Review: An Obvious Fact by Craig Johnson, read by George Guidall



An Obvious Fact is the 12th novel in the much loved and highly appreciated Walt Longmire series of mysteries by New York Times best-selling author Craig Johnson. I listened to all of them on  after I discovered the TV Series on Netflix and I can say that I love Walt, Henry Standing Bear and Vic like they were my treasured and trusted friends. In May I reviewed The Highwayman and now I will tell you my thoughts on Walt‘s latest adventure…

Craig Johnson‘s writing is nothing short of amazing! He creates memorable characters, weaves mystery with interesting facts and wraps it all up in humor to deliver a fantastic narrative experience. For me, Mr. Johnson is one of the best writers out there…


In An Obvious Fact Sheriff Walt Longmire has taken a short vacation and he ends up in Hulett, Wyoming, alongside his best friend Henry Standing Bear a.k.a The Bear. As the two of them are well known by the local law enforcement community, Walt is asked to help with an ongoing investigation of a hit and run incident. Their task is not easy since at that time, Hulett is full of bikers that take part in the largest motorcycle rally in the world… Was it an accident or a deliberate crime?

I won’t tell you anything more about the plot, you know very well that I hate spoilers as much as the next guy… All I add is that An Obvious Fact is one of the funniest books I listened to in a long while. Vic will make her appearance as well and she is as feisty as ever.

Narrator of the Year 2015George Guidall is back in Walt‘s shoes and as always, he brings all the characters to life with ease and passion, delivering a fantastic listening experience. I wasn’t able to stop listening, I kept the EarPods in for the entirety of the audiobook and when it was over I was left craving for more!

George Guidall is one of my favorites narrators and I love the way he delivers the Longmire series especially. He has a warm voice, like a good and wise grandfather, he reads, he acts and combined with Mr. Johnson‘s smart and funny writing he will make you laugh out loud.

I hope to see the main story of the Longmire series as it moves forward in the next novel, but, for now, I’m very happy with the two books released this year by Craig Jognson. If you are a fan, you’ll love An Obvious Fact and if you are not a fan yet, you will become one!

Boy Howdy!!!

Publisher’s Summary

In the 12th novel in the New York Times best-selling Longmire series, Walt, Henry, and Vic discover much more than they bargained for when they are called in to investigate a hit-and-run accident near Devils Tower involving a young motorcyclist.

In the midst of the largest motorcycle rally in the world, a young biker is run off the road and ends up in critical condition. When Sheriff Walt Longmire and his good friend, Henry Standing Bear, are called to Hulett, Wyoming – the nearest town to America’s first national monument, Devils Tower – to investigate, things start getting complicated. As competing biker gangs; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; a military-grade vehicle donated to the tiny local police force by a wealthy entrepreneur; and Lola, the real-life femme fatale and namesake for Henry’s ’59 Thunderbird (and, by extension, Walt’s granddaughter) come into play, it rapidly becomes clear that there is more to get to the bottom of at this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally than a bike accident. After all, in the words of Arthur Conan Doyle, whose Adventures of Sherlock Holmes the Bear won’t stop quoting, “There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact”.
