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 fourth action-packed novel featuring Wyatt Storme, the ex-football player turned troubleshooter that critics are hailing as the best thing since Robert B. Parker's Spenser. Read by J. Rodney Turner
To help a desperate friend, ex-footballer Wyatt Storme and his hard-charging buddy Chick Easton ride shotgun on an illegal gun shipment. Things go very wrong, putting Wyatt in the crosshairs of corrupt politicians, homicidal mobsters, and rogue CIA agents.
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.
