A Longmire novella to hold us over until the next full length book? Yes, please.
The Highwayman highlights some of my favorite details of this series. The entire story is based around an off-the-books investigation Walt and his BFF, Henry Standing Bear, take on for a friend. It’s well written with a story that flows like a river through the canyon.
What’s great about Johnson’s novellas and short stories is that you can read them in or out of order. Most do not include any spoilers for the major plot lines of the series. Plus, he uses the opportunity to delve into details about tertiary characters that we barely know but that have piqued our interest in some way.
Fantastic. 4/5 stars.
