Summary
The Lonely Skier: High among the Dolomite Mountains, a film crew led by half-con man half-genius director Derek Engles is ostensibly making a skiing picture. But beneath the mountain ice is a fortune in Nazi gold, which the filmmaker will find-or die trying. Only Neil Blair, an old army buddy hired on as a scriptwriter for the fake film, can stop things from going downhill fast, in Innes's literal cliffhanger, made into the 1948 film Snowbound. Campbell's Kingdom: A London insurance clerk who's just received a devastating diagnosis, Bruce Wetheral learns he's the sole heir to his grandfather's land in the Canadian Rockies. Stuart Campbell froze to death in a shack on the edge of a mountain, where he lived his final years in a feverish hunt for oil. Everyone thought he was crazy, but his grandson believes he may have been on to something. The intrepid young man travels to the far reaches of Alberta to take the oil industry by the throat-and live or die in pursuit of his grandfather's impossible dream. The Blue Ice: It's been ten years since metallurgist George Farnell disappeared after setting out to make his fortune in the frozen wilds of Norway. Two lines of poetry and a shard of mineral ore are all that remain of him, and only industrialist and adventurer Bill Gansert has the wit to understand Farnell's final discovery-and the daring to seize it for his own. With a small crew, he sets out for the Arctic Circle to a whaling station in the shadows of the mountain known as Blue Ice, where he will make his fortune anew-or be destroyed by his own ambition
