A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

South Africa author Lotz has a devious talent for claustrophobic tales that balance precariously between thriller and sheer horror and her new novel is no exception, a worthy follow-up to Day Four, her sinister tale of a cruise gone terribly wrong or The Three about the doomed survivors of a plane crash. From the sheer terror of an underground cave exploration in Wales that goes totally wrong and results in terrible death to an ascent of Mount Everest, we follow Simon Newman, something of an adrenaline junkie, as he seeks to document the bodies of past mountaineering casualties but comes face to face with creepy horrors he had not expected, as well as elements from his past he had conveniently filed away in his memory. Powerfully atmospheric and particularly adept in conveying the shivers, the gripping story Lotz unfolds has ghosts, imperfect characters and the quality of dread. Not for the faint-hearted. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Synopsis

The White Road by Sarah Lotz

Adrenaline-junky Simon Newman sneaks onto private land to explore a dangerous cave in Wales with a strange man he's met online. But Simon gets more than he bargained for when the expedition goes horribly wrong. Simon emerges, the only survivor, after a rainstorm trap the two in the cave. Simon thinks he's had a lucky escape. But his video of his near-death experience has just gone viral. Suddenly Simon finds himself more famous than he could ever have imagined. Now he's faced with an impossible task: he's got to defy death once again, and film the entire thing. The whole world will be watching. There's only on place on earth for him to pit himself against the elements: Mt Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. But Everest is also one of the deadliest spots on the planet. Two hundred and eighty people have died trying to reach its peak. And Simon's luck is about to run out.

'Sarah Lotz is a natural born storyteller. Like the hand reaching up from the dark well, she'll drag you into her thrall. You'll come up gasping.' -- Lauren Beukes
