Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The third novel in Michael McGarrity’s “invigorating” (The New York Times), bestselling series featuring seasoned Sante Fe cop Kevin Kerney.

After receiving a call from the newly appointed chief of the New Mexico State Police, ex-Santa Fe chief of detectives Kevin Kerney is thrown into an investigation of a small-town cop-killing no one has been able to solve. His only lead: a homeless schizophrenic’s ramblings about rape and an uncharted place called Serpent Gate.

     Meanwhile, back in Santa Fe, priceless art is stolen from the governor’s office and a beautiful young blonde is murdered in a millionaire’s mansion. Kerney follows a trail of clues to Mexico, where he faces off against an old nemesis with powerful government connections. Unwilling to back down, Kerney must use all of his tenacity, raw courage, and knowledge of the criminal mind in a bloody showdown that may cost him his life.

Synopsis:

Seasoned on every page by his real-life experience as a Sante Fe deputy sheriff, Michael McGarrity’s early Kevin Kerney novels shimmer with “precise realism” (Booklist ), as they immerse readers in the “excitement, color, and character” (The Denver Post ) of life on the job for one of crime fiction’s most unforgettable Southwestern lawmen.

A small-town cop killing remains unsolved, and Kevin Kerney pursues the case’s only lead: a homeless man’s ramblings about an uncharted place called Serpent Gate. Then an art theft at the governor’s offices and the murder of a sexy young blonde lure him back to Sante Fe, then to Mexico, where a face off with an old nemesis awaits—and where Kerney must choose between vengeance, loyalty, and justice.
