Overview

Sheriff Walt Longmire comes face to face with an otherworldy messenger in this hilarious short story from the New York Times bestselling author of As the Crow Flies and The Cold Dish



Sheriff Walt Longmire, his long-time friend Henry Standing Bear, and his undersheriff Victoria Moretti are returning from a fishing trip in the Bighorn Mountains when Walt receives a distress call from Crazy Woman Canyon. Forest service ranger Chuck Coon is in trouble. Walt, the Bear, and Vic arrive to find Coon and a young woman up a tree, so to speak. The unlikley duo are fending off three very real bears from the top of a Porta Potty and tell a mystifying story of another dangerous creature inside the “convenience.” When Walt, Henry, and Vic face the creature what they find may be a Messenger from the Camp of the Dead, with a very personal tie to Walt himself.



A must-have for every Longmire and Craig Johnson fan, Messenger also includes a teaser chapter from Johnson's new novel, A Serpent's Tooth.

    A great Slice-of-Life Vignette - Don't miss it!

    This was a wonderful little addition to the Longmire timeline. Lot of the Walt-Henry friendship dynamic that makes the book series so popular and isn’t as prominent in the TV series. It is classic Walt-Henry when they’re debating possible names for Cady’s baby. In this installment, they take Vic fishing, so it’s our favorite Three Musketeers. I don’t want to say too much and give anything away, but the situation they get into – and especially use Vic to get them out of it - is typical of their relationship in the books and at times hilarious. I’d love to see more of this Walt, Henry and Vic in the show.

    A little Longmire goes a long way.

    This was like a really good snack while you're waiting for the main course. After reading the whole series I found this book and enjoyed every momment. If you are a Longmire fan, you'll find this as good just too short.

    Another winner from Craig Johnson. This newest short story involving Walt Longmire, his deputy Vic Moretti, and his best friend Henry Standing Bear, will make you laugh as the three characters try to rescue a Park Ranger and a visitor from the top of a Porta-Potty surrounded by bears. Walt and Henry consider the significance of an immature Great Horned Owl trapped in the Porta-Potty as a possible messenger of the soul of Walt's soon-to-be-born granddaughter. Pooceeds from the sale of this book will benefit the Teton Raptor Center.

    Well worth the short time it took to read. Left me smiling all day.

    I thoroughly enjoy this short story by Craig Johnson. The author has such a sense of humor. I read it about the time that "Longmire" series came on TV. We are following it, thanks to my reading "Messenger".

    Really fun Longmire short story. It's short but a great story and it helps a good cause so worth every penny. Walt, Henry, and Vic are a great comedy team. They're coming back from a fishing trip when they answer a distress call. They end up fending off bears, saving something very special, and Vic ends up in deep....well you'll find out.

    Amusing short story

    I thoroughly enjoy Craig Johnson's sense of humor. As a long-time resident of Wyoming, I "get" him...even tho I don't think he is a native Wyoming-ite, he sure has the lingo down. This is a fun, short read. I'm waiting...not very patiently...for Longmire to start his new TV season and for the next book in the series to come out.

    disappointment

    I really like Longmire and thought I had a full book. This is a short story. OK, but not what I expected.

    Just enough to keep you going

    It was great to revisit Walt and his buddies in this "in-between" volume. The sense of place that is so strong in his novels is still present. I'm glad I read it since there is a veiled reference to this episode in the new book.

    "Messenger" is a short-story that offers a day in the life of Walt, Henry and Vic.In "Messenger" The threesome are returning from a day of fishing and end up having to rescue a forest ranger, a tourist and another being. Anyone who has ever used outdoor restroom facilities can appreciate this story. What I love in this story, and the books, is the relationship between Walt and Henry. Once again Walt's daughter, Cady, has asked Henry to deal with her day on a subject. Henry and Walt share a relationship where no one knows the other better. (This relationship is what is still a bit lacking in the TV show, in my opinion) Adding Vic to a "boy's day out" also made it more interesting. Anyone who loves this series will enjoy this short story. I was tempted to give it 4 stars for being too short but I enjoyed it too much and gave it the full 5 stars. The first chapter to the next book, "Serpent's Tongue" is also included - and is making me wish my days away waiting for it to be available! Spend some time with Sheriff Longmire, the Cheyenne Nation and Vic "the Holy terror" and enjoy your time in Absaroka County!
