How many times can you tempt death before fear eats you up?
Depends how much you need the money.
In over his head again and again, hanging above a death fall from an ice cliff in a blinding New England blizzard, or trying to stand steady on the wing of an airplane 2000 feet above the Pacific Ocean, or looking down at the surging water from the cliffs at Acapulco, or from the top of the in-run above a backcountry ski jump, in Adrenaline Soup, Craig Vetter’s ability to put his fear into the readers’ bones is what brought Dick Schaap to call him “The George Plimpton of death sports.” These stories will make you shiver while you sit in the hot summer sun.
