In a remote New Mexico campground, six people are killed in an apparently senseless murder spree. Deputy State Police Chief Kevin Kerney suspects the slaying wasn't random at all--but rather a calculated plot to eliminate one high-profile victim, retired judge, Vernon Langsford. In piecing together the judge's shocking past, Kerney discovers the victim's predilection for sexual indiscretions, a history of family betrayal and greed, and a dark marriage that ended mysteriously and violently. But as Kerney gets closer to the heart of a terrible crime, it's a woman from his own past who emerges with a stunning secret of her own.

I don't like the violence and sex. I was drawn to the descriptions of New Mexico, places I've been, and, I don't know, I guess you could say the humanity--as seen from a cop's eye view. I've kind of been there, too.

Kerney investigates a killing spree and finds that only one person, a judge, was targeted. The plot is good, and McGarrity describes New Mexico as only someone can do who loves the land. The only part that turned me off was the pedophile in the story, and it was a big turn-off.
