I could not believe that the guy who wrote Bluebird Canyon wrote Triphammer. The Triphammer character in Canyon is often written in such a crass tone, but in Triphammer, he's actually rather loving. He meets a woman, Sydney, who completely turns his life around. She's twenty years younger than he is, she's working on her doctoral thesis and teaching at the local university (he's a cop who only graduated high school), yet they seem to connect on a deep level. So many times Triphammer speaks of Sydney in very loving ways, and while Triphammer in Canyon wasn't horrible or a complete womanizer, it was still a surprise to see a tender side to the Triphammer name.
