Advance Praise for ANY OTHER NAME

“Once more, you can count on Longmire…for action both physical and cerebral, a bit of humor and romance, and a mighty good mystery.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[A] top-notch mystery…Johnson’s hero only gets better—both at solving cases and at hooking readers—with age.”—Publishers Weekly

 “Another well-crafted story from Johnson, filled with endearing characters and nonstop action that will appeal to series fans and readers of other Western mystery authors such as C. J. Box.”

—Library Journal, starred review

“Those who have followed the series all along will find no reason to stop now.”—Booklist

“The Walt Longmire books were already wonderful before the A&E network hit a homerun with the Longmire television series—which seems to have only inspired the author to get better each time out.”—New London Day

About the Book

Riding the critical and ratings success wave of season two of A&E-TV’s highest-rated scripted drama Longmire, Craig Johnson saddles up for the summer 2014 publication of his eleventh Sheriff Walt Longmire mystery, ANY OTHER NAME (Viking; $26.95; ISBN: 978-0-670-02646-3; Strict on sale: May 13, 2014). This time Walt strays from his own terrain to unearth threatening secrets buried in a neighboring county.

In the depths of a high-plains winter discontent, Sheriff Walt Longmire takes on a mercy case in an adjacent county as a favor to his old boss Lucian Connally and agrees to investigate the suicide of one of Lucian's old friends. With the clock ticking on the birth of Lola, his first grandchild, and a red-eye flight to Philadelphia, Walt must find out why the victim and by-the-book detective may have suppressed evidence concerning three missing women. It’s a secret so dark that it took the detective's life and will take others by the time justice, in the form of Sheriff Walt Longmire, is served.
