Death in High Places (Bello)
Two friends stand at the foot of the glacier, looking up to Anarchy Ridge. They can't see the summit of the mountain, only its heaving shoulders, the snow whipping off of the thin blade of the ridge, making arabesques against the impossibly blue sky. As they stand in awe for a long time, gazing up at the seeming impossibility of their trek, the mountain awaits in silence.
But one of the friends is destined never to return from the ridge alive. As for the survivor, Nicky Horn, that terrible day on the mountain plunges him into a life of deception. His climbing partner's father is seeking vengeance for the death of his son, and Horn must run for his life through a maze of intrigue and secrets.
"guarantees an experience as hair-raising for readers as for the three leading (and practically only) characters" Kirkus Reviews
