In the 12th novel in the New York Times bestselling Longmire series, the basis for the hit Netflix original series Longmire , Walt, Henry, and Vic discover much more than they bargained for when they are called in to investigate a hit-and-run accident involving a young motorcyclist near Devils Tower

Craig Johnson's new novel , The Western Star, is now available.

In the midst of the largest motorcycle rally in the world, a young biker is run off the road and ends up in critical condition. When Sheriff Walt Longmire and his good friend Henry Standing Bear are called to Hulett, Wyoming--the nearest town to America's first national monument, Devils Tower--to investigate, things start getting complicated. As competing biker gangs; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; a military-grade vehicle donated to the tiny local police force by a
wealthy entrepreneur; and Lola, the real-life femme fatale and namesake for Henry's '59 Thunderbird (and, by extension, Walt's granddaughter) come into play, it rapidly becomes clear that there is more to get to the bottom of at this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally than a bike accident. After all, in the words of Arthur Conan Doyle, whose Adventures of Sherlock Holmes the Bear won't stop quoting, "There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact."

Fans of Longmire will be happy. A very satisfying plot, with plenty of character; the dialogue is self-consciously witty and the level of literary quotation and self-reference as well. Craig Johnson is having himself a good time...

Craig Johnson is an outstanding writer. I keep expecting the characters he develops to step out of the book into the world. His understanding of human nature always amazes me. He must be an amazing person.

Anything Craig Johnson writes I like. Interesting look at the worlds largest motorcycle gathering and a slice of the varied folk that like the wind in their face and the bugs in their beards. Lola is an interesting car and a not -so-nice person. Walt does need to do something about Deputy Vic or she is going to move on and Henry needs a lady friend as well. Winter nights in Wyoming are long and lonely!

I always enjoy a good story, and this is one of them!!! We finally know how Henry named his classic car.
