ok, i read the first Longmire book memorial weekend 2011. it took me until labor day the same year to read the next six, and i just finished as the crow flies. What i am saying is johnson is a fine author and the characters within his books are awesome. i actually met Craig Johnson at a book signing at the local B&N in Littleton CO. He was funny and very down to earth much like his main character. I highly recommend all the books in the Longmire series to anyone that likes to unplug for a little while.

this series never disappoints! walt is working with a new chief of police on the rez to solve a murder that first looked like a suicide. the twists and turns leave you unable to figure out the culprit. walt even takes part in a peyote ceremony, very interesting! while he is solving a murder on the rez, he is also supposed to be planning his daughter's wedding. henry is the wedding planner. the humor is subtle, but it's there. another very interesting walt longmire story. if you don't take the time to discover this series, you miss out on some great writing.

It's hard to review this book without giving it all away, so I won't say much except Johnson's storytelling gets better and better with every one, and you won't regret buying this.

This book is probally my #1 or #2 out of the first eight novels...I agree with the other reader that these books are for anyone.. I don't understand how someone can give a book a glowing Review and only give It 1 or 2 STARS...RADAR...1102-2013...

Just heard about this series from my sister on Thanksgiving and have now read all but one in the series and one of the short stories. Loved them all. I love mysteries and learning about new places and how different people live and these books hit all of those areas plus! Definite buy!

Enjoyed the story, however, Craig Johnson, you need to bring your original characters back. My husband and I have read all of your Longmire books and fell in love with them. When one of us would laugh out loud, we'd say, "What part are you reading now?" Not so with your last two books. We miss Ruby, Vic, Lucian and Longmire's deputies. This last female cop is no Vic. Adding characters is okay but don't take away your original cast. They are the ones that made your stories great, and of course, your marvelous, creative mind. We are debating if we should continue to follow your stories.

Review: "As the Crow Flies" by Craig Johnson was a good well written dialogue mystery. This author is able to show a meticulously well plotted storyline that comes together in this Wyoming/Montana Western setting. In this novel, "As the Crow Flies" Sheriff Walt Longmire's daughter(Cady) is getting married in two weeks and it seems that the area that had been reserved for this event....near the Indian Reservation is not available....so Henry Standing Bear(friend) and Walt are to make other arrangements...about a location called "Painted Warrior." They go to this area which is a lovely area with high cliffs....however Walt and Henry witness a woman that falls to her death....and the storyline picks up from there. Now, we find Sheriff Walt Longmire is now trying to help with this investigation into this persons death. Was it a accident, suicide or was she pushed? Walt is nearly killed several times and what has happened with the help of the wedding plans? Here I will say you must pick up this read and to find out! There are some very interesting characters...Walt, Henry Standing Bear, Dog,Vic, Ruby, Feds, Audrey Plain Feather, Adrian, Clarence and especially the new rough and tough Tribal Police Chief Lolo Long(who seems to have a 'chip on her shoulder...coming home from Iraq suffering from PTSD'), Henry Standing Bear and Herbert His Good Horse, head of Human Services and Artie Small Song, another war vet and his elderly mother, a medicine woman and I am sure I have left out a few. I wasn't able to detect who was the killer, so I was kept turning the pages until the end. It was very interesting to learn during my read about the 'Cheyenne Nation, the Old Man Chiefs and the Peyote Ceremony'..... simply some amazing writing. If you are in for a intriguing western mystery... you have come to the right place..."As the Crow Flies" will be a good read for you. I did enjoy this novel that was neatly wrapped up in the end and would recommend as a good read.

The Longmire TV Shows are wonderful. We have all the books in the series so far. Next we will purchase them as we can for our Nooks. I would recommend The Walt Longmire Mystery Series to Men & Women. Young & Old. Craig Johnson is a Master at Story telling. I'm from Pinedale, Wyoming I understand the areas he is talking about. The Characters.are like old friends. The Stars of the Longmire TV Show are as I would have pictured them in my mind when reading the books. All in All wonderful plots & skilled acting & writing.

Craig Johnson is from WY... so am I... he writes about country I am familiar with and it makes the books very intersting. Craig is a fantastic story teller on paper and in person. One of the best authors to come along in years. His books a full of mystery, humor and just darned good writing. I would recommend reading the series, to date, to anyone that likes western mysteries.

The thrust of this eighth Walt Longmire novel is two-fold. Walt and his sidekick, the “Bear,” also known as the Cheyenne Nation, are charged with arranging the wedding of Walt’s daughter, a formidable task for the two men. Meanwhile, they witness the death of a young woman, holding her young son, who falls off a cliff to her death (the boy survives). Was it an accident or murder? The event diverts the attention of the two, while they become involved with the investigation, although Walt is out of his jurisdiction. Complicating matters also is the fact that a new inexperienced tribal police chief is involved, and Walt sort of has to take her by the hand, mentoring her. While the story is straightforward on both levels, more important is the further insight into Walt’s personality, as he confronts the various personages with tact and psychology, especially his headstrong daughter and equally obstinate police chief. Recommended.

Walt Longmire's daughter is getting married – but where … one choice of sites is marred when Walt and Henry Standing Bear witness a young local woman fall to her death during their scouting trip. Forget the wedding plans – what happened, or more importantly, who did it? “Longmire” fan favorite Vic Moretti pretty much takes this novel off, but the void left by her absence is filled by new tribal police chief Lolo Long. (These women are WAY too much alike to get along … now watch author Craig Johnson prove me wrong in a future novel.) I'll put this as basically as possible – Longmire fans know what to expect, and they will NOT be disappointed in this book. And people who are NOT fans of the Wyoming lawman and his crew – what's WRONG with you?? RATING: 5 stars. No explanation necessary.

Longmire the show is true to the books in the same way that Midsomer Murders is true to Caroline Graham's books: the show captures the essence of the characters but takes liberties with plots, which keeps both formats fresh for viewers. The deviations between Longmire the show and Longmire the book-series continue to grow with each book; this book widened that gap. On the show, Zahn McClarnon plays Mathias, the Cheyenne reservation Chief of Indian Tribal Police. I personally like McClarnon, he chooses a lot of troubled roles so I immediately began imagining Mathias as a troubled individual with a backstory I ain't been told yet. But in the book, the tribal police chief is Lolo Long. She - yes, she - is an Iraq-veteran and new to the job. (If Lolo hadn't been such a firecracker, I probably would have continued to plug Zahn into the role during my imaginations of the reading. Her chip-on-the-shoulder attitude made such a presence that I wasn't able to swap them out, which is probably good because it's easier to keep the books separate from the show when I don't do stuff like that.) Lolo's a Lady Asskicker, probably the only female in Absaroka County who can go head-to-head with Vic Moretti and it will be interesting to see how these two get along in future books (because Vic stays in the background of this book). But, for now, Lolo's lack of experience spurs Walt into sojourning to the Cheyenne Reservation where he partners up with Lolo to show her the ropes as they try to figure out why a Cheyenne woman would take a plunge over a cliff with her baby in her arms, only to use her body in a way that saves the baby. Of course, it's murder. I guessed bits and pieces of the case but wasn't able to piece everything together until Walt did. One of my favorite things about this series: I love how personal relationships are drawn out over several books, making only brief appearances in each book. It prevents over-kill and this series, taken as a whole, is a superb example of how romances should be done.

The entire Walt Longmire series is wonderful. Mr. Johnson has really created some wonderful characters, but I have to say that I guessed (correctly) who dunnit about halfway through the book. Maybe I was only able to do so because I have read so many of his books back-to-back, so I have absorbed his style into my intuition. The action in this book was still remarkably written, and the newly introduced characters such as Lolo Long were phenomenal. So this is a 4/5 star book for sure. I loved it, but it is not one of my favorites because the surprise just was not there for me like it has been there for most of the other books in the series.
