'Two Americans are presumed dead and nine people are trapped in a cabin after an avalanche falls in the remote Andes...
Told from five points of view, What the Ground Can't Hold follows:
Emma, an Australian faced with an impossible decision that could see her parents jailed.
Jack, a teenager obsessed with Jack Kerouac, anti-globalism and sex.
Carmen, a tango dancer whose estranged father is dying of cancer.
Pedro, the cabin manager, who's in hiding from his ex-wife.
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 mesmerising debut about the ways the past closes in on the present, and shatters the foundations upon which we build our lives.' (Publisher's blurb)
