Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed as a born storyteller by critics, Michael McGarrity packs his powerful mystery with Southwestern lore and breathtaking action. In a wicked conspiracy reaching across the Mexican border, Tularosa pits a jaded ex-cop against tight-lipped Army personnel, hired thugs, and smooth-talking outlaws. Forced into retirement by a crippling gunshot wound, Santa Fe policeman Kevin Kerney seeks solitude on a small New Mexico ranch far from the nearest neighbor. But when his godson disappears without a trace into the harsh, high-security desert of the White Sands Missile Range, Kerney emerges to search for the young soldier. His probing questions lead him on a perilous journey across the stark, sun-beaten wilderness deep into the shadowy, cutthroat alleys of a lawless border town.
With the winning combination of complex, believable characters and a brilliantly crafted plot, it’s easy to see why Publishers Weekly named Tularosa Best Book of the Year. With George Guidall’s dramatic narration, the rugged Southwestern backdrop and each of the colorful inhabitants burst vividly from the page.

Would like to hear the entire series!

I enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm a long time Tony Hillerman and more recently Craig Johnson fan, and love George Guidall's narration. And New Mexico is my favorite vacation spot. I started with Hard Country which actually is McGarrity's most recent book but gives a nice background for the Kevin Kerney series (it's Kerney's old family history). Now I've just finished Tularosa, the first in the Kevin Kerney series. Unfortunately, Audible doesn't have the entire series....so I'm scrambling with Amazon and area libraries to fill in the gaps. Please Audible, get busy! Thanks.

Out West Meets US Army, GREAT STORY!

My husband and I listened to this one on a road trip over a long weekend. And we both loved it. Caught ourselves carrying the ipod to bed with us to sneak in a few more minutes each night after our family went to sleep . . . The descriptions of the beautiful western landscapes were exceptional, as well as the Indian customs, and it added to the story of Sammy, the soldier who supposedly went AWOL. For someone who has only driven through these sparse, ruggedly beautiful states in the western U.S., I found myself longing to go back, and really SEE them, to stop and drink the beauty in. The history of White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico was equally interesting to us. And what we as a people have done to our native American brothers and sisters always brings pain to me. Tularosa is a great book. Don't miss it. And I have already added Mexican Hat, the next one in the series to my wish list.
