T. Jefferson Parker has burgled the crumbling palace of Edgar Allan Poe for inspiration in The Famous and the Dead.”—The Wall Street Journal

Parker, the winner of three Edgar awards for crime fiction, again delivers a tale that is not only well plotted and suspenseful, but subtle, surprising and endearingly perverse.”—The Washington Post

Parker has always chaffed at the boundaries of the crime fiction genre, creating wildly inventive characters and surprising storylines. His risk-taking alone makes all of his work, including the Charlie Hood series, well worth reading.”—The Associated Press

Parker’s sparse, melodic prose is as simple as it is haunting. His writing is a wonder to behold…a riveting read.”—Providence Journal
