"Mystery fans shouldn't miss Tularosa. Michael McGarrity's first entry in the field moves like lightning. An ex-cop, he knows what he's writing about—and how to write it." —Tony Hillerman


It's been two years since an on-the-job shooting forced ex-Santa Fe chief of detectives Kevin Kerney to retire. He is drawn back into action when Terry Yazzi, his former partner and the man responsible for his wounds, pleads for Kerney's help. Yazzi's son, a soldier, has disappeared in the barren desert surrounding the White Sands Missile Range.


Kerney's investigation resurrects the long-forgotten thrill of the hunt—and other emotions surface after meeting the tough-but-beautiful Capt. Sara Brannon, the Army's investigating officer. Together, they uncover a crime far greater than an AWOL soldier: a conspiracy of death that snakes from the secretive world of military operations, to the cutthroat alleys of a Mexican border town, leading them to a final, shocking revelation that may cost them both their lives.


Tularosa is the first book in McGarrity's "Kevin Kerney" crime series.



Michael McGarrity is the author of the nationally best-selling Kevin Kerney crime novels, which he concluded in Head Wounds, and the acclaimed American West historical trilogy. A former psychotherapist and deputy sheriff, he lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Few mysteries are as fresh and powerful as this rich Southwestern tale…McGarrity delivers atmosphere, action, romance, and prime satisfaction.
— Publishers Weekly, starred review

Michael McGarrity has a sharp ear for Southwestern talk, a clear eye for Southwestern country, and an alarming knowledge of the reaches of human wickedness.This sure-footed mystery may be his first book but—believe me—he's been practicing.
— Richard Bradford, author of Red Sky at Morning

Tularosa has more deadly and seductive twists than a desert sidewinder. Let Michael McGarrity and his sexy, savvy hero, Kevin Kerney, guide you through murder and mayhem, Southwest-style.

— Sarah Lovett, author of Dangerous Attachments
