Hermit's Peak (Kevin Kerney Novels) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in paperback, the fourth “and best in a series that was never less than professional and is now approaching distinguished” (Kirkus Reviews) featuring seasoned Santa Fe cop Ken Kerney.

When Kevin Kerney, deputy chief of the New Mexico State Police, inherits an unexpected windfall of 6,400 acres of high-county land, the last thing he wants to think about is work. But while visiting his new property, he comes across an ailing stray dog that leads him to the butchered bones of a murder victim near the rugged mountain of Hermit’s Peak.

After assigning the case to his subordinates, Kerney returns to Santa Fe to spend time with Sara Brannon, a career army officer who is visiting him on holiday. But his time with Sara must wait when another body is found at Hermit’s Peak. Now, Kerney must unearth the shattering truth about his new land and follow a twisting trail of blood through the majestic landscape of the American Southwest.

Synopsis:

“Michael McGarrity’s early Kevin Kerney novels combined razor-sharp procedural detail with a gripping noirish edge,” raves Booklist. Available for the first time in years is Hermit’s Peak, a seminal novel in the crime fiction series that places New Mexico lawman Kevin Kerney in the pantheon with Tony Hillerman’s heroes—while carving out territory that is distinctly his own across the American Southwest.

While visiting 6,400 acres of high-country land he unexpectedly inherited, Kevin Kerney finds the bones of a murder victim near rugged Hermit’s Peak. Then a second body turns up—and following a twisting trail of blood to unearth the shattering truth may come at a price higher than the deputy chief ever imagined.
