Publisher's Summary

When a fire in an abandoned fruit stand in rural Lincoln County reveals the murdered body of a woman gone missing from Sante Fe years ago, Police Chief Kevin Kerney finds himself cooperating with his estranged son, a man he hardly knows, Deputy Sheriff Clayton Istee. While Kerney digs into the woman's past, hoping to find clues that will lead to a credible suspect, Clayton must unravel two more homicides that seem on the surface totally unrelated. As Kerney chases down clues that raise questions about the legitimacy of a highly regarded modeling and talent agency, Clayton works to discover the identity of a murder suspect alleged to have ties to prostitution and illegal gambling.Set against the backdrop of the high mountains of southern New Mexico, where gambling is big business and private sexual encounters for VIPs can be discreetly arranged, Kerney and Clayton must go up against the rich and politically powerful opponents who are willing to protect their reputations at all costs.

What Happened McGarrity? Not Up to Par

I've long been a McGarrity fan -- enjoying all the Keven Kearney books so far -- until this one. It missed the mark by a mile. The story was just "meh" and the ending so abrupt and inconclusive as to make me think my audio file was missing many minutes at the end. Dick Hill's narration is something you have to get used to or not; which just makes him another annoying issue with this particular book. I guess I made a big gamble in using a credit on this one -- and I lost big!

The Big Gamble it wasn't

It wasn't a big gamble buying this book. McGarrity really is a top notch author. Some earlier reviews focused on Dick Hill's narration. I will give this to you he isn't George Guidall. That being said Dick Hill is a very good reader. If Hill had started the series no one would have had any concerns with his narration. Yes Guidall is simply fantastic but Hill isn't bad.
This wasn't my favorite story line but it was very good. The relationship of father and son was disturbing to me. He should had been furious with his mother not his dad. She is the one who kept the secret. Enjoyable read.
