Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1

This is the seventeenth book in the New York Times–best-selling Longmire series, which began in 2004. Walt Longmire is still sheriff of Wyoming's Absaroka County, and, although there are whispers of his retirement, it is doubtful that anyone else could fill his boots. Still recovering from his experiences in Mexico (Depth of Winter, 2018), Walt undertakes an investigation into the hanging death—suicide or murder?—of a Basque shepherd, complicated by a wolf sighting at the scene. He finds himself in an empathic relationship with the animal while contending with an overly concerned (and armed) populace and an amateur lycanthropy buff. Walt is also worried that the Mallo Cup play money coupons he keeps finding are being left by his deceased spiritual guide, Virgil White Buffalo, to warn him that there is a child in danger. Johnson serves up another helping of his signature blend of mystery, history, humor, and mysticism set in the vast emptiness of the high plains. Recommend to fans of Nevada Barr, C. J. Box, and Ace Atkins. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2019 April

In this next in Johnson's Longmire mysteries, inspiration for the popular Netflix original series, Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire tries to learn whether a shepherd's hanging is suicide even as he ducks a murderous Basque family with little love for the local authorities when a huge wolf appears in the Big Horn Mountains. And he kind of feels for the wolf.

Bestseller Johnson's solid 15th Walt Longmire novel finds the laconic sheriff back home in Absaroka County, Wyo., barely recovered from the serious injuries he received on his quixotic foray into Mexico in 2018's Depth of Winter. The discovery of a dead sheep leads Walt into the Bighorns, where he comes across a lone wolf—and potential predator—as well as the body of shepherd Miguel Hernandez, his feet "stripped of all flesh and hanging six feet above the ground." Quips a doctor during the autopsy: "I think it's safe to assume the wolf didn't hang him," though the wolf evidently was able to nibble on the corpse's feet. Hernandez might have hanged himself, but Walt soon digs up evidence suggesting otherwise. Meanwhile, Walt antagonizes those who want to solve the area's so-called wolf problem by shooting the animals, collapses after saving a man's life by carrying him up a steep hill, and endures the wrath of people close to him who worry about what they see as foolish behavior. Johnson keeps the reader guessing up to the satisfying ending. Witty dialogue, an endearing lead, and distinctive supporting characters all add up to a winner. Author tour. Agent: Gail Hochman, Brandt & Hochman Literary. (Aug.)
