As the Crow Flies By Craig Johnson, Another Longmire Mystery

IN THE June 3 ISSUE

FROM THE 2013 Articles,
andMysteryrat's Maze
SECTIONS

by Ted Feit

Since we failed to see any new movies this weekend I thought it would be fun to share a review of yet another Longmire mystery by Craig Johnson-this one just released in paperback. Check out our review & giveaway of his newest book in this issue, along with a fun interview with Craig!

The thrust of this eighth Walt Longmire novel is two-fold. Walt and his sidekick, the “Bear,” also known as the Cheyenne Nation, are charged with arranging the wedding of Walt’s daughter, a formidable task for the two men.

Meanwhile, they witness the death of a young woman, holding her young son, who falls off a cliff to her death (the boy survives). Was it an accident or murder?

The event diverts the attention of the two, while they become involved with the investigation, although Walt is out of his jurisdiction. Complicating matters also is the fact that a new inexperienced tribal police chief is involved, and Walt sort of has to take her by the hand, mentoring her.

While the story is straightforward on both levels, more important is the further insight into Walt’s personality, as he confronts the various personages with tact and psychology, especially his headstrong daughter and equally obstinate police chief.

Recommended.
