    I didn’t read this author for a really long time because I thought it would
    be too western. Happy to say, it is more about personal relationships and mystery.

    Craig was 3/4 of the way through his newest Longmire novel back in May. Can’t wait for what comes after DRY BONES. Also can’t wait to see if Walt will ever “grow a pair” and get serious about Vic Moretti.
