Detailed Product Description
New York, 2003, 1st edition. 311 pp. New hardcover with dust jacket.

A thriller by a well known author, who couples stalker and killers in Jackson Hole with terrific climbing sequences on the Grand Teton. Hardcover with dust jacket. The rough-hewn mountain man with the sensitive soul is always an appealing hero, and McKinzie's Antonio Burns (Edge of Justice, Point of Law) has the right stuff to keep readers turning the pages of this adrenaline-charged thriller.

Wyoming Special Agent Burns is protecting prosecutor Cali Morrow from an alleged stalker, but the most dangerous moments occur high above the picture postcard town of Jackson Hole, when Cali, the daughter of a glamorous movie star, and Burns, an experienced skier and climber, escape their romantic and professional stresses in a dangerous game of chicken that's much more interesting than the somewhat pedestrian plot whose denouement won't surprise any careful reader.

Between the bad press he's gotten for an arrest that turned into a bloodbath and a girlfriend who's keeping their relationship on ice, it's no wonder Burns heads for the peaks whenever he can. The liveliest dialog is between Antonio and his renegade brother, an escaped criminal whose high altitude escapades pose greater danger to both Cali and Antonio than her stalker--most fans will be rooting fort Roberto to pay his debt to society, Antonio to ignore his girlfriend's pleas to join her in domestic bliss at sea level, and McKinzie to bring the Burns boys back for a sequel.

Haunted by a reputation he earned by killing three men under questionable circumstances, Antonio Burns finds himself scorned by good cops and admired by bad ones. Unable to shake the tag of “QuickDraw,” Burns has stepped closer to the edge of society while still doing the job he’s paid to do and loving a woman who doesn’t understand him--and may not want him anymore. And with his charismatic but dangerously antisocial brother, Roberto, in trouble with the law, Burns has to manage his loyalties carefully: He is a cop. Berto is a fugitive. And they’d die for one another.

 
When Burns is sent to protect Wyoming prosecutor Cali Morrow, a former ski racer being threatened by a stalker, it seems like an easy job. But Cali is the beautiful daughter of one of America’s hottest movie stars, and the stalker may well be a man working on Burns’s side of the law. Antonio has a hard time resisting the woman he’s supposed to be protecting--and stomaching the social swirl of those who make Jackson Hole their playground. With the feds closing in on his brother, Burns can feel his own personal lifeline slipping out of his grasp--until he himself becomes the target of a madman.

Trial by Ice and Fire combines extreme menace with extreme action--from a breathless ski adventure down a near-vertical ice chute to a night climb up the Grand Teton above the Snake River. In this powerhouse of a thriller, Clinton McKinzie brings us characters who are living on the edge, a plot that delivers one body-slamming surprise after another, and a novel that is his most fully realized and exciting to date.
