Mexican Hat ()

The extremely likable Kevin Kerney, former Santa Fe Chief of Detectives, was a
rising star in the police force until a bullet shattered his knee & put him out to pasture.
But Kerney's not going quiet into that good night; after clearing up the
disappearance of his godson in the outstanding debut novel Tullarosa, he's
back & working as a seasonal park ranger in the Gila Wilderness when he gets
pulled into a case that involves wildlife poaching, militiamen & a 60 year
old Mexican-American feud.

Michael McGarrity is one of the best new voices in detective fiction & one hopes
that there are many Kevin Kerney adventures to come.
