Daughter of the Morning Star: A Walt Longmire Mystery By Craig Johnson: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow


“I am a young woman in modern America, living on the Rez – my life is always in danger.” When Jaya “Longbow” Long says this to Absaroka Sheriff Walt Longmire, the high schooler is only speaking the truth. Native women are murdered at a rate ten times higher than the national average, yet the numerous reasons linked to racial and economic disparities are often ignored by the general media. Jurisdiction miscommunications and confusion play a large role in this as well, which is why Lame Deer, Montana, Chief Lono Long has requested/ordered a favor from the Wyoming sheriff.

For over a year, Absaroka Sheriff Walt Longmire has been battling the ruthless drug lord and Mexican cartel leader Tomas Bidarte. Not only did he hire assassins to kill Walt, Bidarte is responsible for a countless number of deaths that includes that of Walt’s son-in-law. Their skirmishes become outright war when Bidarte kidnaps Walt’s attorney daughter, forcing the normally lackadaisical lawman on an unwavering mission to rescue Cady.

An Obvious Fact, A Walt Longmire Mystery By Craig Johnson

A request from friend and new Hulett Officer Corbin Dougherty to investigate a suspicious motorcycle accident has Sheriff Walt Longmire and his best friend Henry Standing Bear out of Absaroka County and in Devils Tower, Wyoming. The neighboring Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and its million attendees already overwhelm Hulett's minuscule police force, and the news that the crash victim was a member of the Tre Tre Nomads motorcycle gang could harken to an impending war between clubs.

The Highwayman: A Longmire Story By Craig Johnson: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow


Fans of the long-running series featuring Absaroka County Sheriff Walt Longmire return again and again to the novels for the entertaining wit and complex plots that delve into the darkest of crimes of his sparsely populated county. It is in the novellas, though, where Johnson is able to explore Wyoming’s distinct Native American culture and legends that explore the nature of man and his relationship with the land.

TV Wrinkles – New and Old

by Deborah Harter Williams


Jane and Lily as seniors? Seriously funny.
The success of the Netflix show Grace and Frankie starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin might have audiences rethinking the nature of old on television. Comedy is a time-honored way to challenge assumptions and G & F take on age and same sex marriage right out of the box. Add on interracial adoption and any number of semi-sacred cows with just enough I-can’t-believe-they-said-that to remind us that we’re not watching your grandmother’s broadcast television.

Dry Bones: A Longmire Mystery By Craig Johnson

by Cynthia Chow


Rock skipping and fly-fishing. Only in Absaroka County, Wyoming, does that mean skipping rocks to chase turtles away from a body and using a fish-hook to reel it in. Danny Lone Elk has unfortunately met his demise in his favorite fishing spot, nibbled on by the very creatures he championed. Even more inconvenient for Sheriff Walt Longmire is the discovery on Danny Lone Elk’s land of “Jen,” possibly the world’s most important–and valuable–fossilized skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Paleontologists, museums, the U.S. government, Danny Lone Elk’s family, and the Cheyenne Conservatory all contest ownership of the eight-million-dollar prize, but the one with the last word is, inconveniently, the late Danny Lone Elk.

Longmire Resurrection

by Deborah Harter Williams



It’s a new day in Absaroka County, with the old sheriff still in town but coming from another network.
Television is fickle. The show that is the darling one season gets thrown on the slagheap the next. Even the highly rated are not immune; Murder She Wrote, as many of us remember, was cancelled while still in the top 10. Latest on the chopping block—the A&E mystery/western, Longmire.

TV Mysteries From Down Under

by Deborah Harter Williams



Thank you TV creators of Oz–first and foremost for the treat that is the Miss Fisher Mysteries. Bringing Kerry Greenwood’s Phrynne (pronounced Fry-knee) Fisher to the screen is a marvelous accomplishment. If you turn the sound down and just watch the scenery and the costumes you will be well entertained, but then you’d miss out on the stories that are well-crafted, based on intriguing history and well-acted.
