Walt Longmire unravels a mystery that connects two murders across forty years

When the body of a young Vietnamese woman is found alongside the interstate in Absaroka County, Wyoming, Sherriff Walt Longmire is determined to discover the identity of the victim and is forced to confront the horrible similarities of this murder to that of his first homicide investigation as a marine in Vietnam.

To complicate matters, Virgil White Buffalo, a homeless Crow Indian, is found living in a nearby culvert and in possession of the young woman?s purse. There are only two problems with what appears to be an open-and-shut case. One, the sheriff doesn?t think Virgil White Buffalo?a Vietnam vet with a troubling past?is a murderer. And two, the photo that is found in the woman?s purse looks hauntingly familiar to Walt.

In the fourth book in Craig Johnson?s awardwinning Walt Longmire series, the tough yet tender sheriff solves two murders tied in blood but separated by nearly forty years.

Sheriff Walt Longmire’s past meets his present in this fourth entry in the Longmire series. When a young Vietnamese woman is found dead by the side of the interstate, it is up to Walt to investigate. Initially, the case seems too easy, as a large Crow Indian is found living nearby and in possession of the dead woman’s purse.

But as Walt knows, nothing is that easy. In spite of his tainted record, Virgil White Buffalo is probably not the killer, and Walt knows this. But who would kill this woman? And who is this woman, and what is she doing in Wyoming?

Walt has quite the case on his hands, mostly because the appearance of the Vietnamese woman sends Walt’s mind back in time. Readers will find Walt frequently flashing back to his time in Vietnam. Walt’s greatest challenge lies in keeping a clear head in order to solve the case.

Even though I love Walt and this series, the flashbacks were too plentiful, too long, and too boring. If one is reading this series in order, I would advise skipping this entry.

Good writing and a quirky sense of how the author is invested in where he lives
