Synopsis

A sheriff’s mysterious death spurs the tenth novel in the New York Times bestselling Longmire series, the basis for the hit drama series LONGMIRE, now on Netflix

Craig Johnson's The Highwayman and An Obvious Fact are now available from Viking.
 
In Any Other Name, Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life. With the clock ticking on the birth of his first grandchild, Walt learns that the by-the-book detective might have suppressed evidence concerning three missing women. Digging deeper, Walt uncovers an incriminating secret so dark that it threatens to claim other lives even before the sheriff can serve justice—Wyoming style.

Once more, you can count on Longmire...for action both physical and cerebral, a bit of humor and romance, and a mighty good mystery.

ANY OTHER NAME is a contemporary western of the best kind, featuring a quietly upright and stand-up protagonist with a strong supporting cast and an interesting mystery ultimately solved by old-fashioned police work. Building on plot, character and dialogue, Johnson has given us yet another winner in a series that never disappoints.

All in all, it is a pleasure to see Johnson returning to what he does best. He doesn't need to swing for the fences to get the job done. Rather, by keeping it small, he has created a dynamic series and, in this case, a winner of a book.

Like the 10 previous books before this one, Any Other Name can easily be read and appreciated for the self-contained story that it is. And it will likely snare new readers as easily as The Cold Dish. But to grasp the complete allure of this series start at the beginning and watch the whole Absaroka Gang grow up together.

Staying inside a character’s head for an entire book can be risky if he wears out his welcome by becoming tedious or whining or depressive. But Longmire’s appealing. He is not a loner; he has friends and he works to gets along with people.
