Longmire, the sheriff started an investigation when his instincts directed him that something is fishy and not good at all about a prisoner. The lady prisoner had allegations of killing her husband, Wade Barsad. He was known as someone with a very mysterious past. He locked up the horses of his wife in the barn and then he just burnt them all alive. As a reaction, his wife Mary shot her husband six times in the head. However, Longmire had no belief in the confession statement of Mary. He is fully determined to dig deeper as he knew that there is some secret behind her confession and she is deliberately hiding it.
First of all, The Dark Horse is not a standalone chapter. If you are a starter with the series and thinking about going with The Dark Horse first then stop right away. You need to first go through the earlier novels in the series to get the background, storyline, and development of characters. The book is quite fascinating overall and you will be in awe of such a great performance by George Guidall.
