I am working my way through Craig Johnson's books, and really enjoy them partly because I grew up in that area. I find them to be well written and fast moving, and the humor is exceptional. "Junkyard Dogs" is my favorite of his books so far, but I have quite a few to go.

I was introduced to these books via the made-for-TV series, so I had no idea that Longmire was hilarious! It is some times groan-ers, sometimes pun-y, and sometimes laugh-out-loud, but always understated humor. This is the funniest yet (#6, I think) and with a couple of real surprises near the end--one personal and one professional for Walt, and a couple for the reader, too.

Longmire book #6

I was able to rent the e-book so no longer needed the printed version. As usual, love the characters and am looking forward to the next book in the series.

I laughed out loud at least 3 times while reading this book. Love the characters, love the author.
