For fans of Michael Connelly and C.J. Box: a stirring thriller from New York Times bestseller and award winner T. Jefferson Parker. In The Room of White Fire, a P.I. must hunt down a soldier who is damaged by war, dangerous, and on the run. A young soldier escaped from a mental institution. A P.I. carrying his own wounds hired to track that soldier down. A race against the clock to bring the soldier home before he reveals the secret that haunts him. Roland Ford -- once a cop, then a marine, 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 war, having served as a Marine in first Fallujah; he also knows personal pain, as only two years have passed since his wife, Justine, died. 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. To begin with, there's Sequoia, the teenage woman who helped Clay escape; she's smart enough to fend off Ford's questions but impetuous enough to be on the run with an armed man. Then there's Paige Hulet, Clay's doctor, who clearly cares deeply for his welfare but is impossible to read, even as she inspires in Ford the first desire he has felt since his wife's death. And there's Briggs Spencer, the proprietor of the mental institution who is as enigmatic as he is brash, and ambitious to the point of being ruthless. What could Clay possibly know to make this search so desperate? What began as just a job becomes a life-or-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

As the writer gets dangerously entangled in this deadly intrigue, his wife Isabella fights a terminal brain tumor
The triggerman's dance by T. Jefferson Parker( Book )

26 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Rebecca Harris was murdered in front of the Orange Country Journal offices, she left behind friends and colleagues shocked at her senseless death. But she also left behind an emotional mystery. There were two men in her life: Joshua Weinstein--the tough, dark, passionate, Jewish FBI agent she was engaged to; and John Menden--the blond, WASP, slick newsman who was her lover. Both men knew of the other's existence in Rebecca's life--and each hoped that when she made her ultimate decision between them, he would be the one chosen. But now, six months after the murder, a scarred and driven Weinstein has discovered the identity of the murderer--but doesn't have the evidence to make an arrest. And the only person he knows who is as driven and intense about avenging the murder is Menden--a man whom the obsessed Weinstein has had under surveillance all this time, watching to see if Menden had the guts to join him on this crusade of revenge. Menden's role is to go undercover inside the secret domain of a right-wing private security organization that was behind the killing--and get the proof. Weinstein's role is to be the behind-the-scenes point man who uses the power of the FBI and its sophisticated techniques to run the operation. But Menden doesn't expect that the man who is his target will be quite as intelligent as he turns out to be; nor that his daughter will be quite so alluring. And when things start to go wrong, and Menden is on his own, he starts to wonder: Is he here because he's expendable? Is this Weinstein's final revenge for Rebecca's infidelity? And whom, finally, should he trust?
