“Michael McGarrity's early Kevin Kerney novels combined razor-sharp procedural detail with a gripping noirish edge,” raves Booklist. Available for the first time in years is Hermit's Peak, a seminal novel in the crime fiction series that places New Mexico lawman Kevin Kerney in the pantheon with Tony Hillerman's heroes—while carving out territory that is distinctly his own across the American Southwest.

While visiting 6,400 acres of high-country land he unexpectedly inherited, Kevin Kerney finds the bones of a murder victim near rugged Hermit's Peak. Then a second body turns up—and following a twisting trail of blood to unearth the shattering truth may come at a price higher than the deputy chief ever imagined.
