Publisher Comments:

In a remote New Mexico campground, six people are killed in an apparently senseless murder spree. Deputy State Police Chief Kevin Kerney suspects the slaying wasn’t random at all—but rather a calculated plot to eliminate one high-profile victim, retired judge, Vernon Langsford. In piecing together the judge’s shocking past, Kerney discovers the victim’s predilection for sexual indiscretions, a history of family betrayal and greed, and a dark marriage that ended mysteriously and violently. But as Kerney gets closer to the heart of a terrible crime, it’s a woman from his own past who emerges with a stunning secret of her own.

Typical McGarrity. Tightly plotted. Surprise ending. Good characterizations. Using a screwed up family as the main plot device a little hackneyed.

Edward Hahn, May 28, 2011 (view all comments by Edward Hahn)
Deputy New Mexico State Police Chief Kevin Kerney is close to ranching full time. Unfortunately someone goes on a killing spree at a campground. Six people are dead. Kerney suspects there was only one target, Vernon Langsford, a retired judge and businessman. In order to find the truth, Kerney begins to look into Langsford's life and in the process uncovers multiple motives to kill Langsford. Kerney also becomes a target and begins to doubt his decision to go back to ranching. In a sub-plot and complicating things is the state of his relationship to his new wife, Army Captain Sarah Bannon who is away on assignment.

Typical McGarrity. Tightly plotted. Surprise ending. Good characterizations. Using a screwed up family as the main plot device a little hackneyed.
