The Highwayman: A Longmire Story

We rated this book:


Highway Patrolman Bobby Womack has been dead thirty years, but it appears his ghost has returned to Wind River Canyon, Wyoming. Highway Patrolman Rosey Wayman has been hearing his voice over the radio while out on patrol. But she is the only one who hears it and that’s a problem. Walt Longmire and his friend, Henry Standing Bea, have come to the canyon to see for themselves whether there really is a ghost. Perhaps its Rosey who is in need of help, after all, the life of a Highway Patrolman is bound to be a stressful one.

I have been a fan of the Longmire television series for a while but this is the first time I’ve read Craig Johnson’s fiction. I have to say that I was hooked from the first page. It has everything one could want from a good book: great atmosphere, memorable characters, and an intriguing story line. I can’t think of another writer who brings to life the expansive landscapes of the American West along with the mysteries of the people who inhabit the area in such a magical way. This is clearly American storytelling at it’s best.
