Charles Irion and Ronald Watkins are wordsmiths extraordinaire! Abandoned on Everest was an exciting preguel to Murder on Everest. As the story continues, more characters are introduced and the excitement builds to frenzy after frenzy, people literally dropping like flies, along with the temperatures. Bundle up in front of the fire and prepare yourself for an adventure you are not soon to forget. Can't wait for the next book in the series. This is the stuff that Book Clubs live for.

I love murder mysteries in general but I never have read one about a murder on Mt. Everest. Who would have thought to murder someone on Mt. Everest. How original!---It was well written and full of great information about climbing.

I love reading about Mt. Everest and those who climb it. I was excited to find this fictional story set on the mountain that wasn't of the young adult variety. The only other novel I had previously found was Jeffrey Archer's Path's of Glory about George Mallory. But while the story is interesting, the writing is poor. Other reviewers have remarked about the inaccuracies in the book (ie camp 5 on the south col route - I've never seen a reference to it in any modern account of the climb). The book was littered with typos and at least one issue with continuity. As the expedition trekked toward base camp, at one point the author says that they left all life behind, no longer any settlements or teahouses. Then on the next page they come upon a village. ???
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.

I found this book to actually be a great read! It wasn't anything like I expected. There is plenty of suspense and drama and the writing is nicely detailed without going overboard. The characters were interesting and it kept my interest all through the book. The author seemed very knowledgeable of mountain climbing. I actually understood what he was trying to explain.
Overall a great read, but not one I would read over and over again. I think it is because it is not my usual type of book though, not because it wasn't well written. A great story to capture your interest all the way until the end!

Format: Paperback
Collaborative written by the team of Charles G. Irion and Ronald L. Watkins, "Murder On Everest" begins with the death of Derek Sodoc on the slopes of Mt. Everest. The question arises as to whether the son of a wealthy and powerful man was accidental -- or intentional. A riveting mystery replete with sex and betrayal, "Murder On Everest" is highly recommended reading is the first of Irion and Watkins' proposed "Summit Murder Series" of murder mysteries, each of which will take place on one of the world's highest mountains on the seven continents.

Photogenic murder mystery with enough twists to keep you guessing. Mt Everest is really the main character, and you feel like you are on the mountain. Good character development for a book of this sort. I will read the next book in this series.

Format: Paperback
This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I am a lover of mysteries and this one hit me from all angles. The descriptions of the experiences from the preparation to the summit made me feel as if I were there on the expedition. The characters are well thought out and I am sure you will find that you know a few people like these - the opportunist, the snob, the overachiever.... all make the book that much more exciting. I didn't know anything about climbing until reading this book but felt every ache, pain and the overall physical agony of the climb. The book is as much about adventure as it is about murder. Can't wait to read the other books in the series as I am hoping that some of the characters return.

Ever wonder what it feels like to climb the highest mountain in the world?

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.
