Charley Lee Stillwater’s death by heart attack at the Wyoming Home for Soldiers and Sailors presents Sheriff Walt Longmire with a conundrum.  Why does Charley have a shoebox with a million dollars and a painting? Custer’s Last Fight by Cassilly Adams depicting the Battle of the Little Big Horn was painted in three giant panels.  Adolphus Busch paid $30,000 for the painting, and Anheuser-Busch gave away copies that hung in bars across the west promoting Budweiser Beer.  A fire in Fort Bliss Texas destroyed the painting in 1946, or did it?  And away we go!

Craig Johnson’s Sheriff Walt Longmire series is a treasure.  He presents likeable characters with a strong moral compass who face situations that challenge.  They become like good friends to the reader, each new book is an opportunity to see what is happening with Walt, Henry Standing Bear and Vic.  Vic is the toughest of the group, she  never backs down and is ready to take on all comers.  Walt, a big guy able to handle trouble, would just as soon settle things amicably.  Henry Standing Bear is a charmer!  Funny and bright, but loyal to his friends and deadly when the situation requires it.  Craig Johnson lives in Wyoming, he makes the landscape a character in the books, so vividly is it portrayed.  Reading can feel like visiting those wide-open spaces.

Description


The new novel in the beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series.

One of the most viewed paintings in American history, Custer's Last Fight, copied and distributed by Anheuser-Busch at a rate of over two million copies a year, was destroyed in a fire at the 7th Cavalry Headquarters in Fort Bliss, Texas, in 1946. Or was it? When Charley Lee Stillwater dies of an apparent heart attack at the Wyoming Home for Soldiers & Sailors, Walt Longmire is called in to try and make sense of a piece of a painting and a Florsheim shoebox containing a million dollars, sending the good sheriff on the trail of a dangerous art heist.
