In Nothing But Trouble, Kevin Kerney is approached by an old boyhood friend, Johnny Jordan, who convinces him to serve as a technical adviser for a contemporary Western movie to be shot in a remote part of southwestern New Mexico known as the Bootheel. Before actual filming begins, Kerney travels to the Bootheel to meet with Johnny and the chief production crew and finds the body of a young man on a road near an isolated Mexican border crossing. Kerney investigates and learns that major migrant- and drug-smuggling activities have been occurring on or near the Bootheel ranch, where Johnny's parents live. As Kerney's probe deepens, it leads him suspect that either a local cop or the ranch manager on the Jordan spread might be involved. Set in desolate desert grasslands bracketed by arid mountains, near towns virtually abandoned, along an often-lawless border, Nothing But Trouble showcases McGarrity's trademark flair for characterization as well as his keen sense of the Southwestern landscape. It is McGarrity's most textured novel to date, promising to make him a breakout bestselling mystery writer.
