A new Longmire mystery novel is set to arrive on May 13. Any Other Name (2014) is the eleventh book in the Craig Johnson-penned Western mystery series. The novels are the inspiration for the hit A&E contemporary Western TV series Longmire, which debuts its 3rd season on June 2nd. Johnson serves as a consultant for the show.
Johnson, a former law enforcement officer, sets his stories in contemporary Wyoming and works to incorporate present-day issues and events into the story-lines. The lead character of the novels, Walt Longmire, is a widowed sheriff in the fictional Wyoming county of Absaroka. The books are published by Viking Penguin.
Johnson is set to debut his novel on May 8th with an event at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming. The appearance will include a discussion and book signing. Advance copies of Any Other Name will be available and further information about the event can be found at Longmire@Cody.
