Praise
"A lean stylish debut, with a hero who's equally at home sniffing out evidence and duking it out with the heavies."
"Mystery fans shouldn't miss "Tularosa". Michael McGarrity's first entry in the field moves like lightning. An ex-cop, he knows what he's writing about--and how to write it."
"A vivid and exciting debut. "Tularosa's" Kevin Kerney is a modern cowboy--laconic and introspective, tough but soft-hearted--and he's one hell of an investigator. Saddle up and join him for a non-stop ride."
From the Publisher
Annotation Kevin Kerney is asked by his ex-partner--the one whose drinking got Kerney shot when they were on the Santa Fe police force--to help him find his missing son, Sammy Yazzi. Sammy has disappeared from the White Sands Missile base, and drawings he left behind indicate that he had been visiting the off-limits Indian Wells area. When they ride out to look for evidence, they discover Sammy's body and the hidden booty of rare antiques that may have cost him his life.
First Line Early-morning clouds, shreds of a heavy late-night rainstorm, masked the Ortiz Mountains.
Editors Note Tularosa--the place of reddish willows in Spanish--holds the key to Kevin Kerney's past and his future. Ex-chief of detectives in the Santa Fe Police Department, retired early by a shot-up leg, Kerney is drawn back into action when Navajo Indian Terry Yazzi, his ex-partner and the man responsible for his injuries, asks him to locate his son, reported missing from the high-security White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico.To find Sammy Yazzi, Kerney must track clues that lead deep into the histories of the region--Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo--and, surprisingly, into his own family's ranching past. And he must deal with the complicated feelings triggered by the army's investigator, Captain Sara Brannon, a fiery young officer as formidable as she is attractive. As Sammy Yazzi's trail spirals into a web of murder, treason, and the smuggling of priceless artifacts, Kerney and Sara travel an accelerating arc across the New Mexico scene--from the boutique-ridden plaza of Santa Fe, through the sharp-edged beauty of the high desert, to bordertown gambling dens--to a final confrontation in which, both wounded and at risk, they must fight for their lives and for each other against opponents who hold all the cards.
