Phoenix, AZ, December 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Today, Irion Books announces the much anticipated release of the fifth book in their Summit Murder Mystery Series, Murder on Aconcagua. One of the most unique series ever written, the Summit Murder Mystery Series is co-authored by Charles G. Irion and Ronald J. Watkins, and is set at the peaks of the highest mountains on the world’s seven continents. Remote, inaccessible, they are the crown jewels of climbing. They are the world’s deadliest mountains, and deaths from falls, avalanches, illness, heart attacks, and high altitude sickness, are a matter of course. Add in murder to the mix, and you get seven of the most original and exciting murder mysteries ever written.
Inspired by Charles Irion’s 1987 attempt to climb Mt. Everest, and his 2011 climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro, each book offers the story of a little known region of the world. The authors promise you will encounter bizarre customs, ancient taboos, political intrigue, and ethnic conflicts, and Murder on Aconcagua is no exception.
In Murder on Aconcagua, Irion says, “Our hero not only battles the brutal elements of the Aconcagua summit, but the determined greed of a murderer.” The book’s synopsis tells us that hero Scott Devlon is once again sent by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency on another climbing expedition. This time the mountain is Aconcagua, the highest in South America. His mission is to confirm a report that three Inca golden idols have been discovered and are headed to Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chavez. Legend says he who possesses them is invincible. Scott’s assignment is to prevent that from taking place but he quickly learns that there are those who will stop at nothing, including murder, to get their hands on the idols.
