Walt Longmire has been sheriff of Wyoming's Absaroka County for almost a quarter of a century and has meted out justice with charm and a high-powered sense of humor. But when Walt tags along with good friend Henry Standing Bear on a trip to Philadelphia, he's in for a shock. A vicious attack on his daughter Cady leaves her near death and Walt discovers that she has unwittingly become embroiled in a deadly political cover-up. With Henry, Deputy Victoria Moretti, the entire Moretti clan of Philadelphia police officers, and Dog as backup, Sheriff Longmire intends to introduce a little western justice from his saddlebag of tricks to the City of Brotherly Love, where no act of kindness goes unpunished.

The Longmire series by Craig Johnson is by now well-established among fans of mysteries, crime drama, Western fiction, and suspense thrillers. With the series up to 15 installments and counting, and a well-reviewed six-season television series (available on Netflix, which released the 4th-6th seasons as original content) the books reward continued reader investment in the characters and events set in the fictional high-plains community of Absaroka County, Wyoming. Johnson is the recipient of the Western Writers of America Spur Award for fiction, as well as the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Award for fiction.

"Kindness Goes Unpunished" is my third venture into the world of Walt Longmire and I must say the series continues to be highly entertaining. This edition found Walt in Philadelphia--so the Wyoming setting we're used to was not prominent. But Walt, in all his (occasionally hilarious) Western Sheriff glory is, which makes for a fun,"fish out of water" tale. There were some scenes where suspension of disbelief is necessary, but if you don't mind doing that, it's a fun ride. I was a little bummed with an extremely awkward twist that came into play, but I guess it was only a matter of time. Otherwise, I really enjoyed visiting with Walt, Henry Standing Bear and the rest of the crew.

This is #3 in the Longmire series. Walt is in Philadelphia. The action scenes are a little unbelievable. Let's hope he gets back to Wyoming soon.

When Sheriff Walt Longmire visits his daughter, Cady, in Philadelphia, he is dragged into a tangled web of crime, including murder.

It all begins when Cady is pushed down a set of stairs and winds up in the hospital. Walt teams up with the Philly PD to find the culprit and soon finds himself helping them solve a bunch of crimes.

Though it doesn’t take place in Wyoming, this is still a worthwhile entry in the series.
