The Mountain

The Mountain

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.

A first-rate thriller.
ZDF Morgenmagazin.
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.
Marcel Berlins, The Times.
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.
Western Mail.
Smart, stylish and extremely scary.
Sunday Mirror.
Scenic, pacy, rock hard, with seriously disturbing moments, this a clever, complex thrilling and thoroughly brilliant tale.
Sunday Sport.
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.
For Winter Nights
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.
Publishers Weekly.
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.
Anne Bonny Book Reviews
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.
