About this title


Assigned to lead the investigation of a multi-million-dollar art theft from New Mexico's state capitol building, Santa Fe policeman Kevin Kerney finds himself face to face with an old enemy with ties to the Mexican government. 35,000 first printing. Tour.


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
