A Serpent's Tooth: A Longmire Mysteryby Craig Johnson
Synopses & Reviews
The ninth book of the New York Times bestselling series and inpsiration for A&E's Longmire
The success of Craig Johnsons Walt Longmire series that began with The Cold Dish continues to grow after A&Es hit show Longmire introduced new fans to the Wyoming sheriff. As the Crow Flies marked the series highest debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Now, in his ninth Western mystery, Longmire stares down his most dangerous foes yet.
Its homecoming for the Durant Dogies when Cord Lynear, a Mormon lost boy” forced off his compound for rebellious behavior, shows up in Absaroka County. Without much guidance, divine or otherwise, Sheriff Walt Longmire, Victoria Moretti, and Henry Standing Bear search for the boys mother and find themselves on a high-plains scavenger hunt that ends at the barbed-wire doorstep of an interstate polygamy group. Run by four-hundred-pound Roy Lynear, Cords father, the group is frighteningly well armed and very good at keeping secrets.
Walts got Cord locked up for his own good, but the Absaroka County jailhouse is getting crowded since the arrival of the boys self-appointed bodyguard, a dangerously spry old man who claims to be blessed by Joseph Smith himself. As Walt, Vic, and Henry butt heads with the Lynears, they hear whispers of Big Oil and the CIA and fear they might be dealing with a lot more than they bargained for.
Twelve Longmire short stories available for the first time in a single volume—featuring an introduction by Lou Diamond Phillips of A&Es Longmire
Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Awardwinning Old Indian Trick.” This was one of the earliest appearances of the sheriff who would go on to star in Johnsons bestselling, award-winning novels and the A&E hit series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Walts life that doesnt appear in the novels; over the years, many have asked why they cant buy the stories in book form.
Wait for Signs collects those beloved stories—and one entirely new story, Petunia, Bandit Queen of the Bighorns”—for the very first time in a single volume, regular trade hardcover. With glimpses of Walts past from the incident in Ministerial Aide,” when the sheriff is mistaken for a deity, to the hilarious Messenger,” where the majority
of the action takes place in a Port-A-Potty, Wait for Signs is a necessary addition to any Longmire fans shelf and a wonderful way to introduce new readers to the fictional world of Absaroka County, Wyoming.
