A female Native American high school basketball star is receiving death threats. Her sister mysteriously disappeared a year ago after receiving similar threats. Walt Longmire and Henry Standing Bear are on the case… I’ve followed this series (and also watched the Netflix adaptation) from the beginning, and I’ve usually enjoyed the back-and-forth between Walt and Henry as they follow leads, and have adventures. This book, however, took far too much effort to finish. With George Guidall (whose work I love on Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series) narrating the audio book, it felt like I was sitting on a park bench, listening to three old men tell boring stories. The plot dragged on. The main players came across as hollow caricatures of themselves. Avid followers of the series may find parts of this book entertaining, but as a stand-alone book, Daughter of the Morning Star was not up to par with the rest of the series.
