People die every year on Mount Everest. This year will be murder. Zan Jensen is on the run from her past. For now, she works as a climbing guide for rich tourists in Kathmandu. And on the side, she and her partner Haskell moonlight as high-altitude graverobbers, extorting money from the families of the many dead bodies that litter the peaks of the Himalayas. But when a body shows up at the summit of Mount Everest with a jackpot of state secrets embedded in its skin, they're put in the crosshairs of a government agency bent on recovering the bodyÑand eliminating any witnesses. Collecting the two-time Eisner-nominated comic by CHRISTOPHER SEBELA (CROWDED, SHANGHAI RED, We(l)come Back) and artist IBRAHIM MOUSTAFA (Jaeger, Mother Panic, James Bond), HIGH CRIMES is a high-altitude noir that's been called "the perfect thriller, with big stakes, damaged characters, dark pasts, and just the right ratio of humor-to-corpses" by CHELSEA CAIN, the New York Times bestselling author of the Archie Sheridan and Gretchen Lowell series.

High Crimes is journalist Michael Kodas's gripping account of life on top of the world--where man is every bit as deadly as Mother Nature. In the years following the publication of Into Thin Air, much has changed on Mount Everest. Among all the books documenting the glorious adventures in mountains around the world, none details how the recent infusion of wealthy climbers is drawing crime to the highest place on the planet. The change is caused both by a tremendous boom in traffic, and a new class of parasitic and predatory adventurer. It's likely that Jon Krakauer would not recognize the camps that he visited on Mount Everest almost a decade ago. This book takes readers on a harrowing tour of the criminal underworld on the slopes of the world's most majestic mountain. High Crimes describes two major expeditions: the tragic story of Nils Antezana, a climber who died on Everest after he was abandoned by his guide; as well as the author's own story of his participation in the Connecticut Everest Expedition, guided by George Dijmarescu and his wife and climbing partner, Lhakpa Sherpa. Dijmarescu, who at first seemed well-intentioned and charming, turned increasingly hostile to his own wife, as well as to the author and the other women on the team. By the end of the expedition, the three women could not travel unaccompanied in base camp due to the threat of violence. Those that tried to stand against the violence and theft found that the worst of the intimidation had followed them home to Connecticut. Beatings, thefts, drugs, prostitution, coercion, threats, and abandonment on the highest slopes of Everest and other mountains have become the rule rather than the exception. Kodas describes many such experiences, and explores the larger issues these stories raise with thriller-like intensity.

The professors at the American University of the Southern Balkans, AUSB, have become lazy, complacent and resistant to change, so when a new reforming departmental chair is appointed with a brief to shake them up, they mount a witch hunt to have him fired. At the same time the US president is trying to push forward a plan to replace all NATO airbases with stations of unmanned 'drones' capable of carrying nuclear weapons. He decides to sell the plan secretly and the first country to be approached is the small country in Southeast Europe where AUSB is located. An election is due and the pro-western prime minister must win if the plan is to succeed. The CIA agent who fixes the election is also the provost of the American university. Two political threads - the high crimes of government and the low stakes bitter politics of the university common room - are interwoven in this satire of intrigue, double-dealing and political corruption.
