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

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.

I"m a huge Craig Johnson fan, especially of the books. This is NOT my favorite in the series. It isn't as funny as most of them. Johnson insists (and so does the editor and most reviewers) in calling this weirdo sect "Mormon." Only one who gets it right--that it is a cult unrelated to the LDS--is Vic, who delights is messing up the name of the cult. I'm not a Mormon myself, but the 50-year-old Mormon men I know are not raping 12 year old girls or killing people for fun and profit; they also put high value on education, so dozens of teen boys who can't read are clearly in a cult not the LDS church. In a decade filled with hate, Johnson should have made some better choices. I wish someone had told me to skip this book and just move on to the next. That is my recommendation to you.
