Hell Is Empty, by Craig Johnson

Craig Johnson writes wonderful books.  Walt Longmire and Henry Standing Bear are a couple of my favorite characters, and usually Johnson provides a taut plot, with abundant action, heart, and humor.  I guess you can't fault an author for wanting to try something new, but I don't think this was Johnson's most successful effort.  The preponderance of this book is about Walt's solo chase for a deranged killer through a mountain blizzard.  Much of the action goes on inside Walt's mind.  I don't know Dante's Inferno, but I suspect if I did I'd find abundant parallels.
