A thrilling tale of high-altitude death and survival set on the snowy summits of Mount Everest, from the bestselling author of The Terror
It's 1924 and the race to summit the world's highest mountain has been
brought to a terrified pause by the shocking disappearance of George
Mallory and Sandy Irvine high on the shoulder of Mt. Everest. By the
following year, three climbers -- a British poet and veteran of the
Great War, a young French Chamonix guide, and an idealistic young
American -- find a way to take their shot at the top. They arrange
funding from the grieving Lady Bromley, whose son also disappeared on
Mt. Everest in 1924. Young Bromley must be dead, but his mother refuses to believe it and pays the trio to bring him home.
in Tibet and high on Everest, the three climbers -- joined by the
missing boy's female cousin -- find themselves being pursued through the
night by someone . . . or something. This nightmare becomes a matter of
life and death at 28,000 feet - but what is pursuing them? And what is
the truth behind the 1924 disappearances on Everest? As they fight
their way to the top of the world, the friends uncover a secret far more
abominable than any mythical creature could ever be. A pulse-pounding
story of adventure and suspense, The Abominable is Dan Simmons at his spine-chilling best.
