Book Review: The Cold Dish (A Longmire Mystery)

The Cold Dish: A Longmire Mystery (Walt Longmire Mysteries Book 1) by [Johnson, Craig]

Like most, I came to the Longmire series dishonestly, i.e., via Netflix. The written word may disappoint those too heavily invested in liberties taken by the TV series over the course of six seasons. Vic’s not blonde. Henry is physically much more bear-like than Lou Diamond Phillips. And Walt is a lot more verbose than on the screen–which, of course, is to be expected since the book is told from the sheriff’s first person point-of-view. But the essential Longmire elements–Wyoming, the Cheyenne nation, murder and the pursuit of justice by a dusty, dedicated lawman–are all there and the story worked for me just as well and in some ways even better in novel form. (4 of 5 Stars)
