If, Jane, you were referring to the James Lee Burke books as being worth a peek, they are. Several peeks, in fact.

Haven't gotten around to the new Ridley book yet, but thanks for the recommendation. His first book, Stray Dogs, was good, too, but suffers slightly from that 90s publishing phenomenon 'the screenplay sold to the movies then written up and sold as a book'. The movie was U Turn, directed by Oliver Stone and starring Sean Penn.

McGarrity's a terrific writer and adds to my theory that New Mexico must be some kind of place.
