As always Walt, Henry Standing Bear, Katie, Vic and the gang provide larger than life, believeable and entertaining characters in a plot as twisty as a pretzel. Great read, and great to listen to as the narration is always "spot on."
Old World Traveler
I really enjoy George Guidall in this story and in the Daniel Sylva series. He has a great voice.
The flash backs at "ton son ute 1968" got me.
Another great Longmire book. The best thing is the characters are real and human. You do not need to suspend "reality" when you listen.
I did think Walt's possible interest in Vic did seem our of character for a man so clearly all about right and morality.
This was another great installment of the Walt Longmire mysteries. Not only does the mystery and suspense keep you engaged, but the characters are so vivid. I wish they were real people! Particuarly love Walt's relationships with Henry Standing Bear and Vic.
Great plot. I loved the two mysteries in one format.
The only thing I have to say against this book is that the pause between the end of a chapter and the beginning of the next one is WAY to short.... less than one might pause when reading the end of a sentence. It's quite jarring.
The story - the mystery - the friendships - clever dialogue
Probably, but Walt's relationship with Vic is really creepy. She's a much younger woman who once jumped on his ****. She refers to dating as "sport f***ing" (I'm not kidding) and when a Vietnamese girl is murdered, she imitates the jargon of wartime prostitutes. Yikes!! I might be done with the series - that character is really distracting. (Maybe if you are a middle aged, lonely man it would be appealing.)
He is fabulous! Never a bad performance.
Vic was super creepy - her imitation of Asian Prostitute alleged lingo was offensive, sort of racist, vulgar.
Sorry it's taking a weird turn.
