Preston Douglas’s latest novel is entitled “Dead Mountain.” In 2008 nine mountaineers failed to return from a winter backpacking trip in the New Mexico mountains. Their campsite showed they had slashed their way out of their tent and fled barefoot into a blizzard. Only six bodies were ever found. The case was given the code name “Dead Mountain” by the FBI but was never solved. Two more bodies have now been discovered in a cave and the FBI has taken up the search again – only someone or some thing does not want the ninth body found. “Dead Mountain” is also available in Libby!
