    Love the descriptions of the NM locations. I want to go back.

  • whodo

    Hard Country was good but rather depressing at times, Backlands was very good. Can’t wait for the next one.

  • Penelope Gonzalez

    I met Mr. McGarrity when we both lived in Eldorado, NM, 13 miles out of Santa Fe. I have all of his Kerney books , autographed bu the author, All except Death Song & Dead or alive. I love Kerney, Sara & Patrick.
    My purchase will complete my collection.
    Thank you Michael for taking me back to NM & sharing the special spirituality only found there.

  • Robert M.

    I spent my childhood in Santa Fe in the 1950’s; moved back again in 1991, and built a home in Eldorado. I’m now back in Texas, but can’t get New Mexico out of my system. Not only are Michael McGarrity’s books a wonderful series of mysteries, they take me back to the land that I have always loved. I’ve read each book in order, and just finished Death Song, so can’t wait to finish his remaining classics.
