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.
Listen to all of Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mysteries.

"A strong sense of place, a credible plot, and deft dialogue lift Johnson's good-humored debut novel." (Publishers Weekly)
"Johnson, who lives in Ucross, Wyoming, knows the Western landscape well, and creates stunning and violent scenes of the Rocky Mountains." (Bookmarks) "We in the West have a major new talent on our hands." (The Denver Post)
Longmire and Bear
Longmire and Bear. I'm in love with both of them.
I want to marry Longmire and Bear both.
yes it moves along at a good clip loved all the characters they were well developed
loved the way he writes about weather I had to get another blanket
do not edit with the artist finished work. Just enjoy or not, as the case may be. In this case enjoy.
good writing good plot -will buy any of his other books
Stimulating, serpentine, unexpected.
Walt Longmire is an articulate, insightful and self-effacing character. The kind of man you'd like to know and spend time with.
The Cheyenne Nation !
The book has excellent pacing taking one from one surprise to the next.
Reading this one makes you hungry for more.
Tell us about yourself!
Yes and maybe even 7-8 times
It was interesting enough to keep me listening and wanting more.
It would not be the book it is without George's style of reading!!
Love the main people of the entire story
Walt is my hero
George is my favorite narrator and the reason why I decided to try this book that I found on sale. I am so glad it was on sale because it is now one of my favorite series!!
I was expecting a mystery/detective style novel like those by Michael Connolly or the like, instead it's just a long winded story about a character I don't find all that interesting, with just a hint of a mystery.
If you're looking for a suspense or detective style book then surely don't buy this. You'll be disappointed.
pretty high on my list
Walt is my favorite character but Standing Bear is a close second
I liked the Bear characterization
Looking forward to reading more from the series
The only thing is that I knew whodunit all along. I liked the setting of the novel.i am thinking of reading another by this author just for the joy of listening to this reader.
I'm enthusiastic because now have a new author to follow. Good page-turner with decent character development. I'll look for Johnson again!
I got this one on a total whim. Seeing that George Guidall was the reader helped but I personally had not heard of Craig Johnson.
There is something very special about Mr. Johnson's style. There is a subtle elegance in his turn of a phrase, his cadence, and story telling. I really enjoyed the story but I was really taken in by Mr Johnson's smoothness. He tells a good joke and I'm sure I laughed out loud 15 times. He has a great way introducing characters and weaving them throughout the story. Highly recommend Craig Johnson.
