Publisher's Summary

When Jen, the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever found, surfaces in Sherriff Walt Longmire's jurisdiction, it appears to be a windfall for the High Plains Dinosaur Museum - until Danny Lone Elk, the Cheyenne rancher on whose property the remains were discovered, turns up dead, floating face down in a turtle pond. With millions of dollars at stake, a number of groups step forward to claim her, including Danny's family, the tribe, and the federal government.
As Wyoming's acting deputy attorney and a cadre of FBI officers descend on the town, Walt is determined to find out who would benefit from Danny's death, enlisting old friends Lucian Connolly and Omar Rhoades - along with Dog and best friend Henry Standing Bear - to trawl the vast Lone Elk ranch, looking for answers to a 65-million-year-old cold case that's heating up fast.

"George Guidall just gets better and better as the gruff, dependable Sheriff in the 11th Walt Longmire mystery.... Guidall is so genuine he's almost invisible. First-rate listening." ( AudioFile)

'Dem Bones!

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."

Have loved the Longmire series so far, but...

The book, on its own is still really good, but Craig Johnson seems to be slipping into a pattern that has caused me to abandon series in the past. This started with the last book and the disappearance of the mysterious Mexican hit man, which carries over to this book, and apparently will carry over to the next one. I hated the second Star Wars movie because it was so obviously merely a commercial set up for a third one and thats the feeling I'm starting to get with the Longmire series. One book is written only to get you to buy the next one and we end up with a never-ending soap opera instead of the great books that started the series.
