Tularosa is a novel of mystery and suspense. The story of the novel revolves around the greed, romance and grief too.
Kerney, the protagonist of the novel is a former Santa Fe detective forced prematurely to retire by a shot-up leg during stakeout. He returns to detective work when his ex-partner, Navajo Terri Yazzi, asks his help to find his son¿reported as AWOL. The chief of the office of Dona Ana County Sheriff Department appoints Kerney as a lieutenant temporarily to start the investigation in Missile Range with Sara Brannon for the disappearance of Sammy.
The story of the novel takes a new turn when Kerney and Sara begins the investigation on the murderer of Sammy. They find the artifacts that are going to be smuggled and also discover the roots of smugglers. The investigation leads them to the border area of Mexico. The romance between the Kerney and Sara is also shown in the novel in the interesting way during the investigation.
McGarrity uses imagery to show the background and the characters. He has created many characters and each character is described with distinct traits. The many characters in the novel make readers close attention to each character. If the reader misses any of the characters, the reader will miss the clue to the story.
I really enjoy reading this novel. Mystery lover should need to read this book.

Recently read the author's American West Trilogy and really enjoyed all three novels, so now I am back tracking and reading his mysteries. This first one was excellent, fast paced, and rIveting. The novel includes murder, thief, broken bones, fights, horses, valuable artifacts, the Army, betrayers, heroes, romance, and more. Highly recommended. This mystery deserves an A++++

As a huge Tony Hillerman and Southwest mystery fan, I am constantly looking to fill the void. McGarrity keeps the feeling flowing, evoking sense and sensibilities one can only know having truly experienced exploring and loving the Southwest. I'm anxious to follow Kevin Kearney on future adventures.

I had just read Michael McGarrity's latest book "Hard Country" about the old West and this book Tutlarosa is a current day setting for that book's main characters. I very much enjoyed Hard Country and wasn't sure about this modern day mystery, but McGarrity does a great job of keeping the plot moving and has some interesting characters. Tularosa is one of his early books, if not his first, and I want to read more of his books. His descriptions of the New Mexico landscape make you want to visit and also cause you to keep a dictionary handy for some of the terms used to describe the country. I would hightly recommend this book if you like mysteries and the Old West too!
