I’ve finished the fifth book in the World’s Scariest Places series. It’s called MOUNTAIN OF THE DEAD. I’ve been working on revisions with an agent, and now that they’re largely done, I’m looking for a couple generous people who would consider reading a copy of the book and providing a bit of feedback (which could be as much as you want, or as little as a paragraph or two detailing what you liked or didn’t – don’t worry, I’m good with criticism!)
If you are interested, please send me an email at jeremybatesbooks (at) gmail (dot) com
Would love to hear from you!
And here’s is the blurb for the story (it’s based on true events):
During the night of February 1, 1959, in the remote reaches of Siberia, nine Russian hikers slash open their tent from the inside and flee into a blizzard in subpolar temperatures, most without boots or proper clothing. By morning all are dead, several having suffered gruesome, violent deaths. What happened to them has remained unsolved to this day.
Albert Smith, an American true-crime writer seeking answers to the enduring mystery, sets out to retrace the hikers steps on their fateful expedition. However, nothing can prepare him for what he is about to discover…
PS: A movie was also made on the same topic a few years ago. I didn’t learn of it until a short while ago, but feel free to watch it – the plot is very different to my book…
