About this author

T. Jefferson Parker is the bestselling author of 20 crime novels, including Edgar Award-winners Silent Joe and California Girl. Parker's next work is a literary novel, Full Measure, to be published in October. He lives with his family in Southern California


In FULL MEASURE, when Patrick returns from the war in Afghanistan, he finds his hometown and his family avocado ranch scorched by wildfire, his fellow citizens often divided and intolerant, and the economy gutted. Is Patrick's world different than the one you live in? Or do you think this is a realistic dramatization of what most men and women returning from overseas deployments would see?

“No man has seen God. No man has seen Lucifer. No man that I've ever talked to! It's just a useful way of looking at the world. And seeing into it. ”
T. Jefferson Parker, Iron River

“There's a stream that trickles through all of us. It's always there. It's evil and we know this, so we force it to mix with the larger river inside us. We let it be consumed by the greater flow of good. But when the good in the river runs dry and there isn't enough of it to dilute the stream, then the stream flows faster and harder, uncontrolled, and it finally floods one life, then another, then another. And it's always the innocent who are easiest to pull down. It's always the innocent who are standing there on the banks and looking in, curious and trusting and sometimes, maybe, even a little brave.”
T. Jefferson Parker, Where Serpents Lie
