Santa Fe New Mexican


Who’s Who And Who’s Here

Michael McGarrity is the author of the bestselling Kevin Kerney series of 14 vividly evoked crime novels set in New Mexico. With Residue and Head Wounds, he concluded the series, but not before the publication of his groundbreaking American West historical trilogy — Hard Country, Backlands, and The Last Ranch — about the Kerney family in New Mexico from 1875 to the end of the Vietnam War. His newest outing, The Long Ago ,to be published in July, is a spinoff to the series, set in the mid-20th century. It’s the story of the Montana family of Sara Brannon, the woman Kerney fell in love with in McGarrity’s debut novel, Tularosa.
