Nick Grevers and his climbing buddy Augustin are drawn to the Maudit, a remote mountain peak in the Swiss Alps. Documentation on the mountain is scarce, its slopes are eerily quiet and when they enter its valley, they get the ominous sense that they are not alone.


Something is waiting for them…


Not long after, Augustin is dead and Nick wakes up from a coma. His face maimed and wrapped in bandages, a long rehabilitation awaits him, but soon Nick realizes it isn’t just the trauma of the accident that haunts him.


Something has awakened inside of him…


Echo is a harrowing novel of obsession and the destructive force of nature, that takes you on a frightening journey all the way from Amsterdam to the Catskill Mountains in New York and the highest peaks of the Swiss Alps.


"Echo is a mind-crushing novel. From page one, the extremely creepy opening draws you into its story and makes you root for its complex, lifelike and sympathetic characters. Mesmerizingly written – we cannot wait to share Echo with Olde Heuvelt’s thousands of fans.”

– Tom Harmsen, publisher LS Amsterdam




Nick Grevers en zijn klimmaatje Augustin worden aangetrokken door de Maudit, een afgelegen berg in de Zwitserse Alpen. Documentatie over de berg is slecht, het is er ongewoon stil, en als ze de vallei betreden bekruipt ze het onheilspellende gevoel dat ze niet alleen zijn…


Niet veel later is Augustin dood en ontwaakt Nick uit een coma. Hij is verminkt en heeft zijn gezicht in het verband. Een moeizame revalidatie wacht, maar algauw beseft Nick dat het niet alleen het trauma van het ongeluk is dat hem achtervolgt.


Er is iets in hem gewekt…


Echo is een beklemmende thriller over obsessie, bezetenheid en de onverwoestbare kracht van de natuur.
