    There's a new strong man in Russia but his rise to power is based on a dark secret hidden decades in the past. The solution to that mystery lies with a most unexpected source, President Jack Ryan.

    Story

    I don't normally write reviews, but I was blown away by the narration by Lou Diamond Phillips. I have enjoyed many of his acting performances, particularly his role in the Longmire TV series, but this is the first time I have listened to a book narrated by him.
    The storyline switches back and forth from 30 years prior then back to present day and entertwines them very well telling how they relate. Mr Phillips characterizations are excellent, with the different accents amazing.
    I look forward to more of Mr Phillips narrations.

    Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Award-winning "Old Indian Trick". This was one of the earliest appearances of the sheriff who would go on to star in Johnson’s best-selling, award-winning novels and the A&E hit series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Walt’s life that doesn’t appear in the novels; over the years, many have asked why they can’t buy the stories in book form.

    Story

    The humor is one of the things I like most in the Longmire stories. Mr Johnson injects humor, sometimes as dry wit or just plain laugh out loud comments. The characters are believable and the description of places and things make you able to see them, without going into every minute detail. George Guidall's narration could not be any better. He seems to understand the characters and brings them to life.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book, with one exception, which I will get to. The story was very good, with plenty of action. Some of it was very predictable, but, acceptable. Steven Weber gave a good performance, with one exception, which made me grind my teeth every time he did it. He pronounced corpsman: corpse-man instead of korman. A minor thing to most, but, it was like chalk on a blackboard to me. Don't get me wrong, I like Steven Weber. I always have; in movies and tv. And I liked his performance except for that one thing.

    He called her Red. She called him in from the cold. For one short moment in the big, hard city they were friends--and then the girl turned up dead. Mike Hammer will walk through walls to find out who she was and why she died, even if he doesn't like the answers he gets. Even if they are all about a seamy network of call-girls, blackmail, and hoods. Hammer owes something to Red, and he plans to make good-because in this town a friend is hard to find.

    What can you say about Mickey Spillaine's Mike Hammer? He is the prototype. He is the ones the others patterned their books on.

    Story

    First heard of Walt Longmire on the tv series. Loved it. Went back to the first book he wrote and have been listening to them in order. George Guidel does an excellent job narrating especially with the dry wit of The Cherokee. Never disappointed by a Walt Whitmire book by Craig Johnson. Like one of the other reviewers, "I wish Craig would write faster".

    I was very disappointed in "Play Dead" The storyline was very slow and this was not Mr Brick's best performance. He read in almost a dry monotone.

    When an elderly local woman is found poisoned, Sheriff Walt Longmire begins an investigation that soon has him ensnared in a deadly spider's web. From Craig Johnson, author of the acclaimed novel The Cold Dish, comes this enthralling Sheriff Longmire mystery. With a distinctive literary flair, Johnson leads us into the wide open space of Absaroka County, Wyoming.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this to a friend because I know they would enjoy the easy listen and simple but twisting story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dry wit of Bear.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The inflection and indian language.


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

    It made me laugh out loud several times, although this is not a comedy.


    Any additional comments?

    The interaction between Longmire and bear is reminiscent of Spenser and Hawk in Robert B. Parker's Spenser series.
