Serpent Gate


“A confluent masterpiece of plot, setting and character. It should be savored by all connoisseurs of the genre.”   Booklist

After receiving a call from the newly appointed chief of the New Mexico State Police, ex-Santa Fe chief of detectives Kevin Kerney is thrown into an investigation of a small-town cop-killing no one has been able to solve. His only lead: a homeless schizophrenic’s ramblings about rape and an uncharted place called Serpent Gate.
