What the Critics Say

"Johnson combines a vivid sense of the dailiness of life--and the way human relationships take root in that dailiness--with a sure--handed touch for jolting both his characters and his readers out of their comfort zones and deep into harm's way. It's hard to ask for more in a literary mystery." (Booklist)

    "What a wonderful find!"

    On the face of it, the book didn't seem like my kind of mystery. Sherrif in Wyoming? Sounded a bit like a Tony Hillerman book. Tony Hillerman's books are good, don't get me wrong, but this book is really special. The characters are human and very real, not stereotypes, the plot unfolds naturally, the dialog is right on. Nice, dry humor (just my style). And there is a real, plausible mystery at the heart of the story. George Guidall, the narrator, reads everything with just the right touch of irony. I can't recommend this book enough.

    "Simply the best"

    Craig Johnson is now my favorite author. This is the second of his books I've read and it even exceeds his first, Cold Dish. Johnson is an immensely talented writer. Aside from the good mysteries, he has created unforgettable characters and sense of place. He combines a fantastic wit with just enough warmth to make you care about the characters and the story. I'm not a writer, so I can't do it justice...

    Finally, George Guidall does a _superb_ job of narrating this story. By God I think he was born for such a time as this. Don't think I've read a more perfect author and narrator combination (and i have read many, MANY audio books.)

    "Longmire is the Man!!!"

    Walt Longmire is my hero! I love all of Johnson's characters as they are real people with real problems doing the best they can. Walt is real, but he's got style! The storyline keeps you on the edge of your seat, but comfortably on the edge. You will enjoy the ride. Guidall is the only man for the job with these characters. The other two Craig Johnson/Walt Longmire books available are awesome as well. Listen & Enjoy!

    "Another good storyline"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death Without Company to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version so therefore, I have to assume it would be the same. I enjoy listening to George Guidall bring the characters to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It would be a tie between Lucien and Walt. They are both trying to make sense of life.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The old indian woman firing the gun at Walt when he enters the trailer.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The description of the woman being beaten by her husband.

    "Walt and Henry Ride Again!"

    Craig Johnson's Wyoming tale is brought to life by one terrific reader; I've been parceling this series out, trying to make it last through the holiday season since it's treat to find a series so enjoyable. I've wanted to do "book returns" on some of my audible.com purchases, but not this one! You will not be disappointed.

    "Go George!"

    I really enjoy this series. A simple whodunnit with George Guidell's narration are what make this series so enjoyable. Mr. Guidell makes it easy to differentiate between all of the characters by his talent for voices, both male and female. He makes this book...

    Story
    "who knew Wyoming could be so interesting"

    This is my 3rd Walt Longmire and I'm officially hooked now. This was the 2nd book in the series so I'll just continue working my way through the series from here on. It's hard to believe Wyoming could be so interesting with so much going on. One thing I've learned and always suspected is that the Wyoming weather must really suck. The state feels like it is one big rock. The people who stick out living there evidently love it in spite of it all. Still the author weaves a tale that keeps you guessing right until the end as to "whodunit". Walt himself is quite the character but all of the characters are vividly brought to life in an entertaining way. If anything it's confusing trying to keep all the twistst and turns of the story straight. But, I enjoyed this one and will look forward to the next one.

    "I laughed a lot!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death Without Company to be better than the print version?

    George Guidall seems to be reading himself - it is very, very well done. And the story is quite good as well as the main character is quite reachable. I'm a fan.

    Story
    "The author paints vivid pictures with words"

    This was a wonderful experience...you could almost feel yourself freezing in the snow. There were laugh-out-loud moments and tearful moments but what I like the most about this author is that he describes the scenes with such fine detail that you can practically smell the food cooking or the donuts baking. Truly enjoyable read with enough suspense to keep me listening. I actually cleaned my entire garage before I knew it, all the time listening to Walt and Bear and the irreverent Vick.
