Review: Hell Is Empty by Craig Johnson

Wyoming's favorite sheriff braves a frozen inferno as he races to capture an escaped murderer. 
Well-read and world-weary, Sheriff Walt Longmire has been maintaining order in Wyoming's Absaroka County for more than thirty years, but in this riveting seventh outing, 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.

I love it when I open up a book and by the time I've read five pages I can't concentrate on anything except the book in front of me.  Hell Is Empty by Craig Johnson is addicting!  I read it in one day and was depressed when I came to the end.  Craig's writing sweeps the reader off their feet and takes them to another world.  Intense and electrifying, Hell Is Empty is a must read for any book lover.
