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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Johnson’s affecting story is a winning combination of suspense, situational comedy, and cosmic awe. We greatly admire the author’s hero, who never wavers, even when faced with the seemingly implausible.” Wall Street Journal
“George Guidall’s semi-rough, laid-back voice is a great fit for Walt Longmire, the tough, honest, sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. There is humor tucked in the corners of Guidall’s voice, as there is in Longmire’s recounting of his adventures…Johnson has terrific characters in Longmire and company; here, Guidall honors them with a fine performance.” AudioFile
“Johnson keeps the reader guessing up to the satisfying ending. Witty dialogue, an endearing lead, and distinctive supporting characters all add up to a winner.” Publishers Weekly
“Much more of a traditional mystery than an action-packed tale of revenge…Along with 2017’s The Western Star, I think it’s Johnson’s best work in over a decade.” Real Book Spy
“The investigation widens, and the dynamics and particulars of sheep farming, of migrant labor and shepherding, and of land use in general are ably explored through the history of the Extepare family…A rewarding journey to Absaroka County.” Kirkus Reviews
“A smart, thoughtful mystery from an author who’s incapable of being boring and who’s writing at the top of his game.” Newsday
