I enjoyed this story, maybe because I am from New Mexico, and have been to most of places in the story. I like the fact that the author keeps it simple, yet interesting.

Synopsis: Prominent gay attorney gunned down by an unknown assailant. Second victim with ties to the criminal justice system is found with her throat slit along with a warning EVERYONE DIES. Next on the madman's list: Kerney, his wife, and their unborn son. Just when you think you know what's what, the next victim changes that. The villain is revealed fairly early on, though.

Michael McGarrity continues with his character of Police Chief Kevin Kerney in EVERYONE DIES. This story finds Kerney and wife, Sara, expecting the arrival of their son, Patrick Brannon Kerney at any moment. At a time when everything should be happy and calm, terror and possible death are awaiting the couple instead. It gets so harrowing that Kerney has to deputize his own wife. Set in Santa Fe and having a great Southwestern flavor, it begins with the murder of a gay attorney and is followed by the vicious murder of Kerney¿s favorite mustang. If this is not enough, a parole officer is found with her throat cut and painting missing from her home. But the final straw comes with the complete destruction of the home of Kerney¿s son and attempted murder of him, his wife and two children. The son, Clayton, was conceived with an Apache girl when Kerney was in college and he was never told of the pregnancy. He only recently found out he was a father. Their relationship is wary at best but Clayton comes to learn that maybe the things his mother told him over the years are less that then full truth. These seemingly unrelated murders are all tied together. Only by using the best CSI techniques and good police work will the Santa Fe police, along with the Apache reservation police, find the clues and determine why and finally who is trying to kill the whole Kerney family. With today¿s interest in CSI shows on television, this story is right on target with its descriptions of the use of forensics and modern day police investigation. EVERYONE DIES is written as an ¿edge of the seat¿ thriller that Michael McGarrity is so known for. It is a book about which you will say ¿I can¿t put it down¿ and one you won¿t want to put down until you find out ¿who-dun-it¿.

Michael McGarrity¿s ¿Everyone Dies¿ is an outstanding, intricately plotted police procedural. With his experience at various law enforcement agencies, Mr. McGarrity writes with a most authoritative voice. There is a lot of credibility between the covers. Mr. McGarrity peoples the novel with a host of characters in support of Santa Fe Police Chief Kevin Kerney. The important and continuing ones are fully developed---you truly get to know and care about them. Ultimately this sophisticated tale is one of revenge. A diabolically clever villain from Chief Kerney¿s past is out to kill Kerney---but not before eliminating those Kerney holds dear. Kerney¿s wife and unborn son are among the targets. A massive manhunt with all New Mexico law enforcement organizations involved is mounted. Kerney's reputation for decency, fairness and integrity prevents the usual inter-agency turf battles. You feel the frustration, disappointment and stimulation brought on by the day-to-day info gathering, false leads and cold trails the cops encounter---and the elation felt as the pieces of the puzzle come together. In a wonderful twist, the inventive and resourceful villain shrewdly sets up an unwitting loner to take the fall. It is a brilliant cover up, foiled only by the patsy¿s own extra-legal activities. One of the best reversals I have experienced. New Mexico is an important character in all the Kerney novels. Mr. McGarrity puts you inside the investigation and the Land of Enchantment. An under appreciated author and series. All eight in the Kevin Kerney series are keepers. Do not hesitate to follow this series.

Santa Fe Chief of Police Kevin Kerney looks forward to the vacation with his beloved pregnant wife US Army MP LTC Sara Brannon. The couple is at odds over her next assignment at the Pentagon only six weeks after their baby is due.

However, their time alone is put on hold when the murdered body of attorney Jack Potter is found on the streets with the crime scene contaminated by a moronic media menace (oxymoron?). Soon others related either by blood or professionally to Kevin are killed with the brazen culprit leaving the message ¿Everyone Dies¿. Kerney and other law enforcement officials in the region put together a massive manhunt seeking to stop a killer who is getting closer and closer to Kevin¿s epicenter, Sara.

Though at times this police procedural feels like Cecil DeMille cast the players, fans will appreciate the energy Michael McGarrity imbues in his hero, support players, and New Mexico that turns a serial killer tale into a personal who-done-it for readers rooting for Kevin. The story line is exciting though the death toll rises rather quickly. The investigation is top rate and the family crisis is fully developed and understandable so that the audience receives a solid episode in a strong series.
