Publisher's Summary

In 1959, nine Russian students set off on a skiing expedition in the Ural Mountains. Their mutilated bodies were discovered weeks later. Their bizarre and unexplained deaths are one of the most enduring true mysteries of our time. 

Nearly 60 years later, podcast host Nat McPherson ventures into the same mountains with her team, determined to finally solve the mystery of the Dyatlov Pass incident. 

Her plans are thwarted on the first night, when two trackers from her group are brutally slaughtered. The team’s guide, a superstitious man from a neighboring village, blames the killings on yetis, but no one believes him. 

As members of Nat’s team die one by one, she must figure out if there’s a murderer in their midst - or something even worse - before history repeats itself and her group becomes another casualty of the infamous Dead Mountain.

*sigh*

I really wanted to enjoy this, like a lot of people the Dyatlov Pass Incident is something I’ve been intrigued by for ages.
But
- the narration is _terrible_ Marlin’s pitching if voices means some characters are interchangeable and it’s all very declaratory. So much so that for the longest time I wasn’t sure if it was just the narration that kept me from enjoying the story
- spoiler. It’s the story that kept me from enjoying the story, this is like a terrible found footage film where you hate _everybody_ and can’t wait for the monster to kill them all.
- there’s a weird subplot about one member of the group that barely makes sense, which is super tedious.
- the ending is a massive cop out too, imho.

I know Moncrieff has a lot of fans, so this is definitely a “your mileage may vary” review. For the more casually interested listener, I’d recommend listening to the sample first.

Overall disappointing and not scary. Shame
