9780060854232: Storm Runners: A Novel

Matt Stromsoe has come a long way since his wife and son were killed in an explosion meant for him. Wounded severely in both body and spirit, Stromsoe gave up the last thing that held any meaning for him—his job on the police force—and proceeded to hit rock bottom, hard.

That was a lifetime ago, and finally the spiral of personal destruction and despair seems to have come to an end. The man responsible for the murders—Stromsoe's best friend from childhood and his wife's old lover—is behind bars and Stromsoe has put the past behind him, rescued from the abyss by a former colleague who offers him a job at his private security firm. Stromsoe's first assignment is to protect local television personality Frankie Hatfield from a stalker. But the further Stromsoe is drawn into this case, the more he finds that the net of intrigue is wide and ultimately leads back to the man who killed his family. As events conspire against him, Stromsoe learns that prison is no safeguard against revenge.

T. Jefferson Parker has been hailed as belonging "in the first rank of American crime novelists" (Washington Post Book World) and praised for "some of the finest writing you'll ever read" (Chicago Sun-Times). Superbly crafted, emotionally complex, and filled with heart-stopping action, Storm Runners proves why the novels of T. Jefferson Parker are impossible to resist.

From AudioFile:

In this latest from T. Jefferson Parker, Christopher Lane offers a credible narration of a highly incredible plot. Lane's voice is crisp and clear as he tells the story of an ex-deputy sheriff injured in a bomb blast that kills his wife and child. The bomb was set off by a boyhood friend, who is now a Harvard-educated barrio killer. The recovering hero is hired to protect a TV weather reporter from a stalker set loose by the villain. The stalker is trying to steal a rain-making chemical from the weather reporter for the local water and power company chief. Lane's voices lend some reality, but not enough to save this watered-down story. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
