“Complex, entirely original, and whip-smart.” —John Lescroart

Praise For Residue: A Kevin Kerney Novel (Kevin Kerney Novels #13)

Michael McGarrity does for New Mexico what James Lee Burke does for Louisiana. The land is in his blood. So is crime writing.
— David Morrell

[McGarrity’s] portrait of [New Mexico] is a strong one, built on meticulously detailed intelligence gathered, sifted and analyzed for unspoken secrets and lies by the author’s own deeply cunning mind.
— Marilyn Stasio - New York Times

With each succeeding mystery, McGarrity is ever more sure of his central character, Kerney. Richly textured in setting and character, this series gets better with each outing.
— Dallas Times Herald

An ex-cop, McGarrity knows what he’s writing about—and how to write it.
— Tony Hillerman
