Summary
The new novel in Craig Johnson's beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series. Attempting to recover from his harrowing experiences in Mexico, in Land of Wolves Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire is neck deep in the investigation of what could or could not be the suicidal hanging of a shepherd. With unsettling connections to a Basque family with a reputation for removing the legs of Absaroka County sheriffs, matters become even more complicated with the appearance of an oversize wolf in the Big Horn Mountains to which Walt finds himself feeling more and more empathetic.

Booklist Review: "This is the seventeenth book in the New York Times-best-selling Longmire series, which began in 2004. Walt Longmire is still sheriff of Wyoming's Absaroka County, and, although there are whispers of his retirement, it is doubtful that anyone else could fill his boots. Still recovering from his experiences in Mexico (Depth of Winter, 2018), Walt undertakes an investigation into the hanging death suicide or murder? of a Basque shepherd, complicated by a wolf sighting at the scene. He finds himself in an empathic relationship with the animal while contending with an overly concerned (and armed) populace and an amateur lycanthropy buff. Walt is also worried that the Mallo Cup play money coupons he keeps finding are being left by his deceased spiritual guide, Virgil White Buffalo, to warn him that there is a child in danger. Johnson serves up another helping of his signature blend of mystery, history, humor, and mysticism set in the vast emptiness of the high plains. Recommend to fans of Nevada Barr, C. J. Box, and Ace Atkins.--Jane Murphy Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Johnson's solid 15th Walt Longmire novel finds the laconic sheriff back home in Absaroka County, Wyo., barely recovered from the serious injuries he received on his quixotic foray into Mexico in 2018's Depth of Winter. The discovery of a dead sheep leads Walt into the Bighorns, where he comes across a lone wolf-and potential predator-as well as the body of shepherd Miguel Hernandez, his feet "stripped of all flesh and hanging six feet above the ground." Quips a doctor during the autopsy: "I think it's safe to assume the wolf didn't hang him," though the wolf evidently was able to nibble on the corpse's feet. Hernandez might have hanged himself, but Walt soon digs up evidence suggesting otherwise. Meanwhile, Walt antagonizes those who want to solve the area's so-called wolf problem by shooting the animals, collapses after saving a man's life by carrying him up a steep hill, and endures the wrath of people close to him who worry about what they see as foolish behavior. Johnson keeps the reader guessing up to the satisfying ending. Witty dialogue, an endearing lead, and distinctive supporting characters all add up to a winner. Author tour.
