This might have been a good book if I had read the three others in the series first. Reviewers said that this wasn't necessary, so I plunged in. Found the action very hard to follow without having any background on the characters or what went before. Some series you can do this with because the author updates you at the beginning of the plot. This wasn't one of them!
This was my first time with a Walt Longmire book. It's a little outside the sort of stuff I usually buy, but I'm glad I got it. I thought the storytelling was vivid and exciting, especially towards the climax of the book. Makes me want to listen to more by this author.
I listen to audio books while working.
That's all -- we enjoyed every one of his books and want both writer and narrator (such a good match for the character) to continue to be made into audio.
Any Craig Johnson book with Walt Longmire is a good choice. This was not one of my favorites, but it is still worth the credit and time to listen. I did not find myself as commited to solving the mystery and saving the accused in this story as in previous ones. But between the narration and the overall setting of these books, it is still a good choice to make.
I enjoy the Walt Longmire series by Craig Johnson. His characters are believable small town people and I like having books that are pure escapism such as these.
This was my first Craig Johnson book although it's the sixth in the series. It really hit the spot for me. The reader is perfect for this series of books. There is nothing Mickey mouse about this book - the characters and plot are very real. There is some bad language which may offend some but to me it was all part of the storytelling. I immediately downloaded the first in the series "The Cold Dish and I'm loving it".
I just love this series, well written, smart, witty and funny. Complicated plots, our country sheriff is a great guy, who I would love to meet. Just love George Guidall's reading of these books, there's hope for us old folks yet!
Walt undercover? Hard to imagine, even for Walt and yet he pulls the pieces together and brings justice to Campbell County. The characters grow in complexity and even Walt stands confused by the actions of his staff. But he is re-elected and more stories to follow, alleluia!
Very good narration , a great story, and great mystery. Excellent audio book. If you like myseries you will diffinently want to curl up in bed and read this one.
The pace of the book is somehow perfect. No time to get bored waiting for something to happen. The narration works very well. This was my first by Craig Johnson, and I've already listened to another ("Cold Dish") that I also enjoyed immensely. Johnson and Guidall -- great team.
