Review by: Jennifer Shannon on Jan. 24, 2011 :
I found “Murder on Everest” to be a murder mystery, thriller and action adventure all rolled into one. I like a book that keeps moving and is exciting. It was a wild ride for sure. It’s also full of details about mountaineering, which I know little about, but found surprisingly interesting. I can only imagine what it must be like to travel to the Himalayas and yet in a way I feel like I have through the book. The authors did a great job of placing me as the reader “on location” and in the middle of the action. I plan to read the next novel in the series, “Murder on Elbrus” and see if Scott Devlon can survive another trip to one of the Seven Summits.

Review by: Carol P. on Jan. 18, 2011 :
Charles Irion and Ronald Watkins create a riveting mystery on a quest to summit Mt. Everest. From cover to cover I was taken on an adventure, filled with mystery, murder, sex and betrayal. When this expedition starts out, the cast of characters ranges from
A Media Mogul, mountaineers, Sherpa, a pesky blogger, ex-wives, Maoist insurgents, a
film crew, and more. The authors describe the list of characters, the breathtaking scenery, and mountaineering in the hostile and unforgiving environment. They also take time to throw in historical and cultural content. The climbing sequences are thrilling, descriptions of high altitude weather will numb your fingers while the suspense will glue you to your chair. Bundle up in front of the fire and prepare yourself for an adventure you are not soon to forget!
