Waiting on Wednesday : The White Road by Sarah Lotz

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is : The White Road by Sarah Lotz

A cutting-edge thriller about one man’s quest to discover horror lurking at the top of the world.

whiteroadDesperate to attract subscribers to his fledgling website, ‘Journey to the Dark Side’, ex-adrenalin junkie and slacker Simon Newman hires someone to guide him through the notorious Cwm Pot caves, so that he can film the journey and put it on the internet. With a tragic history, Cwm Pot has been off-limits for decades, and unfortunately for Simon, the guide he’s hired is as unpredictable and dangerous as the watery caverns that lurk beneath the earth. After a brutal struggle for survival, Simon barely escapes with his life, but predictably, the gruesome footage he managed to collect down in the earth’s bowels goes viral. Ignoring the warning signs of mental trauma, and eager to capitalize on his new internet fame, Simon latches onto another escapade that has that magic click-bait mix of danger and death – a trip to Everest. But up above 8000 feet, in the infamous Death Zone, he’ll need more than his dubious morals and wits to guide him, especially when he uncovers the truth behind a decade-old tragedy – a truth that means he might not be coming back alive. A truth that will change him – and anyone who views the footage he captures – forever.

Not a long wait for this – due out May.  Horror!!!

    Very cool sounding. Good old fashion Thrillers used to be my bread and butter.

    Everest is such a good setting for a thriller! There’s something incredibly creepy about the stark beauty of it.

    I like the idea of the internet connection, of someone hunting for thrills to share on the web: it’s a fairly new narrative thread, and I find it intriguing… 🙂
