On his own for the holidays, Walt is at loose ends -- and despite the woman's reticence to reveal her identity, he agrees to help her. (Bestseller)

All of us have a favorite author(s) and/or a favorite series we like to follow. Well, the Walt Longmire is my series to read, written by Craig Johnson. I know Walt so well and have been with him in so many of his predicaments and adventures, and have truly enjoyed each and everyone of them.

This short story is a bit out of the norm for both Craig Johnson and Walt, but all the same, all the elements which draw me in were there and as always, not a bit disappointed. Having a glimpse into the early days of Walt and some of the characters who will be prominent in future episodes, was a delight. As always, any adventure with Walt leaves you with something to think about, and even though a short story, this story was no exception.

If you are like me a Walt Longmire follower and have not read this book, I would encourage you to do so, for you will not be disappointed.

Not his usual style or content. He sort of lost me with the cover picture of a B-29 when the story is about a B-25. Needs to kick his publisher in the butt!

A quick novella--about an hour and a half. Smaltzy but still good.

A novella, not the usual Walt Longmire story.

Best read at Christmas.
