Craig Johnson is the author of twelve novels in the Walt Longmire mystery series, which has garnered popular and critical acclaim with the last six books landing on the New York Times bestseller list. The newest in the series is, "An Obvious Fact" rounding out a dozen novels (A Serpent's Tooth, Dry Bones) with his beloved sheriff. Along with short stories and novellas, Johnson hasn't lost a step. An Obvious Fact is fresh and exciting, while retaining the attributes that make this series so popular. It's witty and complex with pop culture weaved into clever Sherlock Holmes literary references. The brilliantly colorful, snappy dialogue remains second to none. And dynamic characters surprise and delight readers with their charm, authenticity and depth. The most obvious fact is not deceptive at all: Craig Johnson writes a mighty fine story. Shelf Awareness
