An electrifying debut in the new wave of Italian thriller writing. D'Andrea's a name to add to your Eurocrime list.
A canyon in the Italian Dolomites, beautiful yet sinister, provides a stunning setting for Luca D'Andrea's first thriller . . . D'Andrea piles on the action at the atmosphere with the panache of a seasoned writer.
Smart, stylish and extremely scary.
Can be compared (with no fear of hyperbole) to Stephen King and Jo Nesbø.
A brilliant, enthralling debut.
D'Andrea is a real master.
Scenic, pacy, rock hard, with seriously disturbing moments, this a clever, complex thrilling and thoroughly brilliant tale.
D'Andrea's story sweeps away the reader in an avalanche of life-threatening revelations that make The Mountain a complete success as a debut thriller.
Sentences like lightning bolts, twists like avalanches: a spectacular thriller.
A perfectly constructed thriller . . . Draws the reader right in.
D'Andrea's superb debut thriller mines the darkness that hides beneath the surface of Siebenhoch, a beautiful, remote Italian village . . . A genuinely unexpected denouement hits like a freight train, perfectly bringing together all the pieces of a macabre, utterly riveting puzzle.
The novel contains some fantastic writing and a twist you will NOT see coming! I was genuinely amazed at how much this seemingly cold case, gripped me.
An unbelievably nail-biting thriller.
An entertaining read with a wide cast of possible suspects, not all of them human. The book's twists and turns continue right until the end.
The Mountain is a rich, disturbing and multi-layered thriller, the kind you can very easily lose yourself in, just as I did. Just wrap up warm - this is a thriller that chills.
A first-rate thriller.
