... has a somewhat meandering plot that settles down about two-thirds of the way through. As always, McGarrity’s descriptions of the people and places on both sides of the southern border of the United States make for terrific reading, and the journey through the tale is more than worth it, regardless of who is and isn’t prominently featured. It is a fitting end to a well-crafted series.
McGarrity’s series has always contained elements of noir, procedural investigation, and domestic drama, but here the color palette is more dark than light, as a confrontation looms between two men who would prefer to find a separate peace. A stirring conclusion to a fine series.
