Overview
The inspiration for A&E's Longmire finds himself in the crosshairs in the ninth book of the New York Times bestselling series

Craig Johnson's new novel, The Western Star, will be available from Viking in Fall 2017.

The success of Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series that began with The Cold Dish continues to grow after A&E's hit show Longmire introduced new fans to the Wyoming sheriff. As the Crow Flies marked the series' highest debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Now, in his ninth Western mystery, Longmire stares down his most dangerous foes yet.
It's homecoming in Absaroka County, but the football and festivities are interrupted when a homeless boy wanders into town. A Mormon -lost boy, - Cord Lynear is searching for his missing mother but clues are scarce. Longmire and his companions, feisty deputy Victoria Moretti and longtime friend Henry Standing Bear, embark on a high plains scavenger hunt in hopes of reuniting mother and son. The trail leads them to an interstate polygamy group that's presiding over a stockpile of weapons and harboring a vicious vendetta.

Just in time for the second season of the A&E TV series Longmire comes bestseller Johnson’s deeply satisfying ninth Walt Longmire novel (after 2012’s As the Crow Flies). On the personal front, the Wyoming sheriff worries about his deepening relationship with Victoria “Vic” Moretti, his intelligent undersheriff, because of their age difference and because he’s the boss. A more serious worry for Walt is Cord Lynear, who appears to be about 15 and is looking for his mother. A delusional homeless man appoints himself Cord’s bodyguard. Cord turns out to be a “lost boy,” kicked out of a secretive polygamous group led by his stepfather, Roy Lynear, which has been putting down roots in nearby states. Although the zealots use teenage guards so inexperienced they don’t even know where the safety is on their guns, nothing is amateurish about the thugs who control the compound. Suspense propels the brisk plot, complemented by a sly sense of humor and a breathtaking look at Wyoming. 12-city author tour. Agent: Gail Hochman, Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents. (June)
