Readers to Select Cover of the Final Novel in the Summit Murder Mystery Series

Irion Books launches contest asking fans to help choose the book cover for Murder on Kilimanjaro in which the son of the President of the United States is murdered.

Phoenix, AZ, November 15, 2011 --( Authors Charles G. Irion and Ronald J. Watkins are asking fans to help them choose a cover for what will be the concluding book in their Summit Murder Mystery Series. The contest, which will run until March 1, 2012, asks participants to choose between two possible cover images for the final book Murder On Kilimanjaro. Irion says, “We can’t decide which cover deserves the unique distinction of finishing the series of seven. Through this contest, we want to get feedback from the people whose opinions truly matter … our readers!”

Readers who vote on a cover option will be entered into a contest to win a full set of all seven books in the Summit Murder Mystery series! To enter the contest, readers are asked to go to the Summit Murder Mystery Series blog at and fill out the provided form selecting which cover image they think best captures Mount Kilimanjaro, one the amazing seven summits. At the end of the contest, the cover with the most votes will be chosen, and a winner will be contacted via email.

The seventh and final book, Murder On Kilimanjaro will be what Irion promises is the “crown jewel of our Summit Murder Mystery series. We are very excited about this book. It will be full of non-stop action and tie the entire series together.”

In order to do research for the plot of Murder On Kilimanjaro, Irion actually climbed the mighty mountain himself in June 2011. When asking Irion what the plot contains, he laughs and says, “We are rescuing the President of the United States. Our hero Scott Devlon will be helping the President get off the mountain after his son is murdered.” With the release of the book due just prior to the Presidential Election next year, it is sure to be an unforgettable ending to an already amazing series.

The book that started it all is Murder On Everest, which finds the series’ hero Scott Devlon returning to the mountain to retrieve the body of a friend, Derek Sodoc, who died during their initial summit attempt. Sodoc’s influential Father is convinced Derek didn’t die from the elements and hopes by sending the same team back up to retrieve Derek’s body, the truth of what really happened will be revealed. Each book in the series takes place on one of the world’s seven continental summits, and includes climbing drama, mystery, murder and intrigue.
