I became interested in knowing more about the Walt Longmire Mysteries after learning that it was going to be made into a TNT series starring Katee Sackhoff, who was in one of my all-time favorite series, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. So I picked up THE COLD DISH and then DEATH WITHOUT COMPANY and then KINDNESS GOES UNPUNISHED and so on through ANOTHER MAN'S MOCASSINS, A DARK HORSE, JUNKYARD DOGS, and on to Craig Johnson's latest offering to the series, HELL IS EMPTY.
I can't express how impressed I am with this series of novels. There are a couple of things to point out.
First, none of these books are written by a formula. About the only thing each novel has in common with the others is that Walt Longmire, the sheriff of Absaroka County, gets battered and beaten in each one. The one ongoing joke, for lack of a better word, in each book is how much physical punishment Walt undergoes. But the novels themselves differ starkly from one to another. Most series reenact the same novel again and again, with only minor alterations from one book to the next. But Craig Johnson clearly refuses to take the easy path, but insists on working hard to create something new each time.
Second, these books are driven by character and are not whodunits. There are mysteries to be solved, but these are not the heart of each book. Most of the novels focus on a series of character portraits of an ensemble cast, but his most recent novel, HELL IS EMPTY focuses on just a couple of characters. But for the most part the books focus on the ensemble.Read more ›

This is one of my most favorite writers and the series is awesome. I can not wait until the next one is out. In fact I wish he could write them faster... lol...

Definitely a good read. Johnson's best to date. Movies quickly, yet keeps the humor. So descriptive that you can almost feel the falling snow.Published 1 day ago by Gayle

As always, anything with Longmire in it is a fun read. Reminds me of the best of the old Spencer novels and the best of a good western sorta all thrown into a blender and mixed up... Read morePublished 28 days ago by Jack J. Altevers
I really enjoy reading these books. I've also recommended them to my friends. These books captivate the readers. Non stop action. BrilliantPublished 29 days ago by esie fisher
I always enjoy the Longmire stories. The only thing I don't care for is the relationship between Walt & Vic. I could enjoy the stories just as much or better without that.Published 1 month ago by Louanne
