AvalancheBook - 2009
In the tradition of disaster movies like The Poseidon Adventure , this tense and gripping thriller is set in an exclusive ski resort during the worst avalanche in living memory Every year thousands flock to the exclusive ski resort of Hauts des Aigles to watch the Race du Diable--the most exciting and dangerous downhill race in the world. This year six champions will compete for the prize--a rare diamond worth $12 million, donated by a mysterious Russian billionaire. But it is not only the six racers who will risk their lives in the coming days. Caught up in their own secret plots and passions, visitors and townsfolk alike are oblivious to the silent killer waiting for them in the mountains. When the avalanche comes, only three things can save them--fate, courage, and the will to live. Nothing can stop it. No one can stand in its path. Who will survive?
