This book started out promising, the first few chapters were well written and had me interested in the story. But by the middle of the book I felt that the author was adding in way too many characters and side stories to stretch the story to a required number of pages. I finally just skipped to the last chapter because I couldn't force myself to trudge through the meaningless fluff in the middle. This would have been a much better read without the forced middle part of the book.
If you enjoy Craig Johnson's Sheriff Longmire, you might like this one too. Gorman's characters aren't quite a vivid as Johnson's but they lively enough. He adds lots of humor (a pretty good trick when there are dead bodies everywhere)and lots of plot twists. George Guidall does he usual stellar job of narration.
