    1. "On the afternoon of June 25th, 1876, as the heat waves rolled from the buffalo grass, giving the impression of a breeze that did not exist, Colonel George Armstrong Custer and five companies of the Seventh Cavalry rode into the valley of the Little Big Horn. Also that afternoon, Davey Force, a pitcher for the Philadelphia Athletics, went six for six against Chicago, who scored four runs in the ninth to pull out a 14 to 13 victory. Custer was not so lucky."Big Horn MountainsSheriff Walt Longmire [...]

    2. Solid narrative with guts!This is the first novel in the “Longmire Mysteries” book seriesDERN-DAY SHERIFFI have watched the TV adaptation of Longmire since its beginning.I decided to watch it since it has three cast members that I was familiarized and I like to watch them to perform:-Katee Sackhoff, from Battlestar Galactica (the re-imagined TV series) and she was honestly my main reason to watch this TV series. She plays “Deputy Victoria (Vic) Moretti”.But I didn’t mind to find too… [...]

    3. Walt Longmire is just wanting to finish out his term as sheriff of Wyoming's Absaroka county in peace and quiet. That of course does not happen. Young Cody Pritchard is found shot and dumped in with a local farmer's sheep. Don't feel bad for Cody though, he and his buddies violently raped a young Cheyenne girl. They got suspended sentences. Now someone is seeking justice for that crime. Walt Longmire is that type of character that grabs my fickle attention. Overweight, depressed, likes drinking. [...]

    4. Two years ago, four boys were put on trial for raping a Cheyenne girl. When one of them winds up dead, sheriff Walt Longmire finds himself in the middle of murder investigation. Plenty of people had cause for wanting Cody Prichard dead but who had the guts to do the deed? And are his three compadres next on the hit list?In my never-ending quest to sample what series crime fiction has to offer, I decided to give The Cold Dish a try. After all, A&E wouldn't make a crime series about a dud, wou [...]

    5. He was drinking a ginger ale and leafing through a stack of police supply catalogs. I guess she figured we have him chained up in the basement. I asked her about Jim, and she said that he was hunting down in Nebraska with some friends; geese, she said. There was a hesitancy in the way she said it that led me to believe there was something more there. So I used one of my age-old cop tricks and asked her if there was anything else she wanted to tell me. She used one of the age-old mother tricks an [...]

    6. This is the first book in Craig Johnson's long-running series featuring Walt Longmire, the middle-aged sheriff of Absaroka County in Wyoming. The books, in turn, would later inspire the television program that was named for the sheriff.This book opens with the shooting death of a young man named Cody Pritchard. It's possible that Pritchard's death was the result of a hunting accident, but it soon appears that it was actually an act of deliberate homicide. The list of suspects is unusually long. [...]

    7. [9/10]I don't think I've been this enthusiastic about a new author since discovering Dick Francis. It's not a question of Nobel or Booker Prize material, or of changing my outlook on life. It's just that I discovered something that fits me like a glove, the equivalent of a joyride - makes me feel good, makes me feel smart for figuring out the main suspect before the last page, a bit of adrenaline rush and a lot of snarky humor. Most of all it's about the characters, oddballs and loners most of t [...]

    8. I knew in the first four pages that I was going to enjoy this book.It begins with Sheriff Walt Longmire of Absaroka County, Wyoming, sitting in his office, watching the geese fly south. Ruby, dispatcher/receptionist, interrupts his musings to tell him he has a call from Bob Barnes, who wants to report a dead body he discovered when he and his son went to collect their sheep.“She leaned against the doorjamb and went to shorthand, ‘Bob Barnes, dead body, line one.’I looked at the blinking re [...]

    9. A group of friends and I have something that we like to call Forced Book Reads, where we each choose a book and make the whole gang read it. (Or at least they have to if they want the others to read THEIR book.) For my selection, I went with Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig, and now it's my friend Chris's turn, and he chose this. I would like to state for the record at this point that, as a whole, I did like this book. However, pretty early on, I noticed some nitpicky little things that started to bot [...]

    10. This was perfect delight to me. It has satisfying drama, engaging characters, and evocation of place. Often the first in a series is a bit awkward, but this one hit on all cylinders for me right out the gate.Walt Longmire, the 50-something sheriff of the fictional Absaroka County in northern Wyoming, gets a case of a young man shot by a large caliber gun likely to be an antique buffalo rifle. It turns out the victim was one of a set of youths convicted a couple of years earlier of the rape of a [...]

    11. Surprise! Surprise! Yep, books can still surprise me. Recently I saw a trailer on A&E plugging the debut of TheWalt Longmire Mystery series coming to tv with the first to be aired last Sunday. I have heard wonderful things about theis award winning series but had never read one myself. Time to turn the pages!The Walt Longmire series begins with The Cold Dish and it seemed appropriate to start right at the beginning. I knew they took place in Absaroka County,Wyoming and had that sort of weste [...]

    12. When starting this book as a result of my daughter's recommendation, I didn't think a murder mystery set in sparsely-populated Wyoming would hold my attention. When finished, I realized this was one of the most enjoyable books I've read this year, I marveled at how well-written it was, and I wondered how Craig Johnson's books had heretofore escaped my attention. This is the first of a series and I'm definitely looking forward to the remainder of the series. Johnson has created several intriguing [...]

    13. Craig Johnson’s The Cold Dish introduces Walt Longmire, long-time sheriff of the fictional Absaroka County, Wyoming. If Walt’s name sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because he has a TV show named for him (Longmire, on A&E). Some elements of The Cold Dish made it into the pilot episode, while the rest filled out the first season’s climax. I was drawn to this book by the series, as I suspect others before me have been.That may have been a problem.The titular “cold dish” is revenge, wh [...]

    14. Revenge is a dish best served cold, Historians are not sure where the saying originated, but it means that revenge is best served not fresh after the insult occurred, but after enough time has passed so that the target won't see it coming.I did seek out this book simply because I really liked Longmire the TV series that was based upon the book series as written by Craig Johnson. And to be fairly honest the book did more than satisfy my curiosity.The actual story starts several years before this [...]

    15. I have to confess that I went into reading this after having watched the Netflix series . . . twice. So it's fair to say I'm a huge fan of the characters and the (general) story telling. Seeing a movie or series from a book can give the book-reading a great lift; but it can just as easily set it up for disappointment. Usually, I love a book more than the screen version, but this time I am a bit disappointed. Let me very quickly point out, though, that I am by no means giving up on the series. Th [...]

    16. This is one of those books that takes you right in, sits you down by the fire, covers your lap with a blanket and hands you a drink. This story of a smart, seasoned and kind Sheriff just had me from the beginning. A fairly small town band of characters only add to the rich story line. A murder of a youth that was convicted of the rape of a young girl starts the roller coaster story line. The banter between the Sheriff and his best friend called Bear is so random and dry that it is just hilarious [...]

    17. Mission Complete. I have now read all twelve Longmire books (in reverse release order).I believe I started last June, so that works out to about two of the books in the series per month.The Cold Dish is a powerful work. It is quite understandable why it spawned a T.V. show and a series of books. Mr. Johnson is quite readable and highly entertaining. If one needed to categorize the book it would probably called a police procedural. The characters are supremely well developed and as a reader the c [...]

    18. Per usual, you can find this review and others like it atTome RaiderThis was my first contemporary mystery and I couldn't be more happy with this book.Walt Lomgmire is the Sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. 2 years ago 4 teenage boys were found guilty of raping a young Northern Cheyenne girl. But they were only given a suspended sentence. Fast forward to present day and one of those boys, Cody Pritchard, has just been found murdered.

    20. Walt Longmire is the sheriff of Absaroka County in Wyoming, a place where everyone knows your name and probably your business. Walt's been a widower for three four years now. His home is worse than a bachelor pad, his deputy Vic is forever giving him a hard time about being overweight, and there's mouse droppings on his cooking utensils.Despite the fact that Walt's life seems to be in a shambles, the people of Absaroka County like Walt, especially his good friend and Cheyenne Indian Henry Standi [...]

    21. It's a wonder that I read this book to begin withI saw the first episode of the television series by the same name, and it left me cold. Then I saw the novel rated highly by someone whose opinion I respect, and that made me think I should give the book a chance. I'm glad I did.I'm really not a big fiction fan, so I am very fussy about the bit of fiction I do undertake to read. I really enjoyed the old Travis McGee series, and since John D. MacDonald's death I have checked out the first issues of [...]

    22. I tried watching the TV series & didn't care for it, so I was surprised at how good the book was. It was quite a bit longer than it needed to be, but that was part of the writing style - very laid back & subtle at times. Made for a likable, humble character who was really quite a bad ass & yet a softie, too. Interesting mix. The Indian stuff was well done, surprisingly so. I liked the way it was used to describe the blizzard trek. I normally hate that, but this somehow added to the u [...]

    23. I read this because I really love the TV show, but it spoiled a lot of things on the show for me, so then I decided to not read any more. So, if there was no TV show, I would read all of them. Does that make me a bad person? Or am I just an awesome TV watcher?

    25. I enjoyed reading this book and give it a solid 4 stars. It is the first book in the series. Walt Longmire is the Sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. He has a 3 and 1/2 person department. Absaroka is not an actual County in Wyoming, but there are Absaroka mountains. I like the author's use of language, p.45"The aspen trees were a bright butter" He has captured the flavor of life on the high plains. He gets a call from a sheepherder who has found a body. He asks the location of the body and is a [...]

    26. I have no idea what I was thinking, giving this only three stars the first time I read it.It is absolutely fantastic. A mystery that you keeps you guessing, wonderful characters it's everything I love in a mystery novel.

    27. The small town of Durant, Wyoming comes alive for the reader in this modern day Western. With the Big Horn mountains as the backdrop, the Busy Bee Cafe, the White Buffalo Sinclair station, Swayback Road, Crazy Woman Canyon - they all ring true.The characters are richly drawn - Walt, the tough laconic sheriff who is inching his way toward retirement, Deputy Victoria (Vic) Moretti, who can turn the air blue with her peppery language, Henry Standing Bear, Walt's longtime friend. The female characte [...]

    28. I watched the Longmire Series when it was on TV and enjoyed it very much. A GR friend recommended reading the books so I started with the first, The Cold Dish written back in 2006. This is one of those warm and friendly type of books. A nice change to a murder mystery with a western backdrop taking place in a small town in Wyoming. Walt Longmire, sheriff for 24 years, widowed, gives us a wonderful description of the beautiful country seen thru his eyes. His friendship with Henry Standing Bear an [...]

    29. Walt Longmire is the type of guy I wanna have a beer with. He's the down to earth sheriff in a small county, with small county problems. A great backdrop for a mystery novel. It's a nice contrast to similar books that always seem to be based in major cities. Johnson's writing style is unique and simple enough to keep the story going. All in all, a tight book with a great cast and some unexpected twists.Inspired by this book, here are the characters I'd most like to have a beer with, let me know [...]

    30. Revenge is a dish best served cold. - Pierre Ambroise Francois Choderios de La ClosLe Liaisons DangereusesI met Walt Longmire on the TV show that carries his name and watched right up to the last episode before he moved to Netflix. Unfortunately, that took him beyond my reach, so I marked this first book in the series as a to-read and moved on. I must say I was not disappointed by the book, as it is just like revisiting those much-loved TV characters. I think I would have loved this book even if [...]
