I already had a crush on Sheriff Walt Longmire from watching the TV show, but reading this book has made me fall in love all over again. This story is book 4 in the series and Sheriff Longmire is on the trail of the murderer of a young Vietnamese woman. The process of investigating this case brings back to him memories of his service in Vietnam during the war. By his side is his lifelong friend Henry and a rather mysterious, very tall, Indian named Virgil. Along the way the reader gets a tour of a ghost town and rural Wyoming.
As previously stated, I love the Longmire stories. I actually listened to the Audible audiobook version and the talent of the narrator just further intensified the story. As usual, the characters are well developed and this one can be read alone without feeling like your missing out on background. There are thrills and chills to delight the senses and the story moves at a really good pace. If you love mysteries and police stories than you don’t want to miss out on this one.

Indian country, Oklahoma. It’s hot and dry, and on this day, it’s deadly. Bill Maytubby is a tribal Lighthorse policeman and Hannah Bond is a deputy for the county. When Hannah discovers the body of Majesty Tate, a drifter, she has no idea what kind of a hornet’s nest the investigation will turn into. Finding answers will take Maytubby across three states and put his life and the life of his fiancé in danger. The question is who will be left standing when the final dust clears.
I think this is a great debut mystery/thriller. I certainly hope it is the start of a series with these characters because I really liked them. The dynamic between Maytubby and Bond is really unique. They are not exactly partners because they work for different agencies but they seem to end up working together when the jurisdictions overlap and I really enjoyed their banter and the way they are able to sense what is needed in any given situation. This story does have a lot of secondary characters that are vital to the story but you will need to be paying attention to keep up with it all. The plot line has a lot of interesting twists and turns and the finale had me on the edge of my seat. Overall, I’m really impressed with this one and will be keeping my eyes open for more from this author.
