Love these stories! Especially the western setting and Walt. ALERT: unlike the TV show, in the books the female deputy cusses incessantly. Her favorite word is the f- word.

As a kid, I read a couple of my grandfather's Zane Grey westerns. Those were the last westerns I ever read. There seems to be a television show called Longmire, which is also the name of the main character in this series. I've never seen that show. I read this book cold. Craig Johnson is a terrific storyteller and Walt Longmire is among the most likeable of characters, although I was on his daughter's side the entire time. "Any Other Name" does not drag itself out, which is good because there is a very real and important deadline for Longmire to solve a puzzling suicide and a series of missing women while dealing with Wyoming winter snow, buffalo, visits by spirits of dead friends and a level of insanity that might be a lot more scary in a novel set on the East Coast.

Craig Johnson did it again. Captivating read. His characters are so rich. They come to life on every page. GREAT READ!

Another great story about Walt Longmire. He sure gets himself into alot of situations. Would like to have read more of Henry and Vic. As always, tense until the last sentence.

I’ll admit, first off, I’ve never read any of the other Longmire novels and I’ve never seen the TV adaptation. Did this keep me from enjoying ANY OTHER NAME? Definitely not! In ANY OTHER NAME Sheriff Walt Longmire has been asked by his mentor and former boss Lucian Connally to investigate Detective Gerald Holman’s apparent suicide. In the meantime, Longmire’s daughter is expecting to give birth to her first child at any moment and is pleading with him to come to her. The case quickly spirals downward as Longmire discovers a deeply buried secret which may cost the lives of many others before the case is solved. Walt doesn’t give up until the case is closed and thankfully he’ll have some help from his girlfriend Undersheriff Victoria Moretti and Henry Standing Bear (aka The Cheyenne Nation). ANY OTHER NAME is an excellent mystery with Western flair. I especially liked how there were facts about the West Longmire shares which play into the story later on down the line. The action and suspense is intense and I became a fan of Walt Longmire after reading ANY OTHER NAME.

The 10th book in the Walt Longmire series does not disappoint. Boy howdy it's good! Walt is once again dragged into danger by former sheriff Lucian Connolly and has to figure how what's going on while Lucian sits around shooting coffee pots! To make it all the more intense, Walt's first grandchild is due any day way over on the East Coast and he keeps missing his plane rides. Full of intense moments often interlaced with Johnson's trademark dry humor this book is a fully enjoyable read. So much so that when I finished it I turned right around and reread it the next day. If you like modern westerns, if you like a lead character who never gives up and if you like fully developed characters interacting in a dangerous situation I highly recommend reading this book and the others in the Walt Longmire series.

I had decided to linger awhile before I opened up my world to this particular read, but then I reevaluated my original decision and decided a few more of you need to get on the Craig Johnson bandwagon before we run you over. Whether I decide to drive this truck, or sleep in the passenger seat, this is one ride filled with beautiful prose and strings of curse words (courtesy of Victoria Moretti), a rather large Indian, and more than a little folklore and Wyoming history weaved through its elegant pages. And that doesn’t even include the man himself. Longmire, or so the TV series goes, but most of you probably know him as Walt. He may have his way with the ladies, and he hates to run for more than a mile or two, but he can drink a longneck better than any redneck, and he has friends who can commune with the spirits, so yeah, he’s got that going for him. He’s also a bit stubborn, and he has this habit of actually finishing his cases, and not leaving a single man…or woman behind. To top it all off, he’s on the verge of his first grandchild, and he’s been left to the Wyoming elements more than once in his life, but that just means he’s gotten good at dealing with the cold and the snow and even a few coldhearted souls who show their fangs at the first available opportunity. With a lingering sensation at the back of my neck and hairs standing at attention saluting the sky, I charged through this read with my elbows out and my game face on, and I plunged into a universe filled with more than just dead bodies. Victoria “Vic” Moretti might just be one of my favorite fictional characters of the female persuasion. She’s got a mouth on her that could get you arrested in Colombia, and she has more curves than the letter S, and she nips earlobes and other available body parts at will. Boy howdy. That’s all I have to say about that. Now that I have picked my jaw up with the back of my right hand, we’ll move on. Dickzilla. Not to be confused with Bridezilla can be one evil bastard. He’s not known for intelligence, or even a slight amount of competence, but he’ll lead the charge and stomp you into the nearest cow patty. But once you hose yourself off, you’ll soon realize it’s nothing personal. ANY OTHER NAME certainly made me loud and proud and more than a little glad I had the opportunity to do so before the masses. I was entertained for the better part of this tale with my six-shooter on my right hip, and my wink ready to go, along with my cowboy boots and sweet lass on my right arm. But if you really want to see Craig Johnson exhibit his true talents, you may want to start a bit earlier in this series. If you’re a longtime fan, or even if you’ve fired off a round or two with the man himself, you may find yourself happy you hopped along for the ride. I received this book for free through NetGalley.

A wonderful addition to the series. In Any Other Name, Walt is supposed to be on his way to be with Cady when she has her baby but instead he gets roped into helping Lucian with a new case. He doesn't have much time to solve the case because he HAS to be there for his daughter. The only problem is the case turns much more dangerous and more complicated than he thought. At least he has help from Henry, Vic, Dog, and Lucian. Lots of action and as usual lots of heart.

I love the book but dealing with mispelled words in the Nook version is discouraging. Can you say SPELL CHECK?

I enjoy the Longmire series because of the joy in exploring other cities and learning about other states.  This story centers in South Dakota and Wyoming, and of course, the season is winter.  The majority of the Craig Johnson books plummet snow everywhere, and of course, Walt must have a vision/dream.  Cady is down-to-the wire in baby mode, and is expecting Walt to be at her side when the next generation arrives.  Walt, a true blue lawman, must capture the villain before he heads to Cady's side.  The journey must contain several life threatening escapades for Longmire, the grizzly that never stops.  Vic and Henry Standing Bear make brief appearances to aid Walt.  I like Johnson prose, and his characterization, but Walt's superhuman fights are too much.

A great read. Thrilling and fairly accurate to the locale. Thank you Mr. Johnson.

As all Longmire fans I looked forward to #10 but I was disappointed. The humor was there but I had to really suspend disbelief on this one. He was injured too much and way too often to keep going and just once I would like to see him put his daughter before a case. He loves his job more than anything else and I assume that is Mr. Johnson's decision to not break the mold. I know, I know if it ain't broke don't fix it but if a daughter and granddaughter do not mean more to him than is loyalty to Lucian I don't think anything can give Longmire perspective.

Once again, Walt's family gets pushed aside because he's like a hound on a scent, trying to find a murderer and three missing women. But Walt's loved ones should be used to it by now - every book in this series has built up that aspect of him. That's what makes Walt legendary - he goes above and beyond the call of duty. He doesn't give up. I love how this series draws out the personal relationships between characters over the course of several books. Half the time, I come back just for those brief snippets of romance, be it between Walt and his daughter, Cady, or Walt and his bestie, Henry Standing Bear, or Walt and his lover (I've not mentioned a spoiler in the reviews of this series; I ain't starting now. But, for those of you who have only seen the show, Walt has a lover and you need to read the whole series to get that story-line because it's offered up piecemeal through every book). The briefness of those "family moments" juxtapositioned around the brutality of Walt's job adds a poignancy to those moments that isn't captured in straight up romance-novels. I love how Johnson handles that plot device - it works because it keeps bringing me back for more.
