ABANDONED ON EVEREST ("AOE") is a prequel-cum-companion book to MURDER ON EVEREST ("MOE"). Purportedly, AOE is written by the fictional author Quentin Stern, a tabloid journalist turned blogger-novelist, and it details the story of the "doomed Sodoc expedition" to conquer Everest, during which famed adventurer, and son of one of the world's richest men, Derek Sodoc, dies. Allegedly, Derek Sodoc is climbing Everest with his friends/crew, filming the event for his adventure television series (plot elements here are VERY similar to the movie "Vertical Limit" with Chris O'Donnell). The attempt fails, and Derek Sodoc dies and his body is left on Everest. AOE raises numerous questions as to whether Sodoc was willfully abandoned or worse, murdered on the sides of the famous peak. In essence, this is a locked-room mystery with a number of suspects, the most prominent of which is Sodoc's widow, Tarja. AOE has its own website (...) (don't bother, it's just a promo site) as does MOE (...) . In AOE, we meet all the usual suspects, all painted very dark and devious with the faux tabloid journalist's brushstrokes.Read more ›
I settled on 3 stars to divide my enjoyment of the story with my disappointment with the writing. I can even forgive the camp 5 references and attribute them to literary license. One of the authors, Charles Irion, owns the publishing company that produced this book so I'm not surprised that it didn't undergo typical publishing editing.
But, as I enjoy the subject matter I will try another in this series and hope some improvements were made.
Reading `Murder on Everest' is about as close as you will get to experiencing it - and with an extra treat of a murder mystery to boot.
Charles Irion is a climber and he let's you feel the experience of scaling the world's highest mountain with all its chilling dangers as he weaves a murder plot with multiple plot lines that keeps you tuning page after to page.
So put on your hiking boots, lean back in your sleeping bag and take an exciting journey up Mt. Everest.
