Book Description

'The characters talk straight from the hip and the Wyoming landscape is its own kind of eloquence' New York Times

Product Description

It's a volatile new economy in Durant when the owners of a multimillion-dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent Stewart junkyard. The notorious Stewart clan is an adventure unto itself and, when conflicts erupt, Sheriff Walt Longmire, his 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.

'The finest novel in [Johnson's] series. Steeped in Western lore with a contemporary spin' Sun Sentinel

By L. J. Roberts TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
First Sentence: I tried to get a straight answer from his grandson and granddaughter-in-law as to why their grandfather had been tied with a hundred feet of nylon rope to the rear bumper of the 1968 Oldsmobile Tornado.

It begins with a severed thumb found within a Styrofoam cooler at the junkyard. Sheriff Walt Longmire decides this might be a way to re-spark the drive in his bullet-shy deputy, Santiago Saizarbitoria. Little did Walt know that thumb would lead to murders, drugs, kidnapping and family secrets.

Craig Johnson is a story teller in the classic and best sense of the word. You are captivated with the first sentence and taken along with Walt through the story to the end.

The characters are alive, real and balance each other beautifully. Walt is the personification of the good man who is intelligent, believes in his job, compassionate in his handling of people and dedicated to justice even when it takes a little bending of the law. Deputy Victoria Moretti is the street-wise, profane, East Coast transplant who provides edge to Walt's calm. Of greater significance is that all the characters, whether recurring or episodic, are fully realized.

Johnson's voice is one to which you cannot help but listen. His dialogue, whether it be Walt's internal dialogue or that between characters, is audible. His humor often causes me to laugh aloud..."It was a two-gallon Styrofoam cooler--one of the cheap ones that you can pick up at any service station in the summer season and then listen to it squeak to the point of homicidal dementia."

Sense of place and description can add so much to a story. Here were are in the middle of an exceptionally cold winter in Wyoming and no matter when and where you may be reading the book, you feel that cold.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 29 May 2014
By Neil M

The first chapter is a real surprise.
I obviously share the same wicked sense of humour as the author. Not what one expects from a police novel but this us what makes Craig so readable.
I really recommend this book as I do his previous novels, I am working my way chronologically through the Longmire series and eagerly look forward to the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cold Murder 20 May 2014
By Michael Finn TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
The last two Walt Longmire books were both really disappointing. The series featuring the aging Sheriff seemed to be stalling with two books pretty much self sabotaged by Craig Johnson. At least I assume it was him and not the result of some very poor editorial advice probably connected to pacing. Both books were completely ruined by being told in flashback and featured only minimal appearances of the regular cast of characters. But Junkyard Dogs sees a welcome return of the old, slow burn style that hooked me in the first place. The humour is turned up a notch with Walt's tendency to get injured getting a bit of a sending up. All the cast are here, with only some of the minor characters left out. It all kicks off with an old guy getting dragged along on a tow rope for several miles by his nearest and dearest, waving at bystanders as he clatters by. Following on from a sub plot line begun several books ago, Walt's newest deputy is having psychological issues after getting severely injured in the line of duty and plans to quit. Walt has other ideas. Dog gets to do his heroic hound thing again. Walt's on/off romance with feisty deputy Vic is mostly off. Henry does his tracking thing. And it's cold and the snow is coming in again. And it's all so very cosy and as far as I'm concerned.... just what the doctor ordered.

Junkyard Dogs sees Craig Johnson return to the linear storytelling style of the earlier entries in the series. It is wonderful to revisit his characters and Johnson has a winning knack of drawing you into their world and the environment they inhabit. The mystery itself is fairly basic and the pacing is deliberate before building to a satisfying climax. But it is the interaction between the characters and Johnson's masterful way of bringing them alive through their witty dialogue that impresses. His writing seems effortless in this respect and he has established a winning formula that keeps the reader coming back for more

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL GEM 25 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Walt gets called out to the local junkyard, Geo Stewart the owner of the junkyard is threatening to shoot his neighbour, he is a property developer and objects to having a junkyard next door to his multi million dollar development, not the first call Walt has had like this and it will not be the last, but this fight sets off a chain of events which lead to a convoluted tale involving drugs, body parts and that's the first fifty pages, this is also the funniest of the books so far, I laughed so much at some points I had tears in my eyes. Craig Johnson weaves a really complex tale with ease and you, the reader, are just along for the ride, I was totally transfixed till the last page, the best thing I NEVER get to work out whodunit with these books and I love the surprise.
