Publisher's Summary

It is called the "death zone": the point on Everest, nearly five miles high, above which a climber cannot be rescued. More than 250 souls have lost their lives there. Most of the bodies remain, abandoned, frozen in place. When an earthquake leads to a miraculous recovery, Dr. Temperance Brennan is hired to identify a frozen, mummified human corpse. The victim is the daughter of a wealthy Charlotte couple who never got the chance to say good-bye. But far from offering solace and closure, Tempe's findings only provoke more questions. What happened on Mount Everest? Was the young woman's death an accident? Why aren't the other climbers talking? And how far will those hiding the truth go to make sure the past stays buried?

Great story with interesting twists.

This story is about an autopsy on young woman's frozen body. She died 3 years earlier while climbing Mount Everest and her body was recently recovered. There is an interesting twist concerning her identity along with other twists.

Kathy Reichs writes better novellas than novels. Her novels are excessively wordy. Narration of this novella is superb.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"


Fans of mountain climbing and fans of INTO THIN AIR, which is mentioned in the book, will like this short story. The book is full of mountain climbing facts and some Southern characters along with their food. It has some twists and was a very pleasant read. I would give the book a B. It didn't have any emotional string pulling in either direction, high or low, it was just a pleasant, simple read.
