I like the Longmire books much more than the Netflix series. The TV characters in some ways are better cast than the characters in the book - especially Vic, but also Walt and Henry. However, the stories themselves and the situations just seem more real with less artificial drama in the books. I have read the entire series and this was definitely one of my favorites. The case itself was interesting with an extremely interesting side-story about the history of the painting of "Custer's Last Stand". I loved the old military vets with their souped up motorized wheelchairs. I definitely see possibilities with the new character of Brandon as well as a life for Walt as an investigator if he finally steps aside as sheriff (hinted at as a possibility in this book) since he can still be in a position to interact with Henry, Vic, Brandon's sister LoLo and the other interesting characters in both Absaroka county and the sheriff's departments in other neighboring areas.

Another great Longmire book by Craig Johnson, this one brings some art history to the storyline, as well as a fun group of Veterans. If you're a Longmire fan, you'll enjoy this one!
