Publisher's Summary

Santa Fe Police Chief Kevin Kerney and his wife, Lieutenant Colonel Sara Brannon, are on leave and eagerly awaiting the birth of their son when a prominent gay attorney is gunned down outside his office by an unknown assailant. Called to the crime scene and faced with scanty evidence and no apparent motive, Kerney directs his chief of detectives to delve into the victim's personal and professional life, a decision that ultimately leads to a SWAT team screw-up and the death of two innocent people.

But the killer has just begun. Kerney's horse, a mustang he'd gentled and trained, is vicously and senselessly destroyed; a dead rabbit is left on his doorstep; and a second victim with ties to the criminal justice system is found in her bed with her throat cut along with the warning: Everyone Dies.

As a time of joy turns into a nightmare, Kerney and Sara search desperately for a seemingly unstoppable chameleonlike killer who promises to murder them and their unborn son.

A little disjointed.

Not to bad. Some of the other reviews didn't like Patrick Lawlor as a narrator. I didn't find anything wrong with him. He isn't George Guidall but not many narrators are. Everyone Dies isn't McGarrity's best work but it isn't bad. The main antagonist is a real nasty piece of work. I sure hope McGarrity didn't build this character after a real life bad guy. Nice quick read.

Not my favorite McGarrity

A northeast accent doesn't do well with a southwest storyline. Hispanic cops aren't supposed to sound like New Jersey mafia. many pronunciations were off. McGarrity seemed to be struggling for new material on this one. series has been great though.

Full of animal cruelty—not for me!

Sure, it’s a murder mystery so you know someone’s going to die, but I was unprepared for the body tally of people and of the cruelty perpetrated on helpless pets. I do not recommend this book.

Predictable and tepid

The narrator was banal, did not have the inflection to differentiate characters. As a result there was a sentence then ‘he said’ .. instead of a dialog between characters. It made the reading stilted and choppy. The storyline was quite tepid, not the usual developed characters you’d expect from this author. The book felt like a ‘filler’ in the series.

painful narrator

I love this writer, but I had my ears assaulted by the reader. Especially his interpretation of Sara a Lt Col. He ruined it.

Narrator Kills Story

The quality of the narrator will make or break an audio book presentation. In this case Everyone Dies the narration was terrible and killed what was basically a well written story.

Wanted to like it, but was sorely disappointed.

I wanted to like this. My first Introduction McGarrity was his American West trilogy which was basically the Kerney family history over the last 100+ years. Those were interesting, well developed stories with complex characters and real plot twists. To make it even better, these were narrated by the gold standard, George Guidall.

Everyone Dies, however was a poorly written mystery/thriller that disappointed at every chance. I stuck with it hoping the finale would pay off, but it was another let down. After hearing these characters brought to life in previous novels by Guidall, the narrator of this book was subpar in comparison.
