Publisher's Summary

Craig Johnson’s rough-and-tumble hero Walt Longmire is quickly becoming a fan-favorite and a critical success.

Here Walt has his hands full as greedy land developers employ shady, violent methods to reverse their fortunes in recession-racked Wyoming, where the owners of a multi-million dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent junk-yard. When a severed thumb is discovered in the yard, conflicts erupt, and Walt Longmire, his trusty companion Dog, 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.

Listen to all of Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mysteries.

What the Critics Say

“It’s the scenery—and the big guy standing in front of the scenery—that keeps us coming back to [these] lean and leathery mysteries.” (New York Times Book Review)

    Story
    "Freeeezing..."

    The Wyoming winter is going full scale with temperatures dropping way below zero, freezing even your breath, burrrr. Walt and the gang are on the case trying to find out who is behind multiple murders that started when Walt an Vic found a huge underground crop of pot plants.

    Another great one in the series which is no surprise. Craig Johnson is the best at coming up with fascinating co-characters to support the returning cast. In every book the new characters are so classically authentic, it makes me wonder if they are based on real people he encounters in his life.

    A little heads up; the Longmire series on TV dose not follow the plots in any of the books and a few of the main characters are different. Its a good show and I'm so glad it does not ruin any of the books I have not yet read. Narrator George Guidall is Walt Longmire. It would not be the same without him.

    "A favorite Longmire story"

    This is one of those stories that is intricate and involved-a lot going on for Sheriff Longmire-both personal and work related.

    I love how Craig Johnson brings the personality of every character into these novels-from the local doctor to the Sheriff himself..we get to know each of the characters.

    I've been catching up on the TV series-I love Robert Taylors depiction of Walt but can't get used to Lou Diamond as Henry Standing Bear..in my mind, Henry is a big guy-much more gruff than Phillips.....
    But cool for Johnson for getting this series into production on TV.

    If you enjoy the series-this is a have to listen to-one can't do better than George Guidell as a narrator..In my mind he's one of the best there is-I've loved his voice since I first heard him narrate "The Stand".

    If you're new to Walt Longmire I do suggest reading or listening in order...they refer to happenings in other stories and it can get confusing.

    Enjoy-well worth the credit.

    "Tough as Nails Doesn't Begin to Explain It"

    This is the sixth Walt Longmire mystery I've read in this series. What makes it stand out to me, even as compared to the others that I have really enjoyed, is the supporting cast, especially Geo Stewart. He is beyond tough-as-nails, and some of predicaments that he and his family find themselves in are just plain entertaining. The original cast of characters that repeat from book to book don't disappoint, either -- they meld nicely with the motley crew they encounter.

    This goes beyond being just a series of mysteries. It's the ongoing story of a small town with extremely endearing residents. The narrator adds a beautiful finishing touch to create real listening pleasure!

    "Another good story"
    Where does Junkyard Dogs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Junkyard Dogs?

    When the deputy shot the man whose thumb had been cut off because he was preparing to shoot Walt.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The description of Walt trying to stop the wrecker that Gina was driving in order to get away from Walt and/or kill him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I listen to books the way my father and his family listened to the radio when he was a little boy. There is too much trash on TV these days and I can pick what I want to listen too. I do wish that Vic Maretti's mouth was not quite so foul.

    I hear voices. But maybe that's because there's always an Audible book in my ear.

    "I love these books"

    I read all kinds of things that inform and educate me. These Walt Longmire books are a whole different category ... pure enjoyment. For a first listen, or for a car trip, or walking the dog, or weeding the garden -- really, anything -- these are perfect. George Guidall is such a wonderful choice for the narration. I have but one complaint ... I wish they were longer.

    "Another dazzling Walt Longmire tale
    "

    I love these books immensely. Craig Johnson's wit and wisdom come pouring through my headphones, and George Guidall is one of those narrators I'll trust with any material. The pairing is superb. This is cowboy stuff for the passionate philosopher crowd, constantly reminding us that the heart is a damned muscle, and it's gonna take a beating, and give one right back.

    "another winner in this great series"

    This installment in the Walt Longmire series doesn't disappoint - in fact, I liked it better than the last few. It hits just the right combination of interesting characters with a great setting and a good mystery.......and then tops it all off with wonderful narration. In this novel, the winter weather and the location play a big part in the story, and that is a part of what I like about these books - the location is a character as much as Walt, Vic, or Ruby. There's less with Henry in this book and more with Sancho, which suits my taste just fine.

    "Wonderful"

    All the positive reviews tell all you need to know. I can add nothing more. Craig Johnson may not be as well known as John Grisham, but he shuld be! His books are wonderfully exciting wth real characters (that are not indiscriminantly jumping into bed all the time). And George Guidall is just the best narrator for this author. The combination is unbeatable.

    "These recordings are priceless."

    I was thrilled to see the latest installation. The combination of the writing with the narration continues to be something special. Not much more to say, really...
