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?

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.

Not Barbara Rosenblat, But Borowitz Does Well

What made the experience of listening to Bones on Ice the most enjoyable?

Novella was fun because I usually listen or read her novels, and it was a joy to listen through it quickly.

What did you like best about this story?

It followed the same pace and formula as the novels, but a microwave version.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Well, I'm a HUGE Barbara Rosenblat voice over fan, so I'm very biased. Katherine Borowitz did a good job once I got used to her voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Exactly the roller coaster I wanted and expected! In cute little niblet form!
