Staff Pick

Gripping, gritty, and hilarious, Junkyard Dogs is the sixth in the Walt Longmire series, but you can dive in and thoroughly enjoy it without reading the previous books. Though once you've read one Craig Johnson novel, you'll feel the need to read all of them. A fellow Johnson addict pointed out that his writing is similar in flavor to Richard Russo's, another master of character. I have to agree that if Walt Longmire ever met Hank Devereaux from Russo's Straight Man, they'd probably be the best of friends.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 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 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....Series fans as well as newcomers will cheer the laconic Walt every step of the way." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"As he proved in last year's terrific Dark Horse, Johnson — a born storyteller if ever there was one — can do one hell of a set piece in a snowstorm (even with a limping, overweight sheriff). Longmire may be contemplating early retirement, but readers will demand that he serve out his full term of service — and run for reelection." Keir Graff, Booklist

My favorite in the Walt Longmire series so far - it has many laugh out loud scenes in it! Johnson's depiction of the winter setting in Wyoming throughout February is so vivid that the weather practically becomes a character in the book. Ready to move on to the next book - hope that it is as good as this one.

This is a perfect summer read. If you enjoy the Longmire television series, you'll really enjoy this book by Craig Johnson. This fine mystery in the Walt Longmire series is worth your time!

Craig Johnson uses the vernacular of the real characters in his Wyoming home. Consequently, the book almost becomes an ethnographic study. A great read.
