Reviews

"Fast-paced [and] entertaining . . . Johnson, as usual, offers colorful glimpses of Wyoming history and its physical features. Johnson is able to make the landscape itself at least as fascinating as the slightly off-kilter, and sometimes murderous, folks that inhabit Walt's universe." --Denver Post "An especially good tale . . . If you are not familiar with Longmire, you might want to meet him. If you know him, don't miss his latest case." --Charleston Post & Courier "Yet another classic Craig Johnson mystery." --Deseret News "The [Longmire] series continues to be fresh and innovative. In Dry Bones, Johnson accomplishes this through a 'sixty-five-million-year-old cold case' with current social and political implications, as well as via vibrantly complex characters. Devoted series fans won't feel a sense of d j vu in Dry Bones, but they will easily identify Johnson's tendency toward innovative imagery ('my brain felt like it was bouncing around like a sneaker inside a washing machine'), crack dialogue, humor and a strong sense of place. Absaroka's maker brings dem bones to life, and readers are sure to rejoice." --Shelf Awareness "[Walt Longmire] remains tough, smart, honest, and capable of entertaining fans with another difficult, dangerous case." --Kirkus Reviews "[Longmire] never disappoints the reader: he's a hero through thick and thin." --Publishers Weekly Praise for Craig Johnson and the Longmire Series "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 "Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and always entertaining, Wait for Signs is a complete delight." --ShelfAwareness "Like the greatest crime novelists, Johnson is a student of human nature. Walt Longmire is strong but fallible, a man whose devil-may-care stoicism masks a heightened sensitivity to the horrors he's witnessed." --Los Angeles Times "Johnson's hero only gets better--both at solving cases and at hooking readers--with age." --Publishers Weekly "Johnson's trademarks [are] great characters, witty banter, serious sleuthing, and a love of Wyoming bigger than a stack of derelict cars." --The Boston Globe "Johnson's pacing is tight and his dialogue snaps." --Entertainment Weekly "Stepping into Walt's world is like slipping on a favorite pair of slippers, and it's where those slippers lead that provides a thrill. Johnson pens a series that should become a 'must' read, so curl up, get comfortable, and enjoy the ride." --The Denver Post From the Hardcover edition.
