A Walt Longmire Mystery - A Longmire Mystery

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


The eighth novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire mysteries, the basis for the Netflix original series LONGMIRE 

Craig Johnson's The Highwayman and An Obvious Fact are now available from Viking.

Embarking on his eighth adventure, Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire doesn't have time for cowboys and criminals. His daughter, Cady, is getting married in two weeks, and the wedding locale arrangements have just gone up in smoke signals. Fearing Cady's wrath, Walt and his old friend Henry Standing Bear set out for the Cheyenne Reservation to find a new site for the nuptials. But their expedition ends in horror as they witness a young Crow woman plummeting from Painted Warrior's majestic cliffs. Is it a suicide, or something more sinister? It's not Walt's turf, but he's coerced into the investigation by Lolo Long, the beautiful new tribal police chief.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 12, 2012 – In bestseller Johnson s excellent eighth Walt Longmire mystery (after 2011 s Hell Is Empty), Walt agrees to help the new tribal police chief of Wyoming s Northern Cheyenne Reservation, Lolo Long, with an investigation, even though his daughter Cady s wedding is imminent. Walt saw a woman, later identified as Audrey Plain Feather, plunge from Painted Warrior cliff holding her infant son, Adrian. Miraculously, Adrian survives, but the evidence points to murder, not suicide, in Audrey s death. Suspicion immediately falls on Audrey s abusive husband, Clarence Last Bull, but Walt isn t convinced of his guilt, especially when the FBI shows up, hot on the trail of illegal drugs. Meanwhile, Lolo, an Iraqi war vet, is eager to prove she can do her job, despite her lack of police training. Johnson expertly highlights his conflicted hero s dual role as father and sheriff in this deeply satisfying installment. The TV series Longmire, starring Australian actor Robert Taylor as the Wyoming sheriff, premiers on A&E in June. 10-city author tour.

As the Crow Flies

Mr. Johnson, please keep at it. Walt is a classic and absorbing character as are Henry, Vic, Cady, Dog, Rezdog. Your stories are fresh, compelling, steeped in the lessons of the real West and always welcome in my library.

Having finished the series, each with its humor, cultural and historical integrity, I truly await with genuine hope the next episode in the life of Sheriff Longmire!

As the Crow Flies

As usual Craig does a great job. Introduced a lot of new characters, spent a lot of time on the Res, and I had no clue who done it until the very end. Glad the tv show is on, it will tide me over until the next novel. Read them all many times, liked them all. Craig thanks for your attention to detail, multi sub plots, your description of the wedding, well done.
