Let me begin by saying I’m a great fan of the Walt Longmire mysteries. He’s an excellent character; though I believe the ancillary characters are actually better. Henry and Vic stand out as the best of those. Now that one thing I brought up in the title; Walt’s too much of a hot dog. This is my third book and in each of them Sheriff Longmire has at some point refused to delegate and has taken on some dangerous job by himself instead of calling for back up or engaging a subordinate. If this continues it’s going to become so formulaic that it becomes a cliche and I don’t want to see this series spoiled that way. In this particular book he decides to send Henry and Dog back to the hospital with an old woman while Walt waits for a killer with one functioning eye. Before that he’d chased the same killer through snowdrifts onto an icy creek instead of calling for help. Someone should tell the author that the sheriff doesn’t have to be the hero every time. I’ll skip the review of the plot; there are already enough reviews concerning the plot of this work I’ll let those stand; this is just a point that I felt needed making.
