Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Michael McGarrity is the real deal."—Boston Globe

With his dazzling debut, Tularosa, Michael McGarrity was hailed "a born storyteller" (Denver Post)—and introduced readers to a memorable new hero, ex-Santa Fe chief of detectives Kevin Kerney. Now, featuring his vivid feel for the southwest, McGarrity's second gripping novel hurls Kerney onto the toughest case of his life.

Taking a job as a seasonal forest ranger in New Mexico's Gila Wilderness, Kevin Kerney is looking forward to a quiet summer high in the mountains. But the murder of a Mexican tourist, and the discovery of a disoriented old man in the wild, thrust Kerney into an investigation that will carry him back in time to a sixty-year-old feud between two land-rich brothers, Edgar and Eugene Cox.

Enlisting young state game and fish officer Jim Stiles to help solve the crimes, Kerney slowly uncovers evidence connecting the ruthless Cox feud with another suspicious death—and the radical actions of New Mexico's present-day county militia. But new assistant district attorney Karen Cox—Edgar's alluring daughter—is torn between hiding her father's long-buried secret and helping Kerney find the truth. Now someone wants Kerney dead—and the deeper he investigates, the more he may be digging his own grave...

"Exciting...McGarrity blew critical and commercial socks off...with Tularosa...now he goes for the boots."—Dick Adler, Chicago Tribune

"Ingeniously orchestrates character, place, action, history, and relationships in another outstanding novel....McGarrity delivers on the promise of his accomplished debut in Tularosa."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

Synopsis:

Retired Santa Fe policeman Kevin Kerney's investigation into the disappearance of his godson uncovers a military conspiracy that snakes like a desert wind, from the tight-lipped world of White Sands Missile Range to the cutthroat alley of a Mexican border town.W. Norton & Co.

Synopsis:

It's been two years since an on-the-job shooting forced ex-Santa Fe chief of detectives Kevin Kerney to retire. He is drawn back into action when Terry Yazzi, his former partner and the man responsible for his wounds, pleads for Kerney's help. Yazzi's son, a soldier, has disappeared in the barren desert surrounding the White Sands Missile Range.

Kerney's investigation resurrects the long-forgotten thrill of the hunt — and other emotions surface after meeting the tough-but-beautiful Capt. Sara Brannon, the Army's investigating officer. Together, they uncover a crime far greater than an AWOL soldier: a conspiracy of death that snakes from the secretive world of military operations, to the cutthroat alleys of a Mexican border town, leading them to a final, shocking revelation that may cost them both their lives....

Synopsis:

Michael McGarrity's classic debut novel "contains enough plot twists and mystery elements to keep the reader turning the pages as fast as possible" (The Denver Post). Ex-cop Kevin Kerney is nursing the wounds that retired him from the Santa Fe police department until his ex-partner pleads for help in finding his son--a soldier who disappeared into the stark desert. With the help of beautiful yet tough Capt. Sara Brannon, Kerney soon discovers a conspiracy that snakes like a desert wind from the tight-lipped world of the base to the cutthroat alleys of a Mexican border town. The latest novel in the Kevin Kerney series, Everyone Dies, will be published in paperback Summer 2004 by NAL.
