TV tie-in edition with the popular crime-western series Longmire - Now on Netflix.
The first book in the New York Times bestselling Longmire series, featuring Sheriff Walt Longmire
After twenty-five years as Sheriff of Absaroka County, Walt Longmire's hopes of ending his tenure in peace are dashed when Cody Pritchard is found dead near the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Two years earlier, Cody was one of four high school boys given suspended sentences for raping a local Cheyenne girl. Somebody, it would seem, is seeking vengeance, and Longmire might be the only thing standing between the three remaining boys and a Sharps .45-70 rifle.
With lifelong friend Henry Standing Bear and Deputy Victoria 'Vic' Moretti, Walt Longmire attempts to see that revenge, a dish best served cold, is never served at all.
Craig Johnson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire mysteries, the basis for the hit Netflix original series Longmire starring Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Katee Sackoff.
