A young soldier escaped from a mental institution.

A P.I. carrying his own wounds hired to track that soldier down.

A race against the clock to bring the soldier home before he reveals the secret that could destroy him.

Roland Ford—once a Marine, then a cop, now a private investigator—is good at finding people. But when he’s asked to locate Air Force veteran Clay Hickman, he realizes he’s been drawn into something deep and dark. He knows the weight of war, having served as a Marine in First Fallujah; he also knows the nightmare of indescribable personal pain, as only two years have passed since his young wife’s sudden death. 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.

Soon, what began as just a job becomes a life-and-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.

 “T. Jefferson Parker is the poet of American crime fiction, and The Room of White Fire absolutely proves why. It’s topical, poignant, brutal, tragic and wry at the same time—and the tale thumps along with the rhythmic and stylistic soundtrack of a beating heart that seems to be shared by PI Roland Ford and Parker himself. There’s a damned good reason T. Jefferson Parker has won three Edgar Awards. The Room of White Fire is the opening salvo of a new series that might win him his fourth.”
—C.J. Box

“Bestseller Parker provides a glimpse into the shadowy, disturbing, and morally indefensible world of outsourced interrogation in this excellent series launch.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"An impressive series kickoff from the prolific Parker, packed with interesting supporting characters and written with clarity and economy."
—Kirkus Reviews

"Parker plays the reader like a virtuoso, with never a disappointing page. His hero is gutsy and vulnerable, the danger high-risk with treachery coming from all directions. And when you’re done, like me you’re going to be clamoring for more from this new series."
—Steve Berry

"A San Diego PI and veteran of the Gulf War takes a missing person case that plunges him into a maddening mystery. The unrelenting suspense and multiple dangers in his quest ultimately reveal that he is seeking nothing less than love lost and redemption for his own soul."
—Joseph Wambaugh

"Mesmerizing and haunting. The kind of shocking suspense that keeps you racing to the bitter end. The kind of compelling characters that leave you willing to read from the beginning again. I'm already counting down to the next book in the series."
—Lisa Gardner

“T. Jefferson Parker's richly haunting tale about the hidden costs of America's secret war on terror should be the next book you read. The Room of White Fire is sad and funny and deeply moving, classic California noir with heartbreaking prose and unexpected moments of grace.”
—Nicholas Petrie

"T. Jefferson Parker's muscular writing has dazzled for years. His characters are as authentic as the gripping situations he creates. The reader stands on the sidelines jaws agape. In The Room Of White Fire he once again demonstrates his Edgar Award-winning storytelling. He captivates and chokes the air out of the room. Masterful! There are few if any crime writers out there this good. Reader beware, The Room of White Fire will lock you inside and not let you out."
—Ridley Pearson

"T. Jefferson Parker weaves all the best of classic noir fiction into a thoroughly modern, beautifully written novel about the horrors of war, loss, and ultimately redemption. Twisting, psychologically astute, and brutally honest, The Room of White Fire is a thrill ride to be sure. But it’s also a moving story about the frailty of the human heart."
—Lisa Unger

“Like the authors of all great noir fiction, T. Jefferson Parker has given us an unforgettable investigator in the person of Roland Ford. The ex-Marine and combat veteran is part badass, part philosopher, and his wry insight into the world around him and the people in it are a pleasure to read. And read you will: Parker is a master at spinning a tale you can't put down.”
—Peter Heller
