Deaths from falls, avalanches, illness, heart attacks, and high altitude sickness are a matter of course, and when you add in murder, action and adventure, the combination makes for unforgettable reads. The climb begins with the first book in the series, Murder on Everest, and is followed with

Murder on Elbrus, Murder on Mt. McKinley, Murder on Puncak Jaya, Murder on Aconcagua, Murder on Vinson Massif, and ends with Murder on Kilimanjaro. There is also a novella, Abandoned on Everest.

Reviews of Murder on Elbrus (A Summit Murder Mystery) by Charles G. Irion

Jennifer Shannon reviewed on Feb. 16, 2011

Some of my favorite characters from Murder on Everest join Scott Devlon for this fast-paced adventure in Murder on Elbrus. This time the action is in Russia; a really interesting place with a rich history. Scott once again finds himself in the middle of a murder scene with plenty of likely suspects. Who would murder the First Deputy Prime Minister of Russia? How? Why? The action kept me reading all the way to the end.
