via voice tone etc, so you definitely needed the context from the chapter title.

I haven't listened to/read a book written in multiple first person before and so, if you are not a fan of this, this book might frustrate you.

However, C F Waller does another good job with this book, albeit the narration let's it down.

I would like to thank the author and publisher for providing me this book via audiobook boom dotcom in exchange for an impartial review.

Voice of a robot

This probably would have been a good book if the narrator had a personality. But every character had the same hum drum voice. You didn't know if the character was male or female. And when he/she was being hit on in a bar by a man makes you wonder where this book was going. In sorry but I couldn't get into the story because of this. So my review is based on the narrator not the story.
I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.
