MEA Shadow Over The Alps by Mabel Esther Allan


A happy group of Sixth Formers were taken to Switzerland for a holiday. It seemed incredible that anyone should wish one of the party dead, and yet there were small but tarrying pointers. And the atmosphere of menace increased on the Wildenhorn glacier. With the railway out of action they became virtual prisoners on the Rosenzenhorn . . . And then came the climax – a dangerous, terrifying moment on a pinnacle of ice and snow.

Our extra material includes an Introduction by Jennifer Shelley, Letters about Shadow Over the Alps, and a short story, ‘Winter Sports Holiday’.

Shadow Over the Alps was published on 15 August 2023.
