Publisher's Summary

The Denver Post hails Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mystery series as a must-read. Joining the four previous novels - all of which have been Book Sense picks - The Dark Horse puts a unique Wyoming twist on the classic British village mystery.

Sheriff Longmire investigates when his instincts tell him something isn't right about a prisoner accused of killing her husband. Wade Barsad, a man with a dubious past, locked his wife's horses in their barn and burned the animals alive. In return, Mary shot Wade in the head six times - or so the story goes. Walt doesn't believe Mary's confession, and he's determined to dig deeper. Posing as an insurance claims investigator, Walt soon discovers other people who might have wanted Wade dead, including a beautiful Guatemalan bartender and a rancher with a taste for liquor, but not for honesty.

The Dark Horse is sure to build on the success of Another Man's Moccasins as Sheriff Longmire unpins his star and ventures into a town without pity to save a woman without hope.

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

    "Keep 'em coming, these are great!"

    Walt undercover? Hard to imagine, even for Walt and yet he pulls the pieces together and brings justice to Campbell County. The characters grow in complexity and even Walt stands confused by the actions of his staff. But he is re-elected and more stories to follow, alleluia!

    "Held me throughout"

    The pace of the book is somehow perfect. No time to get bored waiting for something to happen. The narration works very well. This was my first by Craig Johnson, and I've already listened to another ("Cold Dish") that I also enjoyed immensely. Johnson and Guidall -- great team.

    "The narrator's voice is a disaster!"

    I started the book about 15 times, and could never go beyond the first 15 minutes... Unfortunately, the "sample" button was disabled at the time of purchase, so i bought the book fully relying on the other readers' reviews... I cannot remember anybody commenting on the the narrator's voice... My recommendation would be to listen to the sample before purchasing the book, otherwise you'd waste your money, just like i did...

    "Best of the Walt Longmire Series so Far"

    I've enjoyed all the Walt Longmire books so far. Craig Johnson and this series are not among my all time favorites, but they are entertaining enough to recommend, and are worth your time and money.

    George Guidall is my all-time favorite narrator and he fits this series to a tee. He's even better in this series than he is in the Mitch Rapp books by Vince Flynn.

    Anyway, I haven't felt that any of the Craig Johnson - Walt Longmire books are "Can't Put Down", and I do find myself drifting at times from these books. There seems to be too many side conversations and small events that aren't really related to the story, and go beyond describing the way of life and times of living near an Indian Reservation in Wyoming.

    If you haven't already found him, James Lee Burke is a fantastic Americana style writer in this genre and is one of my all-time favorites. I would highly recommend him and his Dave Robicheaux series. As for Walt Longmire, I will probably continue listening to the rest of the books, but I'll take breaks along the way.

    Overall, recommended!
