TEASER TUESDAY: WHAT THE GROUND CAN'T HOLD BY SHADY COSGROVE

teaser

This week’s teaser comes from What the Ground Can’t Hold by Shady Cosgrove (p98), sent to me for review by Pan Macmillan. The reviews I’ve seen have all been 4-5 star reviews, so I’m hoping this will live up to expectation. Here’s the teaser:

Pedro still hadn’t looked up. ‘How much food do you have?’ Wolfe didn’t reply.

Look out for my review, but in the meantime, here’s the blurb:

What the Ground Can't HoldTwo Americans are presumed dead and nine people are trapped in a cabin after an avalanche in the remote Andes… Among them is Emma, an Australian faced with an impossible decision that could see her parents jailed.  Jack, a teenager obsessed with Jack Kerouac, guided by a skewed moral compass.  Carmen, a tango dancer whose estranged father is dying of cancer.  Pedro, the cabin manager who’s in hiding from those he loves most.  And Wolfe, an American on a deadly family quest. With food supplies dwindling, these unlikely companions are forced to extremes and discover they are bound by more than their surroundings – each has a secret that links them to Argentina’s Dirty War. What the Ground Can’t Hold is a gripping exploration of the ways the past closes in on the present, and destroys the foundations upon which we build our lives.

Sound like something you’d read?
