Dry Bones is the 11th book in the Longmire mystery series. This is the first I’ve read and there is even a TV series (which I hadn’t heard of but would like to watch!). The good news is that even though there are 10 preceding books, they don’t need to be read to enjoy this one. However, I hope to find the time and start at the beginning now!
In this book, dry bones refer to a recently discovered dinosaur. More specifically, one of the largest and most intact Tyrannosaurus Rex found to date. The problem, of course, is that everyone seems to think they have a claim on the beast which causes a lot of trouble. On top of that, the owner of the ranch where the T-Rex was found is himself found floating facedown in in a reservoir.
