A great addition to the Longmire series! I was inspired by the character's perseverance throughout.
Lightly and poorly plotted. While on snowshoes In a blizzard Longmire tracks a snow cat (think of a ski hill grooming machine) full of bad guys and manages to more or less keep up with them all night! A cougar turns up at just the tight time then disappears. Longmire "quietly" breaks into a remote mountain cabin with his snowshoes on and doesn't particularly alarm the occupants - give me a break. Don't waste your time on this fluff.
Holy smoke. I couldn't put this one down. Longmire never quits. It is the best of the series so far.
When a prisoner handoff goes horribly wrong and a blinding blizzard blows in, Sheriff Walt Longmire finds himself on his own in the Wyoming wilderness as he goes after a dangerous psychopath.
Very good book that will keep you reading into the early hours of the morning
The best yet from an outstanding crime writer.
This entry in Johnson's Walt Longmire series is, as bobgrant mentioned, much more focused on Walt than it is on the usual supporting cast. There are two sides to that. On the one hand, the best part of these books has always been the dialogue between characters. On the other, it definitely provides a welcome change of pace from the previous novels.
Because of the focus on the protagonist, "Hell is Empty" has a different feel than the other books, but it definitely stands out as one of the more interesting. I enjoyed it a great deal.
While others may dislike the undertones of Native American mysticism, I thought the book did a fantastic job of walking that tightrope. The reader can decide if there is something supernatural afoot, or if Walt is just going a little stir-crazy out in the wild. Read from a psychological perspective, Johnson's latest novel pulls you into Walt's disorientation masterfully, giving the narrative a disjointed and unsettling tone.
Talk about a manly mystery. This is it ! Sheriff Walt Longmire finds himself involved in one of the most difficult cases of his career. He cheats death a number of times, although even he is not sure of that at times. This story has some mystical elements to it, involving some native American people who help him and some who try to kill him. The elements conspire against him as well, including snow storms and fires. This was a roller coaster ride from start to finish.
Johnson has put Walt back in a cold and hostile environment again. This book hearkens back to A Cold Dish, the first Longmire mystery. It is change from Walt's admittedly messed up social and family life that have graced the last few books; it is really a Walt-centered book with the other characters you love receding into the background. You might want to wear a sweater for this one!
