Dry Bones, by Craig Johnson
Craig Johnson can be funny, and he can be heart-breaking. The light and funny books provide a leavening that the series needs even though they may not represent the absolute best of his work. Dry Bones is crafted around the discovery of the skeleton of an adult t-rex on property of the Lone Elk family. Everyone has interest in this multi-million dollar find, and Walt's efforts to find the killer of patriarch Danny Lone Elk are hampered by politics, greed, and love.
