about

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 

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved this, so well worth your time. "Storme Warning" by W.L. Ripley is the second "Storme" book I've read and loved. Several months ago I read "Hail Storme" and gave it five stars, "Storme Warning" is even better. Wyatt Storme usually has an uncomplicated life. He lives in the remote woods of Missouri in a cabin he built himself. Although he's both a former soldier and star of the NFL who played for the Dallas Cowboys, he doesn't like the limelight. Wyatt loves the solitude of fishing and hunting and slow pace of his chosen home. It's hard though to stay off the grid but when Wyatt's best friend Chick Easton entices him to let a movie studio shoot the latest Jessie James movie on his land, Wyatt isn't surprised it brings with it a heap of trouble. The play of personalities against one another was the most enjoyable thing about this mystery. Wyatt and Chick's wise cracking continually aggravates the uppity, privileged Hollywood movie stars makes this book not only a great mystery but really funny too. Usually Wyatt is up against very deadly people, this time it's the attitude of the stars around him that elevates this book to a five star. I highly recommend this book and all the Storme books. Fortunately, they all work as stand alone mysteries too.
