Sheriff Walt Longmire had already rounded up a sizable posse of devoted readers when the A&E television series Longmire sent the Wyoming lawman's popularity skyrocketing. Now, with three consecutive New York Times bestsellers, Craig Johnson is reaching a fan base that is both fiercely loyal and ever-growing. In Any Other Name (Viking), Walt uncovers an incriminating secret so dark that it threatens to claim other lives even before the sheriff can serve justice — Wyoming style.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walt faces an icy hell in this New York Times bestseller from the author of The Cold Dish and As the Crow Flies, the seventh novel in the Walt Longmire Mystery Series, the basis for LONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series.

Fans of Ace Atkins, Nevada Barr and Robert B. Parker will love this seventh novel from Craig Johnson, the New York Times bestselling author of The Cold Dish and As the Crow Flies. Well-read and world-weary, Sheriff Walt Longmire has been maintaining order in Wyoming's Absaroka County for more than thirty years, but in this riveting seventh outing, he is pushed to his limits.

Raynaud Shade, an adopted Crow Indian rumored to be one of the country's most dangerous sociopaths, has just confessed to murdering a boy ten years ago and burying him deep within the Bighorn Mountains. Walt is asked to transport Shade through a blizzard to the site, but what begins as a typical criminal transport turns personal when the veteran lawman learns that he knows the dead boy's family. Guided only by Indian mysticism and a battered paperback of Dante's Inferno, Walt braves the icy hell of the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area, cheating death to ensure that justice — both civil and spiritual — is served.

The Walt Longmire mystery series is the basis for Longmire, the hit original drama series from A&E.

Review:

“With Hell is Empty, Craig Johnson delivers an action-packed Western thriller, rife with evocative setting and literary allusion. This seventh novel featuring wise-cracking Sheriff Walt Longmire creeps stealthily out of the corral with an increasingly tense setup.” The Boston Globe

Review:

“Series fans and readers who enjoy C.J. Box and other authors of Western mysteries will be enthralled by this electrifying and intense work; a triumph.” Library Journal (starred review)

Review:

“Stellar….When [Raynaud] Shade, who’s headed for death row in Utah, escapes and takes off into the wilderness with a blizzard threatening, Walt sets off alone on the killer’s trail…Soon Walt is past the point of no return as the snow and ice accumulate on a journey that evokes Dante’s Inferno.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Review:

“For Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire, the pursuit of a vicious murderer through a killer ice storm in the Bighorn Moutnains adds up to a cold day in hell….Deft as always.” Kirkus Reviews

Review:

“A muscular story of guns and grit, man against man and man against nature…the characters’ ascent is indeed hellish, pulling them deeper into a hypothermic fever dream where the line between the living and the dead blurs.” ShelfAwareness.com

The landscape often plays an important role in these stories, especially here. This 7th Longmire book was suspenseful and thought-provoking, but I missed the camaraderie, conflict, and humor among the supporting characters, especially Vic Moretti and Henry Standing Bear. Just my personal preference to follow along with the whole ensemble, but the entire series is excellent and I wouldn't miss a single volume. I wouldn't, however, recommend this as a starting point for anyone just sampling the series!
