Craig Johnson has won multiple awards and earned starred reviews from Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews for his New York Times bestselling Walt Longmire mysteries.

Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire has a more important matter on his mind than cowboys and criminals. His daughter, Cady, is getting married to the brother of his undersheriff, Victoria Moretti. Walt and old friend Henry Standing Bear are the de-facto wedding planners and fear Cady’s wrath when the wedding locale arrangements go up in smoke two weeks before the big event.

The pair set out to find a new site for the nuptials on the Cheyenne Reservation, but their scouting expedition ends in horror as they witness a young Crow woman plummeting from Painted Warrior’s majestic cliffs. It’s not Walt’s turf, but the newly appointed tribal police chief and Iraqi war veteran, the beautiful Lolo Long, shanghais him into helping with the investigation. Walt is stretched thin as he mentors Lolo, attempts to catch the bad guys, and performs the role of father of the bride.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Walt continues to be excellent company because he’s always keen to learn something from the strong Indian characters in this series.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “The pleasure of the series rests in Walt’s narration, with its laid-back, observant, bemused recounting of events…Solid landscapes, a mélange of fully fleshed characters (familiar and new), drily laconic dialogue, and assorted power struggles—including Walt’s endless war with Rezdawg, Henry’s recalcitrant, falling-apart truck—keep the latest in this rich and satisfying series on engaging course.” 

    Houston Chronicle

  • “A top-notch tale of complex emotions and misguided treachery…Crow is a superb novel steeped in the culture of the American West.” 

    USA Today

  • Selected for the May 2012 Indie Next List
  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

    " Sheriff Walt Longmire is scouting a wedding spot for his daughter when he and Henry Standing Bear see an Indian woman fall to her death from a cliff. Even though he is outside his jurisdiction, Longmire finds himself mentoring the new young police chief on the Cheyenne reservation, running interference between the young cop andthe Feds, and trying to stay out of the way of the wedding planning. Vic Moretti is off on a PR course, but Lolo Long (the new cop) brings a lot of the same attitude to the case and Henry Standing Bear continues to be Longmire's best friend and best investigatory asset. The details about life on the Rez seem to ring true, though i'd be the las to know. "

    " Walt Longmire, Sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming, is the main character of seven previous books and a television series on A&E. This addition to the series finds Walt attempting to find a venue for his daughter Cady's imminent wedding when a body falls, literally, at his feet. Although off his turf, he mentors the new police chief of the Cheyenne Reservation, attempts to solve the circumstances surrounding the death, while balancing his role as father of the bride. Most of the continuing characers make an appearance. Funnier than earlier titles in the series, it is wrapped up just a bit too quickly in the rather rushed ending. "

    " Ho, hum. Not much to see here, folks. Drive on by. "
