Publisher's Summary

It’s been thirty years since his father went missing. Now there’s a body, can he finally find out why?

When a man’s body is discovered in a Swiss glacier thirty years after he went missing, his son, Foster Treherne, hopes he’ll finally have closure on what happened to the father he never met. But then the autopsy reveals signs of a struggle, and what was assumed to be a tragic accident suddenly looks more sinister.

Foster tracks down his father’s old friends, but when he starts to ask questions it becomes clear that there’s something they don’t want to tell him. While some are evasive, others seem to wish the body had never been found. What exactly is their connection to each other, and why are they so reluctant to discuss the day his father disappeared? Who are they trying to protect?

If he wants to uncover what really happened, Foster must follow the trail of secrets and lies - no matter how devastating the consequences, and what they might reveal about his father. Because the truth can only stay buried for so long....

Good read!

Well worded and thought out story. A hint of a mystery without being unbelievable. No foul language, which was great?

Glad I took a chance on it

It's always hard to buy a book without any reviews. I took a chance on this one and enjoyed it. It took me two or three chapters to get used to the narrator. I found that when the other characters were introduced the narration all came together. The ending could have gone another chapter, but the main story was solved. I listened to it over two days and enjoyed it.

Don’t Like Interview Style or Narrator

Story is fairly boring, always talking with people about past events, I prefer “seeing” events as they happen. Narrator is too light and sing song, he’d be better for a light or comedic story, not a serious one.

Great performance by Mikael Naramore

An intriguing story that spans the decades of an orphan who's parents were well-known by others, but not him. An unexpected find of his lost father's corpse preserved in a glacier begins his search for the truth about his parents past and his future. It is a well written story that pulls you in quickly and for me, kept me reading with interest wondering along with the main character, how will this end. If you enjoy listening to Audible books, the performance by Mikael Naramore is excellent.

Very weak and shallow effort from this writer. Might have make a middling short story. Terrible reader didn't help.

Disappointing!

I have read most, if not all, of Kevin Wignall's earlier novels and found them excellent -very well thought out and all were engrossing. This one starts off very well but it is long and drawn out and the climax is disappointing and unlikely to say the least.

Not sure why I read it....

Let me first say that the person narrating did a very good job. let me. Second, the story had me somewhat confused. It sounded as though the protagonist was very young adult and got on my nerves with the constant befuddlement.
This wasn't for me. As a matter of fact, I had to fast forward a quarter of the way through the book to the end so that I could leave this review.

Enjoyable book

Foster Treherne, who never knew his parents, begins to learn about them after his father’s body is found in a glacier. A couple of items noticed during the autopsy start Foster on a quest to learn more about his father. As a successful artist, Treherne has sufficient funds to visit his father’s old friends in the US and Europe to learn whether his father had been murdered.

Makes me want to be a painter.

Oh what a beautifully crafted story. The narrator is terrific and I just love the story
