Publisher's Summary

In this propulsive locked-room thriller, a reunion weekend in the French Alps turns deadly when five friends discover someone has deliberately stranded them in a deserted mountaintop resort.

When Milla is invited to a reunion in the cosy resort that saw the peak of her snowboarding career, she drops everything to go. While she would rather forget the events of that winter, the invitation comes from Curtis, the one person she can't seem to let go.

The five friends haven't seen each other for 10 years, since the disappearance of the beautiful and enigmatic Saskia. But when an icebreaker game turns menacing, they realise they don't know who has really gathered them there and how far they will go to find the truth.

In a isolated lodge high up a mountain, amid a looming snowstorm, the secrets of the past are about to come to light. 

Imagine Agatha Christie set in the Alps and you have Shiver, a spectacularly sinister psychological debut that delves into the competitive side of human nature. If you can't trust your friends, who can you trust?

What a lot of snow

So unrealistic I think although I’m not a snowboarder can’t imagine all of this could happen. The characters are not nice people. I would suggest you spend money on another book.

Atmospheric and suspenseful

Brilliant! 5 friends meet together on the mountain where years before one of their number disappeared and another was tragically injured. Their reunion rapidly turns sinister when their ice breaker uncovers some long hidden secrets. Suspenseful and surprising. I really recommend this.
