USA: Villard, 2002. First Edition, First Printing. Very Good Hardcover in a Very Good Dust Jacket.
Child has everything he needs for an Ian Fleming-type mountaineering drama: a great setting in the Pamir Alai region of Kyrgyzstan; a cast of quick-witted American mountaineers (three men and one woman); a backdrop of drug trafficking, political instability and economic free-for-all; Islamic mujahideen facing Uzbeki soldiers armed with naivete or Kalashnikovs, or both.
Carefully read. No flaws but for a gentle reading.
