A Walt Longmire Mystery - A Walt Longmire Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 18, 2013 – Just in time for the second season of the A&E TV series Longmire comes bestseller Johnson s deeply satisfying ninth Walt Longmire novel (after 2012 s As the Crow Flies). On the personal front, the Wyoming sheriff worries about his deepening relationship with Victoria Vic Moretti, his intelligent undersheriff, because of their age difference and because he s the boss. A more serious worry for Walt is Cord Lynear, who appears to be about 15 and is looking for his mother. A delusional homeless man appoints himself Cord s bodyguard. Cord turns out to be a lost boy, kicked out of a secretive polygamous group led by his stepfather, Roy Lynear, which has been putting down roots in nearby states. Although the zealots use teenage guards so inexperienced they don t even know where the safety is on their guns, nothing is amateurish about the thugs who control the compound. Suspense propels the brisk plot, complemented by a sly sense of humor and a breathtaking look at Wyoming. 12-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

Best Yet

I marvel over how good this series is. As much as I enjoy the TV show, the books capture the wit and sarcasm of Walt and Vic.

This one cannot be missed. I won't divulge any of the plot, but I will tell you that it has the quirkiest chapters seen yet.

It was an utter joy to read.

Pretty good

It was a good book however not at the level of the last one. Still worth reading though.

The worst Longmire yet.

Johnson decided to eliminate two interesting characters and give us instead a double dose of the foul-mouthed female love interest and an unending serving of how sexy Longmire finds her four word sentences featuring the word "fu-k". This is a particularly unfortunate trade-off because it's combined with a meandering, far-fetched plot and lack-luster action and way too much dialogue like "Boy howdy!"
