Wyoming's favorite sheriff braves a frozen inferno as he races to capture an escaped murderer.
Well-read and world-weary, Sheriff Walt Longmire has been maintaing order in Wyoming's Absaroka County for more than thirty years, but in this riveting seventh outing, he is pushed to his limits. Raynaud Shade, an adopted Crow Indian, has just confessed to murdering a boy ten years ago and burying him deep within the Big Horn Mountains. After transporting Shade and a group of other convicted murderers through a snowstorm, Walt is informed by the FBI that the body is buried in his jurisdiction-and the victim's name is White Buffalo. Guided only by Indian mysticism and a battered paperback of Dante's "Inferno," Walt pursues Shade and his fellow escapees into the icy hell of the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area, cheating death to ensure that justice-both civil and spiritual-is served.

Review quote

"The story starts with a pitch-perfect piece of Johnson's trademark scene- setting and then roars off into the wilderness, hardly leaving readers time to catch their breaths...In some ways, this reads like a book-length version of the haunting, harrowing final sequence of Johnson's outstanding debut, "The Cold Dish" (2005). And when it comes to bad weather, western lore, and a chilling hint of the supernatural, few writers write it better."
-Keir Graff, "Booklist"

"Series fans and readers who enjoy C.J. Box and other authors of Western mysteries will be enthralled by this electrifying and intense work; a triumph."
-"Library Journal" (starred review)
