The best thing about a Craig Johnson mystery is the strong small town western characters and a sense of place. The stories are not always fast paced but the TV series capture's the essence of the Longmire series and TV fans should enjoy the books. I am giving this book 3 stars because there are problems. I have read other Walt Longmire mysteries and I am a fan. But at times, I had problems following conversations or knowing that the location had changed. There would be location changes without any indication, such as page markers or chapter change. Characters would be introduced with given names, then Walt would start using nick names. Several times I had to stop and go back to figure out who is talking. There are portions that get slow and sections of the plot that gets far fetched. Nothing an established fan can't get through, but new readers may not be impressed. I definitely recommend the Longmire series and I enjoyed this book. But if your looking for your 1st Longmire book, there may be a better starting place. I especially enjoyed "Spirit of Steamboat".

As I stated in my review of The Cold Dish, I was introduced to the Longmire Mysteries series by the show and I like how the show gives us a different ending to the plots in the books because it keeps both formats fresh. This might frustrate some folks - those who want the show to be exactly like the books - because it mangles some of the on-going threads running through the series. I'm hoping the show will eventually get to those threads in its own way at a later date.

The biggest, and obvious, differences between the show and the books are with the characters. The show plays with their physical appearances and backgrounds (drawing out some plot-threads, diminishing others) but remains true to each characters' "spiritual essence." Robert Taylor (swoon) makes Walt Longmire a little more handsome than he should be. The book's Vic Moretti is a small brunette more than capable of going head to head with the fellas where the show depicts her as a tall and lithe bottle blond, still more than capable (and I'm in love with both versions of her - I love me some b'dass females). Henry Standing Bear is an actual Cheyenne and I don't have to pretend away Lou Diamond Phillip's Filipino-Spanish-Irish-Cherokee heritage (not complainin' about his part in the role 'cause LDP is pretty easy on the eyes too).

And, the biggest character difference of all, Branch Connally appears to be a conglomeration of different characters from the book and his uncle Lucian doesn't appear in the show nearly as much as he does in the book series. Especially this book, where Lucian is at the center of the plot: an unsolved murder from his days as sheriff.

And one of the reasons I liked this book so much is because I feel like I got a better look at the characters. Especially Walt - understanding his mentor gives me the chance to understand him better.

I don't like giving spoilers but other reviewers have already complained of the rape scene so it's out there in the multiverse. Yes, this book is a trigger for those coping with such trauma. I'm a rape victim and, though the scene is disturbing because of it's content, I wasn't disturbed to read it because, unfortunately, this kind of stuff does happen and real-life law enforcement has to deal with these scenarios every day of the week. I'm glad Johnson didn't turn away from the subject because it's "too hard" or "disturbing to think about." Ignoring rape or pretending it away is what allows these situations to keep happening. Rapists operate best when no one is paying attention. So you will see no dissing of Johnson's rape coverage here - rape is a hard topic to write about and I feel like Johnson did it justice, showing rape for what it is and what it does to people. Kudos Johnson, thank you for not tucking this topic under the rug for those who'd prefer to blind themselves. Reading is supposed to open the eyes/mind and I hope Johnson succeeds with that task.

Yes, I liked it. But here's my problem. At times Mr. Johnson jumps action from one place to another abruptly, as if he's in a break-neck hurry to move the story on. Then, at other times he loiters around like he's forgotten where he was going, kind of padding the dialog or the descriptive passages until he works his way through the knot. I loved the TV series and was eager to read the source material. But having read two of the novels, I'm ready to move on to other writers.

This is the second book in the Walt Longmire series.

As this story begins it is a few weeks after the events of the previous novel (A COLD DISH) and Walt is still recovering from those traumatic events, particularly the abrupt end of a promising romance, that left him with some regrets and a new companion - a very large dog. He is pulled out of his doldrums by a new case, one that had roots decades ago, and closer to home than Walt found comfortable. As Walt continued his investigations he uncovered more crimes, both past and present, that would probably have been better left buried.

Those who came to this series through the TV series (as I did) will find that various characters, backstories and circumstances are different in the books. Most notable of the differences involve the character of Lucien who occupies a much more significant role in the novels than in the TV show and the complete absence of 'Branch Connally' who played a major role in the TV series Both series though, offer up excellent stories involving interesting characters in a setting that always features prominently in the story..

Death Without Company (A Walt Longmire Mystery) by Craig Johnson – This is the second volume in the Walt Longmire series by Craig Johnson, and it continues the reader’s immersion into a very interesting Wyoming culture. This book mixes the Basque culture with the Native American culture. Then murder stirs to the mix of cultures and Walt, a Caucasian sheriff is tested beyond his limit. It’s an interesting, but very complex plot with a large number of characters with lots of nicknames. In fact, I had a hard time keeping track of who’s who in this story. In addition, I must agree with another reviewer about Walt having too many near-death experiences. Overall, I found Death Without Company to be a good read, but I was confused at times and doubtful that sheriff Longmire could have survived and continued to pursue the murderers.
