Cole Springer Trilogy (Books #1-#3)
COLE SPRINGER HAS A MUSICAL SOUL, A QUICK WIT, AND A CON MAN’S MIND.
Ex-Secret Service agent, Cole Springer, has exchanged his badge for a piano and the high-altitude life of Aspen, Colorado but has not lost his appetite for danger.
Springer delights in playing button men and gangsters for personal gain and amusement. Springer, while an affable man, is double tough, hard to kill, and has an ironic sense of humor. His girlfriend, determined CBI agent Tobi Ryder, doesn’t know whether to love him, forget him, or arrest him for his escapades that skirt the edges of law…
The Cole Springer Trilogy includes Springer’s Gambit, Springer’s Longshot, and Springer’s Fortune.
"Springer's Gambit is both fluent and riveting. Cole Springer is a comer and so is W.L. Ripley."— Literary legend, Robert B. Parker, best-selling author of the Spenser and Jesse Stone mystery series.
"Boston has Spenser. South Florida has Travis McGee. Now the New West has Cole Springer—a two-fisted piano player with a sharp wit and brooding soul. This is the best-written crime novel I've read since the debut of James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux."—Ace Atkins, author of Leavin' Trunk Blues
