Reviews For W.L. Ripley

Real People Don’t Talk Like That 5.0

Ripley is the blue-collar Elmore Leonard, toiling in the workaday world of the genre mainstream but turning out finely crafted caper novels featuring nimble, fast-talking protagonists who see larceny as an opportunity for good clean fun.
