Trevor H. Cooley is the author. Is that Edgewriter here? This book has a rating of 3.95 on Goodreads so apparently must be pretty good (and the rest of the series is rated even higher). I have it on my TBR list and hopefully will get to it someday. Let us know what you think, @fishonjazz. Edit: Rats, my library doesn't have any of his books.
