June 1924. On the brutal North East Ridge of Mount Everest, famous adventurers George Mallory and Andrew Irvine vanish into the snow-whipped night. Daredevil explorer Richard Deacon devises a plan to follow in the men's footsteps, accompanied only by two friends. Off piste and with no support team, the three men strike for Everest's peak and the most vicious climate on earth. As the winds rise and the temperature and oxygen levels drop, Deacon and his companions hear howls in the distance. Some dark creature is tracking them up the mountain, sending them scrabbling blindly into Everest's dangerous heights to escape it. Soon they will discover what happened to Mallory's crew - but can they escape the same hideous fate? A gripping thriller by a master of the genre, The Abominable blends historical fact with spine-tingling drama - this is one of the most chilling and unforgettable novels you will ever read.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I am in awe of Dan Simmons Stephen King Dan Simmons is a giant among novelists Lincoln Child The Abominable by the talented Dan Simmons is a sprawling high-concept novel that synthesises historical fact and very modern pulse-raising adventure set on the slopes of Mount Everest in the 1920s, with tangled but subtly well-ordered plots ... The Abominable may be his most impressive book to date Good Book Guide His last 'cold' book, The Terror, was terrific. This appears to have sprung out of that and is cleverly presented as if true. It's a wonderful, chilling tale of an Everest expedition just after Mallory vanished ... It is stunning The Bookseller Set aside a few days to read this book that will enlighten and reward you with a story of heroism and decency in the face of appalling cruelty. A story of such emotional resonance it will still be with you long after you turn the final page. It will feel as though you are saying goodbye to friends you have grown to love and respect. It is amongst the best of books Forbidden Planet

“The Abominable”

I picked this up because I had enjoyed Drood and thought this might be a horror story. The summary is a tiny bit misleading because this isn't a horror story, so I was slightly disappointed. However, I found... More
