Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[An] adrenaline-charged adventure. New York Times Book Review
‘All the good gals and guys in Mr. Parker’s winning story have the reader rooting for them, and of course they root for one another.’ Wall Street Journal
“[The Last Good Guy] is the best Roland Ford mystery yet, and one of Parker’s strongest. It’s a twisty cautionary tale that will leave readers pondering the damage done in the name of misguided religious fervor and patriotism and yearning for more good guys like Ford to bring justice to our world.” Los Angles Times
“Damron’s smooth, well-paced voice is a great match for the ‘last good guy,’ a thoughtful, justice-seeking investigator…Damron effectively differentiates male and female characters and does a masterful job portraying Ford’s colorful neighbors—his group of irregulars, who serve as professional and personal support. An engaging audiobook that challenges the listener to sort out truth from lies.” Audiofile
Parker tells the tale in tight, vivid prose that at times borders on the lyrical. Associated Press
“An extraordinary, pitch-perfect tale that just might be the best crime thriller of 2019.” Providence Journal
Parker has had a long and successful career, but Ford is perhaps his best character so far, and this series just keeps getting better. Real Book Spy
In the third case for his franchise hero, the prolific Parker summons the memory of retro hard-boiled crime yarns. Kirkus Reviews
As is typical for Parker's novels, the stage upon which the story unfolds is a microcosm of today's America, with racism and intolerance, the escalating struggle between conservatives and liberals and the pervasive intelligence of megachurches and the politics espoused therein. As is also typical of Parker's novels, it is a mighty fine read. BookPage
Parker delivers another exceptional noir....Readers of C.J. Box will enjoy the strong character development, fans of James Patterson will delight in the twists and turns, while T.C. Boyle fans will appreciate the atmospheric California setting. Library Journal
