Orange County Launch Party for her newest Kate Reilly mystery KISS THE BRICKS, release date May 2, 2017
For fans of Michael Connelly and CJ Box, a stirring thriller from New York Times bestseller and award winner T. Jefferson Parker: The Room of White Fire is the tale of a private investigator tasked with hunting down a returned soldier broken and made dangerous by his experiences at war.
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.
After the first practice session for the legendary Indianapolis 500 motor race, Kate Reilly is stunned to discover she was the fastest driver--but she's more surprised to learn she wasn't the first woman to top the speed charts in the race's 106-year history. That feat was accomplished in 1987 by PJ Rodriguez--who shocked everyone by committing suicide ten days later.
When the press, bloggers, and social media go crazy over the connection, Kate loses her identity-- suddenly everyone's comparing Kate and PJ, calling Kate PJ, and wondering if Kate will kill herself, too. Except that PJ's family claim PJ was murdered, and they want Kate's help finding her killer and restoring her reputation. Thirty years after the fact.
