    Craig Johnson has won multiple awards and earned starred reviews from Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews for his New York Times best-selling Walt Longmire mysteries. Embarking on his eighth adventure in As the Crow Flies, Sheriff Longmire is searching the Cheyenne Reservation for a site to host his daughter’s wedding, when he sees a woman fall to her death. Teaming up with beautiful tribal chief Lolo Long, Walt sets out to investigate the suspicious death.

    Story
    What did you love best about As the Crow Flies?

    Mr. Johnson has returned to the style that first hooked me back in book one. Wry and witty comments mixed with beautiful descriptive prose.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of As the Crow Flies?

    I am an old grizzled Viet Nam vet who found himself tearing up at the wedding scene in the epilogue. But then again, I have been known to get misty when watching commercials for baby diapers... Go figure...


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    In my mind, Mr. Guidall has become the voice for Walt Longmire and Henry Standing Bear. His slight changes in vocal timbre and inflection are right on the mark. I get the feeling that Mr. Guidall loves reading these books as much as I love listening.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The fact that I find myself laughing outloud throughout the book is such a joy. I so look forward to Mr. Johnson's work!


    Any additional comments?

    My dear friend passed away a few short months ago. Over the years, we would download our Walt Longmire books and, after completely devouring our respective copies, we would pour a couple of Rainier Ales and rehash our favorite parts. I miss him dearly and I'm afraid he missed one of the best books in the series...

  • Dust and Shadow: An Account of the Ripper Killings by Dr. John H. Watson

    Breathless and painstakingly researched, this is a stunning debut mystery in which Sherlock Holmes unmasks Jack the Ripper. Lyndsay Faye perfectly captures all the color and syntax of Conan Doyle’s distinctive nineteenth-century London.

    "Really Enjoyed"
    Overall

    I have been a Sherlock Holmes fan for longer than I care to remember. While not a classic Holmes yarn, the overall "feel" of this story was close enough for me. I thought the writing captured the flavor of Holmes and the England of his time. In addition to a very good story, the narration was outstanding. What a difference an excellent narrator can make.

    Story

    In the remote wastelands of Greenland, an ancient artifact possessing catastrophic radioactive power is unearthed. But the astounding find puts the world at risk. Caught between two militant factions bent on wholesale slaughter, Juan Cabrillo and his network of spies, known as The Corporation, must fight to protect the stone - and prevent the outbreak of World War III.

    Christopher says: "Great book... horrible narrator"
    "Laughable"
    Overall

    Laughable story, ridiculous dialog (reminds me of my attempt to write a play in 10th grade english class), and horrible narration. Enjoyed some of Cussler's other works but not this one. A real struggle to finish.
