Publisher Description

Craig Johnson's rough-and-tumble hero Walt Longmire is quickly becoming a fan-favorite and a critical success. Here Walt has his hands full as greedy land developers employ shady, violent methods to reverse their fortunes in recession-racked Wyoming. "It's the scenery-and the big guy standing in front of the scenery-that keeps us coming back to [these] lean and leathery mysteries."-New York Times Book Review

"Another good one from Craig Johnson---I finished it with trepidation, knowing there are only a few more books currently left in the Walt Longmire series. Craig Johnson has rapidly become one of my favorite authors, continuing to impress with his writing and particularly his character development. His books always make me consider living in Wyoming, but this one gives the reader pause with its description of overwhelming winter weather. I've only been to Wyoming in the summer and I've always enjoyed my visits---perhaps I should continue on that basis."

Set in a Wyoming winter where the temperature tops out at about 3 degrees, it pits Sheriff Walt Longmire and his deputies against bad guys of the in-bred, amateur, and hardcore variety in a town where everyone has a wise-ass comment.

    " Another good addition to the Longmire series. Starts slow but picks up speed as the book moves along. Love the Wyoming setting. Glad Johnson moved back to straight story telling rather that the flashback style used in the prior two novels in the series. "

    " Enjoyed the ride as far as storyline. Fast paced twists and turns involving murder and crime. He would refer to the same characters with different names on the same page which became confusing. My first time reading Craig Johnson, perhaps earlier books would clarify the duplicate names. "
