The first in a series written by Johnson set in Wyoming. This area has been covered before, but Johnson knows his territory and paints a great word picture. A good cast of characters with our lead being the sheriff, Walt Longmire. This is Bighorn Mt. country, close to Cheyenne Indian country, so the Native American culture fits into the landscape. Good start to a series that now numbers four, I think it would be worth your time if you are a Tony Hillerman fan. Even if you aren't, I would recommend the series.
