I beta-read the first draft of this story and it hooked me, hard. Think a bit of the Eiger Sanction, the poems of Robert Service (“There are strange things done ‘neat the midnight sun/ by the men who moil for gold . . .”) and old-school adventure romance, with a government conspiracy lurking in the background. I’ve been around the edges of hard-core winter weather and mountain weather, and Dorothy nails the dangers and the beauty.
