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.More
"This gets good marks for ringing a change or two on the chase thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"McKinzie has talent: a sense of character and dialogue, the imagination to construct a unique and complex plot....Worth reading." (Booklist)
