    "Another well written entry in the series"

    The author treats serious topics with as much respect as he treats his characters.

    In addition to a solid story, the writing is beautiful. I particularly enjoy Johnson's treatment of native American mysticism in this series. It is neither overstated nor treated as a trite superstition. Nothing that happens in the story could be called magic, or could not have happened with only common, non-mystic, explanations -- yet the beliefs and experiences of the characters are compelling and their view of the world makes us the richer for having been part of them.

    I have a friend who went through a similar set of injuries with his daughter and the treatment in this story rings true (if thankfully less detailed).

    I do wish that Guidall's cadence was a better match for the slow drawl of a Wyoming cowboy or even more so a high plains indian. He tries, but he's just too east coast. Still, he's a gifted narrator and the word doesn't suffer from his treatment.

    "Walt goes to Philly"

    At first it was strange to have Walt & company running around an eastern metropolitan area, but the characters stayed true to themselves. It was also enlightening to learn more about Vic's family- explains a lot.

    "Comfort Food!!"

    This is my go-to series when I don't know what I want to listen to--I just love it!! I'm trying not to devour them all at one time--I want to make them last, just like my mother used to tell me to do with special treats (of course I thought she was being totally unreasonable at the time!) way back when---

    This book in the Walt Longmire series was different from the series so far--it was set in Philadelphia instead of Wyoming. Unique--and very interesting! And the supporting characters were all different--well, related but different!! And as always, George Guidall was the perfect narrator.

    I highly recommend this book, and all the books in this series. It is currently my very favorite series in my ever-growing audio library--

    I did not preview the narrator before buying this, I could not stay interested because all of the characters sounded the same and - sorry but I could not get past his breathlessness.

    "Very Good!"

    I really like the Walt Longmire series! Craig Johnson does such an excellent job in portraying all the characters and the story with humor and wit. The plot is always very good! These books are so much better than the TV show "Longmire", but I like the TV show too! However, they only have 50 minutes to tell a story on TV, with the book you get details. I enjoy these books, so does my husband. We listen together while driving.

    "Just gets better and better"

    What else can I say.....I love this series. The way Craig continues each book where the last left off (kinda) really appeals to me. Each book builds on the last and really fleshs out the characters. I usually finish one and move to the next. Spend your credits on this series and sit back and enjoy. You are in for a treat.

    "Out of sorts"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I'm like all of the Longmire Mysteries so far and this one is no exception.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the idea of taking the characters out of Wyoming and dropping them into the city of Philadelphia. The story is a bit wild but fun to listen to.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    I think George is the perfect voice for Walt Longmire and all the other characters he portrays while tell the story.
