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.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    Well, all good things must come to an end. This is the second Longmire book out of ten that I was terribly disappointed with.
    I realize I cannot dictate the storyline but there are somethings you just have to say: "Oh come on, now! Why would anyone do this or that". I think after reading (listening to) 10 books we pretty much get to know our characters but even though Johnson tries to justify certain things in this story they just don't add up.
    For one thing you cannot convince me Walt would put a clear cold case suicide ahead of his only daughter begging him to come help her. The guys dead and would stay dead anyway.
    And I have to admit the little hallucination scene was way over the top...getting a little tired of Walt seeing things with every hoof to the head.
    I won't say don't listen...just don't expect too much.

    Story
    "Just a little disappointed."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the Longmire series as they are my favorite audio books.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    So similar to all of the other books. His daughter needs him and once again he's not really available


    Did George Guidall do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Disappointed with Lucian voice. Since George Guidall has narrated all the Longmire books, you would think the voice would be the same. Sandy didn't sound the same either. Beginning of the book, Walt and Lucian sounded the same and I had a difficult time figuring out which person was supposed to be talking.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Familiar Themes, but Still Very Good!"

    Walt Longmire seems to get in the same sorts of trouble in every book; and encounter visions and spirits in particular times of trouble; but I still fully enjoy these great Craig Johnson books and especially George Guidall's narration.

    This is a good solid story with lots of action and a good number of twists and turns as Walt solves the mystery of the missing women from a remote Wyoming town. Vic and Bear and Lucius and daughter Katie are all major players in the story and their intermingled relationships add much to it.

    I for one have not yet tired of these familiar themes and hope that Johnson continues to write more of them.

    "Stalwart. Reliable and Sturdy"

    once again in story, character and plot Craig Johnson delivers. If you love any of the other books you'll love this one. Steady as she goes much like his most famous character Walt Longmire. like every other book in the series and the sheriff himself once you pull the trigger (read the first page/hit the play button) you can't stop this bullet in motion. George Guidall once again embodies the spirit of the mythical lawman. If you're a fan, this will be exactly what you want it to be. Great.
