The Judas Judge
A Kevin Kerney NovelLarge Print - 2000
Deputy State Police Chief Kevin Kerney is weeks away from trading in his badge for a rancher's hat, when six murders are committed late one night at remote campgrounds in south central New Mexico. Most of the evidence points to the work of a spree killer, but peculiarities at one crime scene suggest the possibility that five random people have been killed to cover the premeditated murder of the sixth victim, Vernon Langsford, a retired judge and wealthy businessman. Under pressure to make an arrest, Kerney struggles to keep a team of investigators moving forward. As he pieces together a shocking history of the Langsford family, he is harassed by a stalker with an unknown agenda, forced into a gunfight with a crooked cop and shaken by new doubts about his plan to give up police work. Most troubling of all, he is reacquainted with a woman from his past who discloses a secret of her own that could easily disrupt his recent marriage. This is the fifth book in this critically acclaimed series.
