It's Monday, What are You Reading? Dead or Alive

It's Monday, What are You Reading? Dead or Alive

This is my sixth entry for this meme, suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books.

I am now reading Dead or Alive in paperback by Michael McGarrity, the 12th in The Kevin Kerney Novel series. I've read them all, over the years. As Tony Hillerman, since deceased, is quoted on the back cover, "How good it is to follow a detective created by a man who has been there and done that." Over the years, Kerney, the lead character has held numerous New Mexico law enforcement positions, which has made the series especially interesting. He is now in semi-retirement (my description) with a wife and child. A tragedy that occurs on his ranch while he is away, brings him back in search of a thrill killer... what more could you ask of a police procedural/murder mystery!  ;-)

Happy Reading! ;-)

Dr. Bill

Author of "Back to the Homeplace" - check it out:


  1. Sounds like my kind of read!
    Hope you enjoy it and happy reading!
    Natalie :0)

  2. Dr. Bill, I'm reading neither dead nor alive. But I am alive, but I'm not reading dead. Oh well. I'm reading Teri Hatcher's autobio Burnt Toast. Her writing style's kinda like mine - California brunette. Happy midnight to ya!

  3. This sounds interesting Dr. Bill. Don't know why but it makes me think of J.A. Jance - maybe the setting?
    Hope you enjoyed your reading week.

  4. Same feel as Jance, yes. I've read all the Joanne Brady by Jance and Kevin Kearney by McGarrity... YES! Setting very similar, of course. SE Arizona and New Mexico! ;-)

  5. @ MarthaE I'd be pleased to have you review and do giveaway on my novel, "Back to the Homeplace!" Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Enjoyed visiting your website, as well.

    Bill ;-)

  6. Thanks Bill - I remembered seeing this but just now got back to it! Sorry. I am e-mailing you! BTW you won the Book Death Mill Mansion at my blog. That is in the e-mail too! :0)
