THE STEADY RUNNING OF THE HOUR

Ashley and Imogen’s love affair, as it unfolds alongside the First World War and the 1924 British Mount Everest Expedition; and Tristan’s quest to inherit the fortune in the 21st century. Before the month is over, Tristan will journey from London archives to Somme battlefields to the remote eastfjords of Iceland, on the trail of a haunting story whose stakes are growing increasingly personal but whose ending may be lost to time.

In 1924, English mountaineer Ashley Walsingham dies on a remote Himalayan peak leaving a fortune to his former lover, Imogen Soames-Andersson, who never claims it.

In 2004, Tristan Campbell receives a letter from the trustees of the Walsingham estate: they have reason to believe Tristan may be a direct heir, entitling him to an inheritance of untold millions. The catch: the trust will expire on its 80th anniversary. Tristan has a month to uncover definitive proof of his secret lineage; if he cannot, the estate will pass in full to the Alpine Society.
