The Cold Dish by Craig Johnson. Recently widowed, he resides in the shell of the dream house he never completed and operates out of boxes he never unpacked. His deputy is a prickly ex-East Coast cop and his best friend, Henry Standing Bear, served with him in Vietnam and now serves burgers and adult beverages.
Not much happens in his county, so Walt's surprised when he gets the call about the dead man found near the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Walt wants to believe it's an unfortunate hunting accident, but the victim is one of four young men who, two years earlier, raped and brutalized a young Cheyenne girl born with fetal alcohol syndrome. The boys were released with suspended sentences and Walt suspects it's a case of good ol' frontier justice.
Walt approaches and observes his life with a keen, wry, humble wit. Honestly I'm reluctant to share him as this is my first introduction to him and the series (the latest, Hell is Empty was released in June), but he's too good to keep to myself.
