Well written thriller.
Being first in the Longmire series, this book sets the stage by introducing the characters and the terrain, which serves as a character.
This book may be a little too wordy even if Sheriff Longmire isn't. There are some things introduced that then fade away. (Longmire trying to get into shape, for instance.)
Still, this is a good series, and it's always best to read the first book.
Loved this book. The characters are awesome. So much better than the tv show.
Finally an author who combines great wit with an uncanny ability to bring his characters to life. I suspect I shall now be reading the rest of the series and wishing for more! I highly recommend to both men and women -- thanks, Craig, for sharing your talent!
I fell in love with tv show on A&E, now I am in love with books.
I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one. Well written and never slow. I really got to know the characters and to like them. I could almost hear and see them.
Think of it as a cross between Wyatt Earp and Elvis Cole.
This was an amazing book to read. Had a hard time putting it down. Nice work on story plot and though it was rather easy to know who done it mid way through it was still great to wait to see how it all played out. I will be getting the next book ASAP!
Johnson has a unique ability to capture Wyoming as its known to those of us who've spent our lives here. I love the characters and plot, but the complete accuracy of life on the western edge of the Powder River Basin and the base of the Bighorn Mountains makes it a must read.
Craig Johnson has managed to create characters that I would personally like to know. That is the highest praise I'm capable of bestowing.
