Death Without Company by Craig Johnson, 271 pages, read by Tracy, on 06/21/2012

There is a new western on TV called Longmire. After watching it I discovered it was based on the mysteries written by Craig Johnson. Walt Longmire is the sheriff in the town of Durant Wyoming where in the winter “you needed to know where to park your car so you could find it in the morning”  His job is his life but he does stop and appreciate the beauty of the Wyoming landscape. When the former sheriff asks him to investigate the possible murder of a former lover Longmire is skeptical but when members of her family are assaulted he has no choice. Walt is fortunate to have many friends and fellow law enforcement officers to help him solve the mystery. The only difference I could see between the show and the book is the show doesn’t have his Dog with him. I enjoyed both.
