Publisher's Summary

After years away on the pro rodeo circuit, Johnny Jordan struts into Santa Fe to ask his boyhood friend, Santa Fe Police Chief Kevin Kerney, to serve as a technical advisor on a contemporary Western movie to be filmed along the Mexican border.

Kerney agrees and plans a working vacation on location in a remote area of the state known as the Bootheel with his wife, Lt. Colonel Sara Brannon, and their three-year-old son, Patrick. But a dead man on a road near an isolated border crossing, a federal undercover investigation into immigrant smuggling, the search for a fugitive from military justice hiding somewhere in Europe, and Johnny Jordan's troublesome behavior ensure that nothing goes as planned. As separate investigations embroil Kerney and Sara in circumstances that will forever changes their lives, Kerney must care for Patrick while Sara plays a dangerous game of Pentagon politics.

Packed with family secrets, international intrigue, and memorable characters, this is McGarrity's most ambitious and involving novel to date. It travels an accelerating arc from Santa Fe and the desert grasslands and mountains of the Bootheel to the most secret levels of the Pentagon and a resort town on the coast of Ireland, then back to an adrenaline-charged climax on a desolate landing strip a few miles north of the Mexican border.

    Just an old retired guy, eyesight not as good as it was, so really enjoy listening to these books. Been listening for about 6 years.

    "Goods story, a little draggy in spots,"

    I enjoyed the story, but seemed to drag with not much happening at times. Really unhappy about how the book ends, but suppose left that way to form an opening for the next book.
    Anything read by George Guidall is made better by his reading!!!

    "The never ending story"

    It just stopped dead. No resolution of Sarah's problems, no word about Jordan, and nothing about anything else. Also, if an author writes a series of books, how about giving them a number, so we can read em in order. Was a good story up to the end, but it stopped so abruptly I went back to see id I had missed downloading a part.

    "No ending"

    This book didn't end, it just stopped. It was like the author's pen ran out of ink.

    "Nothing but trouble"

    Disappointed with ending. No real climax, just "The End" where it seemed more could have been tied together.
