Lawman turned best-selling author Michael McGarrity presents this thrilling Kevin Kerney novel—packed with gritty action—that “series fans will relish” (Publishers Weekly). Called out of retirement, Kerney must take up the hunt for a psychotic killer who’s been blazing a path of carnage from Texas to Colorado. Fortunately he’ll have help from his half-Indian son, Sgt. Clayton Istee.

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
Rather than focusing on the main characters of this series, Dead or Alive concentrates on a cold blooded killer that never makes a mistake and has no redeeming qualities. I kept fast forwarding, hoping it would get better but it just dragged on and on and on. I wouldn't listen to this book again at gunpoint!
A few years ago I read a book in this series titled Everybody Dies. That should have been reserved for this book. I usually enjoy the Kearny series and it has been getting a bit too sweet with the wife and family...but Mr McGarrity went overboard fixing that in this story and he mixed saccharine with bitter to no good effect. I guess read it to keep the series outline in case it is necessary for the next book..but don't have a gun in the room you might be tempted to use it. George Guidall makes anything wonderful to listen to but this subject matter nearly overwhelms his narration.
