A CURSED PLACE. A COLD CASE. A KILLER WHO LEFT NO TRACE.

The huge International bestseller.

Gripping, unputdownable and packed with twists, The Mountain is a thriller that you will never forget.

“Can be compared (with no fear of hyperbole) to Stephen King and Jo Nesbø” – Massimo Vincenz, La Repubblica.

Jeremiah Salinger blames himself.
The crash was his fault. He was the only survivor. Now the depression and the nightmares are closing in. Only his daughter Clara can put a smile on his face.

But when he takes Clara to the Bletterbach – a canyon in the Dolomites rich in fossil remains – he overhears by chance a conversation that gives his life renewed focus. In 1985 three students were murdered there, their bodies savaged, limbs severed and strewn by a killer who was never found.

Salinger, a New Yorker, is far from home, and these Italian mountains, where his wife was born, harbour a close-knit, tight-lipped community whose mistrust of outsiders can turn ugly. All the same, solving this mystery might be the only thing that can keep him sane.

Translated from the Italian by Howard Curtis
