AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'While on work experience with a TV news crew, 16-year-old Cobey Myles suddenly finds herself in front of the camera, when a skiing accident puts the glossy blonde reporter out of action. After covering a breaking news story about two bodies being uncovered in the ice, Cobey finds that her brief experience on national TV is proving a boon for her budding modelling career. From the lower rungs of the career ladder she sees doors open and big opportunities presenting themselves, landing her work in magazines and TV commercials.

'The thrill of her rapidly developing and lucrative modelling prospects gradually comes into conflict with her growing interest in the story of what really happened to those missing mountaineers twenty years ago. Cobey is ultimately faced with a hard choice: leave the story alone and seize upon the success she is enjoying, or reveal the truth and risk consequences that may endanger her career - or her life.' (From publisher's website)
