"This gets good marks for ringing a change or two on the chase thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"McKinzie has talent: a sense of character and dialogue, the imagination to construct a unique and complex plot....Worth reading." (Booklist)
I really enjoyed this book. A good detective thriller with plenty of action. Excellent character development; I actually cared about the lead character...plenty of "shawshank" moments. The climbing descriptions were well done and allow non-climbers to follow along.
Would like to see this authors other books in this series also offered by audible.
This book was very fun to listen to on my daily walks. I would keep walking because I kept wanting to know what happened next. I love the climbing scenes and the feel of life in Wyoming. I hope Audible gets this author's other books because I'd get them all.
If you are a fan of good suspense this is a book you will enjoy. It has excellent dialog, creepy bad guys heroics where they belong and a great ensemble. I used to climb a lot and this book dips into that culture but does not go so far as to be a climbing thriller, climbing is just a prop and a well done one. Corrupt government officials, a cover up, and a dramatic finish that keeps you hanging on to every word are what carry the novel. Highly recommended, exciting book.
