Competition: Longmire – Craig Johnson

Win signed copies of the first two Walt Longmire books.

We’re still loving Longmire, the TV crime drama starring Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff over on TCMUK. Seeing as they’re based on the New York Times bestselling Walt Longmire books, we thought we’d give away the first two books. And they’re both signed by the author, Craig Johnson, himself!

Here’s what we’ve got up for grabs:


The Cold Dish



After twenty-five years as Sheriff of Absaroka County, Walt Longmire’s hopes of ending his tenure in peace are dashed when Cody Pritchard is found dead near the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Two years earlier, Cody was one of four high school boys given suspended sentences for raping a local Cheyenne girl. Somebody, it would seem, is seeking vengeance, and Longmire might be the only thing standing between the three remaining boys and a Sharps .45-70 rifle.

With lifelong friend Henry Standing Bear and Deputy Victoria Moretti, Walt Longmire attempts to see that revenge, a dish best served cold, is never served at all.


Death Without Company



When Mari Baroja is found poisoned at the Durant Home for Assisted Living, Sheriff Longmire is drawn into an investigation that reaches fifty years into the mysterious woman’s past. Her connections to Wyoming’s Basque community, the lucrative coal-bed methane industry and the personal life of the previous sheriff, Lucian Connally, lead to a complex web of half-truths and assumed alliances.

Aided by his friend Henry Standing Bear, Deputy Victoria Moretti and newcomer Santiago Saizarbitoria, Sheriff Longmire must connect the present with the spectre of the past to find the killer.

To win signed copies of both of these books, email your name and address to with the subject header ‘Longmire’ by Monday 12 May. But be sure to read the Terms and Conditions first!

The Walt Longmire books are all available in ebook on The Murder Room and are all well worth a read. The TV show, Longmire, is shown on TCM every Sunday at 9pm.
