LONGMIRE, a new A&E drama series The Dark Horse is the fifth installment in New York Times bestselling author Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mystery series. Wade Barsad, a man with a dubious past and a gift for making enemies, burned his wife Mary's horses in their barn; in retribution, she shot him in the head six times. But Sheriff Walt Longmire of Wyoming's Absaroka County doesn't believe Mary's confession. Leaving behind the demands of his upcoming re-election campaign, Walt unpins his star to go undercover and discovers that everyone-including a beautiful Guatemalan bartender and a rancher with a taste for liquor-had a reason for wanting Wade dead. Read Craig Johnson's posts on the Penguin Blog.

One of my favorite series and authors! This really is a character-driven story, and the characters are awesome!
