 The Cold Dish

by Craig Johnson

"The title, of course, refers to revenge, and the story begins with the discovery of the corpse of a much-disliked young man. Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire would rather drink beer than investigate, so he dispatches his deputy, Victoria Morretti, a fast-talking former Philadelphia cop who’s craving some action. They soon discover that although the victim was killed with an unusual weapon—a .45-70 buffalo rifle—rural Absaroka County has a surprising number of people who own such a gun, can shoot it accurately, and have a motive for the killing. Worse, there are three more young men with targets on their backs." -- Booklist
