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!

Good series

I enjoy listening to the series by Michael McGarrity. These books are a series so therefore, he doesn't necessarily tie everything together before one book ends. In other words, if you enjoy the book you keep coming back for more. I like the main character Kearney. I envision him as a John Wayne and I appreciate the way that McGarrity lets us have little glimpses into his past as well as he current situations. I would recommend these books to anyone who enjoys reading a good detective mystery.
