About the Author
T. Jefferson Parker is the author of numerous novels and short stories, the winner of three Edgar Awards (for Silent Joe, California Girl, and the short story "Skinhead Central"), and the recipient of a Los Angeles Times Book Prize for best mystery (Silent Joe). Before becoming a full-time novelist, he was an award-winning reporter. He lives in Fallbrook, California.

"Outstanding...though there's plenty of suspense, danger, and illicit activity on offer, the novel's focus is squarely on the Stonebreaker clan, whose bonds and fractures prove utterly riveting in Parker's hands. This ranks among the author's best."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Fast-paced... recommended for fans of Parker's previous works and those interested in California's surf culture and in characters trying to move on after a painful personal loss."--Library Journal

Praise for The Rescue:

"For lovers of quality crime fiction; Parker never disappoints." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Stunning...Another fine effort from the talented Parker."--Booklist (starred review)

"The author is a quiet master who delivers all the action and emotion a reader might wish." --The Wall Street Journal

"T. Jefferson Parker is a marvel. I've been reading him with delight and admiration for years. The Rescue again shows that he hits the high water mark for crime fiction every time out. Graceful prose, nuanced characters, an emotional thread woven through each scene tying it to a propulsive plot. Whether he's writing about cartels or PD, street dogs or reluctant heroines, he gets to the authentic and the compelling." --Gregg Hurwitz, the New York Times bestselling author of Dark Horse

"Parker's The Rescue ain't no street mutt of a book, but rather a Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show blue-ribbon, pure pedigree of a novel with claws sharpened and fangs bared. Fass!" --Craig Johnson, bestselling author of the Longmire mystery series
