Longmire is a fish out of water in this installment accompanying best friend Henry Standing Bear to Philadelphia. Henry has an exhibition opening in the city and Walt takes the opportunity to visit his daughter Cady who is a lawyer in town and meet her new boyfriend. However on his first night in town Cady is attacked and is left fighting for her life in a coma. Walt launches his own investigation (of course) and soon discovers Cady has gotten herself into some very big trouble. Trouble that now threatens Walt.
My favourite part of this story was Walt’s involvement with the Moretti family. Vic, who is such a dominant part of the series, is left behind in Wyoming and Walt gets to meet her mother, father and brothers. There has always been a bit of thing between Walt and Vic but when he meets her mother, who is much closer to Walt’s age, things start hotting up. And when Vic decides to come to town, watch out!
The TV show has just been picked up for a third season so there will be more Longmire reading and watching to come!
