He reports the violent incident confidentially to the local Sheriff…who is murdered the next day. Storme believes there’s a connection and starts asking questions, unraveling a deadly conspiracy of corruption, drug-trafficking and organized crime… and making himself someone that just about everybody wants dead.

As much joyful bashing as it is "Red Harvest" on uppers, though completely innocent of Hammett's dark vision. Fighting the good fight has seldom been so much atavistic fun
Great fun. Damn fine writing. Jack Reacher with a bow and arrow. Prose beautiful and forceful. Like a clean punch to the jaw.
Storme is one of my all-time favorite series characters, up there with Spenser and Dave Robicheaux
A lively adventure and an undeniable treat
For those of us who still feel an ache for the immortal John D. MacDonald, there might finally be a replacement on the horizon
