Dry Bones

Book 11, A Walt Longmire Mystery - A Walt Longmire Mystery

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


Wyoming’s beloved lawman must solve his coldest case yet when a T. rex skeleton surfaces—along with a dead rancher—in Absaroka County

Longmire, the TV adaptation of Craig Johnson’s New York Times bestselling Longmire Mystery series, has ratcheted up demand for the Wyoming sheriff’s written adventures. Dry Bones is certain to join Johnson’s most recent Longmire novels when it shoots onto the New York Times hardcover bestseller list.

When the largest, most complete fossil of a Tyrannosaurus rex ever found is discovered in Absaroka County, it appears to have nothing to do with Walt—that is, until the Cheyenne rancher who claims her is found face down in a turtle pond. As a number of parties dispute the ownership of the priceless remains, including the family of dead rancher Danny Lone Elk, the Cheyenne tribe, Wyoming’s Deputy Attorney General, and a cadre of FBI men, Walt must recruit undersheriff Victoria Moretti, Henry Standing Bear, and Dog to investigate a sixty-six-million year-old cold case that’s heating up fast.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 30, 2015 – At the start of bestseller Johnson's intricately plotted 11th Walt Longmire novel (after 2014's Any Other Name), the Wyoming sheriff helps pull the corpse of Danny Lone Elk, a Cheyenne rancher, from a turtle pond on his ranch. Did Danny die of natural or unnatural causes? Walt soon suspects murder, given the uproar that arises over the recent discovery by local paleontologists of a nearly complete T. rex skeleton nicknamed Jen after the scientist who unearthed her on Danny's property. A fight brews among the U.S. government, Absaroka County's own High Plains Dinosaur Museum, and the Lone Elk family, who claim that Jen belongs to the Cheyenne tribe. Meanwhile, Walt (who is white) is hit with an unexpected personal loss ("It just seems like I made this deal with the universe to serve and protect, and in return, little by little, I get everything I care about taken away from me"). This steadfast character never disappoints the reader: he's a hero through thick and thin.

Customer Reviews

Dry Bones personified!

As usual, Craig Johnson draws you in like a moth to a flame! Character-driven stories are the best kind and there are so many characters in this book that it did whet my appetite,so I read the book in less than two days! (I now know why one of the characters from a couple of former books was not featured ) OUTSTANDING BUT SAD STORY, Bill Muhr, Tucson, AZ

Great as expected

Great, now I have to wait for the next one. Really a goodread! If you have not read them all, boy howdy, you need to start.

Entertaining and engaging

I always enjoy a Longmire book and this one was just as good a read as all the others. Keep them coming........
