I enjoyed the second book in the Walt Longmire series. It was an interesting story going into Lucian Connally's life. I would say more but that would spoil the book! Onto book 3!
This second entry in the Longmire series picks up about a month after the last case (A Cold Dish).
The death of a resident at the Durant Home for Assisted Living is not just an ordinary death. Mari Baroja was poisoned. And she was worth a lot of money. And if that’s not enough, Mari had a relationship with Durant’s former sheriff, Lucian.
Who killed Mari? Why? It’s up to Sheriff Walt Longmire to find the answers and survive yet another complex and harrowing murder investigation.
I enjoyed this novel more than the first entry in the series. Now that the setting and characters have been established, Johnson is better able to focus on the mystery and the dialogue.
A promising series.
This is the second in the series of books about the sheriff in a small Wyoming town.
It's OK without being especially interesting or thrilling. As with everyone in fiction land, the sheriff has his demons that he must carry.
I note that most of the women in this book are gorgeous and many of them have the hots for the sheriff.
There is now a TV series based on the books. Equally 'not bad'.
Walt Longmire is the sheriff of Absaroka County in Wyoming and Death Without Company by Craig Johnson is the second book about his cases. This time, an elderly woman dies in the Durant Home for Assisted Living and every one assumes her heart finally played out, everyone except for one other resident in the home who is loudly shouting, “Murder”. Walt immediately seals her room and orders an autopsy, as this other resident is the former sheriff whom Walt trained under.
Once again Craig Johnson delivers a top notch mystery full of complex characters. His knowledge of the area shines through in his vivid descriptive writing. He weaves the story skilfully back and forth in time, delves into the background and history of his victim and creates a plot rife with greed and secrets.
This is proving to be an excellent series, and Death Without Company is a highly readable addition to it. All the characters that I met an enjoyed in the first book have returned, along with some new additions that help flesh out the story. I am looking forward to my next trip to Absaroka Country.
