Book Description

A murder victim might connect to Walt’s past in this enthralling novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Cold Dish and As the Crow Flies, the fourth in the Longmire Mystery Series, the basis for LONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series

Fans of Ace Atkins, Nevada Barr and Robert B. Parker will love the fourth mystery in New York Times bestselling author Craig Johnson's award-winning Longmire Mystery Series , the basis for LONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series, is not to be missed. It delivers more of the taut prose, engrossing characters, beautiful Wyoming setting, and satisfying depth that reviewers have been hailing since his first book, The Cold Dish. In Another Man's Moccasins, the body of a Vietnamese woman dumped along the Wyoming interstate opens a baffling case for Sheriff Longmire, whose only suspect is a Crow Indian with a troubled past. But things get even stranger when a photograph turns up in the victim's purse that ties her murder to one from Longmire's past-a case he tackled as a Marine Corps investigator forty years earlier in Vietnam.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. At the start of Johnson's stellar fourth mystery to feature Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire (after 2007's Kindness Goes Unpunished), Walt responds to a call that leads to the discovery of the body of a young Vietnamese woman, Ho Thi Paquet, along an Absaroka County highway. Squatting nearby with Paquet's purse is a massive Crow Indian later identified as Virgil White Buffalo. When Walt finds a photograph of himself and a Vietnamese barmaid taken in 1968 among the victim's belongings, Walt realizes that the murder isn't as clear-cut as it appears. With the help of his longtime friend, Cheyenne Indian Henry Standing Bear, Walt retraces Paquet's steps and uncovers disturbing links to a California human trafficking ring as well as to his own past as a military inspector in Vietnam. Vivid war flashbacks give a glimpse of a younger but no less determined Walt. Full of crackling dialogue, this absorbing tale demonstrates that Longmire is still the sheriff in town. 4-city author tour. (June)

From Booklist

In Kindness Goes Unpunished (2007), Absaroka County, Wyoming, Sheriff Walt Longmire took a road trip to Philadelphia. In a sense, he’s on the road this time, too, but his traveling takes place inside his head, after the discovery of the body of a young Vietnamese woman prompts memories of Walt’s first homicide investigation as a marine in Vietnam. It isn’t just the victim’s origins that send Walt down a nightmare-cluttered memory lane; found with her belongings is a picture of another Vietnamese woman, who looks strikingly like someone Walt knew very well more than 40 years earlier. Juxtaposing the current investigation against flashbacks to Vietnam, Johnson is able to reveal several new layers to the fascinating character of the aging, kindly, homespun sheriff and his best friend, Henry Standing Bear, who served with him in Vietnam. This series has distinguished itself so far with its rich portrayal of human relationships and daily life in small-town Wyoming. Those characteristics are well in evidence here, but the addition of the vivid and powerful Vietnam scenes provides a welcome jolt of frisson. --Bill Ott

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best yet June 18, 2008
Having been a Craig Johnson fan since The Cold Dish, seeing the growth of this amazing author is a thrill in itself. With Another Man's Moccasins, he has taken a giant leap into serious literature (but with, of course, his characteristic humor ever-present). After the body of a young girl is found dumped by the side of the highway, Sheriff Longmire also discovers a huge, and hugely troubled Indian living in a culvert near the girl's body. These two threads take Walt and Henry Standing Bear back to their memories of Vietnam in fascinating ways as they seek to discover the girl's murderer and the story behind the disturbed Indian. The cast is all there: Vic, Ruby, Sancho, Lucian (in one of his most powerful scenes to date), Cady, and others. The writing is stellar as we've come to expect. What sets Another Man's Moccasins in a league of its own is that it is so profoundly gut-wrenching and powerful. The contrast between present day Absaroka County and Walt's memories of Vietnam disturb both Walt and the reader. And the story behind the Big Indian is a heart breaker more profound than one can imagine. How Craig Johnson created this extraordinary book is a mark of his incredible talent and growing maturity. I've loved every one of the three former books but Another Man's Moccasins towers above his earlier works. An absolute must read, and certainly not just for mystery readers. This book is powerful literature for anyone interested in issues of living with oneself, injustice, Vietnam, venality, or the human spirit as it tries to make its way in the world. Craig Johnson has outdone himself and we readers are the fortunate recipients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent police procedural July 25, 2008
The caller informs 911 that a female body lies alongside the highway in Absaroka County, Wyoming. Sheriff Walt Longmire goes to investigate. There he finds the corpse of Vietnamese woman Ho Thi Paquet; nearby sitting on the ground holding the victim's purse as if it is sacred is Native American Virgil White Buffalo. However Walt is stunned when he goes through Ho's personal possessions to find a photograph of him when he served as a military inspector in Nam with a Vietnamese barmaid circa 1968.

Walt concludes that the obvious in which Virgil killed Ho is not what happened. He and his friend Native American Henry Standing Bear investigate by trying to follow Ho's recent journey, They are shocked when the paths the young woman took lead back to a West Coast slave trafficking ring and the sheriff's Vietnam duty.

This is the fourth Longmire police procedural (see DEATH WITHOUT COMPANY, COLD DISH and KINDNESS GOES UNPUNISHED), but this reviewer's first; based on this superb tale this reviewer will have to go back to read them. The whodunit is fun to follow, but the look back to Walt's war time makes for a superior read as the present connects to four decades ago. Sub-genre fans will appreciate this engaging, engrossing thriller that ties late 1960s Viet Nam and 2008 Wyoming effortlessly together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vietnam in Wyoming October 27, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sheriff Walt Longmire of Absaroka County has two mysteries on his hands in this book, one new and one going back to his time in Vietnam as a marine inspector.

Walt's habit of saving lives seems to date back to Vietnam, and this story is told by moving back and forth between Wyoming and Vietnam. The technique is absolutely riveting with plenty of fighting and near-death experiences at both ends.

The trouble in Wyoming begins with the discovery of a body, a young Vietnamese woman provocatively dressed. Coincidentally a Vietnamese man appears on the scene, with an interest in local real estate. Walt is suspicious, but he's got an excess of good suspects, including a gigantic Native American vagrant sleeping beside the victim's purse, two reclusive brother ranchers, one not quite right in the head, and a nervous bartender who's new in town.

This book is as great a read as Johnson's first novel, The Cold Dish. Walt and his team are up against one of the nastiest issues of our times: sex and drug trafficking. Post Traumatic Stress also comes into play and is sensitively handled.

In addition to almost non-stop action, the reader can look forward to lots of deft and witty repartee between the sheriff and his best friend Henry Standing Bear - and just the right level of sexual tension between Walt and his sexy female deputy.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Like Sheriff Longmire December 29, 2009
I like the character of the Sheriff in these books, he wrote quite a few. I also like that he refers back to Viet Nam which a lot of us tend to forget. I will never forget because I had a lot of friends go over who never came home or came home differently and have never quite been the same. I picked up this book having no idea Viet Nam would be referenced, but it's actually part of the story and I think you will enjoy it very much. I purchased the entire series once I finished with this one and have actually passed them on to a friend who returned from Nam for his insights about the series. If you are as old as me, I think you will enjoy the series, if you're younger, read them anyway, it might prove to be a real eye-opener about our good men who went there and sacrificed their lives for us.
