"Sheriff Walt Longmire is enjoying a beer when a younger sheriff shows him a photograph of twenty-five armed men standing in front of a Challenger steam locomotive. It transports him back to a time when, fresh from the battlefields of Vietnam, then-deputy Longmire accompanied his boss Lucian Connolly to the annual Wyoming sheriff's junket held on the excursion train known as the Western Star. Armed with his trusty Colt.45 and a paperback of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, the young Walt was ill-prepared for the machinations of twenty-four veteran sheriffs, let alone the cavalcade of curious characters that accompanied them. Now the photograph -- along with an upcoming parole hearing for one of the most dangerous men Walt has encountered--hurtles the sheriff into a head-on collision of past and present, placing those he loves most squarely on the tracks of runaway revenge."--Back cover.
