Parker Has gifted us with so many worthy quotes in this book that I thought it appropriate to use a quote by Fred Allen to complement him "He writes so well he makes me feel like putting my quill back in my goose"''

You can see what I mean if you X-Ray this book and read the quotes highlighted by previous readers. Here is my favorite which seems to fit our times.."Those ignorant of history are not doomed to repeat it....that would be a staggering accomplishment . They are simply doomed to ignorance of everything else"

The main characters , Jim Weir,Raymond Cruz, and the murder victim Ann Cruz (thru her journal) are well described. The plot follows the quest of Husband Raymond and Ann"s brother Jim as they hunt for evidence to prove the guilt of the person who murdered Ann. Several suspects appear including Ann's former high school and currant lover who is a wealthy land developer,
and a convicted sex offender who has served his time and has
Moved into the area. His previous crime facts match the evidence in Ann's murder.

A sub-plot in the back ground may have played a part in the murder due to Ann's activities in the movement to stave off the development of land grabbers who may be dumping chemical waste off the coast line to bring down the value of property in the area.

Parker's scenes in most of his novels are in Southern California. His later books have scenes in Mexico. This book deals with the attempt to turn quaint Newport Beach into a thriving Metropolis. Back in the late 70"s and 80's when I was a licensed P.I. So. Cal was one of my most popular areas to work in.

The ending seemed me to be a little hurried. It was a twist meant to be unexpected but I believe most readers had already figured out who the guilty party was a chapter or two back before the big reveal. The best reading in the book, for me, were the quotes. Especially the long speech by 91 year old Doris Tharp who was adamant about saving the old Newport Beach with it's charm and not debasing the coast line with massive traffic jams and huge hotels.

This third effort written in the 80's by T. Jefferson Parker is before some of his outstanding novels eg, WHERE SERPENTS LIE and SILENT JOE. But like those two it also deserves the
5 STAR rating. Highly recommended.

This is my first Jefferson Parker novel. Although originally published in 1992, it didn't seem dated (except for the absence of cell phones). The writing was quite good. The problem I had with this story is that the victim, the sister of protagonist Jim Weir, was not likable. Although the author keeps telling us that everyone liked Ann, he doesn't give the reader any reason to agree with him. We also don't have any reason to like his brother-in-law, mother, love interest, or anyone on the Newport Beach police department. The mystery is interesting for about three-quarters of the story. But then it seems repetitive, and you want resolution. The last few chapters have you guessing who Ann's killer was. All in all, a good read.

I have now read quite a few books from Mr Parker and I am always pleased about the fact that although there is always a certain constant of developing anti hero characters, each book stands on its own. It is always a different set of facts, characters and story line... feels like a Law & Order episode... never the same, never boring... a bonus for me is the situs of the story... Orange County a few years back... any OC resident will enjoy this book. Only negative are a few annoying spelling mistakes... hopefully these can be corrected in the next editing...!

I enjoyed this 1991 thriller by T. Jefferson Parker immensely. It is a complicated story regarding the "progress" coming to the city of Newport Beach, as well as the story of a complicated and dysfunctional family, as well as a murder mystery.

Jim Weir returns to the city where he once lived after being in the salvage business for a few years. During this time, his sister Ann is murdered. She was married to a sheriff's deputy, whon is also a friend of Jim's, Raymond Cruz, and the couple had been expecting their first child, although Ann was 39 years old at the time of her death. There are numerous plot twists and surprises in this book, so many that at times, I found myself holding my breath for the next new development.

It is a tragic and sad story, but also a story of forgiveness and redemption. I thought it was extremely well written and one of the best of Parker's novels.

I have come to appreciate his work in a way I never noticed before. He is a fine writer whose books have captured my imagination, caught up in world I don't know as a Northern Californian, and able to clearly envision a landscape I have only briefly visited as a tourist. California, Southern California in particular is a character in Parker' s work as surely as the finely drawn characters who populate his novels. If you haven't read Parker's books and are looking for something of substance to read I strongly suggest you start with this one.

I love all of his books. His character development is intriguing and I especially love the atmosphere and depiction of the Southern California areas. He evokes the mood, tempo, and accurate descriptions along with some history of the SoCal scenes. His plots are well developed and the writing smooth. His books are like slipping into a well worn comfortable pair of shoes that have been forgotten and offer pleasant rediscovery.

An excellent story by a great writer. Somehow I missed this one when it came out but glad I found it. Loved the OC setting (since I live there), the characters, and of course the wonderful writing. Nothing is as it seems and only after reaching the final pages do all the personal and political intrigues come together. Don't miss this one.
