Synopses & Reviews
Combining high-altitude climbing action with sizzling courtroom drama and raw tension, The Edge of Justice
is a thriller like no other. Set amid the towering beauty of Wyomings mountains and the gritty underbelly of crime, here is a gut-wrenching debut novel that features one of recent fictions most original and complex heroes: Special Agent Antonio Burns--climber, cop, brother, son, risk-taker.
A climber by nature, a cop by trade, Antonio has come to Laramie to investigate a young womans deadly plunge. But as he digs deeper into the case, Antonio is certain he has found a murder…and a stunning connection to the trial of two men about to be executed for a crime they did not commit. With a beautiful reporter sharing his investigation, he must make a harrowing ascent: up a forbidding mountainside--to bring a killer down from the deadliest kind of high.
