review 1: While the subject matter was rather gruesome throughout the story (psychopath serial killer)the book as a whole was simply another fine Michael McGarrity novel. I enjoyed the process of Kerney and his son Clayton coming to know and respect one another. This was a 2009 publication and currently marks the end of the series even though the book itself closes with connections for a further novel. After this book McGarrity embarked on a trilogy covering the history of the Kerney family and the first two of them were excellent - according to his website he is currently working on that last book of the trilogy, titled "The Last Ranch" and due out in 2016.
review 2: Not one of McGarrity's best. The plot is a manhunt story. You know from the beginning who the bad guy
... moreis. McGarrity spends a lot of ink showing us just how bad a baddie he is--rather too much ink, I thought. And the baddie is not very clever--the police are always nipping at his heels. The excitement doesn't really kick in until the baddie and the cops are stalking each other through the wilderness. less

One of the enjoyable books in this series. I try never to miss one.
A little more gory that his others. I can't wait for the next one
I LOVE all of the NM trivia included in McGarrity's books!!
Modern lawman mystery set in New Mexico.
