Walt Longmire goes undercover to save a woman in an unfriendly place
Interweaving classic noir sensibilities and humor with contemporary themes of social justice, Craig Johnsonís popular Walt Longmire mysteries transport readers to the sparse and rugged landscape of Wyoming. In The Dark Horse, the sheriff investigates when his instincts tell him something isnít right about a prisoner accused of killing her husband.
Wade Barsad, a man with a dubious past, locked his wifeís horses in their barn and burned the animals alive. In return, Mary shot Wade in the head six timesóor so the story goes. Walt doesnít believe Maryís confession, and heís 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 Manís Moccasins as Sheriff Longmire unpins his star and ventures into a town without pity to save a woman without hope.
