Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire

Craig Johnson’s next Walt Longmire mystery, Land of Wolves, isn’t due out until Sept. 17. And, he won’t be at The Poisoned Pen until Sept. 19 for a special ticketed event. But, Scott Montgomery’s piece for CrimeReads is too good to ignore. It’s called “The Evolution of Walt Longmire: Somewhere Between Laughter and Death.” Montgomery summarizes every Walt Longmire novel, in order, so the article is perfect for anyone who wants to catch up with the series, or start from the beginning. You can find it here.

Craig Johnson has come to The Poisoned Pen for every book, beginning with the first Longmire book, The Cold Dish. You can order the books through the Web Store.

Here’s the summary of the forthcoming book, Land of Wolves.

The new novel in Craig Johnson’s beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series.

Attempting to recover from his harrowing experiences in Mexico, in Land of Wolves Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire is neck deep in the investigation of what could or could not be the suicidal hanging of a shepherd. With unsettling connections to a Basque family with a reputation for removing the legs of Absaroka County sheriffs, matters become even more complicated with the appearance of an oversize wolf in the Big Horn Mountains to which Walt finds himself feeling more and more empathetic.


As I said, Johnson will appear for The Poisoned Pen on Sept. 19 at a special ticketed event. But, I thought readers would appreciate Scott Montgomery’s article now.
