 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.
