Cold in Wyoming

Being something of a wimp, I avoid books about satanic serial killings, suffocation by pythons or other unappealing death scenarios. The mysteries I read are usually set in cities or in cozy English villages, but like most book lovers I am always on the prowl for something new and wonderful.When I saw a blurb praising Craig Johnson, a writer who was new to me, I took a chance on The Cold Dish (Penguin, 400 pp, $14), his first book.
