Any Other Name: A Longmire Mystery

A Longmire Mystery

A sheriff's mysterious death spurs the tenth novel in the New York Times bestselling Longmire series, the basis for the hit drama series LONGMIRE , now on Netflix
Craig Johnson's The Highwayman is now available from Viking. An Obvious Fact will be available in September 2016.
In Any Other Name , Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life. With the clock ticking on the birth of his first grandchild, Walt learns that the by-the-book detective might have suppressed evidence concerning three missing women. Digging deeper, Walt uncovers an incriminating secret so dark that it threatens to claim other lives even before the sheriff can serve justice-Wyoming style.
Rezension
"Bracingly ruthless and unsentimental."- The Washington Post
"Top-notch....Johnson's hero only gets better-both at solving cases and at hooking readers-with age." - Publishers Weekly
"Well-crafted...filled with endearing characters and nonstop action." - Library Journal (starred review)
"Once more, you can count on Longmire...for action both physical and cerebral, a bit of humor and romance, and a mighty good mystery." - Kirkus Reviews
"Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire's eleventh case takes him out of his jurisdiction....Those who have followed the series all along will find no reason to stop now."- Booklist
"[Johnson] has hit a home run....Indeed, this may be [his] best Longmire mystery yet."- Wyoming Tribune Eagle
" Any Other Name is yet another fast-paced novel filled with Johnson's brand of Wild West humor and quick wit."- Deseret News
"Suspenseful and always entertaining....The 11th Walt Longmire mystery is one of the best yet."- The Oklahoman Review
Praise for As the Crow Flies by Craig Johnson:
"Walt continues to be excellent company because he's always keen to learn something from the strong Indian characters in this series...This time a wizened old medicine woman takes Walt in hand, guiding him through a Native American Church peyote ceremony deep in the woods...he [has] a vision that expands his mind and helps him solve the case."-Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
"A top-notch tale of complex emotions and misguided treachery... Crow is a superb novel steeped in the culture of the American West."- USA Today
"The pleasure of the series rests in Walt's narration, with its laid-back, observant, bemused recounting of events...Solid landscapes, a mélange of fully fleshed characters (familiar and new), drily laconic dialogue and assorted power struggles-including Walt's endless war with Rezdawg, Henry's recalcitrant, falling-apart truck-keep the latest in this rich and satisfying series on engaging course."- Houston Chronicle
"Walt's voice lets readers in on his gentle and wry nature, while showcasing his devotion to bringing bad guys or gals to justice...Johnson enriches his narrative by using the setting itself as another well-developed character. Johnson's Northern Cheyenne characters defy stereotype with self-depreciating humor and strength. Chief Lolo Long and Tribal Chief Lonnie Little Bird are especially well-crafted and appealing."- The Denver Post
"Johnson expertly highlights his conflicted hero's dual role as father and sheriff in this deeply satisfying installment."- Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
"All the elements his fans love are present: lively characters, easy banter, and, of course, a touch of the supernatural. In early books, Walt was less sure of himself, but, in his eighth adventure, it makes sense that he's now the one "giving sheriff lessons." This book fits the hand like a well-worn glove."- Booklist
Praise for A Serpent's Tooth :
"Suspense propels the brisk plot, complemented by a sly sense of humor and a breathtaking look at Wyoming."- Publishers Weekly (Starred)
"Authentic....The story moves at a brisk pace, with room for some good-natured humor and plenty of gorgeous Wyoming scenery."-CNN.com
"A tense, action-filled story with Johnson's usual touches of humor and romance."- Kirkus
"Maybe [Johnson's] best one yet."- Charleston Gazette
"Johnson employs his trademark humor, many literary allusions, a cast readers can't help but love and Johnson's obvious love of the land he's writing about. Readers will experience the West in all its grandeur while Walt battles the evils trying to encroach upon his beloved county."- Shelf Awareness
