Walt Longmire has been the Sheriff in Wyoming's Absaroka County for 25 years, but nothing could have prepared him for the savage attack on his daughter, Cady, a Philadelphia lawyer who has unwittingly become embroiled in a political cover-up.

He's willing to pull out all the stops to find Cady's attacker and show the big city that this old-timer has a few moves left in his saddlebag of tricks. 'Johnson's pacing is tight and his dialogue snaps' Entertainment Weekly

I just don't think that Craig Johnson can write a bad book. This one is a bit different as it takes Sheriff Walt Longmire out of Wyoming and into Philadelphia. Henry Standing Bear joins him, as well as others from the series. Great insight into both Henry and Walt and even a bit of love interest for Walt! Don't miss this one!
Publishers Weekly, 2006-12-11 In Johnson's appealing third Walt Longmire mystery (after 2006's Death Without Company), the Wyoming sheriff is drawn into a messy situation in the City of Brotherly Love when his daughter Cady's ex-boyfriend is killed a few days after Longmire accuses him of being behind the assault that left Cady, a Philadelphia lawyer, comatose. Longmire's deputy, Victoria Moretti, soon arrives on the scene as her family of Philly cops tries to decide whether to suspect Longmire of murder or ask his help with the investigation. Everyone in the cast appears to be a stereotype of some sort-the Italian police clan, the Salvadoran drug dealer, the Irish publican and Longmire's eternally wise and mystical Cheyenne friend, Henry Standing Bear-but Johnson plays it for the right kind of laughs. When someone introduces Henry as Longmire's "Native American sidekick," Longmire ripostes that it's the other way around. The quick pace and tangled web of interconnected crimes will keep readers turning pages. (Mar.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
