While I'm normally a fan of the Longmire series, I was disappointed by this book. The prior book featured a cliffhanger which gets resolved in this offering. That, plus the absence of the normal Absaroka County characters, made Depth of Winter feel like it was the second half of a long book which a publisher decided to split into two volumes.

The characters in Mexico were caricatures (the blind, legless hunchback seemed like an allegory rather than an actual person--although his devotion to Texas college football was fun). There was no mystery--it was a thriller of sorts. The hero repeatedly fails to kill an enemy, which I guess was intended to display depth of character, but instead comes off as tactically ridiculous for a former Marine. Much of the plot is preposterous.

Not one of my favorites, I'm afraid.

I'm addicted to Sheriff Longmire, but in this book, I missed his regular backup posse: Henry and Victoria, in particular.

it sure was exciting, but a bit too much like Rambo, not the small town sheriff I got addicted to

Loved this book. Full of excitement! Love the characters in the book. Just wished Henry played more of a part in it. All and all I rate it a 10 easily. Hope there is many to come.
