Publisher Description

“It’s the scenery—and the big guy standing in front of the scenery—that keeps us coming back to Craig Johnson’s lean and leathery mysteries.”
 —The New York Times Book Review


The ninth Longmire book from the New York Times bestselling author of Land of Wolves


It’s homecoming for the Durant Dogies when Cord Lynear, a Mormon “lost boy” forced off his compound for rebellious behavior, shows up in Absaroka County. Without much guidance, divine or otherwise, Sheriff Walt Longmire, Victoria Moretti, and Henry Standing Bear search for the boy’s mother and find themselves on a high-plains scavenger hunt that ends at the barbed-wire doorstep of an interstate polygamy group. Run by four-hundred-pound Roy Lynear, Cord’s father, the group is frighteningly well armed and very good at keeping secrets.

Walt’s got Cord locked up for his own good, but the Absaroka County jailhouse is getting crowded since the arrival of the boy’s self-appointed bodyguard, a dangerously spry old man who claims to be blessed by Joseph Smith himself. As Walt, Vic, and Henry butt heads with the Lynears, they hear whispers of Big Oil and the CIA and fear they might be dealing with a lot more than they bargained for.

Love The Longmire Series

Always exciting right to the end. Always engaging. Can't wait to start a new adventure with Walt. Keep 'em coming, Mr. Johnson!

Royalcee ,

Pretty good

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

Floydmann ,

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!"
