“The bodies pile up almost as fast as the Valentine's Day snow in the award-winning author's sixth mystery featuring Sheriff Walt Longmire. When a severed thumb is found in the local junkyard, a collision course is set between the locals and multimillion-dollar developers eyeballing the adjacent property. All of Johnson's trademarks are here - great characters, witty banter, serious sleuthing, and a love of Wyoming bigger than a stack of derelict cars.”
-- Brian Woodbury, The Toadstool Bookshop, Milford, NH
