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)

    The Cold Dish. Same type of characters.

    He is just a great performer no matter what he performs. He brings Walt to life.

    I liked the parts with Walt and the dogs. There were some funny times.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the series.

    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Sheriff Longmire of course. The guy is too good to be real, but I can't help myself.

    "Fun, good mystery, easy listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book because I like the author and the narrator. The story carries you along and the plot line wiggles enough to make it interesting. I like the descriptions of the Wyoming country, the small town images are real.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    I enjoy Mr. Guidall's voice, he performs the characters "in character" but not to the point of using falsetto for the women. He is good at what he does!

    "Write on, Craig Johnson!"

    This particular book had me laughing from almost the first sentence. Walt interacts with the most interesting lot of characters including his junior high English teacher, her son, the junkman and his more than interesting family. Add in Henry, Vic, Santiago (who is fighting his own demons) and this was a most excellent visit with Walt and the folks of Absaroka County. Craig Johnson's descriptions can almost make you smell the "municipal solid waste facility".I can't wait for the next book.

    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.
