Former NFL All-Pro Wyatt Storme and ex-CIA assassin Chick Easton are fishing on the Lake of the Ozarks when gunmen blow by them in a boat, chasing a determined woman seeking justice for her family. Wyatt and Chick save the woman and are swept into a violent battle for control of a new casino and all the riches and power it will bring. The Kansas City mob, the Dixie Mafia and the local syndicate have them out-numbered and out-gunned but it’s the gangsters who should be worried. There’s a deadly storm coming…and his name is Wyatt.
The fifith Wyatt Storme novel is coming! Storme takes on the Kansas City mob, the Dixie Mafia and a local crime syndicate vying for control of a casino project.
The perfect storm of witty banter, clever action, and compelling mystery.
With a boom of thunder and lightning, Wyatt Storme is back again, as electric and glowing with energy as W.L. Ripley always makes him.
Ripley once again delivers sustained suspense, a corkscrew plot, and a plethora of evil-doers, in a perfectly executed thriller.
WL Ripley is a fantastic storyteller, and THUNDER STORME proves the point. And Ripley does it with a style reminiscent of the derring-do of the classic Travis McGee novels: smart, sassy, hilarious--and deadly. Wyatt Storme is that one-in-a-million tough guy with a brain, part philosopher, part enforcer, always on the right side of justice. Storme and Chick Easton may be the best duo since Riggs and Murtaugh--maybe since Butch and Sundance. With relentless action and crackling dialogue, THUNDER STORME comes at you full-force."
Ripley ably juggles humor and violence. Those looking for a testosterone-saturated romp will be satisfied.
