A murder victim might connect to Walt's past in the fourth novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire series, the basis for LONGMIRE , now on Netflix

Craig Johnson's new novel , The Western Star, is now available.

When the body of a young Vietnamese woman is discovered alongside the interstate in Wyoming's Absaroka County, Sheriff Walt Longmire finds only one suspect, Virgil White Buffalo, a Crow with a troubling past. In what begins as an open-and-shut case, Longmire gets a lot more than he bargained for when a photograph in the young woman's purse connects her to an investigation that Longmire tackled forty years ago as a young Marine investigator in Vietnam.

In the fourth book in Craig Johnson's award-winning Walt Longmire series, the though yet tender sheriff is up to his star in a pair of murders connected by blood, yet separated by forty haunted years.

I started this series from book #1. This is #4 and I still enjoy the stories, the main characters, however...with each book the language is getting more and more off-color and I find that so disappointing and totally unnecessary. I'm going to continue for a couple more books and hope it doesn't continue downhill.
If it wasn't for the language this would be one of my favorite series.

Sheriff Walt Longmire’s past meets his present in this fourth entry in the Longmire series. When a young Vietnamese woman is found dead by the side of the interstate, it is up to Walt to investigate. Initially, the case seems too easy, as a large Crow Indian is found living nearby and in possession of the dead woman’s purse.

But as Walt knows, nothing is that easy. In spite of his tainted record, Virgil White Buffalo is probably not the killer, and Walt knows this. But who would kill this woman? And who is this woman, and what is she doing in Wyoming?

Walt has quite the case on his hands, mostly because the appearance of the Vietnamese woman sends Walt’s mind back in time. Readers will find Walt frequently flashing back to his time in Vietnam. Walt’s greatest challenge lies in keeping a clear head in order to solve the case.

Even though I love Walt and this series, the flashbacks were too plentiful, too long, and too boring. If one is reading this series in order, I would advise skipping this entry.

Good writing and a quirky sense of how the author is invested in where he lives
