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 Johnson's 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 isn't right about a prisoner accused of killing her husband.

Wade Barsad, a man with a dubious past, locked his wife's horses in their barn and burned the animals alive. In return, Mary shot Wade in the head six times-or so the story goes. Walt doesn't believe Mary's confession, and he's 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 Man's Moccasins as Sheriff Longmire unpins his star and ventures into a town without pity to save a woman without hope.

8 out of 10

I've been enjoying the Longmire series on A&E so decided to see how the novels compare. I would say the books are even better than the TV show. "Dark Horse" is the 5th novel in the series and actually one of the Longmire TV shows was based on this novel about a barn that catches fire and destroys several prized horses. Well, the book really fleshes out the Longmire character along with his supporting cast - Victoria (Vic), his deputy; and Henry Standing Bear, his American Indian consort. Overall, I really enjoyed this one and will be looking out for the rest of the series.
