"Sheriff Walt Longmire had already rounded up a sizable posse of devoted readers when the A&E television series Longmire sent the Wyoming lawman's popularity skyrocketing. Now, with three consecutive New York Times bestsellers to his name and the second season of Longmire reaching an average of 5.4 million viewers per episode, Craig Johnson is reaching a fan base that is both fiercely loyal and ever growing. In Any Other Name, Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life. With the clock ticking on the birth of his first grandchild, Walt learns that the by-the-book detective might have suppressed evidence concerning three missing women. Digging deeper, Walt uncovers an incriminating secret so dark that it threatens to claim other lives even before the sheriff can serve justice--Wyoming style"--… (more)

I liked the beginning of this book the best. There were certainly plenty of good moments in the middle and late passages. But halfway through I tired of the unkillable Walt machine. I will probably keep reading these books but not if he has to stagger back from the jaws of death every ten minutes. ( )

Longmire is back in this newest release from Craig Johnson. I have really enjoyed this series, as well as the television show (season three just started up recently). This time around, Longmire is asked to help the friend of a friend, in finding out why their spouse committed suicide (allegedly). The twists and turns that take Longmire to the final answer, are what makes these books so great. Also includes appearances from the undersheriff, Vic, and let's not forget Henry Standing Bear. To put some underlying pressure in there, Cady (Longmire's daughter) us having a baby, in Philadelphia, and "requires" his presence there ... but you know how Longmire is with a case ... like a dog with a bone.

Some days I think I'd happily just listen to Johnson write or talk about snow. Good book, absolutely fabulous feel to some of the ambient surroundings. ( )

I'm beginning to think Longmire should be subtitled mired in snow. He's always chasing the bad guys through snow, blizzards, and fog. This book has a cat of bad guys to chase and trains and Buffalo to complicate the chase. Also he needs to fly to Philadelphia where his daughter is about to have a baby. ( )

Another good one.

While there isn't anything remarkable about this adventure it is a comfortable dive back into the woods or of Walt and his friends. The Good: Some intense action in a coal car of a train. More fleshing out of Lucien and the winter Wyoming landscape.
The bad: well, nothing bad. It's a good story. But, irritating in that they aren't in Absaroka County. It gets tiring having Cady bitch constantly about dad getting to Philly. A character is introduced introduced as the sister of the latest victim and all but disappears and isn't mentioned again except at the end. Still, if you're a Longmire fan you will slip into the rhythm of the tale and enjoy it. ( )
