mario said: T.J. Parker is one of the best current crime writers. Great characters, unusual crimes, complicated and morally ambiguous situations, all handled superbly. His novels are unforgettable. I sense a stylistic (and even thematic) affinity with Robert Stone, another favorite author of mine.


i liked _laguna heat_. can't remember names, but i thought the grown daughter of the first murder victim was well drawn. come to think of it, he's good at developing all his characters... even the minor ones. on the biker subject, there was a great harley character in this book. the protagonist rode some unmemorable european crotch rocket.

i thought the plot dragged just a tiny bit, though.
