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
    "Johnson delivers again"
    Would you listen to Junkyard Dogs again? Why?

    Craig Johnson is one of those authors who writes with compassion, insight, and humor. He also writes with sympathy and understanding about the west, about Wyoming, old people, women and the 'Cheyenne nation'. Throw in the fact that he is a very good writer indeed. So in Junkyard Dogs we get (at times) a knee slapping description of a bizarre family who runs the junkyard, a story of retired romance, and a continuation of the saga of the Durand sheriff department. George Guidall, for me, IS Walt Longmeyer..so much so that I find it hard to actually READ a Johnson book without hearing his voice,

    If you don't like this recording, you are probably one of those terribly politically correct snobs or someone who wants blood and guts all over the floor...(I know books like that too :>)


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

    The opening scene


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes...he is wonderful


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Johnson can make me laugh and feel sympathy (without being maudlin) in the span of a few pages.

    "Another great read from Craig Johnson"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definately recommend this and any of the Walt Longmire stories. I enjoy the wit of the author and just as much, the way they are read. The characters are believable and I enjoy the obviously well read author's observations. He is always self-effacing and wise at the same time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Longmire with Henry Standing Bear as a close second.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just the Longmire series. It took me a little while, with my first read to get used to his pace, but I am there now and I always have a hard time waiting for the next.

    "I Keep Repeating My Self"

    This is book 6. I have read them all now and I am going back and putting a word or two in here and there. What do you do when you find a thumb in a junkyard? Walt knows just what to do and does it so well. How does Guidall do it??? When I am listening to him read Johnson's tales of Walt Longmire that's who he becomes for me and tomorrow if Flynn came out with a new book read by Mr. G then presto chango he becomes Mitch Rapp. Great Book with wonderful close knit characters.

    Story
    "Narrator good. Plot interesting, but slow start."
    What did you love best about Junkyard Dogs?

    The characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The mystery itself.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Certainly made me smile, but not laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    This is actually my first in the Walt Longmire series. I found it took a long time before anything happened. The story is both well-told and well-narrated. I enjoyed the humorous dialogue among characters, but I suspect that, if it is always of this variety, it might grow tiresome. It's a little too cute, if you know what I mean.

    "Can't it to download to my iTouch!!!!!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Having to read it - won't transfer. Email response from you didn't help 1 iota!!! Get someone who knows how to trouble shoot.


    Has Junkyard Dogs turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I love this author. I had to buy the book to read it. Craig Johnson is a great writer and I can't wait to see the TV show Longmire.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall???s performances?

    YES. He was a great reader for this book - at least the other 4 that I could get to copy to my iTouch.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Junkyard Dogs?

    I'm still reading it and so far enjoying it all.


    Any additional comments?

    I need some help getting my iTouch to work on your site. Can you add it to your list of Devices please?

    "Excellent writing and outstanding narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a really, really good series. Makes you want to book your next vacation to Wyoming, find the Busy Bee Cafe and wait to see these folks wander in.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say, Dog really shines in this one. Along with Butch and Sundance.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    That cowboy drawl of Walt's, the Bear's very complete sentences, and Vic's Philly profaneness are all right there - just wouldn't be the same in printed page.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sex, drugs, and man's best friend
