Death Without Company by Craig Johnson
“Ah! surely nothing dies but something mourns!”
–Don Juan, Lord Byron.
The death of Mari Baroja doesn’t seem anything out of the ordinary, after all she was over seventy years old. But her neighbor in the Durant Home for Assisted Living insists she was murdered, and if anyone should know it’s former Absaroka County Sheriff Lucian Connally.
What should have been an easy favor for his predecessor, turns into something far more complicated for Sheriff Walt Longmire when it turns out that Lucian was right. But why would anyone want a harmless old Basque woman dead and what is her connection to the former sheriff?
Even though the ground is frozen solid in Absaroka County Wyoming, all the secrets surrounding Mari Baroja are not going to stay buried for long.
