This is another great book in the Walt Longmire Mystery Series, and at 3 hours, 44 minutes, "The Highwayman," offers a novella-length introduction to the series, without spoilers. ("The Cold Dish" is book 1 in the series).
I particularly enjoy and appreciate the books in the series which touch Native American spirituality and traditions. I am not an authority on Native American spirituality, nor am I of Native American heritage, however, Craig Johnson seems to address Native American beliefs, spirituality, and customs in a respectfully.
George Guidall's narration is masterful! His slow and patient manner reminds me of a loving grandfather sharing tales of his own adventures and misadventures with his children and grandchildren. However, this is a series for adults and older teens--not children. Some of the books in the series contain strong language, but I didn't notice any here.

This is one of the best ghost stories I've ever read.
And it's one of those books that grab you by the lapels and doesn't let go until the end.
If this is your first Walt Longmire book, there are only one or two details that might be confusing, like the significance of Bear. But you'll catch on quickly.
For those who are longstanding fans you might miss the presence of Vic Moretti. Surprisingly, I didn't. Maybe because... oh never mind, I'm not going to give ANYTHING away.
I will just add that there were parts of this story that made the hair rise on the back of my neck.
Craig Johnson is one of our best contemporary writers. His knowledge of and research into Southwestern lore and native American customs help create that "alternate world" many of us love to spend time in.
Finally, George Guidall... a master narrator. He nails Walt.
