Overview
Sheriff Walt Longmire is sinking into a high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Connally, asks him to take on a mercy case outside his jurisdiction. Detective Gerald Holman of neighboring Campbell County is dead, and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend, a by-the-book lawman with a wife and daughter, to take his own life. With the clock ticking on the birth of Walt's first grandchild in Philadelphia, he enlists the help of undersheriff Vic Moretti, Henry Standing Bear, and Gillette policeman Corbin Dougherty and, looking for answers, reopens Holman's last case.
Before his mysterious death, Detective Holman was elbow-deep in a cold case involving three local women who'd gone missing with nothing to connect the disappearances--or so it seemed. The detective's family and the Campbell County sheriff's office beg Walt to drop the case. An open-and-shut suicide they say. But there's a blood trail too hot to ignore, and it's leading Walt in circles: from a casino in Deadwood, to a mysterious lodge in the snowy Black Hills of South Dakota, to a band of international hit men, to a shady strip club, and back again to the Campbell County sheriff's office. Digging deeper, Walt will uncover a secret so dark it threatens to claim other lives before the sheriff can serve justice--Wyoming style.
A thrilling story of deception and betrayal, packed with twists and turns and featuring the unforgettable characters of the "New York Times "bestselling Longmire series, "Any Other Name "is Craig Johnson's best yet.

A not-quite-cold case preoccupies Walt Longmire in bestseller Johnson’s top-notch 11th mystery featuring the Wyoming sheriff (after 2013’s novella Spirit of Steamboat). Walt reluctantly agrees to help his old boss and mentor, Lucian Connally, investigate the suicide of police detective Gerald Holman in neighboring Campbell County, even though Walt’s official powers stop at the Absaroka County line. Holman apparently shot himself because he had seen too much darkness in his job, but the last cases on Holman’s desk, involving three very different missing women, get Walt thinking. While it looks as if the women just up and left their lives, Walt’s suspicion that the disappearances are connected proves correct. To his peril, he discovers that some people are prepared to go to any lengths to keep the big picture hidden. Meanwhile, Walt awaits the birth of his first grandchild in Philadelphia. Johnson’s hero only gets better—both at solving cases and at hooking readers—with age. 15-city author tour. Agent: Gail Hochman, Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents. (May)
