Description


What if the client who's hired you can't be trusted...and the woman you're looking for doesn't want to be found? With Then She Vanished, three-time Edgar Award winner and New York Times-bestselling author T. Jefferson Parker delivers a new and pulse-pounding thriller.

Private Investigator Roland Ford has taken a job for a fellow Marine and a rising politician, Dalton Strait. Strait is contending with unexplained bombings of government buildings in his district...but that is not why he hired Ford. Strait's wife, Natalie, has gone missing, leaving behind a cryptic plea for help. Strait has made many enemies during his time in politics--including some of his own family members--all of whom could be looking for revenge. But as Ford digs into the details of a troubled marriage, Natalie's disappearance becomes more and more complicated.

Meanwhile, the bombings in the city intensify, with a mysterious group known only as the Chaos Committee claiming responsibility. Ford soon learns that the seemingly random attacks may be connected to the case he's on--and suddenly, his hunt for a missing woman might decide the fate of an entire city.

Praise For…


Praise for Then She Vanished

“The plot is as well crafted as it is thought provoking. Parker writes with confidence, insight, and real humanity.”--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Parker’s incisive character portraits and smooth, confident prose make his latest thriller taut and engaging.”--Kirkus Reviews 

Praise for The Last Good Guy

 
"[An] adrenaline-charged adventure."New York Times Book Review
 
"A twisty cautionary tale that will leave readers pondering the damage done in the name of misguided religious fervor and patriotism and yearning for more good guys like Ford to bring justice to our world."Los Angeles Times
 
"Parker tells the tale in tight, vivid prose that at times borders on the lyrical."--Associated Press
 
Praise for Swift Vengeance
 
“Non-stop action…[T. Jefferson Parker’s] new series succeeds not only in entertaining but also in challenging readers to ponder the circle of vengeance unleashed by the Iraq war and America's seemingly endless war on terror.”—Associated Press
 
“Roland Ford is a compelling hero: financially comfortable but not emotionally complacent, empathetic and equipped with the training and inclination to vanquish wickedness.”—Wall Street Journal
 
“Parker remains one of our finest novelists…a powerful tale rich in both character and story that makes Roland Ford the modern-day equivalent of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee.”—Providence Journal
 
Praise for The Room of White Fire
 
“Parker is the poet of American crime fiction, and The Room of White Fire absolutely proves why.”—C.J. Box
 
"Ford's assignment, as he redefines it, becomes much more complex than tracking down a missing person. His noble goal is not only to find Hickman but to heal him."—Wall Street Journal
 
"Parker deftly builds the tension from suspense to menace to an overwhelming sense of dread. The result is a fast-paced, beautifully written thriller."—The Washington Post

This book is vastly important. It deals with one of the darkest parts of American history that is so often left untaught and overlooked: the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. This graphic novel tells George Takei’s story of going through that dark time as a child, with the strangeness of growing up in an interment camp, the weight his parents carried for the family, and the deep cultural and personal trauma left behind by the internment-- but also the inspiration this experience gave him to be an activist for change. This book is heavy but oh-so necessary and very moving, and it is truly a very engaging and enthralling read.
