Title: High Crimes by Michael Kodas - a 'must read'!
Post by: MoT on Nov 2 2010, 14:49
Hi guys, I've just finished reading 'High Crimes' by Michael Kodas and I have to say that it was extremely hard to put it down. Gripping stuff - it focuses on the death of Nils Antezana on Everest in 2004 and also the Connecticut Expedition from the same year. It gives first and second hand accounts of the corruption, greed, thievery, prostitution, suspicious deaths that are all part of the world's largest mountain.

As gripping as Into Thin Air (IMHO).

5 stars  ;D
