Max Gordon. Wanted for murder.
Two thousand freezing metres high in the mountain peaks, Max Gordon is grappling with death.
His race to win an X-treme sports challenge has become a race to survive. Max witnesses the last moments of a mysterious Basque monk, who screams a cryptic clue before plummeting to his death. The clue is a prophecy that fortells of a cataclysmic ecological event which will kill millions across Europe.
Now Max is trapped in the darkness of a dead man's secret and the hunt is on. How will Max prove his innocence when nobody will trust him – and he can trust no one?
