    Story
    "Absolutely Amazing !!!!"

    I believe there is no more powerful combination of writer and reader than Johnson and Guidall.
    I have listened to every book in the series, and watched every show in the TV series.
    Johnson tells stories that wring every emotion in my heart and soul. As a retired cop, I deeply appreciate the combination of brutal truths and moral ambiguities that are the result of our human condition.
    It just sounds so much better the way Johnson tells it, and when Guidall voices it!
    Thank you both for the rare treasure that is "Longmire".....

    "Love the characters."

    Characters are great. Well developed.
    The actual story is a bit jumpy, but quite satisfying.
    I will be going on to the next in series.

    Story
    "Kept you guessing who did it!"
    What did you love best about The Cold Dish?

    It was an easy listen even with all the different story lines.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    The Sheriff and Henry. The relationship & interaction between them made me want to hear more of their story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was really surprised at the end when the killer was revealed. I didn't have any idea that this character was the killer.


    Any additional comments?

    I tried this author because of a special sale but I would like to listen to more of his books

    "Well developed story"

    This is well developed murder mystery. Each character is appropriately developed. This was a nice read with vivid landscapes.

    "What an Impressive Debut"

    A cast of distinct "characters", action, great dialog, well written. I'm looking forward to the next one. I made the mistake of trying the tv series on Amazon Prime midway through listening to this.

    They are very different animals and I suspect that those who came to the books via the television series will be as disappointed as I was by TV as I came to it through the book.

    "Better than television series."

    Listened to this book because I'm a fan of the t.v. series and was pleasantly surprised that the book followed a much different plot line. I love the main characters, and you get more personal details from the book. The narrator did a good job, but his versions of female characters was a stretch.

    This was the first book I read by Craig Johnson. It exceeded my expectations and was very well written, as well as being very entertaining.
