    You can smell and feel the crisp air of New Mexico as you read Michael McGarrity's books about would-be rancher and occasional lawman Kevin Kerney, which real- life ex-Santa Fe County deputy sheriff McGarrity fills with his expertise and talent. Like its predecessors--
    Tularosa and Mexican Hat, available in paperback--this third Kerney story centers on an iconic piece of land. At first Kerney thinks that Serpent Gate exists only in the mind of seriously schizophrenic Robert Cordova, the sole witness to the murder of a small-town policeman. But Cordova's obsessions with rape and murder turn out to have strong links to the real world. Another story thread brings Kerney back to work in Santa Fe, where the obsessions--expensive art, crooked politics, and high-profile crime--are sleeker but no less deadly. -- Dick Adler --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.



    Reader Reviews
    Following the Backtrail, March 27, 2003 Reviewer: Charles J. Marr from Cambridge Springs, Pa USA I came to this novel by way of McGarrity's later work and it is clear he gets better as he goes along. This tale does bog down a bit in th mountain snows and border drug culture and their multiple complications. Here and there bits of gratuitous violence mar the scene. I don't mind violence in a thriller, but some of this just does not seem to really move the plot. Despite that, if you have read some of his later novels with pleasure, it is worth picking this one up. Why not read this book? The three hundred plus pages make for a good two evening's read. Sure beats the T.V. and you can't beat the price.
