Summary
"A summit is a summit, and the truth is the truth. But the view from 8,848 meters isn't always so clear. Two men, seventy years apart, push for the top of Mount Everest, driven by forces beyond their control and something inside that says climb. After eight successful summits, Mount Everest guide Neil Quinn is confident he can handle anything the mountain throws his way. But then disaster strikes steps from the top, leaving him with a lot of questions and a very old swastika-embellished ice axe that should never have been so high on the mountain--not if Everest's meticulously documented history is accurate. But before Quinn can catch his breath, the combined wrath of his vengeful employer and an angry client drives him out of the Himalayas and back to Europe, where he struggles to discover the truth of what happened. He soon uncovers the story of Josef Becker, a Nazi climber who sought the top of the world seventy years before, when Europe teetered on the brink of the Second World War. Quinn's innocent queries into Becker's expedition soon have neo-Nazis, assassins, and history buffs vying to take possession of the axe--proof of Nazi alpine superiority, and strong evidence that a German climber was the first to summit Mount Everest." --
