    if there is a "usual" in T. Jefferson Parker's work, it's his recurring theme of the sins of the fathers being visited upon the sons. and of the rejuvenating affect water has on individuals

    5 chapters into L.A. Outlaws, he shifts both POV and tense from 1st person present to 3rd person past. although it's been done a lot lately by other authors as well as him, usually the shift occurs in chapters dealing with the antagonist. here, it's everyone else who isn't the protagonist (who's kind of an anti-hero). seamless work
