New Book Review - Murder on Everst

Very excited to share this amazing review with you from The Indie Bookshelf of Murder on EverestMurder on Everest is the first book in the Summit Murder Mystery series.

In Murder on Everest when Derek Sodoc, only son of the world's richest and most powerful man dies attempting to climb Mt. Everest, questions are raised. Was it the mountain that sealed his fate? Or perhaps something more sinister?  After reading the book Abandoned on Everest that details Derek Sodoc's untimely death, Sodoc's father convinces the surviving expedition members to return to Everest - presumably to recover Derek's body. With billions at stake and a relentless father searching for someone to blame, everyone is a suspect. Set against the backdrop of the world's highest and deadliest mountain, Murder on Everest is filled with intrigue, sex, betrayal and mystery. It is unlike any murder mystery you've ever read.

The Oldest Couple to Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro

Couple becomes oldest to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro
Swiss natives Esther, 84, and Martin Kafer, 85, have just successfully reached the top of Africa’s tallest summit, Mt. Kilimanjaro, which makes them the oldest couple to ever accomplish the feat.

“Esther and Martin’s achievement epitomizes the spirit of the Ascent for Alzheimer’s event, which is that no matter how challenging the journey there is support.” Says CEO of Alzheimer Society of B.C., Jean Blake.

The couple met on a mountain top and event spent their honeymoon on top of the Matterhorn. The couple moved to Canada because of their surroundings. In a The Globe and Mail article, Martin explains his reasoning for staying. “The mountains were the big attraction that kept us here.”
