A Walt Longmire Mystery, Fiction, Crime & mystery

The 11th title in Craig Johnson's bestselling Longmire series - now a hit TV drama

The eleventh novel in Craig Johnson's bestselling Longmire series - now a hit TV drama.

Sheriff Walt Longmire has handled some cold cases in his time, but none as cold as the sixty-five million-year-old death of a Tyrannosaurus rex. The discovery of the most complete T rex skeleton ever found appears to be a windfall for the local High Plains Dinosaur Museum, until the body of Danny Lone Elk, the Cheyenne rancher on whose land the remains were discovered, is found floating face down in a turtle pond.

Walt is on a mission to determine who would benefit from Danny's death, but first he must disentangle the interests of numerous factions including the palaeontologists, Danny's family, Wyoming's Acting Deputy Attorney - and the FBI.

And then, in the thick of the investigation, Walt's daughter, Cady, arrives with her baby, bringing tragedy in their wake . . .

Praise for Dry Bones

  • 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 - New York Times Book Review

  • Fast-paced [and] entertaining . . . 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

  • Johnson's hero only gets better - both at solving cases and at hooking readers - with age - Publishers Weekly

  • 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

  • Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, always entertaining . . . a complete delight - ShelfAwareness
