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.
Wat!?
I recently discovered this author via an off-hand remark by another reviewer for another book. She recommended this series featuring Antonio Burns and the Walt Longmire series featuring, guess who. The latter was a decent book worth reading, and my review for same suggested a slow beginning and middle followed by on interesting conclusion. This book, however, plays in a different league. This is an excellent book and a very welcome addition to the genre.

I rarely describe plots because others beat me to it. Since this one is lightly reviewed suffice it to say that Antonio (Anton) Burns is a Special Agent with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. Like any good protagonist he has little but contempt for authority (save his immediate superior- a stand-up guy)and is constantly in conflict with many of them. He's asked to investigate what is assumed to be an accidental death in a rock climbing incident but soon learns that something doesn't compute. And thus begins an adventure that I would think any literate reader will enjoy. Since the story is set in Montana and Colorado and Burns is a rock climber people who like the outdoors will be especially happy, and if you are a rock climber (not a requisite) so much the better. There are some very good rock climbing parts that totally ring true. This is a very fine book and already ranks way up on my list of must-reads. I'm kind of jaded and rarely drop everything to finish a book but I did with this one. In fact, I rarely read two books in a row featuring the same protagonist but I'm making an exception here. Do yourself a favor and put this order at the top of your to-do list.

The official first book of the Antonio Burns series has Anton, a Wyoming state narcotics agent, investigating a supposedly accidental death in Laramie. Laramie is quite the hopping place when Anton arrives in the middle of the "trial of the century," as two brothers are being tried for the brutal murder of a woman who was believed to be on the verge of turning them in for dealing drugs. The death Anton is investigating is supposed to be an open-and-shut accident case, as the girl fell off the rock face of Vedauwoo. He has been called in because of a possible conflict of interest, as the dead girl was climbing with the son of Nathan Karge, the prosecutor, who is certain to be the state's next governor. Unfortunately, her death doesn't look like much of an accident to Anton, as she fell on her face but has a suspicious contusion on the back of her head. Equally suspicious is the lackadaisical job the coroner did with the autopsy, destroying valuable evidence. Anton meets with resistance at every stage of his investigation, not only from the local cops, but all the way to the state attorney general's office. Since Nathan Karge has a lot to lose if his son is implicated in a murder, he's not very happy about Anton's investigation. Neither is the small climbing cult in Laramie, run by thuggish Billy Heller, a climber past his prime who surrounds himself with adoring younger climbers, some of them girls who endure his rough sexual practices in order to get their hands on the methamphetamine he sells.

Most of the local police are hostile toward Anton and his investigation, and any of the climbers Anton talks to seem to wind up dead. That their deaths all bear similarities to the death Karge is pinning on the brothers convinces him that Heller, not the brothers, are guilty of that crime. But, since implicating the chief prosecutor's son in that crime will destroy his career, Karge pulls every string he can to hamper the investigation. In addition, Anton's wild brother Roberto has just escaped from prison, and the authorities believe Anton helped him out. Anton only has a few allies, his boss, a big black deputy, a lovely reporter, and his big dog Oso. Everyone else seems to want him suspended or dead.

This book bore a lot of similarities to "Point of Law," its prequel which was published second, but changes a few details from the back story. I was a little disappointed we didn't get to see more of Roberto, Anton's wild brother, who in this book is not just a felon, he's doing time for manslaughter. However, his character rang true, as did the personalities of both Anton and Oso. It was no secret who the bad guys were, but there was a bit of suspense as to what actually happened the night the girl fell off the cliff, and I turned the pages quickly to find out what was going to happen next. This is an entertaining series of thrillers, and I look forward to more.

This novel about a cop named Antonio Burns is a wonderful and quick read. I could'nt put it down and have now read the entire series. Each installment is equally as good and I highly recommend all of them. The characters are brought to life in such a way that the reader feels like they are real people. Writing style and plot are wonderful. No downside to this novel at all.
Moronydit
The author's passion for mountain climbing turns out to be the near perfect element to ignite an explosive and impressive first novel. It distinguishes the main character and leads to a gripping climax. C.J. Box's "Pickens" comes to mind. There is ample opportunity to further develop the main character and II look forward to the next MckInzie effort.

I'm sure I miss a lot of really great stories due to my inability to get past an author's poor grammar or punctuation skills. However, in this case, it's the first person, present tense style that turned me cold by page 2. I'd hope it was a short excursion into the moment, but thumbing through the book showed me that it persisted until the bitter end. If you don't mind this writing style, I'm sure it's worth a read.

A good mystery an adventure book. A well crafted book that combines a murder mystery with rock climbing. This is the first in a series. Good plot and character development.
