Set in Wyoming, The Edge of Justice, prominently features mountain climb. The lead character, Antonio Burns, is a special agent who lives for climbing mountains. Burns is facing a multitude of problems including trouble for shooting three drug dealers in self-defense, his brother who is in jail, and protecting a couple of innocent people from receiving the death penalty. All of this leads to the son of the DA, who enjoys the party life a bit too much and likes to surround himself with drugs and pretty women.
If you’re really into mountain climbing, this novel might work for you. As for me, I didn’t much care for it. The plot was thin. The characterization was weak, and the action is overly melodramatic. I was never able to get into the novel. I would advise passing on this.
