The Western Star

The thirteenth novel in Craig Johnson's beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series the basis for the hit Netflix series LongmireSheriff Walt Longmire is enjoying a celebratory beer after a weapons certification at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy when a younger sheriff confronts him with a photograph of The Western PDF twenty five armed men standing in front of a Challenger steam locomotive It In conclusion this will most likely be the last Longmire book that I will read and that goes for Craig Johnson as well This book did me in regarding this series and to tell you why would consist of giving too many spoilers yes plural and I just don t want to do thatSome supporting information regarding the book The story consists of two time lines one of which takes place in the 1970 s and the second takes place currently Jumping between timelines sometimes as much as three or four times per chapter is poorly written and at times uite off putting and poorly executedIn the 70 s time line Longmire is recently out of the army and is hired by Lucian Connolly as a deputy sheriff He has graduated college and served two tours of duty in Vietnam along with his friend Henry Standing Bear Longmire has also recently married This would make him and his best friend Henry s age somewhere in their late twenties or early thirtiesThis portion of the story takes place on what is perhaps the last and uite powerful steam engines still operating This is also perhaps the third Longmire involving trains Just sayin A murder occurs on the train which is filled with all of the sheriff s in the state celebrating an annual get together by carousing and drinking copious amounts of liuor When the train stops Longmire gets off the train and immediately gets hit in the head suffers a concussion and the train departs With his head bleeding a gaping open wound he stumbles into a nearby bar seeks aid and a ride to the next town where the train will make a stop The only ride available is a hippie bands tour bus It is implied that this is perhaps Jefferson Airplane s tour bus During the ride of course a beautiful lady named Grace emerges form the rear of the bus and wants to do the nasty with Deputy Sheriff Longmire Of course every woman he encounters wants his inputThe other half of the story pertains to activities occurring in the present time This would place Longmire and Henry s age into their mid to late seventies and Lucian s somewhere into his upper nineties They perform stunts people of this age would be unable to performAt best all of the additional regular characters are less than cardboard cutoutsSo that s it for me however you may love this book

Craig Johnson å 5 Summary

Takes him back to when fresh from the battlefields of Vietnam then deputy Walt accompanied his mentor Lucian to the annual Wyoming Sheriff's Association junket held on the excursion train known as the Western Star which ran the length of Wyoming from Cheyenne to Evanston and back Armed with his trusty Colt and a paperback of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express the young Walt was ill prepared fo There are pedigreed dogs like the ostentatious Lowchen the uppity Samoyed or the haughty Tibetan Mastiff You know dogs that demand belly scratches at all hours of the night eat only organic chicken browned in a low sodium broth and when you toss them a tennis ball to fetch they look at you like you just ripped out a fart And then you have the mutts Sloppy goofballs that wag their tails even when you are berating them for eating the drapes and are always up for a walk even in a torrential downpour Mutts just want to hang with you and make you happy Craig Johnson s mystery books about Walt Longmire Sheriff of Absaroka County Wyoming stand completely in the mutt category The Western Star is the 13th book in this series and like a mutt it doesn t strive for much it is only too happy achieving some fun Really it don t need nothin but a good time and how can we resist It ain t looking for nothin but a good time and seriously it don t get better than this Maybe it will bark at some suirrels maybe it will give a harmless mail carrier the hairy eyeball maybe it will just sit there and lick it s anus Hey it s all good as long as we re having a good time A skilled writer Johnson can do fun This time around we got Walt reminiscing about that time in the early 70 s You remember finally back from the swampy jungles of Nam he was just starting out as a deputy sheriff to Lucian Connolly He was on that train The Western Star with all those neighboring sheriffs for the annual meeting of the Wyoming Sherriffs Association when people started getting killed and thrown off the train But who can you suspect when everyone is a sheriff We also flip periodically to the present day where a much older Longmire is in a lather about a mysterious convicted killer supposedly serving a life sentence getting a compassionate release from jail Is this connected to the murders from the 1970 sIt s a pleasurable diversion this mongrel really wants you to smile The story moves at a rapid pace and there is a wonderfully creepy scene that takes place in the mental ward of a prison The ultimate mystery however holds together as well as a subzero degree snowball Note scientifically during temperatures that drop below zero it is too cold for snow to weld into a larger solid ball Thus my example indicates that the mystery doesn t hold together much at all The killer s motives are depressingly outdated and than a little intolerantunenlightened The holes in the solution can be so big that you could probably drive the Western Star train through them and the cliff hanger of an ending was surprisingly downbeat though it sets up the next book in killer fashion Still all in all the book was an exciting and worthwhile read but not one of the stronger additions to the series

    This is book 13 in the Longmire series I have enjoyed all of them This book is told in two threads one present day and one in 1972 They do connect at the end and there is a cliffhanger for those of you annoyed by cliffhangers The book opens in the present day with Walt coming to a parole hearing for a murderer he arrested in many years ago Then the flashback seuence starts in the same chapter somewhat confusing

    There are actually two stories one from the past that eventually coincides with the present but the reader is jostled a little by the back and forth momentum IMO And at the end we are left with a huge problem that was somewhat negl

    Again Craig Johnson has cranked out an engaging story full of memorable characters with the star sheriff that is being Walt Longmire of Absaroka County Wyoming It is not serendipitous that Walt climbs aboard the Western Star train with 25 other sheriffs with a copy of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express under his arm Nuff said

    An excellent entry in the Longmire series that is used to set up the next book because this one ends with a cliffhanger This is basically two tales in one including murders on a sheriff's train from the 70's and another one in today's world when the original murderer is up for release due to health reasons Johnson is the
