    I enjoyed this book, but comparing to others in the series I would put this in last place Michael McGarrity wrote Kevin Kerney differently in this novel Maybe he wanted to change the character a bit now that he is married and has all the things he was searching for in books 1 4 I don t know why, but Kerney is not as tough and manly as he has been in the other books and I hope he returns to the manly cowboy he was in the earlier ones That isn t the only thing that is different though, can t q I enjoyed this book, but comparing to others in the series I would put this in last place Michael McGarrity wrote Kevin Kerney differently in this novel Maybe he wanted to change the character a bit now that he is married and has all the things he was searching for in books 1 4 I don t know why, but Kerney is not as tough and manly as he has been in the other books and I hope he returns to the manly cowboy he was in the earlier ones That isn t the only thing that is different though, can t quite put my finger on it but he is writing Kerney s thought s and speech differently in this one Oh, well, on to book 6

    When I can find a book where the story is situated in the Southwest, particularly, New Mexico, I put it on my TBR list A family member lived in Albuquerque for several years and we fell in love with the area Love the people, the culture, the food and the landscapes This novel describes the scenery of the area with such good detail that the reader can visualize where the action is taking place.Kevin Kerney is an experienced detective who is looking forward to retirement when someone commits a When I can find a book where the story is situated in the Southwest, particularly, New Mexico, I put it on my TBR list A family member lived in Albuquerque for several years and we fell in love with the area Love the people, the culture, the food and the landscapes This novel describes the scenery of the area with such good detail that the reader can visualize where the action is taking place.Kevin Kerney is an experienced detective who is looking forward to retirement when someone commits a series of murders in a short period Kerney believes that the murder spree was meant to cover the death of one man, a judge who was shot twice with a gun with a silencer in the middle of a campground The other murders wereremote and the killer used only one bullet per victim.The case becomesandcomplex as information unfolds about the people involved The focus appears to be on one family Kerney realizes that two earlier deaths in the family may be related to the murder spree As the investigation progresses it appears that a son with alcohol and drug problems may be the killer However, Kerney is uncertain, particularly when the son commits suicide leaving a video recording of his death and proclaiming his innocence.There are interesting personal sidelines, too Kerney discovers he has a son and grandchildren And, we meet his wife, who has a military career that she intends to continue after his retirement All this adds up to a very good read I need to findnovels by this author as I so like this character

    I liked this rather early edition of the Kevin Kearney series Lots of good police procedural work and good intertwining of Kearney s personal life All in all, a very enjoyable story, despite the depravity it ultimately revealed.

    A retired judge who is working as a volunteer park guide is shot and killed in his RV at the park Because of the judge s record and prominence, Kearney is asked by his friend Andy Baca of the New Mexico State Police to investigate Edit Ha ha, some of this is wrong I read this book and 4 on a vacation and I can no longer remember which part belongs to which book This is because the whole series is basically one long book and I m binge reading it like I m binge watching a drama series where A retired judge who is working as a volunteer park guide is shot and killed in his RV at the park Because of the judge s record and prominence, Kearney is asked by his friend Andy Baca of the New Mexico State Police to investigate Edit Ha ha, some of this is wrong I read this book and 4 on a vacation and I can no longer remember which part belongs to which book This is because the whole series is basically one long book and I m binge reading it like I m binge watching a drama series where after a while you can t remember which events happen on which particular episode Kearney is further vested as the Assistant Chief of Police over the heads of many assistants for the job This serves as the back story This is only a minor backstory as Kearney decides to leave the job once the investigation is over The other backstories are Kearney s relationship with his newly discovered son, his inheritance from Emma Henderson and love life with Sara You don t really need to read the previous 4 books to get these backstories but it s highly recommended that you start from book 1.Spoilers below.The actual plot begins with the investigation of the judge s family I m not satisfied with what is basically the only direction of this investigation like a 90 10 effort into family vs other possibilities It seems a bit far fetched and I thought a normal investigation would start by looking at randos Still the book is a fairly good book because it stays with the strengths of McGarrity s writing the police procedural and the development of the characters in the series but I never really bought into the storyline I thought at some point one of the other detectives would come up with something but the story stayed with the family pretty much all the way

    A good book in this series, with a somewhat disturbing reservation The story is very complex, but our protagonist Kerney manages to get it all sorted in the end The crime is cleverly committed to mask the killer, but the investigation revealsunderlying crimes, complicating the process Kerney is a likable character with a human side Nearing retirement, he faces some decisions about the future, and encounters some surprises along the way.My major reservation with this book is that it d A good book in this series, with a somewhat disturbing reservation The story is very complex, but our protagonist Kerney manages to get it all sorted in the end The crime is cleverly committed to mask the killer, but the investigation revealsunderlying crimes, complicating the process Kerney is a likable character with a human side Nearing retirement, he faces some decisions about the future, and encounters some surprises along the way.My major reservation with this book is that it doesn t ring true for an author who apparently has extensive history living in New Mexico It may be bad editing, but ultimately it must be the authors responsibility to get the basics right There were three that I noted instances of east west confusion, which should not happen The first I noted was a sunset turning the San Andres mountains amber, which should be very difficult because the point of view is from the east side of the mountains, so they should be grey at best The second case is that Creede Colorado is said to be NE of Alamosa, while in fact it is WNW of Alamosa It is listed as being in the Rockies, but Alamosa is at the edge of the flat land to the east of the Rockies The third case was minor a storm arising in the Gulf of Mexico fading at Ruidoso after a rapid pass through the SW quadrant of NM Clearly impossible Should be the SE quadrant of NM

    Mr McGarrity can write a good book Usually I can figure out Who Done It way before the end of the book I was kept guessing with this one till the end I had my suspicions but nothing was adding up for me I really like the way MaGarrity uses his experiences, the local color and scenery to wave his tales I enjoy reading book series and so far these Kevin Kerney mysteries have been very captivating.

    Kerney is married and is looking forward to retirement, but the murder of 6 campers in what appears to be a spree killing has put a damper on his plans Lots of twists and turns in this one as Kerney tries to solve the murder of a judge, one of the apparent spree murder victims, and figure out what he wants to do with his life.This series continues to entertain.
