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.

Pretty good

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

A Serpents Tooth

I enjoyed the book. I think a better name for the book would have been “ Sharp is the Knife “ or “ The Sharp Edge of Religion “. The “ungrateful child” has a small role in this book( never appears), and yet the title leads the reader to think otherwise.

A Serpent

I just keep on reading…Walt and I have become great friends and I don’t want these Longmire books to end!
