this book is great for anyone who is into action, mystery, and thrillers. The author Michael McGarrity I believe is one of the best authors ever writen books that captivate that you do not want to leave the book down until you finish.Was this review helpful?

Mcgarrity does it again!
Once again Michael McGarrity does a superb job of transfixing you into the world of Kevin Kerney. A murder with the wonderful twist of a 30 year old mystery. The cast of characters is as interesting as ever, and the plot keeps you rivited. I couldn't put the book down. The only problem I have is that I read it so quick, now I have to wait for his next book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

refreshingly police procedural
Santa Fe Police Chief Kevin Kerney flies to Bakersfield, California so that he can buy quarter horse breeding stock at the Double J Ranch near Paso Robles. When fellow guest septuagenarian Clifford Spalding is found dead, San Luis Opiso Sheriff¿s Department Sergeant Elena Lowery finds it interesting that the victim and the visiting cop have ranches in the Santa Fe area. She believes this is an unlikely coincidence especially when one considers that Clifford¿s much younger spouse Claudia, could easily know and ride horses on a New Mexico range with Kevin. Other questionable items also surface.---- Knowing he is a person of interest and seeing the path the official investigation is going, Kevin makes inquiries into the history of the victim and learns that Clifford¿s first wife Alice believes that their son did not die in Vietnam three decades ago. Kevin believes her and wonders why the son was hidden from his mother. He seeks a link between then and now. Elena concludes Kevin is innocent; they join ranks as both suspect the current wife and someone else, a local cop most likely, tampered with the victim¿s medicine, but to prove homicide will be difficult.---- The latest Kerney police procedural refreshingly takes him out of New Mexico (and not just California as he also goes east on this investigation), makes Kevin a suspect, and has the less experienced Lowery lead the inquiries. The story line is fast-paced as the current case points towards murder and a tie in to events from thirty years ago. Fans also see Kerney prepare for retirement (hopefully not for a dozen or so more books) as he buys his first breeding stock. Michael McGarrity will receive accolades for this brisk investigative tale.---- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
