Abstract: We show that antiferromagnetism in lightly (approximate to 8%) Sn-doped CeIn3 terminates at a critical field mu H-0(c)=42 +/- 2 T. Electrical transport and thermodynamic measurements reveal the effective mass m(*) not to diverge, suggesting that cubic CeIn3 is representative of a critical spin-density wave (SDW) scenario, unlike the local quantum critical points reported in anisotropic systems such as CeCu6-xAux and YbRh2Si2-xGex. The existence of a maximum in m(*) at a lower field mu H-0(x)=30 +/- 1 T may be interpreted as a field-induced crossover from local moment to SDW behavior as the Neel temperature falls below the Fermi temperature.
