Climbing Mount Everest has always been an imposing prospect for the intrepid souls who brave its peaks, but, as author Michael Kodas makes clear, nowadays the thing to fear the most may not be the mountain's aloof and forbidding precipices, but the opportunistic shysters and outright criminals exploiting the legions of mountaineers making the climb. Kodas--who joined a diverse group of climbers in a major expedition--paints a world of international thievery and terror. Narrator Mark Deakins speaks in a refined tone as he details the ways suburban warriors--perhaps ones with too much time on their hands and too much money in their pockets--have soured the Everest experience.
