Hell Is Empty
Author: Craig Johnson
From Mysterious Reviews: This is not a typical crime novel, with the Wyoming Sheriff, in pursuit of an escaped killer through mountainous territory during a particularly brutal snowstorm, alone most of the time and, in a twist for a thriller, being the source of much of the suspense.
Synopsis (from the publisher): Well-read and world-weary, Sheriff Walt Longmire has been maintaing order in Wyoming's Absaroka County for more than thirty years, but now he is pushed to his limits. Raynaud Shade, an adopted Crow Indian, has just confessed to murdering a boy ten years ago and burying him deep within the Big Horn Mountains. After transporting Shade and a group of other convicted murderers through a snowstorm, Walt is informed by the FBI that the body is buried in his jurisdiction—and the victim's name is White Buffalo. Guided only by Indian mysticism and a battered paperback of Dante's Inferno, Walt pursues Shade and his fellow escapees into the icy hell of the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area, cheating death to ensure that justice—both civil and spiritual—is served.
