T. Jefferson Parker has done it again with a book that captivates the reader and takes them into a world of corruption and revenge. Such compelling characters bring this book alive telling a story that will blow you away. Storm Runners is a fast paced, entertaining book that every crime enthusiast must take the time to read. I have read Mr. Parker’s work before and will continue to read the thrillers he continues to pen.
