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.

A new series of books by Charles G. Irion and Ronald Watkins (the Summit Murder Series, planned for 7 books) has been pushed out with the premier volumes - ABANDONED ON EVEREST (Irion Books November 15, 2009) and MURDER ON EVEREST (Irion Books November 15, 2009) being set up as the initial entrants in this series. I've shown brief synopses, with review[s] afterward, for both these books, as to review them separately would be to make it impossible to do justice to either; I apologize for the length of this post, but to explain it in context takes a little doing. The premise is as follows:

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.

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.

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.

I hadn't expected much when I began this read, having not heard of the author nor knowing anything about the series. It's few books I finish in a single sitting, but Murder on Everest was one of them. I found it to be a gripping story and, contrary to one of the other reviews here, I feel the interruptions to the narrative for historical or cultural context made the story all that much better. The detailed research presented was fascinating and incredibly well done. I, for one, look forward to reading the entire series. This book is one fine argument for the talent and quality readers can find in the self-published book market.

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.
