Detailed Product Description
2012, 1st edition. 239 pp. Fiction. Hero Scott Devlon is once again sent by the US Defense Intelligence Agency on another climbing expedition. This time the mountain is Aconcagua, the highest in South America. His mission is to confirm a report that three Inca golden idols have been discovered and are headed to Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chavez. Legend says he who possesses them is invincible.
 
Scott’s assignment is to prevent that from taking place but he quickly learns that there are those who will stop at nothing, including murder, to get their hands on the idols. This book is the fifth in the exciting Summit Murder Mystery series. While each book stands alone each will provide a deeper connection with the characters and story lines. Every book is set against an exotic backdrop amidst some of the most breathtaking scenery on earth. Be sure to read all seven of the Summit Murder Mysteries: Murder on Everest, Murder on Elbrus, Murder on Mt. McKinley, Murder on Puncak Jaya, Murder on Aconcagua, Murder on Vinson Massif, Murder on Kilimanjaro.
 
Who will be murdered? How? And why? The answers will astound you. New paperback.

There is a point on each of the world’s seven continents higher than any other. Remote, often highly inaccessible, they are the crown jewels of climbing. Among these seven are the world’s deadliest mountains. On Everest alone more than 200 bodies lay near the summit where they fell, unrecovered and unburied. Deaths from falls, avalanches, illness, heart attacks and high altitude sickness are a part of each climbing season atop these mountains. Every climber goes by choice, knowing the danger. To climb all seven of these mountains is considered one of the greatest athletic achievements attainable.

The Summit Murder Mystery series was inspired by the 1987 Everest attempt by co-author Charles G. Irion. Each is an exciting murder mystery set against the climb of one of the Seven Summits. The authors invite you to begin your adventure today with Murder on Everest. Unlike any mystery ever previously written, you will actually feel yourself atop Everest in the midst of a violent blizzard. You’ll read what it’s like to climb with one-third the usual oxygen, to fight illness and fatigue. You will experience the thrill of the climb, the terror of every step in the Death Zone.
