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.
The scene shifts were exceptionally well done and effectively fanned the flames of interest and intrigue. The insight into what we used to refer to as "Post Vietnam Nam syndrome" before PTSD became the acceptable diagnosis, is well described and tastefully presented.
"If you like the series, you'll love the books. If you've never read or watched either, do both immediately!"
Great books! Downloading the next one now:) the tv series has some major differences but is really good too. I love both!!!
