Author: Craig Johnson
Book Type: Paperback
Missing body parts and dead developers are only the beginning when Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire finds himself in the throes of a modern day range war.
It's a volatile new economy in Durant when the owners of a multi-million dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent Stewart junkyard. The notorious Stewart clan is an adventure unto itself and, when conflicts erupt, Walt, Dog, life-long friend Henry Standing Bear, and deputies Santiago Saizarbitoria and Victoria Moretti find themselves in a small town that feels more and more like a high plains pressure cooker.
An unlikely romance in an improbable place between junkyard patriarch Geo Stewart and a woman with a socially elite background complicates matters, and the outlaw behavior of Geo's grandson Duane, who gives off a vague scent of marijuana, and young wife Gina, who has a habit of tying her grandfather-in-law to the back of her car, makes for one of the more hilarious entries in the Absaroka County saga.
The sixth book in Johnson's award-winning series finds the sheriff star-deep in the venal aspects of human nature with an admixture of love, laughs, death, and derelict automobiles.
