Synopsis
IT'S a far cry from the slush of London's streets to the crisp, dry, shining snow of the Austrian mountains. Yet there was a direct trail leading from the decayed Bloomsbury boarding-house where a man's body was found, burnt beyond recognition, to a gay party of sixteen young ski-ing enthusiasts enjoying a holiday at Lech am Arlberg. The trail took Inspector Julian Rivers of Scotland Yard in search of a murderer of whom he knew only that he was well educated, of great personal charm, probably Irish, a good climber and an expert ski-er. An exciting chase ends in dramatic fashion with a ski-run in a blinding snow-storm. Carol Carnac has never given us a better story than this one.
