The best writer and the best reader get together
All of Craig Johnson's books can stand alone, but they really are best listened to in sequence, all of a piece, as three volumes of one story. While I am annoyed that this book took so long to show up in audible.com, I couldn't stop listening to it. The mystery is inconsequential to me; I just like hanging out with Sheriff Walt and Henry Standing Bear. I enjoy the mystery, but I'd keep right on listening if they started a cooking show or discussed particle physics. George Guidall is that good with his reading and acting skills. He must do all of them, as no one else could voice these characters properly. I don't want to wait another year for the next installment of life on the plains and the usual at the Busy Bee. These aren't books, they're a life. May Longmire have a long and multi-volume career. And Dog needs more lines in the next one. He got shunted aside this time. He deserves better than hanging out with Ruby all the time.

Can't get enough
This series just has me hooked on the characters, the plot and the locations and history. George Guidal has never been in better form and I can not imagine anyone doing justice to these characters as well as he does. I hope Mr. Johnson never allows anyone else to read his novels.
If you haven't listened to any of his books yet, go back and start with " A Cold Dish" and work your way forward. IF you like a good mystery with excellent writing you can't find better.
