Why did I read this?  I read a review and several people I know have recommended the series.

This book serves as the most current events in the series and an introduction to the series at the same time.  Walt Longmire is sheriff revisting one of his old cases as the story begins, the case is one from the very beginning of his career and his  relationship with his mentor and the other sheriffs of the state.  It involves a serial killer and many levels of deception from friends and enemies and even frenemies.  I am looking forward to reading more from Craig Johnson.
