I couldn’t go back to South Dakota for the Memorial Day weekend, so I did the next best thing – I read the latest Craig Johnson book. Lucky for me South Dakota, more specifically the Sturgis Rally, formed the backdrop for the 12th entry into the Longmire books.
Johnson caught the energy of the rally in a tale involving the original Lola, Henry’s love of long ago, her son and a gun manufacturer who uses a washed-up reality star in his illegal gun trade. There’s a couple ATF agents, plenty of action (including Vic’s wild driving, Henry’s stealth and Walt Longmire’s view of the world).
There’s a long chapter involving Vic shooting competitive skeet with the gun guy. Usually I’d say it was superfluous – but it was Craig Johnson’s writing at it’s finest. It turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the book.
There’s even great chase scene at the end! I highly recommend!
Have a great week!
