Praise for W.L. Ripley's work:
“Storme is one of my all-time favorite series characters, up there with Spenser and Dave Robicheaux,” Ace Atkins, the New York Times Best-selling author of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser series.
“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
“This is a fine series that has improved dramatically with each outing. Superior entertainment.” Booklist
