Publisher's Summary

Sheriff Walt Longmire had already rounded up a sizable posse of devoted readers when the A&E television series Longmire sent the Wyoming lawman’s popularity skyrocketing. Now, in Any Other Name, Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life. With the clock ticking on the birth of his first grandchild, Walt learns that the by-the-book detective might have suppressed evidence concerning three missing women. Digging deeper, Walt uncovers an incriminating secret so dark that it threatens to claim other lives even before the sheriff can serve justice - Wyoming style.

    "Smells Plenty Sweet!"

    "Any Other Name" is the 11th installment in the Walt Longmire mystery series. I got here because I have read the other 10 and really enjoyed most of them.

    If you're planning on reading this as your 11th Longmire too, be aware: #10 was so incredible that it's hard to imagine #11 being anything other than a slight step down.

    That said, this was still a great story. I liked that it takes place in South Dakota instead of Wyoming, which Walt calls home; the scenery, animals (buffalo), and cast of South Dakotan characters added to the entertainment value. I also liked that, when trying to unravel one mystery, Walt finds himself in the middle of another (and of course he is determined to solve them both). Despite the distance from home, Walt involves his trusty sidekicks, Henry Standing Bear and Victoria Moretti, who bring humor and clever repartee (and backup when the going gets tough) to the story.

    I suppose when one reads a series, one assumes the star of it is going to survive (otherwise, how can there be book #12?), so in that sense this books is predictable. However, I did not see the end coming as far as how the mysteries turned out!

    George Guidall was born to narrate this series. I cannot imagine trying to read these books and missing out on his amazing narration.

    One note: I believe Longmire fans are divided into those who find the occasional forays into Native American mysticism/hallucinations entertaining, and those who find it annoying. I'm in the latter group, and so found one of the chapters painful to get through, but thankfully it was limited to that one section.

    "my last Longmire book"

    As I slogged through this latest madcap adventure (sarcasm) of Walt's, I realized that the only reason to continue through to the end is George Guidall's narration. I also came to the realization that it isn't enough. Once again Walt makes completely illogical and baseless decisions based on "his word", jeopardizing his relationships with the people he professes to love. In this instance, he risks missing the birth of his first grandchild, by his daughter, whom he professes to love above all else. All the while mentally pontificating over the obligations one has to the ones that love them. The entire book is maddening in this regard.

    And once again, Walt heads off into a snow storm in Wyoming (while the book takes pains to stress that wyoming storms are nothing to to trifle with) grossly underdressed, unprepared, and with an overconfidence that should get him frozen to death. he encounters a situation in which he should die, but he is miraculously saved by ___. it is so close in plotline to the escaped convict goes up the mountain book, as to be embarrassing.

    Lastly, while I enjoyed the spirit references in the earliest couple of books, their appearance here is ham-handed and cavalier. In the past, the author had treated them with a certain reverence. Here they are plainly devices used to deliver a couple of pieces of information that could have been delivered in a more plausible way. It very much feels, and reads like he phoned this one in. Walt... I wish you well, but we part company here. Good luck. At this rate, you are going to need it.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Big Fan of Longmire"

    Narration and story line are top notch, descriptions of the wilderness, weather, all of it, put you right there. And Boy, Howdie, this one sure didn't turn out the way I expected . . .

    "the usual very entertaining book"

    I really like his books. He is funny, a great writer, and I have read all the Walt Longmire books and wished there were more. He is a very talented writer and I have recommended all his books to my friends. Everyone who has listened to the books or watched the TV versions has gotten hooked just like I did.

    "Might be the best Longmire yet"

    A great story by a masterful reader. If your looking for a good one, you found it. I've listened to almost all of them without disappointment.

    "Not his best"

    Not the best of the long more series. I listened to it out of order and this could have contributed to the overall enjoyment.
