Description

"Parker glides from novel to novel, usually taking us in unexpected new directions. If you're interested in the best of today's crime fiction, he's someone you should read." -The Washington Post

"Parker displays his knack for creating captivating characters and his unabashed passion for California lore. Only two other authors-Dick Francis and James Lee Burke-have won the Edgar for best novel twice. Don't be surprised if Parker is on his way to a third." -Booklist (starred review)

"Parker could well be the best crime writer working out of Southern California." -Chicago Tribune

"As always with a Parker novel, the characters are superbly drawn, the California landscape is evocatively portrayed and the exceptional prose swings from lyrical to hard-boiled." -Associated Press

"No writer can match Parker when it comes to character and mood, and in The Renegades he has fashioned a masterpiece of postmodern noir. Here is a brilliant craftsman and storyteller at the height of his powers." -Providence Journal

"If there's a better mystery writer around...well, there isn't." -San Diego Union Tribune

"Parker's characters are compelling and well drawn, and his plot propels them through busy sequences filled with surprising turns." -Wall Street Journal

"LA Outlaws introduces one of the most enticing heroines in recent American crime fiction. . . . All of Parker's skills are on display here: vivid writing, strong characters, clockwork plotting, agonizing suspense and, finally, an ending that manages to be just right. LA Outlaws is popular entertainment at its most delicious." -Washington Post Book World

"The devil is very much present in this troubled landscape, and he's the ultimate shape-shifter, as Parker has so adeptly proven with his Charlie Hood titles. Parker's dark and gritty series takes readers beyond the drug war headlines, personalizing the toll it's taken on our souls. Series fans will devour this sequel to Iron River." -Library Journal

"In the fourth of his ambitious Border series (Iron River, 2010, etc.), Parker pits veteran agent Charlie Hood against errant good guys, vicious bad guys and maybe something in the paranormal guise. An excess of subplots softens the middle a bit, but this is a rich book, packed with action, violence, love, lust, flashes of wit, moments of poignancy and the occasional sharp geopolitical insight. Despite 17 novels ranging from first-rate to extraordinary, Parker has somehow managed not to become a household name, which means enough of you aren't trying." -Kirkus
