No shortage of violence or challenge with many unpredictable scenes. Even the chase scene is almost numerous. I do miss having some of the usual suspects present - but since there are more stories to follow waiting is acceptable. ( )

The body count is high in this one. Walt tracks down his daughter who is being held in Mexico by the man he believes killed his daughter's husband and threatens everyone he loves. Walt is surrounded by a cast of new and interesting characters as he takes on this mission, a stranger in a strange land, where he obviously does not fit. As usual, Walt dances with death more than once and it gets brutal. This book resolves some important questions, except what happens next. How do the answers impact his life and others around him. Looking forward to future books. ( )

I normally enjoy Longmire books, but this one just did not click. It's set in Mexico as Longmire looks for his kidnapped daughter. That just is not where Walt ought to be. He belongs in Wyoming. The book just did not work for me. ( )

Heavy violence, somewhat depressing, not the best Longmire tale I've read. These novels come across better for me in film as I pretty much always enjoyed the TV series. ( )

What happened to this series? The series started as lite mysteries, they are no longer mysteries, nothing to solve here. Just violence (and not even exciting violence, like Power of the Dog, more like violence lite). And the best character of this series, Henry Standing Bear, only briefly makes an appearance. Feel like Johnson just phoned this one in. Hope the next one is better, or I may have to give up on this series. ( )
