Walt Longmire has been Sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming, for almost a quarter of a century, but when he joins his good friend Henry Standing Bear on a trip to the City of Brotherly Love to see his daughter, Cady, he's in for a shock. Walt hasn't even put his boots up when Cady is viciously attacked and left near death on the steps of the Franklin Institute. He soon discovers that she has unwittingly become involved in a deadly political cover-up. Backed by Henry, Dog, Deputy Victoria Moretti, and the entire Moretti posse of Philadelphia police officers, Walt unpacks his saddlebag of tricks to mete out some Western-style justice.

"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.
