A Fear Of Heights

A re-imagining of Irvine & Mallory on Everest. A mystery solved.

On 8th June 1924, George Mallory and Sandy Irvine are seen climbing strongly just below the summit of Mount Everest. They were never seen again. Decades of speculation about their fate begin. In 1999, Mallory’s body is finally discovered on the higher slopes of the mountain, but the one thing which could prove the summit was reached in 1924 is missing – Sandy Irvine’s camera.

In 2001, when James attempts Everest, he only survives because Alice gives him the oxygen he needs. Ten years later, now living in New Zealand, their marriage threatens to disintegrate when Alice rushes to England because her twin brother Simon, an Irvine obsessive, has disappeared. James refuses to go with her. Days later, their house is destroyed by an earthquake which devastates Christchurch.

When James forces himself to follow Alice to Cambridge and track down Simon, they find themselves confronted by a wall of secrecy and physical threats, and a chase begins to be the first to unveil the real secret of Irvine’s disappearance.
