When the only bad thing you can say about a listen is that it's too short, you have a winner!
There have been many Longmire adventures since "Cold Dish" - and it's very rare for just about every one of them to be a home run. "Dry Bones," despite being a bit short, is another memorable addition to the series. Craig Johnson never misses a beat; his stories are long on lore, on humor, and on heart.
How does he do it? "Dry Bones" has the usual genuine flavor of the surroundings and characters of the fictional Absaroka County, Wy. There's well-placed and interesting information about dinosaurs, digging rights in the West, and (of all things) snapping turtles! The humor is wry and never forced. And, most of all, the listener is once again drawn into the lives, loves, and heartbreaks of some of the best characters in mystery fiction - excellently portrayed by the wonderful George Guidall.
If you are unacquainted with Criag Johnson's Longmire books, it's probably best to start back at the beginning. I'm pretty sure you'll find yourself getting all the way to "Dry Bones."

A solid and entertaining outing, but missing something, compared to most of the entries in this series. Some great character moments, but it felt like we were just biding our time until we can address one of the major through plots of the last few books (all the more urgent after the tragedy in this books' b-plot).
