Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Cold Dish and As the Crow Flies, a modern-day range war in the sixth novel in the Longmire Mystery Series, the basis for LONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series




Junkyard Dogs, the sixth installment in the New York Times bestselling Longmire Mystery Series, the basis for LONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series, takes us to Durant, Wyoming. It's a volatile new economy in Durant when the owners of a multimillion-dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent Stewart junkyard. Meeting the notorious Stewart clan is an adventure unto itself, and when conflict erupts—and someone ends up dead—Sheriff Walt Longmire, his lifelong 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.



The hilarious and suspenseful sixth book in the Longmire series from The New York Times bestselling author of Hell Is Empty and As the Crow Flies finds our sheriff up to his badge in the darker aspects of human nature, making his way through the case with a combination of love, laughs, and derelict automobiles.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Johnson's sixth mystery featuring Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire (after 2009's Dark Horse) will remind readers that a big city isn't necessary for a compelling crime story and enduring hero. One blizzardy February day, Walt and his deputies—Victoria Moretti and Santiago Saizarbitoria—visit the Durant, Wyo., dump, owned by the Stewart family, to investigate a severed thumb found in a discarded cooler. There they discover that the Stewart family patriarch, George, was almost killed after someone dragged him behind a '68 Toronado. Walt winds up playing peacemaker between the cantankerous Stewarts, longtime Durant residents, and the owner of a new housing development bordering the junkyard. When a search of the dump unearths a surprising side business and two deaths follow, Walt realizes he has bigger problems on his hands. Series fans as well as newcomers will cheer the laconic Walt every step of the way. 8-city author tour. (June)
Kirkus Reviews
In rural Absaroka County, Wyo., where Sheriff Walt Longmire keeps an uneasy peace, junk isn't always junk. It's often worse. Geo Stewart, 72, is the kind of man broken bones happen to. That's old news to the docs at Durant Memorial Hospital. This time, however, along with a fractured clavicle-the result of being drawn some distance roped to the rear of an ancient Oldsmobile-Geo has a bit of unsettling news for the docs, who will pass it on to Sheriff Longmire, whose life it will immeasurably complicate. When he's not in the hospital, Geo is steward of the Durant dump, which he prefers to call the "Municipal Solid Waste Facility." In this capacity, he's found a severed thumb. Since no one has reported it missing, Sheriff Walt has a mystery on his hands. And since nothing is ever as easy in Absaroka County as counting noses, or digits, the mystery will only deepen and develop links to other local mysteries, such as exactly what kind of crop is being harvested in a certain Durant basement, or who's responsible for the sudden surge in the county homicide rate. Or, knottiest of all, what to do about the unseemly, ongoing romantic comedy starring grizzled, wintry Walt and Deputy Victoria Moretti, his feisty, foul-mouthed, adorable girl of summer. It's hard to imagine a more likable lawman than Sheriff Walt (The Dark Horse, 2009, etc.). Thumbs up.

    Great Read!!!

    I highly recommend all of the books I have read in this series so far. Well written, great characters, good mysteries with a dose of humor thrown in. Plus, Craig Johnson knows Wyoming. I have been passing these books along to my friends and they are all hooked on them.

    Another Winner!

    Like all the previous books in this series by Craig Johnson, it is excellent. Before I knew it I'd finished the book. I also enjoy reading the Penguin readers guide at the back of the book. It's always very informative.

    I absolutely loved this book. Our library only has 2 Longmire


    I absolutely loved this book. Our library only has 2 Longmire books and I just could not put this one down. The first 4 pages made me laugh out loud. Johnson has a gift for humor mixed with the serious. Since getting hooked on the new Longmire TV series I just had to read Junkyard Dog and loved it. I lived in Wyoming for a couple of years, Laramie to be exact and his description of the snow, cold, and wind though haunting, beautiful and dangerous is the reason I now live in Florida. :) Still that area of the country is fascinating and rich with history. This series of books is a genuine tribute to the mysterious appeal of Wyoming.

    Must Read for both the fans of the Western and Crime Genre

    Craig Johnson has created a thrilling series set in the hard scruff plains of Wyoming. His characters quickly become living breathing people and you feel like you can feel the dirt under your boots while reading. Longmire is a real hero, a tough yet compassionate, and emotionally vulnerable man. Vic.... well let's just say that I' like to have dinner with Vic for just one evening.

    more from this reviewer

    Johnson is one of the only American series writers I read religiously

    Craig Johnson's books, read by George Guidall, have something of the wise old dad about them. No matter that Walt Longmire, sheriff of Wyoming's Absaroka County, is not so old he doesn't lust after his deputy, the apple-assed Vic Moretti. That just makes him more of a man. And man he is. Bearing all manner of physical insult, he comes out on top once again, chasing his quarry through an 18" snowstorm high in the hills surrounding Red Lodge, Montana.

    The ridiculous nature of the events that set off a chain of murders can only be based in truth because no novelist would create such stories for fear his tribe of readers would leave him for dead. In interviews Johnson tells us that he gets the basis for his outrageous stories from his friends in the police, so the one about the man cleaning the chimney in the middle of the winter with a rag soaked in kerosene, and tied with a rope to the bumper of a Durango, has got to be true. Hard as it is to believe. But it is the home-smoked flavor of these great western stories that make this series so...home grown. This is a series I allow myself to savor like a fine cigar. I pace myself, withholding the pleasure of beginning a new story until I feel I have earned a special treat. They are soothing to the soul, funny to the bone, candy for the brain, and oh-so-reassuring for those among us who fear wisdom eludes our public servants.

    Midnight

    She watched as a deer ventured out into the ege of the meadow and leaned to take some grass. She stalked forward and waited until she was only a couple yards from it. She tensed her shoulder then leaped, crashing into its side and knockin it down. She bit its throat and ripped out half killing it instantly.
