(2016) Probably the best story by Johnson, but not a novel. A Wyoming highway patrol officer is hearing a call on her radio from a long dead officer requesting assistance. He was killed in a firery crash in a series of tunnels that has long been proclaimed haunted. She insists she is hearing the call but noone believes her so Walt and Henry are brought in to investigate. Part of the mystery involves gold dollar coins long missing from a robbery the dead officer investigated, keep showing up just before some tragic event occurs. One of those is Longmire's near death by drowning when he attempts to save the HP officer from an apparent suicide. Turns out that the calls were being made by one of the original officer's fellow flat hats who is trying to clear the dead man's reputation. Still doesn't explain the mysterious figure in HP garb who helps save lives at the climatic crash in the tunnel.

I've read all of the Longmire books, and this is probably my favorite. Possibly because I like the supernatural elements. The rest of the novels kind of run together for me, but this one stands out. ( )

The Highwayman is book 11.5 in the Walt Longmire Series. Well, it's not a book it's a novella, but it's 190 pages long so it feels almost like a "real book"...

I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of this book and in anticipation of An Obvious Fact (book twelve in the series that comes this fall) was this book a pleasant appetizer.

I found the story interesting with an Arapaho patrolman supposedly haunting the Wind River Canyon. Is highway patrolman Rosey Wayman mad or is she really hearing Bobby Womack calling for assistance? Either way, it's a wonderfully written story. Craig Johnson has a way of writing a book that makes me slow down the reading to really appreciate each and every word. John Connolly is another writer that just can put words together and create such fine magic that every page is a pure joy to read. You know the kind of books that perhaps takes a long way to building up the story before everything explodes, but you don't care and don't feel bored because you enjoy the slow, but steady pace.

Craig Johnson also has some pretty fine characters that carry the story. Walt Longmire is such a stable and strong characters, and I love it when Henry Standing Bear his pal since childhood shows up and assist him in various cases. And, of course, I love their banter. Then, we have Vic, Walt's fierce deputy who he is having a kind of relationship with. She was unfortunately not in this book. But, I do hope she will show up in An Obvious Fact.

A solid and interesting story with some action and even some funny moments. This book was a great read and I recommend this series warmly! ( )

Excellent novella. Makes especially good reading around this time of year. ( )

Strong start but I am not sure I know why anyone did anything in this story. And to be clear -- I'll take an inscrutable Longmire story over a lot of other things. ( )

Wyoming’s scenic Wind River Canyon provides the setting for this atmospheric Walt Longmire novella, an update, according to Johnson (The Spirit of Steamboat) in the acknowledgments, of a Charles Dickens ghost story, “The Signal-Man.” ... You don’t have to be a fan of Longmire, the hit Netflix series, to appreciate this clever tale.

And still of a winter's night, they say, when the wind is in the trees, when the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, when the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor, a highwayman comes riding. --Alfred Noyes, "The Highwayman"

There is a canyon in the heart of Wyoming carved by a river called Wind and a narrow, opposing, two-lane highway that follows its every curve like a lover.
