- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Dirk Cobb, an ambitious young lawyer with a fondness for the ladies that is not always reciprocated, hooks up with a sweet and very stylish department store manager as a diversion from the pressures of his job. But Dirk finds more than he bargained for when the young lady turns out to be not quite so innocent as he thought and soon leads him on a wild chase to solve an age old prophetic riddle, one that might just get him killed.
"There are lots of surprises in this opening volume of The Dirk Cobb Thrillers, the most exciting of which for me being the introduction of Jake and Snowflake from the popular Jake Stone series as allies of Dirk as he battles one deadly villain after another. Fans of the Jake Stone books are sure to get a kick out of Dirk's description of the lovely but ferocious Snowflake and her often hapless man Jake. I might have pictured this unlikely couple a bit differently, but then again Dirk is a guy with plenty of quirks of his own. An enjoyable and entertaining read whether or not you are acquainted with the Jake Stone books." Theodora

For fans of Peters' other series, The Jake Stone Thrillers, this one probes the characters a bit deeper, and I think it's a little darker too. As with Peters' other thrillers, this one has plenty of action and loads of powerful women. I especially enjoyed Dirk's reaction to meeting Snowflake and Jake Stone. The riddle that Dirk must solve is a Biblical prophecy. I won't give the plot away, but it's riveting and timely. Great read whether or not you're familiar with the Jake Stone books.
