Description


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 Wyoming’s mountains and the gritty underbelly of crime, here is a gut-wrenching debut novel that features one of recent fiction’s 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 woman’s 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.

PRAISE FOR THE EDGE OF JUSTICE

“McKinzie knows his wild Wyoming, and also how to keep things moving briskly…. [The Edge of Justice] gets good marks for ringing a change or two on the chase thriller, and we’re now promised a prequel, starring the same gutsy hero.”
-Publishers Weekly

“An adrenaline-pumping, heart-pounding thrill ride with a terrifying climax that left me clenching for a handhold.”
--Tess Gerritsen

“One of the strongest debuts of the year.”
--Chicago Tribune
