The Cold Dish:
When a local boy is found dead near the North Cheyenne reservation in the mountains of Wyoming, most people assume it was an isolated hunting accident. But Sheriff Walt Longmire is not most people. His investigation shows that two years earlier, the dead boy and three others were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Soon, a second boy is gunned down, and only Sheriff Longmire can keep the remaining two safe.
Death Without Company:
When elderly local woman Mari Baroja is poisoned, Sheriff Longmire wants to know who’s been to see her lately. As the Sheriff enters the outermost edge of her web, he sets in motion a string of disturbing occurrences involving members of the isolated community: the coal and methane industry, the former Sheriff, and other interests. With Deputy Victoria, Mr. Santiago, and his friend Henry Standing Bear, Longmire must wrangle a man with an appalling history of abuse.
Kindness Goes Unpunished:
Walt travels to Philadelphia while investigating a brutal assault on his daughter Cady. Walt is sure that Cady’s ex-boyfriend is to blame, until the young man turns up dead. Enlisting the help of deputy Victoria Moretti, Walt searches for answers and discovers that Cady was wrapped up in a conspiracy involving a Salvadoran narcotics smuggling operation. A small fish in a big pond, Walt is determined to lay some small-town justice on these big city slickers.
Another Man's Moccasins:
When a dead Vietnamese girl is found along a Wyoming highway, Longmire has little to go on. Near the crime scene, however, he discovers a homeless Indian and Vietnam vet who happens to have the girl’s purse, which contains a photograph that reminds him of his first investigation as a Marine detective in the jungles of Vietnam. Longmire is sure that the two crimes are connected, but old enemies thwart his search for answers.
