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.

    "Very Predicable Mystery"

    I am a latecomer to the world of Walt Longmire, I started reading the novels after I'd gotten hooked on the TV series and quickly learned that as with most TV and Movie adaptions, the book is better.
    Honestly the only negative thing I can say about this novel is that I knew by the end of the first chapter who did it and where and how the central "mystery" would end. I love the world that Craig Johnson created with Walt and his "partners in crime" and enjoy the time I get to spend with them on their adventures, but as a mystery writer he leaves a lot to be desired.

    Having read all of the Walt Longmire series within 4 months time I noticed a pattern emerge that doesn't necessarily "ruin" the mysteries, but it does kind of take away from the whodunnit aspect I enjoy about reading mysteries, but on the bright side, it does let me concentrate on the characters, and their relationships.

    I am not going to spoil the story, it is very entertaining and there are a lot of moments(though I have to admit the way Johnson worked Henry Standing Bear into the story seems like he was writing the story and then about halfway through he realized that Henry wasn't in it and just kind of had him show up just in time.).
    This is a fine entry in the Longmire series and finally gives Walt his Moriarty.

    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.

    Story
    "Completely missed the mark on this one."
    What disappointed you about Any Other Name?

    Where to start? The story is ridiculous how Walt would go investigating the death of a man he did not know due to the request of his former boss rather than attend his daughter giving birth. This is totally a non starter for me. Any real man with a daughter would not do this if at all possible. Especially since it was about a dead man who is likely to remain dead a few weeks later. What is the rush?

    I know he missed many events in Punk's life but the birth of a child? Seriously?

    Mr. Guidall acted like he was not interested in the book either. Early on you had Walt, the former Sherriff and the widow talking. The voice inflection did not change between the characters. This is something he is very good doing normally. This is totally out of his normally flawless performances. Perhaps the producer could take the blame since it is her job to oversee the performance.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am into the Bosch series as well. Perhaps the next one of that series.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall’s performances?

    Oh yes. I will return for the other Longmire books in the series. I am still a huge fan.


    What character would you cut from Any Other Name?

    Nothing at wrong with the characters overall.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to hearing the next book in the series. I trust it will be top notch as one would expect.

    "Very good. Not quite great"

    Definitely worth the listen. Longmire never fails to thrill with suspense and surprise. George Gudell great as always as the voice of Walt
