A missing thumb and dead developers are only the beginning for Sheriff Walt Longmire

It's a volatile new economy in Durant, Wyoming, where the owners of a multi-million dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent junk-yard. When a severed thumb is discovered in the yard, conflicts erupt, and Walt Longmire, his trusty companion Dog, life-long friend Henry Standing Bear, and deputies Santiago Saizarbitoria and Victoria Moretti find themselves in a small town that feels more and more like a high plains pressure cooker.

Craig Johnson's award-winning Walt Longmire mysteries continue to find new fans, and Junkyard Dogs is sure to create many more devotees. The sixth book in the series is filled with Johnson's signature blend of wisecracks, Western justice, and page-turning plot twists, as the beloved sheriff finds himself star-deep in the darker aspects of human nature, in a story of love, laughs, death, and derelict automobiles.

5 of 5 Great Writing by Craig Johnson November 2, 2010
Reviewer: John from Tualatin, OR  
Craig has signed books for us for years, but this is the first time we've had the opportunity to actually spend some time with him.  As you may know he lives in a small town of 25 people about a half an hour from Sheridan, WY.  He is currently on his first tour for Junkyard Dogs.

Yes, the first tour.  Craig is a strong supporter of the independent bookstore, and as such started his own west coast "motorcycle tour," visiting little out of the way towns such as Red Lodge (MT), Winnemucca (NV), Sisters (OR), and the like.  So he will be climbing back on his bike to run the circuit one more time in July.

I personally love the Walt Longmire series, and have often been blown away by the strong characters and sharp dialogue.  As it turn out Craig has had some serious training in writing dialogue . . . he holds a Ph.D in playwriting.  Perhaps that explains it.
