The inspiration for AE's Longmire finds himself in the crosshairs in the ninth book of the New York Times bestselling series The success of Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire series that began with The Cold Dish continues to grow after AE’s hit show Longmire introduced new fans to the Wyoming sheriff As the Crow Flies marked the ser. Review from my site at “Do you think there are crazy people in our country than anywhere else” Walt’s latest project has Vic Moretti wondering about the mental health of her adopted state You see Barbara’s son is worried about Barbara’s stories that angels are doing her household repairs And eating her fried chicken While Walt speculates that the wide open space attracts those who need a certain amount of space I’m thinking Absaroka County Wyoming isn’t all that different People just have space to let their crazy run wild Just wait until Vic meets Van Ross Lynear and his twelve spaceships It turns out that the angel is a teenage boy who has been kicked out of a local Mormon based cult When Walt goes looking for the teenager’s mother he gets stonewalled by cult members who refuse to allow him on to their well guarded property Lacking probably cause Walt tries various ruses to get a closer look but the cult members have some significant connectionsAt any rate this was series redemption Relationship issues are present but take a back seat to matters of a religious sect and a missing woman Characters really are uite interesting and there are than enough people introduced to make for a complex puzzle of relationships It’s always nice in an ongoing series when it isn’t immediately obvious who the ‘red shirts’ are There’s a fair amount of humor here mostly in the form of the wide variety of people we meet particularly an elderly man claiming to be over 200 years old but also from Vic’s wildly inappropriate cop humor Along with Vic the Cheyenne Nation assists in investigation and resolution“‘Edgar Lynear was the first to ask from the other side of the truck bed ‘We’re not already arrested’‘Not yet but if I do it goes on your permanent record’‘What’s a permanent record’I turned and looked at Henry ‘Doesn’t seem to carry the weight it used to’”The writing has a nice balance of action and imagery“He rammed his way past her but to give her credit even with a bloodied nose she clung to his pant leg as he dragged her along with him I made the four strides between us just as the pants slipped from his narrow hips He darted into the living room bounced off the room divider and hurtled through the doorway I watched helplessly as he skimmed off the porch and was gone like a sidewinder”There’s a few points when I wondered if Walt was really considering what he was doing or that Johnson was being consistent with character but I was happy enough to follow along with the action and not get too caught in the details At points Walt actually caused harm than the normal the old timey sheriff causing both personal and property damange I suspect the tv series is showing influence giving the readerviewer the emotional satisfaction of rough justice Likewise there’s a traumatic event that really serves no purpose except to provide an easy justification for vengeance I found this time I appreciated Vic providing a analytical viewpoint to Walt’s kind heartednessOverall I’d say despite a few shortcomings this book is proof that the series is still worth my time There is something to be said for a feel good story where bad guys will lose good guys will triumph and redemption is possible

A Serpent's ToothIes’ highest debut on the New York Times bestseller list Now in his ninth Western mystery Longmire stares down his most dangerous foes yet It’s homecoming in Absaroka County but the football and festivities are interrupted when a homeless boy wanders into  town A Mormon “lost boy” Cord Lynear is searching for his missing m. One of the attractions of visiting Absaroka county is that I never know beforehand what I’m gonna get and what kind of wacky locals will cross my path Craig Johnson is doing a good job trying to find a new angle for each new episode in the career of local Sheriff Walt Longmire and while I enjoy the continuity of several character arcs I like even the stand alone self contained nature of each novel and the new directions that the author tries out“A Serpent’s Tooth” may uote Shakespeare in the epigraph and deal in a way with the children trying to break free of the rigid rules of their elders but for me the novel is structured like a homage to the classic Westerns of the fifties Wyoming is particularly apt as a setting for the wide open spaces its decrepit ghost towns and the cranky solitude loving locals I mean the ones who are not preaching naked from the rooftop of their ranches or building a spaceship in their backyard Deputy Vic Moretti captures the anachronisms of the situation in her signature foul mouthed style while Walt does a good impersonation of John Wayne Vic joined me on the walkway our boots ringing in the silence of the town like some Anthony Mann Western She lingered for a moment and as if on cue a slight wind came up and powdered its way through town Her voice was low but I could still hear it “No fucking way” I read the book on my recent holiday and I had a lot of fun with it without detracting from the seriousness of the theme and from the dramatic moments that put than a few of Walt Longmire’s deputies in mortal danger Classic Westerns also relied on crude humour to relieve some of the tension from the confrontations between the good guys and the bad guys Trying not to spoil these jokes the reader is invited to find the connection between visiting angels and Oreo cookies why a vintage Playboy magazine is hidden in the same place as the Gun Buyer’s Annual catalogue who is trying to resurrect a famous Teapot Dome political scandal from the 1920’s what the hell is ‘scours’ ; view spoiler calf diarrhea hide spoiler
