McGarrity is an excellent author. I love this series, the characters are believable and the mysteries are intriguing.
In a remote New Mexico campground, six people are killed in an apparently senseless murder spree. Deputy State Police Chief Kevin Kerney suspects the slayings weren't random at all- but rather a calculated plot to eliminate on high-profile victim: retired judge Vernon Langsford.
Very attractive series based on a lawman in New Mexico and his family. This is part of the series called the Kevin Kerney Novels. This paragraph applies to all books in this series. The story's are great, but what makes this series stand out is how the country is worked into the story, It's almost as if you are there. The author is a gifted story teller.
Do you need to read this series in order: Yes, it helps a lot. Note that Hard Country and Backlands (and one pending maybe) are the prequels.
Triggers: Cops and police situations, there are rapes, homicides, and crime.
A vicious multiple murder and the shooting of a crooked police officer draw Sheriff Kevin Kerney, a former Santa Fe police detective, into a baffling and dangerous investigation into police corruption extending to the highest levels of state government.
