Every Longmire book by Craig Johnson that I read seems to outdo the last and “A Serpent’s Tooth” is no exception. As Craig Johnson has often discussed, this book explores the dark underbelly of cults. When a homeless teenager shows up in Walt Longmire’s county, the sheriff soon finds himself dealing with more than meets the eye.
The boy is a cast off from a polygamy cult where an excess of male children soon become a liability. Naturally there are more twists and turns and – of course – a murder, thrown in. As with his other books, just when you think you have it figured out, you soon find that you are wrong.
Hang on to the end, it is well worth the ride.
