Craig Johnson will introduce his newest novel, Dry Bones, on Friday, May 29 at 7 pm at Books & Co. at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek. It is the latest book in his Sheriff Walt Longmire mystery series.
In Dry Bones, Sheriff Longmire and Undersheriff Victoria Morretti get caught up in a 66 million-year-old cold case when they discover that the skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex has been found on land belonging to Danny Lone Elk, a Cheyenne rancher, and Danny has just been found dead on his property. Besides trying to solve the murder, the two find themselves in the middle of an ownership dispute. Who owns the skeleton…the deceased man’s family, a natural history museum, the Cheyenne tribe, or the federal government? While he’s dealing with all that, Walt is blindsided by a shocking tragedy that leaves his daughter heartbroken.
Craig Johnson is the recipient of the Wyoming Historical Award for fiction, the Western Writers of America Spur Award for fiction, the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Award for fiction, and the Rocky Award from Left Coast Crime. His Walt Longmire mystery series is the basis for Longmire, the hit TV original drama that has been picked up by Netflix for its fourth season.
