Top critical review
For many reasons, this is the worst so far.

I have been binge-reading these books one after the next, so by now I'm familiar with the characters themselves and their voices. In this book instead of character-driven dialogue, everybody just says the words the author wants them to say at that moment; people do things and say things that are out-of-character, the plot is merely driven this way and then that at the author's convenience. At first I thought it would be fun to see Cork over in Wyoming, in Absaroka County, since I just finished the Longmire mysteries before I started these. But in the end, I am disappointed and over-saturated with illogic and drivel. I'll read more, just because I'm stubborn that way, but I sure hope Krueger manages to get back in stride.
