Things are more complicated than they seam as the suspense builds in this wry and enjoyable police procedural. When Santa Fe police chief Kevin Kerney finds the dead body of hotel magnate Clifford Spalding at a mountain ranch, he has a pretty good idea about who to talk to; the list of suspects isn't long. Spalding had a devious wife who was cheating on him with a known thug, and an embittered ex-wife with mental problems. But when the pieces of the puzzle fall into place a little too easily, Kearney's suspicions are aroused. Nationally best-selling author Michael McGarrity's Slow Kill is a stunning addition to an Anthony Award-nominated series the New York Times hails as "robust".

Close but not cigar
Great plot as usual
Excellent plot that really details how official police work takes place and integrating the usually interesting characters that McGarrity describes.
I compare all of McGarrity's books about Kevin Kearney and his family. I also compare Ace Atkins Ranger series.
Well, I can't say enough about Guidall's performance and his ability to get me into the story and love the characters. I listened to him in the Longmire series and he is at his best in stories about the west.
I'm always fascinate with McGarrity's awesome descriptions of the New Mexico landscape which is obviously a beloved locale. But, then he takes us elsewhere with equally descriptive settings that I can easily visualize.
I hope I get to find out more about some of the characters that he introduces, but I am almost finished with the series. I will miss Kevin Kearney and all his funny, interesting, quirky, police buddies. However, I am hoping to get to know his son Patrick as he grows up and more than likely enters law enforcement.
