Staff Reviews


This game changing book in the Walt Longmire series has the Wyoming
sheriff dealing with a well armed religious cult, the CIA, a unique
crime, and his most lethal nemesis. Johnson’s humor and humanity finds a
way to both highlight and offset the story’s dark undercurrent.

Description


The inspiration for A&E's Longmire finds himself in the crosshairs in the ninth book of the New York Times bestselling series

Craig Johnson's new novel, The Western Star, will be available from Viking in Fall 2017.


The success of Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire series that began with The Cold Dish continues to grow after A&E’s 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.

It’s homecoming in Absaroka County, but the football and festivities are interrupted when a homeless boy wanders into  town. A Mormon “lost boy,” Cord Lynear is searching for his missing mother but clues are scarce. Longmire and his companions, feisty deputy Victoria Moretti and longtime friend Henry Standing Bear, embark on a high plains scavenger hunt in hopes of reuniting mother and son. The trail leads them to an interstate polygamy group that’s presiding over a stockpile of weapons and harboring a vicious vendetta.
