He anticipated an exhilarating and arduous adventure among a group of like-minded idealists that he could report to his readers back in Connecticut. But on the Himalayan mountain, he discovered thieves, prostitutes, con men, and blackmailers. There were people who would do anything for a quick buck, or a guarantee of reaching the top. And some of them were on his own team.Thieves stole equipment on which the teams lives depended, Kodass life was threatened by one of his teammates, and a climbing partner was beaten unconscious by another in Base Camp.

He returned from the Himalaya disillusioned. But a plea for help from the daughter of a mountaineer who vanished on Everest on the very day that Kodas had retreated from his own disintegrating team prompted him to return to Everest and uncover an underworld that preys on unsuspecting climbers on major peaks around the world.A shocking expose of the dark underside of Everest and written with thriller-like pacing, High Crimes is a gripping and fascinating story.
