"The Western Star" is the 13th book in the famous Longmire series by Craig Johnson.
Softcover Western novel
Sheriff Walt Longmire is enjoying a beer when a younger sheriff shows him a photograph of twenty-five armed men standing in front of a Challenger steam locomotive. It transports him back to a time when, fresh from the battlefields of Vietnam, then-deputy Longmire accompanied his boss Lucian Connally to the annual Wyoming sheriff's junket held on the excursion train known as the Western Star. Armed with his trusty Colt .45 and a paperback of Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express," the young Walt was ill-prepared for the machinations of 24 veteran sheriffs, let alone the cavalcade of curious characters that accompanied them.
