Day and one in 1972 They do connect at the end and there is a cliffhanger for those of you annoyed by cliffhangers The book opens in the present day with Walt coming to a parole earing for a murderer e arrested in many years ago Then the flashback seuence starts in the same chapter somewhat confusing and it took me a while to separate the two We learn about Walt and is start as an Absaroka County Deputy Sheriff The flashback seuence takes place during a special steam trip across Wyoming and as some steam train trivia if you are a steam train buff This was a library book35 starsMy wife also read this book The cliffhanger and the alternating threads did not bother er She says 45 stars There are pedigreed dogs like the ostentatious Lowchen the uppity Samoyed or the Cosmological Enigmas haughty Tibetan Mastiff You know dogs that demand belly scratches at allours of the night eat only organic chicken browned in a low sodium broth and when you toss them a tennis ball to fetch they look at you like you just ripped out a fart And then you At Hells Gate have the mutts Sloppy goofballs that wag their tails even when you are berating them for eating the drapes and are always up for a walk even in a torrential downpour Mutts just want toang with you and make you appy Craig Johnson s mystery books about Walt Longmire Sheriff of Absaroka County Wyoming stand completely in the mutt category The Western Star is the 13th book in this series and like a mutt it doesn t strive for much it is only too appy achieving some fun Really it don t need nothin but a good time and ow can we resist It ain t looking for nothin but a good time and seriously it don t get better than this Maybe it will bark at some suirrels maybe it will give a armless mail carrier the Hunted by Herne (Otherkind Kink: Horned Gods, hairy eyeball maybe it will just sit there and lick it s anus Hey it s all good as long as we reaving a good time A skilled writer Johnson can do fun This time around we got Walt reminiscing about that time in the early 70 s You remember finally back from the swampy jungles of Nam Lady Lorena’s Spinster’s Society he was just starting out as a deputy sheriff to Lucian Connolly He was on that train The Western Star with all those neighboring sheriffs for the annual meeting of the Wyoming Sherriffs Association when people started getting killed and thrown off the train But who can you suspect when everyone is a sheriff We also flip periodically to the present day where a much older Longmire is in a lather about a mysterious convicted killer supposedly serving a life sentence getting a compassionate release from jail Is this connected to the murders from the 1970 sIt s a pleasurable diversion this mongrel really wants you to smile The story moves at a rapid pace and there is a wonderfully creepy scene that takes place in the mental ward of a prison The ultimate mysteryowever On the First Night of Christmas holds together as well as a subzero degree snowball Note scientifically during temperatures that drop below zero it is too cold for snow to weld into a larger solid ball Thus my example indicates that the mystery doesn told together much at all The killer s motives are depressingly outdated and than a little intolerantunenlightened The P.S. Im Pregnant holes in the solution can be so big that you could probably drive the Western Star train through them and the cliffanger of an ending was surprisingly downbeat though it sets up the next book in killer fashion Still all in all the book was an exciting and worthwhile read but not one of the stronger additions to the series There are actually two stories one from the past that eventually coincides with the present but the reader is jostled a little by the back and forth momentum IMO And at the end we are left with a Tigress for Two (Alaskan Tigers, huge problem that was somewhat neglected and we willave to wait to read the next book to continue the seriesThe Cult Science Fiction Films historical story about th An excellent entry in the Longmire series that is used to set up the next book because this one ends with a cliffhanger This is basically two tales in one including murders on a sheriff s train from the 70 s and another one in today s world when the original murderer is up for release due toealth reasons Johnson is the master of cool witty dialogue and that is Crime and Punishment here in spades Recommende.

Good effect Leonardo da Vinci here Longmire s first murder investigation in 1972 resurfaces in present day I thinke wrote this story as a device to use the Western Star a steam locomotive making its last run Enkätboken hauling the sheriff s association on a three day junket Trains are tension builders trapped but not trapped always moving isolated compressed Everybody on this one is drunk and they allave guns What could go wrongI like the atmosphere of the train and it made me realize why Johnson s writing is so endearing Like the train Longmire and the other characters create an idealized society akin to the old west as visualized by Hollywood I d recommend The Tin Star with Henry FondaJohnson also continues Introduction to the Spiritist Philosophy his ever unresolved multi book mega plot the story of a Mexican bad guy who wants revenge on Longmire This plotas wriggled near the surface for the last three books in the sense that some irrational murder will occur and they ll all take a moment to wonder Hey I wonder if it s THAT guy This book annoyingly ends with a strong cliffhanger for that long range plot Ha I guess we Play Me, Im Yours have to read the next book though like the writing of George RR Martin I m sure there won t be any resolution there either Again Craig Johnsonas cranked out an engaging story full of memorable characters with the star sheriff that is being Walt Longmire of Absaroka County Wyoming It is not serendipitous that Walt climbs aboard the Western Star train with 25 other sheriffs with a copy of Agatha Christie s Murder on the Orient Express under Health at Every Size his arm Nuff said Having enjoyed uite a few episodes of Longmire on video I thought I ought to try a book from the series for the first time I found theumour to be enjoyable but I don t think I will read another one It probably reuires starting at the beginning for it all to make senseLibrary Loan In conclusion this will most likely be the last Longmire book that I will read and that goes for Craig Johnson as well This book did me in regarding this series and to tell you why would consist of giving too many spoilers yes plural and I just don t want to do thatSome supporting information regarding the book The story consists of two time lines one of which takes place in the 1970 s and the second takes place currently Jumping between timelines sometimes as much as three or four times per chapter is poorly written and at times uite off putting and poorly executedIn the 70 s time line Longmire is recently out of the army and is The Kings Witch (Frances Gorges Trilogy hired by Lucian Connolly as a deputy sheriff Heas graduated college and served two tours of duty in Vietnam along with Polvere alla polvere his friend Henry Standing Bear Longmireas also recently married This would make Wyoming Triple Heat him andis best friend Henry s age somewhere in their late twenties or early thirtiesThis portion of the story takes place on what is perhaps the last and uite powerful steam engines still operating This is also perhaps the third Longmire involving trains Just sayin A murder occurs on the train which is filled with all of the sheriff s in the state celebrating an annual get together by carousing and drinking copious amounts of liuor When the train stops Longmire gets off the train and immediately gets An Imperfect Spy (A Kate Fansler Mystery hit in theead suffers a concussion and the train departs With Trial Run / Whip Hand / Twice Shy hisead bleeding a gaping open wound ძვირფასი სიცოცხლე he stumbles into a nearby bar seeks aid and a ride to the next town where the train will make a stop The only ride available is aippie bands tour bus It is implied that this is perhaps Jefferson Airplane s tour bus During the ride of course a beautiful lady named Grace emerges form the rear of the bus and wants to do the nasty with Deputy Sheriff Longmire Of course every woman I, Claudius he encounters wantsis inputThe other Six Thinking Hats half of the story pertains to activities occurring in the present time This would place Longmire and Henry s age into their mid to late seventies and Lucian s somewhere intois upper nineties They perform stunts people of this age would be unable to performAt best all of the additional regular characters are less than cardboard cutoutsSo that s it for me Chicken Soup for the Soul however you may love this book This is book 13 in the Longmire series Iave enjoyed all of them This book is told in two threads one present.
