Publisher's Summary

The new novel in the beloved New York Times best-selling Longmire series.

One of the most viewed paintings in American history, Custer's Last Fight, copied and distributed by Anheuser-Busch at a rate of more than two million copies a year, was destroyed in a fire at the 7th Cavalry Headquarters in Fort Bliss, Texas, in 1946. Or was it? When Charley Lee Stillwater dies of an apparent heart attack at the Wyoming Home for Soldiers & Sailors, Walt Longmire is called in to try and make sense of a piece of a painting and a Florsheim shoebox containing a million dollars, sending the good sheriff on the trail of a dangerous art heist.

Historical misinformation, Fascinating!

One of Longmire’s friends dies at a VA hospital. In his room Longmire finds what he believes is an original western work of art and $1M in a shoebox. He takes the artwork around with him trying to find the history of the piece and how his friend came to possess it. He’s also trying to figure out who should get the million otherwise it would go to the government. Craig Johnson does a fantastic job weaving the story of Custer and Little Big Horn into this current tale. He details the reality of the past and contrasts it with the fallacies of the stories told to this day. Meanwhile the story of the artwork is thoroughly entertaining. George Guidall is a phenomenal narrator and once again I felt I was getting a real treat being able to listen to him. Every time he narrates a book I’m grateful he hasn’t chosen to retire just yet! Guidall is 82 years old. This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

Fantastic

I couldn’t stop listening. I’m so impressed by the road the author takes to get everything woven in the history of The Little Bighorn

My best listen since the last Longmire

Listening to this team of author/narrator makes listening to anything else disappointing. This story is really fun and the dialog is worth a 2nd listen.

Good Times with Old Friends

Craig Johnson‘s writing is nothing short of amazing! He creates memorable characters, weaves mystery with interesting facts and wraps it all up in humor to deliver a fantastic narrative experience. For me, Mr. Johnson is one of the best writers out there… Narrator of the Year 2015, George Guidall is back in Walt‘s shoes and as always, he brings all the characters to life with ease and passion, delivering a fantastic listening experience. I wasn’t able to stop listening, I kept the EarPods in for the entirety of the audiobook and when it was over I was left craving for more! George Guidall is one of my favorites narrators and I love the way he delivers the Longmire series especially. He has a warm voice, like a good and wise grandfather, he reads, he acts and combined with Mr. Johnson‘s smart and funny writing he will make you laugh out loud.

I also post honest reviews at the author, narrator, or publisher's request, you can get in touch with me for more details.

Like an old pair of slippers

Yes it is the dynamic duo... Johnson and Guidall. The story isn’t as intense as others. In this time of pandemics and politics- it is like the comfy slippers that never disappoints.

Disappointment

I love, love, love the Longmire series, but this book is soooo boring!!!! I kept falling asleep listening to it. I don't know what happened, but I'm pretty sure you could skip this one altogether and be fine when the next book comes out.

Next to Last Stant

Very boring. Very hard to follow the reader’s mumbling. My last Craig Johnson. Maybe the tv show is better.
