"Mesmerizing and haunting."--Lisa Gardner

"T. Jefferson Parker is the poet of American crime fiction, and The Room of White Fire absolutely proves why."--C.J. Box

"A fast-paced, beautifully written thriller."-- The Washington Post

In this stirring thriller from New York Times bestseller and award winner T. Jefferson Parker, P.I. Roland Ford must hunt down a soldier who is damaged by war, dangerous, and on the run.

Roland Ford--once a cop, then a marine, now a private investigator--is good at finding people. But when he's asked to locate an Air Force veteran who's escaped from a mental institution, he realizes he's been drawn into something deep and dark. What he doesn't know is why a shroud of secrecy hangs over the disappearance of Clay Hickman--and why he's getting a different story from everyone involved. In a flash, what began as just a job becomes a life-or-death obsession for Ford, pitting him against immensely powerful and treacherous people and forcing him to contend with chilling questions about truth, justice, and the American way.

Excellent, enjoyable read. Roland Ford is a great protagonist. San Diego and surrounding SoCal area is an exceptional setting. Parker brings them all to vivid life in this great book.

An excellent book. Thought- provoking story, detailing some of the moral issues of our drone warfare.

Oh my. So much talking. Hard to believe this is the author of the brilliant Silent Joe.

This is a really good book, although I will admit I almost quit reading it because of the torcher is pretty gruesome. I did finish, and I was glad I did.

Read every one of Parker's books in the past.
This is the LAST one I will read by this "man".
