    Filled with breakneck action and authentic detail, Hermit's Peak is Michael McGarrity's most involving novel yet.

    "Human Side of a Tough Business"
    Overall

    After 25 years in law enforcement I was not interested in detective, mystery, or who-done-it books as lacking realism of the business until I was introduced to Patricia Cromwell, Tony Hillerman, Dana Stabenow, and Jonathan Kellerman. I now am a voracious and critical reader looking for accuracy, detail, and insight into the people in stories. Five stars doesn't seem to adequately rank the intensity and humanity Michael McGarrity has penned into this story - the insight of the individual triumphs and dispair of the characters interwoven with the grandeur of the Southwest, portrayed in the Hermit Peak Region of New Mexico, places this volume equally amongst the best of the authors previously mentioned. I sincerely hope we will soon see another such work by this talented author among the Audible Selections.

    Story

    The story was an edge of your seat thriller. The narration was superb contributing to the intensity of the story. The final face off between Chief Davenport and the escaped killer convict Dick LaChaise is electrifying. Audible dot Com is the only way to experience the intensity and adrenal action of John Sandford's Novels.

    Award-winning author Mark Spragg writes about the American West with unmatched skill and vision. In Bone Fire Spragg weaves the tale of Ishawooa, Wyoming, a city marred by the realities of modern life. Sheriff Crane Carlson is having enough trouble with his pot-addled and alcoholic wife when he finds a teen murdered in a meth lab. Violence seems to be exploding all over the small town, but even as the situation spirals out of control, Carlson finds moments of compassion and beauty.

    Story

    This novel brought back such childhood memories from front to back of my years on the far with my grandparents. The author capture untold snippets of folk who make their life off the land. The narrator was perfect for the role and his transitions from character to character were flawless. Thoroughly enjoyable.
