Walt gets shanghaied into a murder investigation on the Reservation in this New York Timesbestseller from the author of The Cold Dish and Hell Is Empty, the most recent novel in the Walt Longmire Mystery Series, the basis forLONGMIRE, the hit A&E original drama series

Fans of Robert B. Parker will love this eighth adventure in the New York Timesbestselling and award-winning Walt Longmire mystery series. Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire has a more important matter on his mind than cowboys and criminals. His daughter, Cady, is getting married to the brother of his undersheriff, Victoria Moretti. Walt and old friend Henry Standing Bear are the de facto wedding planners and fear Cady’s wrath when the wedding locale arrangements go up in smoke two weeks before the big event.

The pair set out to find a new site for the nuptials on the Cheyenne Reservation, but their scouting expedition ends in horror as they witness a young Crow woman plummeting from Painted Warrior’s majestic cliffs. It’s not Walt’s turf, but the newly appointed tribal police chief and Iraqi war veteran, the beautiful Lolo Long, shanghais him into helping with the investigation. Walt is stretched thin as he mentors Lolo, attempts to catch the bad guys, and performs the role of father of the bride.

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 melange 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
