Fast-paced [and] entertaining .Johnson, as usual, offers colorful glimpses of Wyoming history and its physical features. Johnson is able to make the landscape itself at least as fascinating as the slightly off-kilter, and sometimes murderous, folks that inhabit Walt s universe.
" Denver Post"
The [Longmire] series continues to be fresh and innovative. In "Dry Bones," Johnson accomplishes this through a sixty-five-million-year-old cold case with current social and political implications, as well as via vibrantly complex characters. Devoted series fans won't feel a sense of deja vu in "Dry Bones," but they will easily identify Johnson's tendency toward innovative imagery ( my brain felt like it was bouncing around like a sneaker inside a washing machine ), crack dialogue, humor and a strong sense of place. Absaroka's maker brings dem bones to life, and readers are sure to rejoice.
" Shelf Awareness"
[Walt Longmire] remains tough, smart, honest, and capable of entertaining fans with another difficult, dangerous case.
" Kirkus Reviews"
[Longmire] never disappoints the reader: he s a hero through thick and thin.
" Publishers Weekly"
Praise for Craig Johnson and the Longmire Series
It s the scenery and the big guy standing in front of the scenery that keeps us coming back to Craig Johnson s lean and leathery mysteries. "
" "The New York Times Book Review"
Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and always entertaining, "Wait for Signs"is a complete delight.
Like the greatest crime novelists, Johnson is a student of human nature. Walt Longmire is strong but fallible, a man whose devil-may-care stoicism masks a heightened sensitivity to the horrors he s witnessed.
"Los Angeles Times"
Johnson's hero only gets better both at solving cases and at hooking readers with age.
Johnson s trademarks [are] great characters, witty banter, serious sleuthing, and a love of Wyoming bigger than a stack of derelict cars.
"The Boston Globe"
Johnson s pacing is tight and his dialogue snaps.
Stepping into Walt s world is like slipping on a favorite pair of slippers, and it s where those slippers lead that provides a thrill. Johnson pens a series that should become a must read, so curl up, get comfortable, and enjoy the ride.
