Description of this Book

People die every year on Mount Everest. This year will be murder. Zan Jensen, on the run from her past, has landed in Kathmandu, where she works as a climbing guide for rich tourists. On the side, she and her partner, Haskell, moonlight as high-altitude graverobbers: extorting money from the families of the many dead bodies they find littering the peaks of the Himalayas to bring them down and send them home. When a body at the summit of Mount Everest shows up with a jackpot of state secrets embedded in its skin, they're put in the crosshairs of a government agency bent on recovering the body and eliminating any witnesses. It's a race to the top of the world, where Zan will fight to find salvation in the deadliest place on Earth. Collecting the two-time Eisner-nominated comic by Christopher Sebela (CROWDED, SHANGHAI RED, WE(L)COME BACK) and artist Ibrahim Moustafa (JAEGER, MOTHER PANIC, JAMES BOND), High Crimes is a high-altitude noir that's been called the perfect thriller, with big stakes, damaged characters, dark pasts, and just the right ratio of humor-to-corpses. (Chelsea Cain, NYT bestselling author of the Archie Sheridan-Gretchen Lowell series.)
