Content:

An intelligent alien life form, actually parasites, flee their dieing world to find new hosts. They find the first ones in a little house in the swiss mountains. Cut off from the rest ov the world by avalanches and bad weather, they must fight the danger themselves. Not knowing, who of them has been taken over already.

If you read Agatha Christie's "Ten little Niggers" (aka. "Ten little idians" or "Then there were none"): this is a similar set up.

The cover design, altough it is really nice, has nothing to do with the content of the story, however.
