    Murder Abroad

    This month sees us turn to murder overseas: from M. M. Kaye's crime in the subcontinent to Michel Bussi's French mystery AFTER THE CRASH, described in the SUNDAY TIMES as 'A novel so extraordinary that it reminded me of reading Stieg Larsson for the very first time'.

After 25 years as Sheriff of Absaroka County, Walt Longmire's hopes of ending his tenure in peace are dashed when Cody Pritchard is found dead near the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Two years earlier, Cody was one of four high school boys given suspended sentences for raping a local Cheyenne girl. Somebody, it would seem, is seeking vengeance, and Longmire might be the only thing standing between the three remaining boys and a Sharps .45-70 rifle.
