Can't Wait Wednesday - Mountain of the Dead by Jeremy Bates (@jeremybatesbook)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Since Jill is no longer hosting it, I'm joining Can’t Wait Wednesday movement over at Wishful Endings.

Mountain of the Dead by Jeremy Bates
Expected publication: May 5th 2018 by Jeremy Bates

Fact: During the night of February 1, 1959, in the remote reaches of Siberia, nine Russian hikers slash open their tent from the inside and flee into a blizzard in subpolar temperatures. Fact: By morning all are dead, several having suffered gruesome, violent deaths. What happened to them has baffled investigators and researchers to this day.

It has become known as the Dyatlov Pass Incident.

Now, an American true-crime writer seeking answers to the enduring mystery sets out to retrace the hikers' steps on their fateful expedition. However, nothing can prepare him for what he is about to discover…

As soon as Jeremy came to me with this, I was hooked by the whole "World's Scariest Places" concept. I need to go back and read the entire series at some point (Suicide Forest, The Catacombs, Helltown, and Island of the Dolls), but this is a great place to start.


  1. I love real life stories like this, I've never heard of this incident but I'm intrigued!

  2. Wow, sounds awesome. I need to check out this series as well!

  3. Ooh, a snowbound mystery! Yeah, some of the scariest settings for me are the cold, uninhabitable places, but I still love stories that take place in them.
