His novel unravels a tale of passion, legacy and courage reaching across the 20th century. In 1924, the fictitious English mountaineer Ashley Walsingham dies attempting to summit Mount Everest, leaving his fortune to his former lover, Imogen Soames-Andersson, whom he has not seen in seven years.

Ashley's solicitors search in vain for Imogen, but the estate remains unclaimed. Nearly 80 years later, new information leads the same law firm to Tristan Campbell, a young American who could be the estate's rightful heir. If Tristan can prove he is Imogen's descendant, the inheritance will be his. But with only weeks before Ashley's trust expires, he must hurry to find the evidence he needs.

Justin Go attended the University of California at Berkeley, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in history and art history. He also holds a masters in English from University College London. He has lived in Tokyo, Paris, London, New York City and Berlin.
