Award-winning author Craig Johnson’s critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Two years earlier, four high school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.
Johnson's book centers around the murder of a young man in a small town. A crime difficult to solve because no one is sorry to see the victim dead, including Sherrif Longmire. Behind the narrative is a larger question of what is left behind when a part of you is killed. The individuals and also the groups in this story have all been suffered brutal losses in different ways at different times. What does that do to the compassion and ethics of a person, or town, or tribe? The story doesn't answer the question -- but, more satisfyingly, it sets it in motion in the minds of its characters who must reconsider themselves and one another in the light of a new tragedy.
