They say revenge is a dish best served cold... and Sheriff Walt Longmire can tell you something about that. Kick off the legendary Longmire series with Craig Johnson's "The Cold Dish," a Western novel and mystery.
Book #1 in the Longmire series
In this initial book of the Longmire series, author Craig Johnson introduces Sheriff Walt Longmire of Wyoming's Absaroka County. Johnson draws on his deep attachment to the American West to produce a literary mystery of stunning authenticity, and full of memorable characters. After 25years as sheriff of Absaroka County, Walt Longmire's hopes of finishing out his tenure in peace are dashed when Cody Pritchard is found dead near the Northern Cheyenne reservation. Two years earlier, Cody had been one of four high school boys given suspended sentences for raping a local Cheyenne girl. Somebody, it would seem, is seeking vengence, and Longmire might be the only thing standing between the three remaining boys and their rifle.
