Abstract:

"A dead boy, frozen stiff and propped in a chairlift descends to the tiny ski station of Greutz in the Austrian Alps ... A young bride is almost killed in a skiing accident after her skis are tampered with. Fiona, the glamorous operator of the village discotheque, is obviously badly frightened and fails to show up for work one evening ... Then, when Greutz is cut off from the outside world by bad weather and the threat of avalanche, the holiday atmosphere evaporates completely; and Dr. Patrick Grant, on a mid-term vacation from his Oxford college, finds himself embroiled in his most dangerous and mysterious case."--Page 4 of cover.
