But as Ford digs into the details of a troubled marriage, Natalie's disappearance becomes more and more complicated.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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
“The plot is as well crafted as it is thought provoking. Parker writes with confidence, insight, and real humanity.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
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
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
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
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
[An] adrenaline-charged adventure. New York Times Book Review
