An Obvious Fact by Craig Johnson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An Obvious Fact by Craig Johnson is a Viking publication.
“There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact”
The Walk Longmire series by Craig Johnson is an auto add for me. I love, love, love these books!!
This twelfth installment has Walt and the Bear traveling over to Hulett, near the Devil’s Tower monument, right in the midst of the Sturgis rally to investigate a hit and run accident.
As usual, I chuckled often at Walt and Henry’s banter, especially with Henry on a Sherlock Holmes kick, which has him quoting the famous detective at every turn.
But, the case they are trying to help with just keeps getting more and more curious… and a little personal, too, especially for Henry, as his beloved ’59 Thunderbird, the one he named ‘Lola’, gets an unexpected starring role, and the ATF sticks their noses into matters, as well.
This story is a slight departure, having a different backdrop, but our favorites are all present and accounted for- Henry, Walt, Vic, and dog, but a few characters must weigh in from afar, and others not at all, but we get to see another side of Henry, or at least a part of his past, which is most interesting.
“Leaping to conclusions before one has the facts is the mark of a true amateur.”
But, the atmosphere is mostly the same with the trademark humor, witty dialogue, and non-stop action, plus a unique cast of colorful characters that keeps Vic and Walt on their toes, and some pretty intense moments of suspense to cap things off.
Overall, this book is as well written as all the previous chapters, and is another vastly entertaining addition to his wildly popular series.
