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 ...… (mere)

From Amazon:

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.

My Thoughts:

Storm Runners introduces readers to Matt Stromsoe, a sheriff's deputy whose wife and child are killed in an assassination attempt meant for him. I usually really like T.Jefferson Parker's writing but this one struck me as a novel written in a hurry. It's mostly dialogue, which is not this author's strong point. Along with an unrealistic plot and underdeveloped characters made this book not one of Parker's best. I know he can do so much better than this. The saving grace for this that earned it an extra star was the hero, Stromsoe. He is an interesting character and would have been better served with a storyline that was stronger and more revealing of this character. ( )

Review by: Nopainnojain

A very captivating book, Parker is a great writer. Storm Runners is not a light read and at times it can confuse you, but if you like sciencey books as well as action Storm Runners is for you. ( )

Fascinating thriller featuring a contest between an ex-deputy and a vicious gang leader. Rain-making and politics also feature in the plot. Note: this is a thriller, not a mystery like California Girl, by the same author. ( )

I read this thinking T. Jefferson Parker is Robert B. Parker's son, but don't know whether that's true or not. His style has some of the same laid back ease with which RBP writes, and some of the same kind of interesting by play and word play between the bad and good guys. The book kept my attention, and I really liked the rainmaking theme, the water history, and the main characters (kept hoping the good and mostly good ones would stay alive!) There was plenty of action, some good dialogue, a little humor...the only flaw, I thought, wasthat too many things happened too conveniently, too much coincidence to be believable. But all in all, a good writer and a good story. ( )
