George Zell Heustonabout this book: In a shimmering world of snow and ice, a young climbing guide finds himself immersed in a desperate Cold War Struggle involving nuclear weapons, the FBI, CIA, and Soviet Military Intelligence (GRU). This story is a fictional thriller set high on the slopes of Mount Rainier in the mid-1960s, in the midst of a global Cold War, and an unpopular hot war in Vietnam. It is the story of young Bradford Lehman's first love, and first kill on a desperate mission, against professional implacable professional assassins. It seems impossible that he can survive these odds. But Lehman holds a trump card — his thorough and intimate knowledge of Mount Rainier.
How did the FBI and CiA come to rely on young Lehman? How was he trained and equipped to fight his way through his mission? How did the experience shape him? What tools did the FBI and CIA bring into the mission that made the difference between all-out nuclear war and maintaining the ugly, uneasy status quo that were the hallmarks of the Cold War era?
Grab your wooden Ice axe, step into your climbing boots, rope in with young Bradford Lehman, and discover. The answers are there — high on the big mountain.
For all who have interest in the history of that era, who love suspense and the thrill of the world of spies and spy-catchers, this is your trip to that world. Embark.
