Publisher's Summary

Craig Johnson’s rough-and-tumble hero Walt Longmire is quickly becoming a fan-favorite and a critical success.
Here Walt has his hands full as greedy land developers employ shady, violent methods to reverse their fortunes in recession-racked Wyoming, where the owners of a multi-million dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent junk-yard. When a severed thumb is discovered in the yard, conflicts erupt, and Walt Longmire, his trusty companion Dog, life-long friend Henry Standing Bear, and deputies Santiago Saizarbitoria and Victoria Moretti find themselves in a small town that feels more and more like a high plains pressure cooker.

At Last! What took so long to get this book??

I'm not a technical expert but it's true that Craig Johnson's books are closer to Tony Hillerman's stories than they are a procedural manual. His characters are rich and colorful. They get into situations that are laugh-out-loud funny and others that are touching. The story takes a lot of twists and turns that kept me wondering "now what?"
Johnson's books are character driven and I can't wait to hear what happens in the next book.
Of course, George Guidall gives another perfect performance as narrator. It's a great listen

Couldnt stop laughing

I loved this book!Always looking forward to the new Craig Johnson sense of humor, and this was as enjoyable
as the rest in the series. Sorta like "small town sheriff meets the Beverly HillBillys". Loved the characters. The only small disappointment was Henry, Walt's friend didnt have a large part in this book. but the other characters made up for the lost. Looking forward to the next adventure.
