A few outrageous elements don't detract from the visit to Walt's town and environs. I even enjoyed the deus ex machina at the end which I saw coming down Main Street. ( )

Dry Bones (2015) is the eleventh novel in Craig Johnson’s soon-to-be-seventeen-book Sheriff Walt Longmire series. According to Johnson, Daughter of the Morning Star, that seventeenth Longmire novel is scheduled to be published on September 21, 2021, something I’m particularly happy about because as of right now I’m down to only one unread Longmire book, 2016’s An Obvious Fact.

Dry Bones is one of the funniest — and one of the most tragic — books in the series. The humor largely comes via the comments springing from Deputy Victoria Moretti’s observations about the differences between life and policing in Absaroka County, Wyoming, and her native Philadelphia. The woman, who is also Sheriff Longmire’s love interest, calls them like she sees them no matter the audience or circumstances, and half the fun in Longmire novels comes from watching the other characters react to what she blurts out. It is no accident that most of my favorite Longmire novels are the ones in which she is given her larger roles. Unfortunately for Walt, the tragedy that plays a major role in Dry Bones strikes directly at him and his family, and its impact will be strongly felt even in subsequent books.

“Jen,” the eight-million-dollar Tyrannosaurus rex, has put Absaroka County on the map to a degree that no one could have expected — or have been prepared for. Now, potential buyers from all over the world, including every major museum in the US, want to get their hands on what is likely to be the largest and most complete T-Rex skeleton ever seen. Jen’s potential eight-million-dollar price tag does not much worry any of them except for the local High Plains Dinosaur Museum whose director wants so badly to keep Jen at home. Soon enough, “Save Jen” becomes the local rallying cry.

But after Danny Lone Elk, the man on whose property the fossil was discovered, turns up dead before his agreement with the High Plains Dinosaur Museum has been formalized, multiple parties come forward to claim Jen as their own: Danny’s family, the tribe, and even the federal government. And it doesn’t help that the comically pompous acting deputy attorney shows up in town along with the FBI to oversee the whole process. Someone wanted Danny Lone Elk dead, and now it’s up to Walt Longmire, his deputies, and his best friend Henry Standing Bear to figure out who that is.

Bottom Line: Dry Bones is a pivotal novel in the Walt Longmire series. What happens in this one will lead directly to the plots and themes of some of the books that follow after a villain from Walt’s past comes back to haunt him and his family in an unimaginable way. Even though I didn’t do it that way myself, because the Longmire series is one of those whose greatest impact comes from a chronological reading, I suggest that the books be read in order of publication as much as possible.

Really love the feel to this one. ( )

A complicated story with a lot of twists and turns. The personalities of the characters continued to be revealed. Longmire continues to demonstrate dogged determination pursuit of his goals: the apprehension of malefactors and aiding those in his county. Rain replaces the snow that fills so many of the earlier Longmire stories. Having a tyrannosaurus Rex was a central character is an interesting twist. ( )

Lots of fun dialogue between Walt and former sheriff Lucian. Major incident impacts all favorite characters in this one that opens door for future books in series. (The incident sends Vic out of this book plot.) Continues to be good read. As usual it's the characters I am invested. The plot revolves around dinosaur bones (think Sue) and the greed they can fuel.

Many other authors with eleven books into a series would be hitting a slump...Not so with Johnson and the richly textured landscape - and crime-scape - of Absaroka County...Johnson always tells a compelling story, and Dry Bones is no different...
