Walt and Henry once more exhibit steadfast resolution in their struggle to find justice for one of the many young women who disappear from reservations never to be found. Juggling crimes being committed all the while, they are looking into history and native beliefs for answers and confronting entities both temporal and spiritual.
Decades, centuries, even, of struggle and suffering bear fruit that we may all recognize, even if we have not been part of it. Rich with characters and landscape, this is a substantial literary work that will satisfy any reader of historical fiction.
Once again the rangy, well-read and philosophical Walt Longmire is hunting down miscreants, this time the thieves of a fabulously valuable painting of Custer’s last stand. Using his intellect and considerable capacity for withstanding physical abuse, the big guy prevails, as we knew he would. Great fun and you might learn a thing or two (always) reading Craig Johnson.
