Publisher's Summary

In this gripping debut novel, Clinton McKinzie introduces us to Special Agent Antonio Burns, whose routine investigation into the accidental climbing death of a young woman turns into a murder chase that takes him to the heights of Wyoming's wild beauty and the depths of its criminal underworld. Burns is an original and complex hero: an experienced climber, a cop implicated in the shooting deaths of three gang-bangers, brother to a recovering drug-addict and convicted murderer. The case points toward some prominent community members, a fact the local law would rather cover up. But Burns can't let it drop. His toughness and integrity take him from the courtroom to a jaw-dropping chase scene, on an armed ascent up the highest alpine wall in the continental United States.

not just for climbers

I really enjoyed this book. A good detective thriller with plenty of action. Excellent character development; I actually cared about the lead character...plenty of "shawshank" moments. The climbing descriptions were well done and allow non-climbers to follow along.
Would like to see this authors other books in this series also offered by audible.

Great Book

This book was very fun to listen to on my daily walks. I would keep walking because I kept wanting to know what happened next. I love the climbing scenes and the feel of life in Wyoming. I hope Audible gets this author's other books because I'd get them all.
