Craig Johnson - 'The Western Star: A Longmire Novel'

He's back, and we're delighted.  Craig Johnson returns on Friday, September 15, at 7 pm with The Western Star, his 13th Longmire novel.  It also marks the paperback release of An Obvious Fact.  Past and present converge for Walt, as a photo of a long-ago episode in the then-young deputy's career has repercussions today. 

If you've watched the show on television, Netflix renewed Longmire for a sixth and final season, to broadcast sometime this year.

From Belinda: "My weak spots are trains, westerns and mysteries, so I was compelled to pick up The Western Star, the latest title in the Walt Longmire Myster​y​ series by Craig Johnson. I flipped through the first few pages and tried to feign disinterest -- as a brooding Western lawman would do -- but I failed spectacularly and found myself riding alongside Walt Longmire, back to his early days as a deputy with the Absaroka County Sheriff's Department. Longmire is transported back to his early law enforcement days by a picture taken then of himself and two dozen sheriffs in front of a locomotive ready to embark on a train journey across Wyoming. His efforts to stay alive then as the adventure unfolded along the rails serves as the backdrop for Longmire's current challenge to confront his darkest enemy. The gun- and book-toting Longmire, and the cast of unique characters on the Western Star were entertaining and intriguing travel companions who kept me guessing as I rode the rails with them for miles through the Wyoming wilderness."
