Publisher's Summary

Bradford Lehman is only 18 when he is handpicked by US government intelligence to spearhead an incredibly dangerous mission on the unforgiving terrain of Washington's Mt. Rainier. It is suspected that Soviet military agents are prepared to position a portable nuclear bomb on top of the mountain in a statement of Cold War dominance. As a guide for the Rainier Guide Service, Lehman is a perfect candidate to lead a team of four in search of the hidden weapon. If detonated, the bomb - deadly enough in itself to cause untold death and disaster - could trigger an eruption of the active volcano, which would wipe out much of the urban population and infrastructure of the American Northwest. With the flashpoint for full-scale nuclear war between the United States and Soviet Union imminent, Lehman and his team must neutralize the deadly threat.

Great Subject Matter -Completely Flat Characters

I love mountaineering and am a big fan of cold war period spy thrillers. I could have easily overlooked some basic gaps in the plotting and really enjoyed this book, but the flat characters,insipid love story, and robotic inner monologues just overwhelmed the fun of vintage mountaineering with guns.
At first I thought the narration stilted, and maybe it was a bit. But I don't think any narrator could do much with this dialogue coming from these characters.
