‘The characters talk straight from the hip and the Wyoming landscape is its own kind of eloquence’ New York Times

After 25 years as Sheriff of Absaroka County, Walt Longmire’s hopes of ending his tenure in peace are dashed when Cody Pritchard is found dead near the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Two years earlier, Cody was one of four high school boys given suspended sentences for raping a local Cheyenne girl. Somebody, it would seem, is seeking vengeance, and Longmire might be the only thing standing between the three remaining boys and a Sharps .45-70 rifle.

With lifelong friend Henry Standing Bear and Deputy Victoria Moretti Walt Longmire attempts to see that revenge, a dish best served cold, is never served at all.

The characters talk straight from the hip and the Wyoming landscape is its own kind of eloquence
NEW YORK TIMES
Like the greatest crime novelists, Johnson is a student of human nature
LA TIMES
Johnson's pacing is tight and his dialogue snaps
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
Johnson knows the territory, both fictive and geographical, and tells us about it in prose that crackles.
