What the Critics Say

"I hadn't expected much when I began this read, having not heard of the author nor knowing anything about the series.... I found it to be a gripping story and... I feel the interruptions to the narrative for historical or cultural context made the story all that much better. The detailed research presented was fascinating and incredibly well done. I, for one, look forward to reading the entire series. (Robin Cain, author of When Dreams Bleed)

"Collaboratively written by the team of Charles G. Irion and Ronald L. Watkins, Murder on Everest begins with the death of Derek Sodoc on the slopes of Mt. Everest. The question arises as to whether the death of the son of a wealthy and powerful man was accidental or intentional. A riveting mystery replete with sex and betrayal, "Murder On Everest" is highly recommended." (Midwest Book Review)

    Story
    "An exciting, action-packed novel!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Murder On Everest is a crazy ride! First, I must admit that since I'm not a mountain climber I feared that some of the terms and descriptions may be over my head. I shouldn't have worried because Irion and Watkins do a great job of explaining everything in a way that is easy to follow. I had NO IDEA that mountain climbing could be so dangerous and involved! I felt the danger in each word spoken! The danger of the climb added to the story, making me bite my nails in anticipation.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scott Devlon - He is the kind of hero every book should have.


    What does Greg Lutz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Greg's voice made me feel excitement, anticipation, worry, and the danger in every step of the climb in this book. He made me feel like I was on the mountain too and to me that is the sign of a wonderful narrator.

    Story
    "Mountain Climber's Bodice-Ripper"

    This is WAY more than anyone would want to know about climbing Everest - poor editing, 5th grade level writing, and intrusively irritatingly repetitive musical interludes. The author may know a lot about climbing to the top of big hills, but he seriously needs a class in Creative Writing.
