On the heels of A&E’s blockbuster show Longmire—the latest New York Times bestseller in a “a top-notch tale of complex emotions and misguided treachery” (USA Today)
The recent A&E premiere of Longmire—a television series based on Craig Johnson’s New York Times bestselling Walt Longmire Mystery Series—was the highest rated scripted drama in the network’s history and consistently held its viewers throughout the season. Its success has readers stampeding to the bookstore, making As the Crow Flies Johnson’s biggest hardcover success.
In his eighth adventure, Walt Longmire doesn’t have time for criminals. His daughter is getting married in two weeks and the wedding locale arrangements have just gone up in smoke signals. He needs to find a new site for the nuptials—fast. Unfortunately, his expedition to the Cheyenne Reservation is derailed by a grisly death. It’s not Walt’s turf, but he’s coerced into the investigation by Lolo Long, the beautiful new tribal police chief.
“Walt continues to be excellent company because he’s always keen to learn something from the strong Indian characters in this series…This time a wizened old medicine woman takes Walt in hand, guiding him through a Native American Church peyote ceremony deep in the woods…he [has] a vision that expands his mind and helps him solve the case.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
