Wyoming DCI Agent Antonio Burns has come to Colorado for a family reunion of sorts. He and his father plan to confront Anton’s brother, Roberto, whose life is teetering on the wrong side of the law. For thirty years a father and his sons have shared an addiction to dangerous, extreme climbing in the world’s most stunning mountain ranges. But Roberto’s addiction (compulsion, fixation, mania?) is testing the bounds of both gravity and natural law. This might just be their last climb together.
On their first night in the valley, violence erupts around the Burns men, as a bitter dispute between local activists and developers leaves a young man dead. When Roberto stands accused, Anton knows he must find the real killer to clear his brother’s name. Now, with a beautiful renegade environmentalist by his side, Anton embarks on a perilous journey through the jagged peaks—where he will come face-to-face with a woman’s buried secrets, a desperate man’s decade-old sin, and an amazing, undiscovered treasure deep within a hidden labyrinth of caves.
