Author Craig Johnson shares a story in such a way you feel a part of the adventure. In his ninth Walt Longmire Mystery, Johnson once again takes readers to Absaroka County (Wyoming) for suspense, action, humor and a touch of romance. When a ‘helpful angel’ turns out to be teenage runaway Cord Lynear, Sheriff Walt Longmire and his team begin searching for the boy’s mother. It seems the youth has been forced off a nearby polygamist compound for rebelling. The more they search, the more complex and dangerous the case becomes. They encounter an interstate polygamy group, a stock pile of weapons, well-hidden secrets, and more danger than they expected. Johnson has created intriguing characters in Longmire; Victoria ‘Vic’ Morett, his second-in-command; and Henry Standing Bear, his good friend. The secondary characters also add flavor and spark to the story. Their interaction will have you laughing out loud at times as Johnson weaves in bits of humor throughout the story. An excellent eye for detail, Johnson places the reader in the countryside with his vivid descriptions. He keeps the story moving at a steady pace filled with action and tense moments holding readers captive until the unexpected ending. A SERPENT’S TOOTH is the ninth installment in the series, but can be read as a stand alone. Sheriff Walt Longmire is a cordial man that takes his job seriously, while looking out for those he cares about. Readers will be eagerly awaiting the next visit to Absaroka County. FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

    Great Books

    I have read 10 Longmire's in a row. Spent about two days per book. Probably helps that I'm retired and have the time to do that. Wish there were more.

    The ninth book in the Longmire series is a page turner with a no

    The ninth book in the Longmire series is a page turner with a not so obvious plot twists. The relationship with Walt and Vic gets some much needed attention albeit far too brief. The one complaint about the Longmire series as a whole is the inability of Johnson to allow the readers the pleasure of knowing Walt's intimate thoughts about Vic and the complications that entails. Revealing Walt's heart would not betray the western code. Otherwise, fantastic story telling of our favorite Absaroka County Sheriff.

    Now in his ninth appearance, Walt Longmire is confronted by dual

    Now in his ninth appearance, Walt Longmire is confronted by dual adversaries when a homeless boy shows up on his doorstep. The youth, Cord Lynear, has been cast out of a Mormon cult enclave searching for his mother. Walt discovers that his mother approached the sheriff of an adjoining county, looking for her son. In attempting to reunite the two, Walt is unable to find the mother, leading him into investigating an interstate polygamy group, well-armed and with something to hide.

    It is an intricate plot, one fraught with danger for Walt, his pal Standing Bear (also known as “Cheyenne Nation”) and his deputy (and lover), Victoria Moretti. I felt Walt’s overdone bravado, and the resulting violent confrontations, were a bit overdone. But that is Walt. And TV.

    This entry in the Walt Longmire series, now also in a popular TV dramatic form about to enter its second season, appears to be expressly written to provide another episode. That is not to say it isn’t another well-written novel with all the elements of the Wyoming sheriff’s customary literary observations and acts of derring-do. It just seems to me that it’s a bit too much of a manufactured plot with an overtone of a popular protagonist and his sidekicks. That said, the novel is recommended.

    Highly recommended-excellent

    Everything Craig Johnson writes is excellent. He is a great story teller. This series of books is wonderful. I can hardly wait for the next book. His characters have depth, and the plot always leaves one guessing as to the outcome. I would reread these again.

    Longmire series just keeps getting better and better

    Craig Johnson never disappoints, in fact he keeps outdoing his last books. I just wish he would write faster, I hate waiting for the next exciting tale. Great story, great characters, great settings.

    The best Longmire novel yet, rich in detail and texture, building upon the complex characters that were created in the first eight books.

    Craig Johnson gets better and better with each new volume.
