Praise for Swift Vengeance

“Roland Ford is a compelling hero: financially comfortable but not emotionally complacent, empathetic and equipped with the training and inclination to vanquish wickedness. Mr. Parker’s devotees should be well-pleased.”Wall Street Journal

“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

“Parker remains one of our finest novelists as well as mystery-thriller writers. And in Swift Vengeance, he has fashioned 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

“Parker keeps quite a few balls in the air, skillfully steering us toward and away from a batch of possible killers while maintaining a twisty, relentless pace. As a result, his “Vengeance” is swift, indeed.”Minneapolis Star Tribune

“This is one of those rare novels–so cinematic and exciting with vivid characters to care about–that I could not help casting every role as I raced through pages.  Hollywood should grab it now!”—Joseph Wambaugh

“Terrific…The hunt for Caliphornia is suspenseful, the backstory behind the threats is disturbingly horrible, and the denouement is scary and satisfying. Parker deepens the narrative with musings on Ford’s life, the horrors and ambiguities of the war on terror, and the fine line between justice and vengeance.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Three-time Edgar Award winner Parker delivers another superb, fast-paced noir thriller. Readers of C.J. Box will enjoy the strong character development, while T.C. Boyle fans will appreciate the story line and the atmospheric California setting.”Library Journal (starred review)

“[Roland Ford] is a kick-ass warrior with a heart of gold…Parker’s writing is sharp, and each character in the extended cast is unique and finely nuanced despite the super-fast-paced narrative…This is quintessential California noir.”Booklist 

“Prolific Parker’s impressive prose and skill in sketching concise character portraits makes his complex follow-up to The Room of White Fire an all-too-believable page-turner.”Kirkus Reviews
