Review

"Bracingly ruthless and unsentimental."--"The Washington Post"
"Top-notch....Johnson's hero only gets better--both at solving cases and at hooking readers--with age." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Well-crafted...filled with endearing characters and nonstop action." --"Library Journal" (starred review)
"Once more, you can count on Longmire...for action both physical and cerebral, a bit of humor and romance, and a mighty good mystery." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire's eleventh case takes him out of his jurisdiction....Those who have followed the series all along will find no reason to stop now."--"Booklist"
"[Johnson] has hit a home run....Indeed, this may be [his] best Longmire mystery yet."--"Wyoming Tribune Eagle"
""Any Other Name" is yet another fast-paced novel filled with Johnson's brand of Wild West humor and quick wit."--"Deseret News"
"Suspenseful and always entertaining....The 11th Walt Longmire mystery is one of the best yet."--"The Oklahoman Review"

Praise for "A Serpent's Tooth"
"Suspense propels the brisk plot, complemented by a sly sense of humor and a breathtaking look at Wyoming."--"Publishers Weekly" (Starred)
"Authentic....The story moves at a brisk pace, with room for some good-natured humor and plenty of gorgeous Wyoming scenery."--CNN.com
"A tense, action-filled story with Johnson's usual touches of humor and romance."--"Kirkus"
"Maybe [Johnson's] best one yet."--"Charleston Gazette"
"Johnson employs his trademark humor, many literary allusions, a cast readers can't help but love and Johnson's obvious love of the land he's writing about. Readers will experience the West in all its grandeur while Walt battles the evils trying to encroach upon his beloved county."--"Shelf Awareness"

Praise for "As the Crow Flies "by Craig Johnson:
AN INDIE NEXT PICK
"Walt continues to be excellent company because he's always keen to learn something from the strong Indian characters in this series...This time a wizened old medicine woman takes Walt in hand, guiding him through a Native American Church peyote ceremony deep in the woods...he [has] a vision that expands his mind and helps him solve the case."--Marilyn Stasio, "The New York Times Book Review "
"A top-notch tale of complex emotions and misguided treachery..." Crow" is a superb novel steeped in the culture of the American West."--"USA Today"
"The pleasure of the series rests in Walt's narration, with its laid-back, observant, bemused recounting of events...Solid landscapes, a melange of fully fleshed characters (familiar and new), drily laconic dialogue and assorted power struggles--including Walt's endless war with Rezdawg, Henry's recalcitrant, falling-apart truck--keep the latest in this rich and satisfying series on engaging course."--"Houston Chronicle"
"Walt's voice lets readers in on his gentle and wry nature, while showcasing his devotion to bringing bad guys or gals to justice...Johnson enriches his narrative by using the setting itself as another well-developed character. Johnson's Northern Cheyenne characters defy stereotype with self-depreciating humor and strength. Chief Lolo Long and Tribal Chief Lonnie Little Bird are especially well-crafted and appealing."--"The Denver Post "
"Johnson expertly highlights his conflicted hero's dual role as father and sheriff in this deeply satisfying installment."--"Publisher's Weekly "(starred review)
"All the elements his fans love are present: lively characters, easy banter, and, of course, a touch of the supernatural. In early books, Walt was less sure of himself, but, in his eighth adventure, it makes sense that he's now the one "giving sheriff lessons." This book fits the hand like a well-worn glove."--"Booklist "

By Marablaise TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 11 April 2015
Format: Hardcover
Sometimes I think Walt Longmire takes his job to serious. As Lucian Connally, his old boss, says about Walt in this book; “Because he’s like a gun; once you point him and pull the trigger, it’s too late to change your mind.” That sums up Walt pretty well. He just can’t let go of things. Even when he gets hurt, and let me tell you, he usually ends up with at least on visit to the hospital in every book, at least it feels like that.

Lucian asks him for a favor in this book, a simple request to visit a widow to a recently deceased police. She doesn’t believe that her husband killed himself and Walt agrees to look into the suicide even though all evidence points to suicide and not murder, and even though his daughter Cady is in Philadelphia ready to give birth and want her daddy there. Luckily he has his friend Henry Standing Bear and his trusty deputy Vic Moretti by his side.

I probably had to high expectations after the last book. The ending in the last book had me in bits since I was worried that one of my favorite characters wouldn’t pull through and also since the ending reviled something unexpected and tragic. I found the case in this book a bit lacking. The book was never dull to read, but the case, the suicide that led to missing women wasn’t just my cup of tea. It just never really got intense, not even the ending. It was a good book, but since I have waited to read it for months, longing for it, to have Vic and Walt to have the big talk about what happened in the last book and they just skimmed on the surface. So now I have to wait for the next book to see if they will have a heart to heart. I liked it better when I had all the published books to go through instead of this hellish waiting...

I love these books since I found them after having seen the tv series, and have read the whole set (so far) through twice. Craig Johnson is an excellent storyteller, and keeps the reader gripped by the mystery, entranced by the scenery, and laughing with the occasional flashes of high comedy. Oh, and cry, too, once in a while. I keep recommending them to readers, so I do to you now. Tip - if you're new to the Longmire world, start with Cold Dish.

This is another great book by Craig Johnson. I have all the previous books in the series on Kindle but could only get this in hard back. Worth every penny! Craig Johnson has me hooked by the first page. Walt Longmire is a great loveable character, the sort of man you would like as a friend & he has a fantastic friend in the character Henry Standing Bear. In this book Walt is supposed to be heading to Philadelphia for the birth of his first grandchild but gets sidetracked into looking into a suicide in another county. Will he make it to the end of the book in one piece? Will he get to Philadelphia in time for the birth? Read it to find out, you won't regret it!

I don't normally buy hardbacks, but after reading all the other books in the series, there was NO WAY I was going to wait for the paperback version! It was worth every penny!

Love the way that this man writes! My only moan is that you have to wait for the next fantastic novel to come out, and I cannot make myself read any slower.

Not the usual standard........The author seems somehow to have given Longmire a personality transplant! He's not the Longmire fans have come to know and love. I'm not sure what's happening here but the transition rom "real good guy" to "who gives a monkey's " isn't working for me. The story is a bit loose, and the "wit" a little thin and dated. I'm a an, but a disappointed one this time.

Great Storytelling once again from this author.Walt Longmire is one of several brilliantly drawn characters in as exciting a plot as all the others.It's witty ,gritty and full of adventure.There is some sadness in the case Walt takes on but that's life.I recommend all this series from the beginning as the personal life of Walt does develope throughout although they all stand alone.
