Publisher's Summary

Vietnam vet and former pro football player Wyatt Storme is bow-hunting in Missouri when he stumbles upon a hidden field of marijuana, and is attacked by a vicious dog and shot at by a sniper. He reports violent incident confidentially to the local Sheriff, who is murdered the next day. Storme believes there's a connection and starts asking questions, unraveling a deadly conspiracy of corruption, drug-trafficking and organized crime, and making himself someone that just about everybody wants dead.

    "Captivating Listen"

    Typically I do not listen to many thrillers, as romance is my preferred genre, but I really enjoyed this one with all of the twists and turns. Parts of the book I really enjoyed and others not as much (I love dogs, so what happened I didn't like). The pace was fast and it kept me on my toes. I thought the narrator did a good job fitting the characters and the local dialect My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I enjoyed the humor that was added to this book as well. I was provided with this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!

    "Everything you want in an action adventure"
    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love when a story and a narrator are perfectly aligned. That is definitely this listen!

    This is my first J Rodney Turner listen but in no way will it be my last. His narration was perfection on a stick! I loved his dark and booming delivery and since I listen with earbuds most of the time, his is a voice I wanted constantly in my ears.

    The story was an incredible action adventure with enough bad guys to go around. I loved how the author added levity and snark into the dark subject and then mixed in a great bromance. I didn't want it to end.

    Thank goodness there will be a book two!!

    "Witty dialogue with great narration"
    What did you love best about Hail Storme?

    I found the Wyatt and Chick to be two of the most interesting characters I've listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Clever dialogue that made me chuckle several times.


    What does J. Rodney Turner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The deep voice of J. Rodney Turner is perfect for such strong male characters. This was the first time I have listened to one of his performances but I will definitely be looking for more.


    Any additional comments?

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "A fun, snarky adventure story worth a listen"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    The story is full of action and engaging characters. Wyatt Storme is a totally cliche main character but you can't help but love him. Mr. Turner also did a fantastic job on the narration. I enjoyed every minute of this audio book and will look more from this duo in the future.

    This is an excellent book. The suspense is palpable and the build up is superb. This story is so realistic and so believable and so frustrating!

    Story
    "A wild ride."

    This is the first book in the Wyatt Storme series and the first book by W.L. Ripley that I've experienced. What a wild ride. This story is about Wyatt Storme, ex-soldier, ex-football star, who gets pulled into a mystery dealing with a new super drug and murder. As I said, it's a wild ride. Fast paced and action packed. Storme is a great character, as is the sidekick he picks up along the way, and you instantly like him and root for him.

    J. Rodney Turner narrates the book and WOW am I impressed. This guy has an awesome voice and it suits the character well. His voice is gravely and instantly gives off the sense that this guy is a badass. Hearing him for the first time I instantly thought "this is the voice of a cowboy'. Seriously, the mental image that flashed in my min was Jack Palance in the City Slicker movies. I checked out his other work and surprise surprise it seems a ton of his narration work is for Westerns. I will definitely be checking out more of his work.

    Overall great narration for an exciting story. Definitely worth the time!

    I received a copy of this audio title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Story
    "Excellent"

    Hail Storme: A Wyatt Storme Thriller captured my attention immediately and did not let me go until the final sentence. The story was compelling and well written but equally riveting was the narration. With the sonorous whiskey smoky voice of Tom Stechschulte and the masculine urgency of Dick Hill, J. Rodney Turner delivered a first rate performance. The first thing that I did after finishing the book was to look for book 2 in the Hail Storme series. I will wait patiently. I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for my review but It is well worth the price of a credit. Thanks

    Story
    "Storme warning for southern Missouri."

    This was a truly enjoyable action-packed thriller with great characters and a fast moving plot. If you enjoyed the likes of Jack Reacher or Nathan McBride I guarantee you will enjoy Wyatt Storme. The witty dialog between Storme and his unexpected partner Chick Easton reminded me of the dialog between Elvis Cole & Joe Pike by Robert Crais. Storme is a Vietnam Vet and ex-NFL star receiver who, while deer hunting in Missouri, came upon a large marijuana field. That discovery began a series of events filled with mystery, murder, treachery and conspiracy. Storme was to meet the friend of a friend and give him a ride back to Colorado. This friend turns out to be Easton, also a Vietnam Vet who worked for the CIA neutralizing high value targets; aka a Spook, aka an assassin. Together Storme and Easton turn over one rock after another discovering crooked politicians, cops, and lawyers, with a pinch of organized crime. The action was fast and loose and very entertaining. This is a book after all for entertainment value. People shouldn’t take this so seriously and/or be offended by a fictional story. I for one laughed many times and look forward to more from W.L. Ripley. The narration by J. Rodney Turner was excellent as well. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
