“The bodies pile up almost as fast as the Valentine's Day snow in the award-winning author's sixth mystery featuring Sheriff Walt Longmire. When a severed thumb is found in the local junkyard, a collision course is set between the locals and multimillion-dollar developers eyeballing the adjacent property. All of Johnson's trademarks are here - great characters, witty banter, serious sleuthing, and a love of Wyoming bigger than a stack of derelict cars.”

A missing thumb and dead developers are only the beginning for Sheriff Walt Longmire
It's a volatile new economy in Durant, Wyoming, where the owners of a multi-million dollar development of ranchettes want to get rid of the adjacent junk-yard. When a severed thumb is discovered in the yard, conflicts erupt, and Walt Longmire, his trusty companion Dog, life-long friend Henry Standing Bear, and deputies Santiago Saizarbitoria and Victoria Moretti find themselves in a small town that feels more and more like a high plains pressure cooker.
Craig Johnson's award-winning Walt Longmire mysteries continue to find new fans, and "Junkyard Dogs" is sure to create many more devotees. The sixth book in the series is filled with Johnson's signature blend of wisecracks, Western justice, and page-turning plot twists, as the beloved sheriff finds himself star-deep in the darker aspects of human nature, in a story of love, laughs, death, and derelict automobiles.
