This is McGarrity at the top of his writing craft, and one of the most enjoyable in the Kevin Kerney saga. The counterpoint of Kerney's Army colonel wife's risky assignment overseas to his own pre-retirement consulting job on a movie production set in New Mexico is engaging and skillfully drawn.

I rented as an audiobook for a long driving trip. Too many plot lines and characters to keep straight on the road.

Over the years, like many of you have probably done, I've expanded my author list adding McGarrity and his chief protagonist, Kevin Kerney. Nothing But Trouble kept us up-to-date with the main character but struggled somewhat with plotting. It happens to every author and the Kerney series is no exception. Even so, I still enjoyed the story and I'm looking forward to the next book.

It's a good thing I've already read (and loved) the rest of McGarrity's books, because if I'd read this one first I wouldn't have bothered with any others. It seems that McGarrity couldn't figure out how to flesh out a single compelling plot in enough detail to fill a book, so he wrote two unrelated so-so plots and went from one to the other. The promised investigation into illegal immigrant smuggling didn't go much of anywhere, and although some bad guys got theirs, my reaction at the end was 'is that all?' On the plus side, his descriptions of the New Mexico landscape are wonderful as always, and if you're interested in Ireland there's something for you there too.

I just finished reading Mr. McGarrity s latest book, Nothing But Trouble. I am hooked on Kevn Kearney his character and have read every one of these books. I was in Sant Fe a few years ago and decided to visit the Presidental Museum and Mr. McGarrity was in there autographing books. I had not heard of him but after returning home from vacation I bought the first of the Kevin Kearney series and have been hooked ever sense....

Out of the blue Johnny Jordan asks his old friend Santa Fe Chief of Police Kevin Kerney to be a technical advisor for a movie that is being partially shot on his family¿s ranch. Kerney thinks it will be fun but on his way to the ranch headquarters of the Granite Pass Cattle Company, he finds the body of a young man who has just died. He later is approached by the FBI who tells him that the dead man was an agent working undercover to break up a network of smugglers transporting illegals over the border. Kerney is asked to keep an eye out on the doings of the ranch and report to another undercover contact. Not satisfied with the way the investigation is being handled, Kerney does some sleuthing on his own. --- His wife, a colonel in the US Army attached to the Pentagon, goes outside the chain of command and asks her boss¿s superior to let her go to Ireland where a Vietnam deserter and smuggler is relocating under an assumed name. This is a hot potato because in addition to her quarry, she works to bring in a smuggler with close ties to the presidential administration. The choices she makes changes the dynamics of the Kerney family. --- This is one of the best books in the Kevin Kerney series because readers have a balanced view of the protagonists¿ marriage as they struggle to survive a long distance commuter relationship with the wife sent to various hot spots in the world. Fans who like to get behind the scene and learn how a movie is made will like NOTHING BUT TROUBLE, a police procedural filled with action, intrigue and a touch of romance. The mystery is well thought out with unexpected twists and turns. Michael McGarrity writes his usual realistic and entertaining crime thriller. --- Harriet Klausner
