It’s homecoming for the Durant Dogies when Cord Lynear, a Mormon ‘lost boy’ forced off his compound for supposedly rebellious behavior, shows up in Absaroka County. Without much guidance, divine or otherwise, Sheriff Walt Longmire, his second in command Victoria Moretti, and his good friend Henry Standing Bear search for the boy’s mother and find themselves in a high plains scavenger hunt that ends at the barbed wire doorstep of an interstate polygamy group. Run by the four hundred pound Roy Lynear, Cord’s father, the group is frighteningly well-armed and very good at keeping secrets.

Meanwhile, Walt’s got Cord locked up for his own good, but the Absaroka County jailhouse is getting crowded since the arrival of Cord’s self-appointed bodyguard, a delusional but dangerously spry old man who claims to be the now two hundred year old Orrin Porter Rockwell, Man of God, Son of Thunder, blessed by Joseph Smith himself. And to make life more complicated, things are heating up between Walt and his under-sheriff Vic, and she doesn’t take kindly to Walt’s new habit of sleeping in the jail to keep an eye on things.

As Walt, Henry and Vic pursue the Lynears, butting heads with the well-armed zealots, they hear whispers of Big Oil and the CIA and find they might be dealing with more than they bargained for.

About the Narrator

George Guidall, winner of eighty-eight AudioFile Earphones Awards, has twice won the prestigious Audie Award for Excellence in Audiobook Narration. In 2014 the Audio Publishers Association presented him with the Special Achievement Award for an audiobook narrator of exceptional stature and accomplishment. During his thirty-year recording career he has recorded over 1,100 audiobooks, won multiple awards, been a mentor to many narrators, and shown by example the potential of fine storytelling. Among Guidall’s narration achievements are Crime and Punishment, The Iliad, and John Irving’s A Widow for One Year, which earned him an Audie Award for best unabridged narration of a novel, an honor he captured again for his rendition of Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much Is True. Guidall’s forty-year acting career includes starring roles on Broadway, an Obie Award for best performance off Broadway, and frequent television appearances.
