This is book number 5 in the Walt Longmire series.
“Mary Barsad is accused of having shot her husband six times as partial retribution for his setting fire to their barn and killing her horses. But Sheriff Walt Longmire is not convinced she did it, and he sets off to see if he's right. Craig Johnson's latest is another winner in this compelling western mystery series.”
