Book Review: Death without Company by Craig Johnson

Death Without Company (Walt Longmire, #2)Death Without Company by Craig Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My second trip into the adventures of Walt Longmire and the citizens of the fictional town of Durant Wyoming was even better than the first outing. Again the strongest part of the story is the characters themselves.

Death Without Company starts with the death of an old woman in an assisted living facility that doesn’t even look like a murder and involves more than 50 years of history of the characters in the story.

As usual the elements play a staring role and what Longmire story would be complete without a death defying battle between the bad guy, the good guy, and the environment. For extra credit this book has two of those sequences.

The only negative about these books is that Johnson tends to insert seemingly unnecessary dream sequences in every book that tend to drag on a bit before he gets back to the action.

I can’t wait to read further adventures from Craig Johnson though as the characters are compelling and the locales a nice change of pace from typical mystery fiction.

I am, at heart, a software developer though I am currently managing a small Information Technology department for a mid sized company located in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL. When I am not playing with the latest smart-phone or trying to become inspired to write code I read almost anything I can get my hands on from Pulp Era adventures to biographies of world leaders and everything in between.
