“Spirit of Steamboat” by Craig Johnson. (Longmire #09.1)

Craig Johnson delivers another gripping Longmire story and, yet again, he does not fail to disappoint. “Spirit of Steamboat” is a longer short story, more novella in length. It begins on Christmas Eve in the “current” today of the Longmire chronology. Our Sheriff is sitting at his desk reading an aged copy of a festive…

“A Serpent’s Tooth” by Craig Johnson. (Longmire #09)

Art and music, poetry and stories can move and touch you and leave their mark on you. I am often moved by music. It might be a country song or a pop tune on the radio, or it may be a piece of classical music.  Whatever the music, some songs just lift my spirits and…

“Messenger” by Craig Johnson. (Longmire #08.2)

Craig Johnson delights us, yet again, with another visit to Absaroka County, Wyoming to spend time with our favourite sheriff. As a bonus, we get treated to some fine sweary comic quips from Vic along the way. “Messenger” is another Longmire short story. Yet it doesn’t involve a mystery and no crime has been committed…

“Christmas in Absaroka County” by Craig Johnson. (Longmire #08.1)

“Christmas in Absaroka County” is a collection of four short stories each, as the name suggests, with a festive theme. These tales give us glimpses into the man behind the badge that our Sheriff wears. And, if, after the first eight books, we didn’t already like Longmire enough, what see in these tales only further…

“As The Crow Flies” by Craig Johnson. (Longmire #08)

Our sheriff, and the hero of Craig Johnson’s excellent series, returns for his eighth adventure in “As The Crow Flies”. And what a fine addition to the canon it proves to be.

“Divorce Horse” by Craig Longmire. (Longmire #07.1)

I have been aware of the Longmire books for several years now and the excellent covers have appealed to me while I browse the shelves of bookstores. But it was only in the early days of August 2018 that I felt compelled to pick up “The Cold Dish”. Since then, I have not been able…

“Hell Is Empty” by Craig Johnson. (Longmire #07)

Some of you may have read my earlier reviews of Craig Johnson’s “Longmire” books on my blog. If you haven’t, don’t worry, you are in the majority as not many folk have visited my blog! However, if you are one of the small numbers who has chanced upon my reviews of them, then you might…

“Junkyard Dogs” by Craig Johnson. (Walt Longmire #06)

This 2010 novel is the sixth outing for Sheriff Walt Longmire, the hero of author Craig Johnson’s scintillating adventures. And, quite possibly, this is the finest of the tales in the series to date. It begins with Longmire attending an accident on the road near to the Durant junkyard, home of the notorious Stewart family….

“The Dark Horse” by Craig Johnson. (Walt Longmire #05)

Book five in this entertaining, terrific series sees Sheriff Walt Longmire go undercover in a neighbouring county.

Removed from his regular backups, deputies Victoria Moretti and Santiago Saizarbitoria, the sheriff is left alone to find a…

“Another Man’s Moccasins” by Craig Johnson. (Walt Longmire #04)

I have to confess to being quite smitten with Walt Longmire and his posse. Immediately after closing the covers of “Kindness Goes Unpunished”, I found myself reaching for the fourth book, published in 2009, of this magnificent series. And, once again I find myself deep in the captivating world of Absaroka County, Wyoming. The body…
