I like this Sheriff Walt Longmire series because of the characters and the Wyoming setting. I tend to like series where the core characters return and move on through time and life events. I really like the reader of the audiobook versions, George Guidall.

Although I haven't read all in this series, I liked this one a bit more than some of the others. I think that is because this one has Longmire's good friend, Henry, back in a larger role along with more depth to the Cherokee society in modern times, because the character Victoria Moretti has very little presence in it ( I found her to be too abrasive to develop any sympathy towards the character), and there was more depth given to previously unrevealed feelings Longmire has/had for his deceased wife and somewhat estranged daughter. The mystery was pretty good, but I don't think there were enough hints given for the eventually revealed who-did-it to justify this as a well-crafted puzzle. Even if I don't figure it out before the end, I like to feel that there were enough clues given that the perpetrator could have been guessed at.

I would recommend this to adult readers who like mysteries that are not quite cozies and that are more character driven than suspenseful and violent. I still feel that this series is very similar to the Posadas NM Bill Gastner series by Steven Havill.
