    Gabriel McKenna is grieving the loss of his wife and marinating in a sea of liquid gold, but nothing can prepare him for the surprise that awaits him in New Mexico It s easy to appreciate the history, the setting and the characters, especially for Albuquerque residents As we follow Gabriel through a helter skelter of incidents, a threatening white envelope on the windshield of his car and a Pueblo Revival style house he can now call his own, there is always that inescapable feeling of tension that kept me riveted Kidera s writing is first rate and keeps at a consistent pace From the development of Gabriel s character and to his dry sense of humor, I enjoyed everything about him He s human, likeable, and will resonate with a multitude of readers If you like a book that will keep you turning the pages and makes you shiver with anticipation, then this is just the ticket.

    I received this as a free e book, so I feel I can t complain too much I would only read another book in this series to see if the writing improves So, yeah I probably won t be reading another book in the series.The protagonists were ridiculously easy to identify The main character was ridiculously reckless and, frankly, stupid In spite of multiple admonitions not to trust anyone, he gladly tells his story to just about everyone he meets and brings them into his inner circle And mind you, with the exception of C.J who he hasn t seen in many years , he just met all of these people on his arrival in New Mexico I went with biggest idiot on the planet because the other choice was trusting fool.There s almost no character development, and the path of the story is too easy to spot for this to be a really good book Nevertheless, I read the entire thing and didn t feel like it was too much of a slog, even if I was mentally berating myself the entire time because I knew how it would end.

    The first in this series brings Gabe McKenna to Albuquerque from New York after his aunt s death to learn that, as her only living relative, he inherited her house in Albuquerque and a property in Catron county But it s a book by his great grandfather called Red Gold, about the Lost Adams gold His search for both the property and the gold is fraught with death and intrigue Luckily he finds old and new friends to help in his search I enjoyed this, partly because I know the places Gabe visits I ll definitely read in the series.

    MehIt s hard to provide a review of this book without spoilers The setting and descriptions of the landscape and culture were interesting The main character was ridiculously reckless and put others in danger to meet his own ends The relationships were poorly developed and unrealistic Still, although I rolled my eyes a lot, I read the whole thing and it got me thru some boring wait times.

    Gabe McKenna is a throwback to the noir detectives hard drinking, prone to getting into jams, gun toting hard boiled guy who acts like he has nothing to lose He is a widowed retired history professor who comes into a sizeable inheritance in Albuquerque and lands in the middle of a dispute over a lost treasure Very entertaining Carefully crafted story.

    This was a pretty good story I ll check out what the next book holds in store for Gabe.

    An exciting rollercoaster ride with a romantic tint This book is a well written mystery that is action packed and full of twists and turns It s an interesting mix of old school mystery detective novels with modern touches The main character is a flawed man who is dealing with grief in the wrong way, but he gets on the right track by the end of the story You have to like history and it helps to have a little knowledge about the old West and gold prospecting I enjoyed it so much that it was impossible to put down at times A great must read for mystery and or detective novel lovers

    Keeping you in suspense An excellent read with several unforeseen twists at one point I couldn t figure out who the main character could trust The characters are realistic, the main character flawed yet human, the writing is pithy and yet eloquent Definitely recommended and I am about the download the next in the series

    Liked character development of Gabe McKenna Represents a protagonist with diverse background and one who sometimes makes the wrong decision Having spent some time in New Mexico, I enjoyed the depiction of the area and the reference to specific points in the state Looking forward to reading book 2 in the series.

    Great storyAs others have commented, it s a page turner Finished it in two sittings Kidera brought all of his characters to life and kept them moving Will probably be reading of his work.
