”I thought about how this was not how it was supposed to end, with her providing cab service for the Feds and me walking away. In a perfect cinematic world, we would’ve captured the bad guys in spectacular fashion with explosions, car chases, and a parting kiss. She would’ve been played by Ava Gardner, and I would’ve been played by Robert Taylor.”

The irony...

Great book, although I guessed the whodunnit correctly, which is good of me, but I like to be surprised. I missed Vic, I hope she is has a larger part in the next book. ( )

My favorite sheriff Walt Longmire saves the day again. I just love this series!

This time we miss most of the usual cast of characters, as Walt is teamed up with Lolo Long, new tribal police chief as they investigate a potential homicide. The colorful folks Walt works with and investigates over the course of the case make the story fun even as the body count mounts, and we still get enough of a dose of Henry and Dog to make it typical Longmire.

Time marches on, and in the end the greatest legal mind of our time enjoys her nuptials. It remains to be seen what is in Walt's future. On to book #9!

That's now seven Longmire books finished in two months - Johnson needs to start writing faster or I need to find another author with a lengthy canon. ( )

As the Crow Flies opens with Henry Standing Bear planning Cady Longmire’s wedding. Only weeks before the wedding he discovers the outdoor venue is double-booked with a Cheyenne language immersion class offered through the Dull Knife College. Standing Bear and Longmire are faced with confronting Arbitus, the formidable college librarian who has made the arrangements for the class. The chief of the Northern Cheyenne declined to help them negotiate with her, claiming, “That librarian over at the college is mean. I don’t like to mess with her…She’s in charge of all the books over there and she’s full blood-that’s pretty much the worst of both worlds.” Instead, Henry and Walt resort to scouting out an alternative location. Sheriff Longmire finds himself dispensing wedding advice to the greatest legal mind of our time and coaching a rookie officer on police procedure.

More light-hearted than Hell is Empty, we touch base with several returning characters including Lonnie Little Bird, FBI agent Cliff Cly and Rezdawg. Johnson introduces a new character, Tribal Police Chief Lolo Long, who has a possible murder to solve with very little police training but a huge chip on her shoulder. Johnson’s characters are the kinds of people you would want as friends. They are intriguing and funny yet incredibly human and resourceful.

Johnson’s other books include (in order), The Cold Dish, Death Without Company, Kindness Goes Unpunished, Another Man’s Moccasins, The Dark Horse, Junkyard Dogs and Hell is Empty. All of these books can be found on the shelves of the Lied Scottsbluff Public Library.
