From the earth's bowels to its highest point, he's chasing danger...What chases him home is even more terrifying.

Simon Newman thinks he's ready to leave his mountain-climbing and caving days behind him. But to get his new website venture off the ground, he needs video. Thrilling video. Exclusive video. He chooses to tackle the Cwm Pot caves in Wales, a notorious site long since closed to the public following a tragic event. Unfortunately for Si, his guide's as unpredictable and dangerous as the watery caverns. He escapes by pure luck. Even luckier, the gruesome clip of his near-death experience goes totally viral.

Eager to capitalize on his Internet fame, Si disregards all warning signs of mental trauma and quickly embarks on another clickbait adventure -- a trip to Everest. But up above eight thousand meters, in the infamous death zone, Si's dubious morals and wits won't be enough to guide him as he -- and his camera -- uncovers the horrifying truth behind a decade-old mystery. A truth that will change him -- and anyone who views the footage he captures -- forever.

A gripping survival tale, first in the caves of Cwm Pot, then on top of Everest. I enjoyed the dual stories of the current Everest climb, and a fatal attempt in the 90s. Interesting character development, most of whom are haunted by someone from their past.

I had higher expectations of this book as Day Four and The Three by Sarah Lotz were both really eerie and creepy. Perhaps the best part of The White Road was the beginning (I won't spoil it). After that, I was led to think there would be a little more suspense, but that did not really happen even at the end of the book....

Overall, it was an average read. I hope her next book will be better!
