Over the last decade, Johnson has been busy writing western mystery novels starring this small town crime-solver sheriff, Walt Longmire. In 2012 A&E began airing the TV series based on these books, and they have proven quite popular.
We have most of Johnson's books in our collections, so I urge you to give one a try. They are set in contemporary times in the upper midwest. He does carry on the tradition of the western novel here, and gives them the added quality of a mystery. Here are a few of his recent titles to get you started...
As the Crow Flies by Craig Johnson
A Serpent's Tooth by Craig Johnson
Spirit of Steamboat by Craig Johnson
Hell is Empty by Craig Johnson
