From the New York Times bestselling author of The Cold Dish and As the Crow Flies, a modern-day range war in the sixth novel in the Walt Longmire Mystery Series, the basis for LONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series
 
Junkyard Dogs, the sixth installment in the New York Times bestselling Walt Longmire mystery series, the basis for LONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series, takes us to Durant, Wyoming. It's a volatile new economy in Durant when the owners of a multimillion-dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent Stewart junkyard. Meeting the notorious Stewart clan is an adventure unto itself, and when conflict erupts—and someone ends up dead—Sheriff Walt Longmire, his lifelong friend Henry Standing Bear, and deputies Santiago Saizarbitoria and Victoria Moretti find themselves in a small town that feels more and more like a high-plains pressure cooker.

The hilarious and suspenseful sixth book in the Longmire series from The New York Times bestselling author of Hell Is Empty and As the Crow Flies finds our sheriff up to his badge in the darker aspects of human nature, making his way through the case with a combination of love, laughs, and derelict automobiles.

Review:

"Johnson's sixth mystery featuring Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire (after 2009's Dark Horse) will remind readers that a big city isn't necessary for a compelling crime story and enduring hero. One blizzardy February day, Walt and his deputies — Victoria Moretti and Santiago Saizarbitoria — visit the Durant, Wyo., dump, owned by the Stewart family, to investigate a severed thumb found in a discarded cooler. There they discover that the Stewart family patriarch, George, was almost killed after someone dragged him behind a '68 Toronado. Walt winds up playing peacemaker between the cantankerous Stewarts, longtime Durant residents, and the owner of a new housing development bordering the junkyard. When a search of the dump unearths a surprising side business and two deaths follow, Walt realizes he has bigger problems on his hands. Series fans as well as newcomers will cheer the laconic Walt every step of the way. 8-city author tour. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

A missing thumb and dead developers are only the beginning for Sheriff Walt Longmire

It's a volatile new economy in Durant, Wyoming, where the owners of a multi-million dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent junk-yard. When a severed thumb is discovered in the yard, conflicts erupt, and Walt Longmire, his trusty companion Dog, life-long friend Henry Standing Bear, and deputies Santiago Saizarbitoria and Victoria Moretti find themselves in a small town that feels more and more like a high plains pressure cooker.

Craig Johnson's award-winning Walt Longmire mysteries continue to find new fans, and Junkyard Dogs is sure to create many more devotees. The sixth book in the series is filled with Johnson's signature blend of wisecracks, Western justice, and page-turning plot twists, as the beloved sheriff finds himself star-deep in the darker aspects of human nature, in a story of love, laughs, death, and derelict automobiles.

This is the sixth book in the series of Walt Longmier mysteries set in northern Wyoming. The cast of characters includes Walt's best friend Henry Standing Bear and deputies Victoria Moretti and Santiago Saizarbitoria. The setting is the stunning Wyoming of now-a-days.

Craig Johnson is the extremely well-educated author who manages to include subtle classical references in pleasant, ordinary dialog and situations making their discovery such a pleasure. His characters are based on people he really knows and they behave sometimes in familiar ways and at other times in startling ways. The plots are complicated but easy to follow and often include incredibly funny events.

The author often appears in Portland bookstores. Don't miss him. He's amazing!

Johnson continues his craft of mystery, intrigue and deception with his faithful cast of characters. A small town is the setting and is just as good for this tale as your average metropolis. The opening junk yard and discovery are unique and what follows will keep you turning the pages till the end. A must for mystery fans.
