Content descriptions

General Note: "A Longmire mystery"--cover.
Summary, etc.: "In the midst of the largest motorcycle rally in the world, a young biker is run off the road and ends up in critical condition. When Sheriff Walt Longmire and his good friend Henry Standing Bear are called to Hulett, Wyoming -- the nearest town to America's first national monument, Devils Tower -- to investigate, things start getting complicated. As competing biker gangs, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, a military-grade vehicle donated to the tiny local police force by a wealthy entrepreneur; and Lola, the real-life femme fatale and namesake for Henry's '59 Thunderbird (and, by extension, Walt's granddaughter) come into play, it rapidly becomes clear that there is more to get to the bottom of at this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally than a bike accident"--page [4] cover.

    Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire seems to be spending less and less time in his own jurisdiction of Absaroka County: here he's been asked to consult on a hit-and-run near Devil's Tower in the northeast corner of the state. Conveniently, longtime friend Henry Standing Bear is competing just across the border in the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and, coincidentally, Henry's old flame Lola is the mother of the victim. With biker madness as the backdrop, the twelfth Longmire novel (following Dry Bones, 2015) ambles along through a convoluted case with a large cast, plenty of clues, and a heaping helping of the jocular interplay fans crave. (Naturally, undersheriff and love interest Vic Moretti flies in to assist.) It's certainly no mere hit-and-run or biker feud—otherwise, why would the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms be involved? There's no supernatural element here, as is common in Johnson's novels, and Longmire is never truly tested, but readers who wish they were deputized in this particular posse will be eager to go along for the ride.
