Hermit’s Peak


“A series that has never been less than professional and is now approaching distinguished.”   The Philadelphia Inquirer

When an old family friend unexpectedly leaves Kevin Kerney 6400 acres of high country land outside Las Vegas, New Mexico, the last thing he wants to think about is police work.  Taking a rare weekend off from his job as deputy chief of the New Mexico State Police, Kerney set out to explore the land, a rugged mesa in the shadow of Hermit’s Peak, But before he gets very far, an ailing stray dog with a woman’s running shoe in his mouth leads him to the butchered bones of a murder victim, and the realization that he’s inherited a homicide along with a ranch.
