    Story
    (28)

    In 1924, the English mountaineer Ashley Walsingham dies attempting to summit Mount Everest, leaving his fortune to his former lover, Imogen Soames-Andersson - whom he has not seen in seven years. Ashley's solicitors search in vain for Imogen, but the estate remains unclaimed. Nearly 80 years later, new information leads the same law firm to Tristan Campbell, a young American who could be the estate's rightful heir. If Tristan can prove he is Imogen's descendant, the inheritance will be his.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This was a book for people who enjoy the narrative of war and struggle. Vibrant descriptions of battle and survival.


    What was most disappointing about Justin Go’s story?

    This book marked itself as a riveting, enthralling, whirlwind tale. In actuality, it was a slow paced, but at times gruesome narrative that never went anywhere. The story lacked the proper investment of its characters to draw you in and never truly develop to keep you hooked.


    Have you listened to any of Steve West’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was superb! Unfortunately, the content lacked depth or emtion and never concluded. Leaving the listener feeling unsatisfied.


    What character would you cut from The Steady Running of the Hour?

    Mere, she was supposed to be a driving force in the story. However, she felt like an annoying distraction.
