I laughed out loud many times in the conversations Henry and Walt had through out the story. Their time in Vietnam helped develop the characters more than ever.
It was very interesting to learn more about Walter's younger life. Since I was a college student demonstrating against the Vietnam War during this period and owning it in my own way, I appreciate Johnson's revisit to our this time in country's history.

George Guidall makes ANY book come to life. I do believe he could read the Medieval Housewife's Duties to her Husband & make it interesting. The story is very modern in a Western kind of way. Walt brings his slow moving, gentle understanding way to the problem & does it HIS way in the end. I love that about the books. And I love Vic too, of course!! hahaha
I love George. I often buy books simply because he's the performer!!! George IS Walt Longmire.
When I read reviews saying he was always drunk and depressed both at home in Wyoming and back in Vietnam Nam I consider skipping this installment in the series. Those comments simply were not true. Read and enjoy. I am glad I read this one and look forward to number five.
Like the great bards of Ireland, Craig teaches as he writes in a smooth informative and highly visual manner. I now look forward to my long trips with him as my co-pilot.
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."

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.
