"Sheriff Walt Longmire had already rounded up a sizable posse of devoted readers when the A&E television series Longmire sent the Wyoming lawman's popularity skyrocketing. Now, with three consecutive New York Times bestsellers to his name and the second season of Longmire reaching an average of 5.4 million viewers per episode, Craig Johnson is reaching a fan base that is both fiercely loyal and ever growing. In Any Other Name, Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life.

Longmire is back in this newest release from Craig Johnson. I have really enjoyed this series, as well as the television show (season three just started up recently). This time around, Longmire is asked to help the friend of a friend, in finding out why their spouse committed suicide (allegedly). The twists and turns that take Longmire to the final answer, are what makes these books so great. Also includes appearances from the undersheriff, Vic, and let's not forget Henry Standing Bear. To put some underlying pressure in there, Cady (Longmire's daughter) us having a baby, in Philadelphia, and "requires" his presence there ... but you know how Longmire is with a case ... like a dog with a bone.

Some days I think I'd happily just listen to Johnson write or talk about snow. Good book, absolutely fabulous feel to some of the ambient surroundings. ( )

I'm beginning to think Longmire should be subtitled mired in snow. He's always chasing the bad guys through snow, blizzards, and fog. This book has a cat of bad guys to chase and trains and Buffalo to complicate the chase. Also he needs to fly to Philadelphia where his daughter is about to have a baby. ( )

Another good one.

While there isn't anything remarkable about this adventure it is a comfortable dive back into the woods or of Walt and his friends. The Good: Some intense action in a coal car of a train. More fleshing out of Lucien and the winter Wyoming landscape.
The bad: well, nothing bad. It's a good story. But, irritating in that they aren't in Absaroka County. It gets tiring having Cady bitch constantly about dad getting to Philly. A character is introduced introduced as the sister of the latest victim and all but disappears and isn't mentioned again except at the end. Still, if you're a Longmire fan you will slip into the rhythm of the tale and enjoy it. ( )

Any Other Name (2014) is the tenth novel in Craig Johnson’s hugely popular “Longmire Mystery” series. As this one begins, Sheriff Walt Longmire is feeling the ticking of the clock in a big way because his daughter is about to deliver his first grandchild in a Philadelphia hospital — and he is supposed to be there when that happens. But instead of heading in that direction, Walt finds himself taking on a “mercy case” in a neighboring Wyoming county on behalf of his old boss, Lucien Connally. And, as any longtime fan of the Longmire series well knows, once Walt Longmire begins an investigation, he finishes that investigation no matter what.

It seems that an old friend of Lucien’s, a competent detective of many years experience, has killed himself. At least that’s what authorities in the county are saying happened. Lucien, however, is not buying it because suicide is completely out of character for Detective Gerald Holman, so he asks Walt to see what he can find out about Holman’s last investigation. After a quick visit along with Lucien to Holman’s widow, Walt agrees to look into the man’s death despite Lucien’s warning to the widow that “if she didn’t want the answers, she better not have you (Walt) ask the questions.”

Walt soon learns that the detective had been investigating a cold case concerning the disappearance of three women from the county within just a few months. There is nothing to connect the three women or their disappearance, but when both the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department and the dead detective’s daughter pressure him to drop his investigation, Walt is determined to find out why that is. And, as Lucien warned the detective’s widow, if you don’t want to know the truth don’t let Sheriff Walt Longmire start asking questions.

Bottom Line: Probably because this is the fourth Longmire mystery I’ve read in the last few months (and that I’ve now read 14 of the 16 novels in the series), Craig Johnson’s structural pattern is becoming a little bit too predictable to me. I’ve lost count of how many of the books see Longmire in eminent danger of dying from exposure to the elements of a harsh Wyoming winter before he has a vision that gives him the advice and courage he needs to persevere in his chase of the bad guys. This time around, the weather does not quite so eminently threaten Longmire’s life, but his almost bleeding to death leads to the same result. (The visions and conversations with ghosts are something that Walt Longmire shares with James Lee Burke’s Dave Robicheaux.) Any Other Name follows the well-tested Longmire-formula a little too closely for it to ever become one of my favorite Longmire mysteries, but if you are a fan of the series (like I obviously am), don’t miss this chapter in the Longmire story.
