Book review: The Silent Land, by Graham Joyce

Zoe and Jake are on a skiing holiday in the Pyrenees when they are caught in an avalanche. Jake manages to dig his wife out and they go back to their hotel, but find it deserted, together with the rest of the village. They assume this is because of an avalanche warning and wait for rescue, but no one comes. So they decide to make their own way down the mountain but each time they try they are frustrated. Their compass doesn't work away from the village and whatever road they follow brings them back to the village. Their telephone calls for help, whether locally or to friends in Britain, go unanswered. [More]
