"Murder on Aconcagua" is the first of the Seven Summit Murder series that I have had the pleasure to read, and if the earlier novels are anything like this, I'll be picking them up in due course. The storyline is engrossing and reads quickly. It is written exclusively from the point of view of the hero, Scott Devlon, who is a mountaineer and ex-Ranger, put in the situations in the mountains by the US Defense Intelligence Agency. During the adventures in the mountains, as Scott attempts to learn more details of his mission and how to best accomplish it, intrigue and suspicions build between the various members of the climbing party. There are a number of reasons various people might want to kill some (or all) of the others in the party, but it isn't borne out until near the end of the book.Read more ›
Readers will learn of the climbing experience itself, seeing both the dangers and the exhilaration in accomplishing a major physically challenging feat...especially in the winter! Other than the professionals who hosted the climb, Scott Devlon was the only other experienced climber and he had also been brought into a surveillance job during the trip. At least Scott had been on this mountain before and had some knowledge; however, climbing during this time of the year was a lot more dangerous. Would he have tried it if there wasn't another reason for him to be there?
In fact, Devlon wasn't sure that there was anybody here who were climbing just for the pure adventure of it!
Because Aconcagua was known to be haunted...
And legend claimed that there were still descendants of the Incas when they had been driven from their home by the Spanish invaders. It was also said that there was much gold, and idols that could give great power and prosperity. But nobody knew where this city was--it was considered a "sacred place..."
But many people also lived near Aconcagua and had traveled in the area...and with the right amount of money were willing to sell anything! It was known that a number of powerful men were seeking the idols, but who was there on behalf of those political giants and who was there to steal and artifacts?Read more ›
