9780007149360: Cold Pursuit

When vengeance runs in the blood only murder can stop it dead, in this stunning new thriller from the award-winning author of Black Water.

Feuding families and a murdered millionaire.
A potentially explosive case.
Especially when the cop investigating belongs to one of the families …

Millionaire Pete Braga has been found bludgeoned to death in his San Diego mansion. Homicide cop Tom McMichael is on the case, but the Irish McMichaels and the Portuguese Bragas share a violent history – fifty years ago Braga shot McMichael’s grandfather dead, then McMichael’s father was accused of an attack that left Braga’s thirteen-year-old son brain-damaged.

Tom must put aside the feud and find the killer. But the investigation is to unfold like a bloody bloom, encompassing Braga’s business and family, the Catholic diocese, a multi-million dollar Indian casino, a prostitute, a cop, and, of course, McMichael’s own family …

Review:

Why isn't T Jefferson Parker as famous as, say, James Patterson or Robert B Parker? He's that good, and in some ways better. In Cold Pursuit, his 11th novel, San Diego homicide cop Tom McMichael finds himself investigating the bludgeoning to death of Pete Braga, a prominent city patriarch who was also a blood enemy of the McMichael family. It's a complex case fraught with political and economic pressures, ugly family history, police corruption and multiple red herrings, made more complex by McMichael's romantic attraction to a key suspect.

Parker's writing is a pleasure from the first sentence to the last: intelligent, often quietly poetic, cliché-free, and as crisp and dry as a good Pinot Gris. Here is the book's opening paragraph, which accomplishes several scene-setting tasks while pleasing both ear and brain:

That night the wind came hard off the Pacific, an El Nino event that would blow three inches of rain onto the roofs of San Diego. It was the first big storm of the season, early January and overdue. Palm fronds lifted with a plastic hiss and slapped against the windows of McMichael's apartment. The digitized chirp of his phone sounded ridiculous against the steady wind outside.

At times the book's richly complex plot gets confusing, and some sections aren't especially suspenseful. However, every page is absorbing and affecting and the ending is a shocker. Peopled by a teeming cast of full-blooded characters and set in a San Diego so vivid you can smell the beach and the blood, Cold Pursuit may be Parker's subtlest, most satisfying tale yet. --Nicholas H Allison, Amazon.com

Review:

Praise for Jefferson Parker:

'Insanely imaginative' New York Times

‘Parker has only one rival – Thomas Harris’ Washington Post

Praise for Cold Pursuit:

‘I’m always a sucker for a good American police procedural, and Cold Pursuit is a fine example of the genre’ Mail on Sunday

‘An example of how a good police procedural can transcend the questions, answers and hunch-playing. The plot strands fly in all directions, but Jefferson manages to keep order, slowly progressing via a few surprise turnarounds to an unexpected denouement’ Time Out

Praise for Black Water
'Parker at the top of his form' Los Angeles Times

‘Both convincing and heartening. Parker gets better and better’ Literary Review

‘An entertaining story with an appealing heroine’ Sunday Telegraph

‘A well-plotted psychological thriller that keeps the reader guessing’ Time Out

‘A guileful pursuit story with a gripping outcome’ Scotsman
