Product Details

Praise

“Thrilling . . . Whether he’s squaring off against biker gangs or teasing out long-simmering feuds involving his closest friends, Walt Longmire is always the man for the job.” —Publishers Weekly

“Plenty of action, humor, and literary allusions drive the story to a bang-up conclusion. Johnson . . . never disappoints.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A Walt Longmire novel is like going on a ride-along with an old friend, watching him ferret out the bad guys with wit and humanity (and more than a few bullets), while we swap stories and catch up on old times…it’s An Obvious Fact—it’s good to have Walt back on the scene.” Mystery Scene

“The laconic modern-day cowboy Walt Longmire, is a guy you’d like to have a Rainier beer with.”—The Oklahoman

“[An Obvious Fact is] one of his best Longmire tales to date.”—Austin American-Statesman

“[Craig Johnson] weaves in plenty of humorous banter, emotional bonding and deep characterization to bring his extended cast of Walt, Undersheriff Victoria Moretti and Henry Standing Bear to life.” —BookPage

“No urban crime series is more sophisticated or more amusing than the Longmire novels when it comes to the complicated psychology of criminals and their victims.” —The Connecticut Post

Praise for
Dry Bones

“Fast-paced [and] entertaining.” —The Denver Post

“An especially good tale . . . If you are not familiar with Longmire, you might want to meet him. If you know him, don’t miss his latest case.” —Charleston Post & Courier

“Yet another classic Craig Johnson mystery.” —Deseret News

“The [Longmire] series continues to be fresh and innovative. . . . Devoted series fans won’t feel a sense of déjà vu in Dry Bones, but they will easily identify Johnson’s tendency toward innovative imagery . . . crack dialogue, humor and a strong sense of place. Absaroka’s maker brings dem bones to life, and readers are sure to rejoice.” —Shelf Awareness

“[Walt Longmire] remains tough, smart, honest, and capable of entertaining fans with another difficult, dangerous case.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[Longmire] never disappoints the reader: he’s a hero through thick and thin.” —Publishers Weekly

Praise for Craig Johnson and the Walt Longmire Mystery Series

“It’s the scenery—and the big guy standing in front of the scenery—that keeps us coming back to Craig Johnson’s lean and leathery mysteries.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Johnson’s hero only gets better—both at solving cases and at hooking readers—with age.” —Publishers Weekly

“Like the greatest crime novelists, Johnson is a student of human nature. Walt Longmire is strong but fallible, a man whose devil-may-care stoicism masks a heightened sensitivity to the horrors he’s witnessed.” —Los Angeles Times

“Johnson’s trademarks [are] great characters, witty banter, serious sleuthing, and a love of Wyoming bigger than a stack of derelict cars.” —The Boston Globe

“The characters talk straight from the hip and the Wyoming landscape is its own kind of eloquence.” —The New York Times

“[Walt Longmire] is an easy man to like. . . . Johnson evokes the rugged landscape with reverential prose, lending a heady atmosphere to his story.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Stepping into Walt’s world is like slipping on a favorite pair of slippers, and it’s where those slippers lead that provides a thrill. Johnson pens a series that should become a ‘must’ read, so curl up, get comfortable, and enjoy the ride.” —The Denver Post 

“Johnson’s pacing is tight and his dialogue snaps.” —Entertainment Weekly
