Praise for Craig Johnson and the Walt Longmire Mystery Series
"Like the greatest crime novelists, Johnson is a student of human nature. Walt Longmire is strong but fallible, a man whose devil-may-care stoicism masks a heightened sensitivity to the horrors he's witnessed. Unlike traditional genre novelists who obsess mainly over every hairpin plot turn, Johnson's books are also preoccupied with the mystery of his characters' psyches."--"Los Angeles Times"
"Johnson knows the territory, both fictive and geographical, and tells us about it in prose that crackles."--Robert B. Parker
"The characters talk straight from the hip and the Wyoming landscape is its own kind of eloquence."--"The New York Times "
"[Walt Longmire] is an easy man to like. . . . Johnson evokes the rugged landscape with reverential prose, lending a heady atmosphere to his story."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
"Stepping into Walt's world is like slipping on a favorite pair of slippers, and it's where those slippers lead that provides a thrill. Johnson pens a series that should become a 'must' read, so curl up, get comfortable, and enjoy the ride."--"The Denver Post "
"A winning piece of work...There's a convincing feel to the whole package: a sense that you're viewing this territory through the eyes of someone who knows it as adoring lover and skeptical onlooker at the same time."--"The Washington Post "
"Johnson's pacing is tight and his dialogue snaps."--"Entertainment Weekly"
"Truly great. Reading Craig Johnson is a treat. . . . [He] tells great stories, casts wonderful characters and writes in a style that compels the reader forward."--"Wyoming Tribune Eagle"

Praise for Craig Johnson and the Longmire Series
It s the scenery and the big guy standing in front of the scenery that keeps us coming back to Craig Johnson s lean and leathery mysteries. " " "The New York Times Book Review"
Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and always entertaining, "Wait for Signs" is a complete delight. "ShelfAwareness"

Johnson's hero only gets better both at solving cases and at hooking readers with age. "Publishers Weekly"

Johnson s trademarks [are] great characters, witty banter, serious sleuthing, and a love of Wyoming bigger than a stack of derelict cars. "The Boston Globe"

Fast-paced [and] entertaining .Johnson, as usual, offers colorful glimpses of Wyoming history and its physical features. Johnson is able to make the landscape itself at least as fascinating as the slightly off-kilter, and sometimes murderous, folks that inhabit Walt s universe.
" Denver Post"
The [Longmire] series continues to be fresh and innovative. In "Dry Bones," Johnson accomplishes this through a sixty-five-million-year-old cold case with current social and political implications, as well as via vibrantly complex characters. Devoted series fans won't feel a sense of deja vu in "Dry Bones," but they will easily identify Johnson's tendency toward innovative imagery ( my brain felt like it was bouncing around like a sneaker inside a washing machine ), crack dialogue, humor and a strong sense of place. Absaroka's maker brings dem bones to life, and readers are sure to rejoice.
" Shelf Awareness"
[Walt Longmire] remains tough, smart, honest, and capable of entertaining fans with another difficult, dangerous case.

[Longmire] never disappoints the reader: he s a hero through thick and thin.
