It's ice cold. You're miles from help. And one of you will be next...

When struggling journalist Cecily Wong is invited to join an expedition to climb one of the world's tallest mountains, it seems like the chance of a lifetime. She doesn't realise how deadly the climb will be.

As their small team starts to climb, things start to go wrong. There's a theft. Then an accident. Then a mysterious note, pinned to her tent: there's a murderer on the mountain.

The higher they get, the more dangerous the climb becomes, and the more they need to trust one another. And that's when Cecily finds the first body...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Breathless is a high-altitude, high-stakes thriller that combines fascinating, authentic mountaineering experience with pure thriller entertainment. The suspense rises like the Nepalese mountain it is set on. Reminded me of the best of Michael Crichton, where in-depth knowledge and a masterful plot work together to create a tense adrenaline-fuelled ride. I loved it' - Matt Haig

'If you're looking for a book to thrill and transport you, then Breathless is the read for you! Set high in the chilling Death Zone, this thriller had me on the edge of my seat. I loved being immersed in the competitive, high-stakes world of alpine climbing and Amy brilliantly evokes how risky this setting is, a setting that can only get deadlier with a murderer on the mountain... a must read for 2022' - Sarah Pearse

'Tense, chilling and terrifying with unforgettable characters and an unpredictable and atmospheric plot. One of the most original thrillers I've read. It deserves to be huge!' - Claire Douglas

'This thriller would be unsettling enough at sea level, but in the death zone, it's suffocatingly tense. McCulloch combines extreme mountaineering with murder to create a novel that's chilling, vivid, and entirely unique' - Abigail Dean

'The ultimate high-altitude mountain thriller. Ice-cold, twisting, deadly and doesn't put a foot wrong. It took me on a chilling journey to the death zone, and I loved it!' - Janice Hallett

'Nail-biting, chilling, totally exhilarating - a true triumph' - Stacey Halls

'I loved it. I read it in two sittings. It was so tense by the end, the air in my bedroom felt as thin as in the mountains. I think it's a total triumph of a thriller' - Gillian McAllister

'Set on an expedition to climb one of the world's tallest mountains, Breathless is an addictive, tightly plotted thriller that will leave you chilled to the bone' - Lucy Clarke

'I have climbed Manaslu with Amy, she's a very positive thinker with good energy to be around on the mountain - she is the real deal' - Nirmal "Nimsdai" Purja

'A breathtaking book set at 8000 metres - the air alone can kill you, and there's a killer on the loose too. I absolutely loved this, the author's incredible knowledge of mountaineering really shone through - a real page-turner that I read in a couple of days. Tense, terrifying and fascinating in equal measure' - Catherine Cooper

'A tense, absorbing thriller with the most spectacular setting imaginable. It's bleak, beautiful and powerfully atmospheric. I couldn't put it down' - Jennifer Saint

“A Dizzyingly Addictive Thriller I'm Still Catching My Breath From That Ending”

So breathtaking. The views. The climb. The atmosphere thins the higher they go, the more dangerous it becomes. The mountain takes lives every year. It is an unforgiving environment, but that is the challenge.
