A good read and a fast story. Was a little confused w who's at one point. Longmire stories are always good but alwasy seem to be missing something. A little too cornball, confusing, or a missing seen. But a solid 3.5. ( )

Gods, how I hate back-and-forth in time, and bits of this felt like, "HERE IS YOUR PATH, READER," All caps an everything - but the writing has moments nearly as solid as the first book. A favorite character, new in this book, probably never to be seen again: Worth it. ( )

The Walt Longmire series is one of my favorites. I love the characters, the setting, the plots....I just enjoy the books. I also loved (and miss) the television series. The casting was perfect! There were huge changes in some characters and plots between the books and the television adaptation, but that's ok. I enjoyed both as separate, but related, Longmire stories.

The Dark Horse is the 5th book in the series. Walt Longmire knows something isn't right with a case he's investigating. A man locked his wife's horses in their barn and lit it on fire. So, the wife allegedly got a gun and shot him in the head six times. But....the facts just aren't lining up. The case is even from another county, but Longmire decides to go undercover to do some digging around. It's difficult to go undercover in a small town that only has about 40 residents.....but he wants to know what actually happened. on the ranch that night before a possibly innocent woman goes to prison for murder.

I love how the Longmire books combine rural and tribal life, law enforcement investigation, and humor to form awesome modern western tales. Vic Moretti is my favorite character. Vic is foul-mouthed, tough and very protective of her boss. She's a skilled deputy, but also a sexy woman who doesn't take any crap from anybody. I love her relationship with Walt and the way she deals with people. Awesome character! Henry Standing Bear comes up a close second to Vic. He has been Walt's friends since they were in school together. They also served in Vietnam together. Their relationship is an incredibly close one. Henry is complex....very spiritual, very loyal and rough & tumble when he has to be.

I enjoyed The Dark Horse. The plot was engaging and interesting. There were some excellent twists and side plots. Great story! I listened to the audio book version (Recorded Books), narrated by George Guidall. Guidall gave an excellent performance as usual. The Recorded Books version I got from my local library also includes a lengthy interview with author Craig Johnson. It was so interesting to hear him talk about his writing, characters and life!

On to the next book -- Junkyard Dogs! ( )

un très bon policier au parfum de l'ouest sombre et venteux. ( )
  Nikoz | Nov 4, 2020 |
A mystery with a lot of unexpected twists and turns. The evolvement of horses makes it very much a cowboy story. Walt continues to find ways of getting hurt anf also stays involved with interesting guns.
Longmire demonstrates interesting cultural asides - often subtle.
A satisfying story. ( )

"It was the third week of a high-plains October, and an unseasonably extended summer had baked the color from the landscape and had turned the rusted griders of the old bridge a thinned-out tired brown."

"It's important to me because I believe you're innocent and I've spent most of my life defending and protecting the innocent."
I watched Hershel and Benjamin, cowpokes separated by a good sixty years but joined in a brotherhood of horseback and by a thing we all shared, the want of a journey to a mystical place.
There was a lesson my mother had instilled in me at an early age, which had been reinforced by my experience in Vietnam and by my twenty-four years as sheriff of Absaroka County. She said that I should protect and cherish the young, the old, and the infirm, because at some point I would be all of these things before my own journey ended.
I remember him speaking to the horses he shod in a low and reassuring voice, explaining what he was doing to them; he said it was one of the things we owed them for their absolute, unreserved, unswerving loyalty. He said the outside of a horse is always good for the inside of a man.
