Acclaimed as a born storyteller by critics, Michael McGarrity packs his powerful mystery with Southwestern lore and breath-taking action. In a wicked conspiracy reaching across the Mexican border, Tularosa pits a jaded ex-cop against tight-lipped Army personnel, hired thugs, and smooth-talking outlaws. Forced into retirement by a crippling gunshot wound, Santa Fe policeman Kevin Kerney seeks solitude on a small New Mexico ranch far from the nearest neighbor. But when his godson disappears without a trace into the harsh, high security desert of the White Sands Missile Range, Kerney emerges to search for the young soldier. His probing questions lead him on a perilous journey across the stark, sun-beaten wilderness deep into the shadowy, cutthroat alleys of a lawless border town. With the winning combination of complex, believable characters and a brilliantly crafted plot, it’s easy to see why Publishers Weekly named Tularosa Best Book of the Year. With George Guidall’s dramatic narration, the rugged Southwestern backdrop and each of the colorful inhabitants burst vividly from the page. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “A page-turner written with…clarity and grace.”

    Albuquerque Journal

  • “Few first mysteries are as fresh and powerful as this rich Southwestern tale of tough, credible characters involved in a complex, danger-fraught plot centering around stolen historical artifacts…Blending an air of the old West with some very modern characters, McGarrity delivers atmosphere, action, romance and prime satisfaction.”  

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This accomplished first novel is well plotted with solid dialogue and complex, believable relationships among the flesh-and-blood characters.”  


  • “This is a fast read that also informs a bit about the Southwest, the military, and Native American traditions. An engaging mystery.” 

    School Library Journal

  • “A lean, stylish debut, with a hero who’s equally at home sniffing out evidence and duking it out with the heavies.”  

    Kirkus Reviews

    " OK, another of my favorite "outdoor" mystery series. If you want to feel like you've visited New Mexico, this series will do just that. This is the first Kevin Kerney novel. He's a native from Tularosa, New Mexico,Vietnam vet & ex-sheriff from Sante Fe, until a shooting on the job. But, of course he finds work. Wonderful series. "
