Narrated by George Guidall
When Mari Baroja is found poisoned at the Durant Home for Assisted Living, Sheriff Longmire is drawn into an investigation that reaches fifty years into the mysterious woman’s dramatic Basque past. Aided by his friend Henry Standing Bear, Deputy Victoria Moretti, and newcomer Santiago Saizarbitoria, Sheriff Longmire must connect the specter of the past to the present to find the killer among them.
Book 2 in the Walt Longmire series and just as good as the first. In addition to Sheriff Longmire there is a cast of quirky characters to make the story happen. And you know how much I love quirky characters. The wilds of Wyoming is just the kind of place for them too. This particular installment of the series moves back and forth between the present investigation into Mari’s death and the events in the past that ultimately triggered her murder. As usual, Walt and his deputies are in it till the end and will do whatever it takes to get the job done. And let’s not forget that this is all taking place in the middle of a blizzard. And of course, this book is narrated by George Guidall, one of my favorite narrators. He just seems to become Walt and draw you in. I am definitely loving these stories from Craig Johnson and can’t wait to start on book 3.
