In this ninth installment in the award-winning and New York Times best-selling Walt Longmire mystery series, the Wyoming sheriff follows his cowboy code of ethics in a religious range war that strikes a little too close to home.

I really miss Longmire on A&E but season 3 is due back "sometime in the summer of 2014" is all that's being said. Thank goodness I still have season 2 saved on my DVR so if I'm really desperate I can watch it. But listening to George Guidall read a Craig Johnson Walt Longmire Mystery is way more satisfying. For one thing, the characters have much better roles than on the A&E show and it's almost like listening to an entire season. I enjoyed it so much, I just downloaded another Walt Longmire mystery. Guidall is perfect for his books.
I am a retired school counselor (middle and elementary) and an avid reader. I am a lover of great mysteries, quirky protagonists, and medical/scientific non-fiction. I travel a lot and love the freedon audiobooks give me to drive, work, and relax while enjoying a good book. On my ipod I have eclectic musical selections as well as audiobooks. I will strive to never steer you wrong in a review.
Yes, I love this narrator although he sounds older than I imagine Walt to be (for some reason-perhaps it's the great A&E Walt Longmire series).
All of the Walt Longmire books focus on great mysteries, interesting people and Walt's sense of fairness and patience. This has plenty of all of those.
He has a laconic style that fits the character well. It incorporates Walt's patience and sense of self.
Walt is so committed to his friends that when presented with the loss one of them he expresses that loss in a very compelling manner.
I can't wait for the next book!
I love the Walt Longmire series but they are mostly read by a man who sounds old and tired. Walt Longmire is laid back not on his last legs! The reader puts you to sleep! Please get someone with more energy who can still convey the Walt Longmire character.
Yes - I am not given to listening to books over again but if I were to this would be one I would pick up a second time.
I have to confess my prejudice - I am a Longmire Fan. I had not heard of the Longmire series until the TV series came out. I enjoyed it and have loved the books. I just enjoy the entire laid back, western approach to crime and life in the Longmire character. In addition, the story lines keep me listening.
He seems to hit the Longmire persona on the head
If you like Longmire - I highly recommend.
I listen to books to be entertained... my favorite genre is a "Legal Thriller" I have actually been a member since 2001. Love my books!
I spend so much time listening to books and I frequently find that I run out of books. This is a case of "I ran out of books by my favorite authors so now what do I do?" Along comes Craig Johnson and George Guidal. Great combination!
I was so delighted with this book that I now have to get the whole series. I can hardly wait to start with book 1.
I really enjoy the Walt Longmire character books BUT I am usually listening while I drive. I like George Guidall's "craggy" voice very much BUT it is hard to hear in the car. I can pick up the general narration and can follow the story but he tends to speak very softly sometimes. I appreciate the artistry of this but unfortunately I am not in a new car with outside noise cancelling construction! And I do have the volume up.
I don't listen to fiction again usually
The sheriff. Not flashy just solidly a good guy. Likable
Perfect voice for the main character and didn't make the women sound ridiculous
no - fine to break it up
No. Maybe if you were reading the book, it would be easier to keep track of the many characters. But listening to it, especially in short stretches in the car, made it difficult to remember who's who. The plot includes not one but two compounds of religious zealots who become kind of interchangeable.
Maybe. I like the Longmire TV series, so I could perhaps be persuaded to try an audiobook one more time.
The interaction between Walt and Vic.
The gradual unfolding of the story.
I listened to this out of order. Now I have to go back and read/listen to them all in order.
He begins with the sheriff humoring an old lady by listening to her unlikely and disjointed story, then slowly circles out to a realization that her story is central to his current case, and he keeps it lively by including lots of interaction with the series' ongoing characters and their stories.
Clearly there is something wrong with me in regards to this book. I found it boring and hard to finish. This book has an incredibly high 4.5 average with over 750 ratings. I have hardly found a book with so few negative reviews. Almost every reviewer raves about this book. I just don't understand why? I kept listening to it in the hope that it would improve but it never did.
