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.

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.
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!"
