Publisher's Summary

In this complex tale of greed and revenge, best-selling author Michael McGarrity shrewdly blends riveting action with magnificent southwestern scenery. Serpent Gate portrays former Santa Fe policeman Kevin Kerney in a perilous struggle against corrupt officers, New Mexico politicians, and a deadly enemy from the past. Recruited for the State police by the new chief, Kerney searches the mountainous countryside for a patrolman’s killer. Quickly solving the months-old murder, he takes on a more challenging assignment: recover the priceless art collection stolen from the governor’s office. As Kerney pursues the mastermind behind the theft, he finds himself returning to the violent roots of his first case.

Michael McGarrity, a former police officer for Santa Fe County, draws on his own experience to create plots packed with nonstop excitement and believable predicaments. Narrator George Guidall’s stellar performance will hold you spellbound from the intriguing opening to the surprise ending. For more gripping Kevin Kerney mysteries, don’t miss: Tularosa and Mexican Hat.

excellent!

For years, McGarrity has been one of my favorite authors. Sorry he stopped writing mysteries, although his family history novels are worth reading. And Guidall is, of course, an excellent narrator.

The McGarrity/Guidall combo does it again!

This series just keeps getting better with every book in the series! I think Guidall does an excellent job at bringing the characters to life. Keep up the fine work Mr McGarrity, keep 'em coming!

Kevin Kearney and George Guidall = a perfect match

This is a series that I haven't read in order so I've gone back to read the ones I've missed.
This entry has two simultaneous but unrelated storylines. In one, Kearney is trying to
find out who killed a small-town cop, and in the other he's working to solve the theft of
priceless art works from the governor's office. It took me half the book to keep straight
which characters belonged to which storyline but that was more "operator error" than
a problem with the writing.
