The fourth novel featuring Wyatt Storme, the ex-football player turned troubleshooter that critics are hailing as the long-awaited heir to Travis McGee and Spenser 

“Storme is one of my all-time favorite series characters, up there with Spenser and Dave Robicheaux,” Ace Atkins, the New York Times Bestselling author of The Forsaken and Robert B. Parker's Cheap Shot 

Vietnam vet and former Dallas Cowboys player Wyatt Storme just wants to be left alone in his remote Ozarks cabin – but violence and trouble have a knack for finding him. And when it does, he doesn’t back down. This time, Chick Easton, a hard-drinking, shockingly lethal ex-CIA agent, asks his buddy Storme for back-up when he's hired by the director of a big budget western to protect a bad-boy movie star who is getting well-deserved death threats. There’s also an annoying catch: the director wants to shoot the star’s new western on Storme’s land. Storme reluctantly agrees to it all, unaware that a sociopathic mob enforcer that he once put in traction, and in prison, is on his way and gunning for revenge. 

"Here's one for the boys who love to kick butt….Storme has the catlike moves of the early Spenser, before he got to be such a prig,” Kirkus Reviews 

"For those of us who still feel an ache for the immortal John D. MacDonald, there might finally be a replacement on the horizon." Tampa Tribune 

"Wyatt Storme and his more dangerous sidekick, screw-loose ex-CIA operative Chick Easton, are not only engaging and supremely resourceful, but guaranteed to bring a smile to your face." -The Rap Sheet 

"Storme tries to lead a quiet, solitary life but is something of a magnet for trouble and violence. Bad luck for Storme, but very fortunate for fans of well-crafted crime fiction...The main attraction to this series has always been Storme’s insightful first-person narration. This, along with the intensely personal code that directs his life but still allows for an abundance of compassion, has earned Ripley’s protagonist comparisons to John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee and Spenser of the early mystery novels of Robert B. Parker. Both elements are in full-force in this latest work and lend the story a satisfying richness rarely experienced in contemporary crime fiction." -Bookgasm 

"Wyatt is tough, and his ex-CIA buddy Chick may be even tougher. [Wyatt] is reminiscent of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser, but his cooking isn’t as adventurous. For a person whose style makes laid-back seem like caffeine high, he has a penchant for ultra-violence, yet it comes off as justifiable." -Kings River Life Magazine

“This is a fine series that has improved dramatically with each outing. Superior entertainment." Booklist
