Sarah lost her husband twenty-five years ago to Mt. Everest, and vowed she’d never speak it’s name again, let alone go there. The mountain that claimed her husband is now in her son’s blood and it will not let go. This time, she will not remain at home while her son climbs the killer peak. If the mountain is going to claim him, it would have to do it staring her in the face. Frank Kincaid’s reputation as the finest Everest expedition guide for over the last twenty years has been the means for supporting his treasured charity work in Khum Jung. Adhering to uncompromising methods, he has never lost a client on the mountain. But this group of expedition clients has a reminder of the past. Suddenly he is confronted with the memory of the disaster that took his friend, Sherpa Pasang when it claimed the life of Sarah's husband. As history threatens to repeat itself, Frank is put to the supreme test. Will he obey his cardinal rule of protecting his Sherpa guide at all costs even if it means sacrificing Sarah’s son to the mountain or will he trust his heart and roll the dice? Can Sarah accept the excruciating decision that is before him and what it will mean for the Sherpa and her son fighting for their lives on the mountain? Will the mountain take Sarah's son?
