Coming August 2017


Teenage climber Ryan Hart is still in Nepal, working at a refugee centre and holding on to his dream to summit Mount Everest. His Tibetan girlfriend Tashi shares his passion, but a climbing accident puts their plans on hold.

Later, the courageous young Sherpa Kami comes back into Ryan’s life. Groundbreaking stem cell treatment in the United States has cured his paralysis, and Kami can walk again.

What better way to celebrate than with a trek to Everest Base Camp?

The friends set out, but the government of Nepal is no longer in control. Climate change has caused the monsoon to fail, plunging the country into famine. Warlords march in and a terrorist attack sees Kami and the others held hostage at Base Camp.

Kami comes up with a desperate plan. The friends escape to Everest, climbing ever higher as the terror leader sets out in pursuit.

Storm clouds gather.

The scene is set for the ultimate Everest adventure.

Matt Dickinson is an award-winning writer and filmmaker with a passion for climbing and adventure. During his filmmaking career he has worked as a director/cameraman for National Geographic television, the Discovery Channel, the BBC and Channel 4. His film projects have taken him to Antarctica, Africa and the Himalaya, often in the company of the world’s leading climbers and expeditioners. His most notable film success was Summit Fever in which Matt reached the summit of Everest via the treacherous north face. His book The Death Zone tells the true story of that ascent and has become a bestseller in many different countries.

Matt is currently patron of reading at Lady Manners School in Bakewell and continues to climb and explore. In January 2013 he summitted Mount Aconcagua, which, at 6,965 metres, is the highest peak in the world outside the Himalaya. In 2016, and again in 2017, he was back on Everest as writer in residence with Jagged Globe’s South Col Expedition. Currently, he is planning an ascent of Denali in Alaska, one of the ‘seven summits’.

Recently Matt has started writing fiction for teenage readers. His debut thriller series Mortal Chaos was well received by critics and readers alike. Matt has followed this up with The Everest Files, a dramatic and popular trilogy set on the world’s highest mountain. Lie Kill Walk Away is his latest teen thriller. When he’s not writing, Matt tours the UK, speaking at schools and colleges and inspiring a new generation of adventurers.
