From the New York Times bestselling author of The Reckoning comes a thrilling novel about the dangers of obsessive love and a battle for ghostly revenge as Hugh Glass finds himself amidst disaster on the sunlit walls of Yosemite.
Hugh Glass once found glory on El Cap—the same place he would meet the woman he would marry and lose. Now, thirty-five years later, half a mile up the walls of Yosemite, a rope breaks and sends a young woman plummeting to her death, catching Hugh Glass in the rescue mission from hell on her way down.
Plagued by fire, ice, and old demons, Hugh finds himself drawn into a dead vertical race against time. Reaching the wreckage of disaster among a team of women high above, the rescuers become the victims.
Caught between the golden summit and terminal velocity, they cannot retreat, but their survival is not guaranteed as they face the harrowing mystery of the wall.
