(#4 of the Kevin Kerney series)- Kerney inherits a bunch of land encompassing Hermit’s Peak. He is exploring his 6,000 + acreage with his friend Dale when they stumble upon a dog with an old shoe in his mouth. Upon further investigation, they discover human bones buried not too far from where they found the dog. The bones are of a young Mexican Indian girl. The murder investigation uncovers poaching forests and a ring of thieves. Could the murderer be amoung the ring? There are several mini plots which involve Sergeant Gonzales and his son Orlando, rare cacti, Kerney’s girlfriend Sara and their blossoming relationship and a couple more murders. McGarrity does a good job weaving the plots together without losing the objective of resolving the main conflict. This series gives a great description of New Mexico and it’s countryside. Although, this is not may favorite, it’s a pretty good one. The ending leaves you hanging a bit thinking the next book will be a continuation.
