A long-dead climber who comes in from the cold brings murder to the mountain air. Mountaineer Reginald Kincaid was believed to have died during an expedition to climb Mount Everest. It comes as a shock to his fellow climbers when he turns up again 22 years later and the mystery is compounded by the death of Arthur Fleece, Kincaid's climbing partner on the Everest attempt. Fleece falls to his death on Mount Snowdon in an apparent accident, but the feud that had developed between Fleece and the resurrected Kincaid sparks a murder investigation for George Gently with a 'dead' man as the prime suspect. Praise for Alan Hunter's Gently books: 'It is always a pleasure to look forward to another Gently book by Alan Hunter ...' Police Review

“The way in which Omer Rains overcame a paralyzing near-death experience is as inspirational as any story can be” (John C. Malone, chairman, Liberty Media). “You’ll never walk again.” California senator Omer Rains had been a politician on the global stage, a power-broking lawyer of A-list celebrities, and conqueror of some of the highest mountains in the world. But when a paralyzing brain aneurysm and stroke hit him at age sixty-one, he became more helpless than a small child. In Back to the Summit, Rains takes readers on a courageous journey toward recovery, both physical and spiritual, as he reflects on the people, events, and American history that shaped his life and gave him the strength to dare to walk again. Every flashback to the past offers insight into the philosophy that once saved his life and now defines his every action: “Get up from every fall, no matter how great or far, and continue to live life fully.” Those who have suffered physical trauma may find hope in his story; their loved ones may gain insight and understanding. And any reader who has ever faced a mountain of a setback will be inspired to keep on fighting to live again. “I am Nepalese—a Sherpa—and Omer’s inspirational and heroic story of recovery is a moving one both in my native land of Nepal and in other countries where he does untold humanitarian work . . . This book is a must read for anyone with a loved one who has ever suffered a near death experience.” —Kaji Sherpa, former holder of world record, fastest ascent of Mount Everest
