Here’s the description of Daughter of the Morning Star.

A new novel in the beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series.

When Lolo Long’s niece Jaya begins receiving death threats, Tribal Police Chief Long calls on Absaroka County Sheriff Walt Longmire along with Henry Standing Bear as lethal backup. Jaya “Longshot” Long is the phenom of the Lame Deer Lady Stars High School basketball team and is following in the steps of her older sister, who disappeared a year previously, a victim of the scourge of missing Native Woman in Indian Country. Lolo hopes that having Longmire involved might draw some public attention to the girl’s plight, but with this maneuver she also inadvertently places the good sheriff in a one-on-one with the deadliest adversary he has ever faced in both this world and the next.


Craig Johnson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire mysteries, the basis for the hit Netflix original series Longmire. He is the recipient of the Western Writers of America Spur Award for fiction and the Mountain & Plains Independent Booksellers Association’s Reading the West Book Award for fiction. His novella Spirit of Steamboat was the first One Book Wyoming selection. He lives in Ucross, Wyoming, population 25.


I was waiting to watch the Facebook virtual event, and I wondered why it didn’t start on time, and those of us watching virtually came in partway through the event. Barbara Peters, owner of The Poisoned Pen, explains the technical problems at the beginning of the virtual event below. Even if the event starts partway through, Craig Johnson is always worth listening to. He’s a true storyteller. Enjoy the event!
