Any Other Name is probably my least favorite of this series so far. The fact that it still rates 3.5/5 stars tells you how much I like Johnson’s writing. He can tell a story like few others.
The issue is that while the main storylines change with each novel, too many of the details remain the same. Walt is pulled into an investigation outside his jurisdiction. He gets caught in the snow (seriously, is it ever summer in Wyoming?). Henry and Vic assist him in the investigation (when does Vic do her day job?). And, Henry’s appearance was just so out of left field that it made no sense to me. If you want him included, just have Walt call him in. Don’t make it seem like some coincidence that he shows up somewhere.
Enjoyable but becoming predictable. I’d like to see Johnson change it up.
