To his fellow climbers when he turns up again 22 years later and the mystery is compounded by the death of Arthur Fleece Kincaid's climbing partner on the Everest attempt Fleece falls to his death on These are a little dated at the best of times but this mountaineering plot just dragged I found it hard to keep track with the various relationships especially the women and the descriptions of the scenery and routes walked up Snowdon just dragged It all made sense at the end when Gently summarises it but overall a weaker book for me
