Description du produit
Revue de presse
"It's the scenery—and the big guy standing in front of the scenery—that keeps us coming back to Craig Johnson's lean and leathery mysteries." —The New York Times Book Review
"Johnson's hero only gets better—both at solving cases and at hooking readers—with age." —Publishers Weekly
"Like the greatest crime novelists, Johnson is a student of human nature. Walt Longmire is strong but fallible, a man whose devil-may-care stoicism masks a heightened sensitivity to the horrors he's witnessed." —Los Angeles Times
"Johnson's trademarks [are] great characters, witty banter, serious sleuthing, and a love of Wyoming bigger than a stack of derelict cars." —The Boston Globe
"The characters talk straight from the hip and the Wyoming landscape is its own kind of eloquence." —The New York Times
"[Walt Longmire] is an easy man to like. . . . Johnson evokes the rugged landscape with reverential prose, lending a heady atmosphere to his story." —The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Stepping into Walt's world is like slipping on a favorite pair of slippers, and it's where those slippers lead that provides a thrill. Johnson pens a series that should become a 'must' read, so curl up, get comfortable, and enjoy the ride." —The Denver Post
"Johnson's pacing is tight and his dialogue snaps." —Entertainment Weekly

To my mind, one of the best Longmire, a rollercoaster ride from the very first words to the end. The story is full of humor, as usual Johnson's characters are witty and often hilarious. I hope this story will be adapted into an episode of the Longmire TV series.

The underpinning of this book is the partnership between Longmire and Vic. While acknowledging what has transpired in the earlier books, this story looks at the working relationship between the sheriff and his ferocious, foul-mouthed, wickedly funny deputy. She might give him endless s**t, but she always has his back when things get rough. Even Henry takes a back seat to Vic in this one.
Don't worry. There's still a murder or three to be solved, Walt still has to take some cringe-worthy licks like he always does, and there's still an action-packed ending. But he isn't as personally invested in the case this time. The injuries he sustains this time are more comical than life-threatening -- he immediately forgives the girl who sends him howling onto the night with a blast of bear spray to his face and the dog that bites him in the ass -- and the only person laughing harder at his misfortune than us is Deputy Vic.
The Walt Longmire in this story is an approachable, nice guy who is quick to laugh at himself and the situations he finds himself in, and who cares about his county and the people in it. A light refreshment for Longmire fans.
The dialogue in this book seems particularly excellent and it serves to give the reader a much better appreciation of the speaker’s character. For example, Henry Standing Bear, sometimes called The Cheyenne Nation by Walt, never uses a contraction when speaking. He will always reply, “That is true,” instead of “That’s true.”
The plot is complicated as usual and much of the action takes place outdoors in severely cold weather and deep snowfalls. Basque deputy Santiago Saizorbitoria has been affected by the violence and considers quitting to find a more peaceful occupation but Walt and deputies Moretti and Ferguson help carry the workload. Author Craig Johnson gives you plenty of suspects to consider but the guilty party seems to always be the one whom you least suspect.
