Do not read this book first! Mr. McKinzie has written 5 books and this is the last in the series, I read it again once I finished the first 4. Set in Wyoming, the main character is in law enforcement and a climber. The descriptions of the landscapes and of climbing are great. The order of his books are 1. The Edge of Justice, 2. Point of Law, 3. Trial by Ice and Fire, 4. Crossing the Line and 5. Badwater. Though any of these can stand alone, they are much more fun read in order. Mr. McKinzie is ...more

Clinton McKinzie is an enigma. The plot of his books are always excellent and the setting is some of the most beautiful country in the U.S. However, the constant dramatic shift in the life of his main character Antonio Burns is getting to be annoying. It seems every book Anton has a new dog, a new love interest and hid job is unstable.

Overall I enjoy the stories but would like to see more stability in the life of the main character.
This entry into the Antonio Burns series isn't quite as strong as the others, simply because the level of tension isn't quite as high--there isn't as much at risk. But McKinzie is a strong writer and Antonio Burns is a character you root for even when he's being stupid. Do start this series at the beginning, though.

I haven't read the other books in this series, but this was a gripping story with interesting twists. This book was hard to put down. It's definitely a man's book, with lots of descriptions of rock climbing as well as violence and crimes. But it's well written and a very good read.
