Joining the four previous novels-all of which have been Book Sense picks-The Dark Horse puts a unique Wyoming twist on the classic British village mystery. When Longmire meets a woman jailed for her husband's death, he travels outside his usual haunts to discover the truth behind this unusual murder case.

"Craig Johnson's cowboy sheriff, Walt Longmire, returns, investigating a suspicious murder on a hunch that the wrong suspect may have been condemned. George Guidall sets the mood from the opening moments with an ambling, pastoral narration that walks this modern Western through its desolate setting. Speaking with an almost tactile drawl, Guidall sounds as if he's relaxing in an easy chair as he tells the story. The barren Wyoming prairie is an apt backdrop for Guidall's pitch-perfect Western twang and effective assortment of Native American accents. The characters are somewhat indistinguishable initially, but the lazy pace of the story and Johnson's descriptive writing make for an entertaining yarn. A.P.C. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
