Publisher Description

The new novel in Craig Johnson's beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series.

"It's the sceneryand the big guy standing in front of the scenerythat keeps us coming back to Craig Johnson's lean and leathery mysteries." 
The New York Times Book Review

Recovering from his harrowing experiences in Mexico, Sheriff Walt Longmire returns to Absaroka County, Wyoming, to lick his wounds and try once again to maintain justice in a place with grudges that go back generations. When a shepherd is found dead, Longmire suspects it could be suicide. But the shepherd's connection to the Extepares, a powerful family of Basque ranchers with a history of violence, leads the sheriff into an intricate investigation of a possible murder.

As Walt searches for information about the shepherd, he comes across strange carvings on trees, as well as play money coupons from inside Mallo Cup candies, which he interprets as messages from his spiritual guide, Virgil White Buffalo. Longmire doesn't know how these little blue cards are appearing, but Virgil usually reaches out if a child is in danger. So when a young boy with ties to the Extepare clan arrives in town, the stakes grow even higher.

Even more complicating, a renegade wolf has been haunting the Bighorn Mountains, and the townspeople are out for blood. With both a wolf and a killer on the loose, Longmire follows a twisting trail of evidence, leading to dark and shocking conclusions.

The reluctant hero

This has been yet another great read by Mr. Johnson who has become a really great writer. I love the way he tells his stories. You can feel the way the characters feel. His little twists of humor keep the story moving and prevent the mood from being to heavy.
I am so glad that Walt and all of our favorite characters are still here and the book series doesn’t carry the darker theme of the TV show. Mr. Johnson paints the scenery in our minds with his writing far better than the the TV can depicts.
I can’t wait for the next adventure.

I love all of Craig Johnson’s books and this was no exception. It did make me a little sad that he is getting older, but then we all are, aren’t we. I would highly recommend this. book.
