Prolific crime-thriller author T. Jefferson Parkerís The Renegades is the follow-up to last year's L.A. Outlaws, the novel that unleashed Sheriff Hood on a desert world full of drug dealers, desperation, bad guys, and a beautiful and capable love interest.

Adding to his problems is the death of his partner, Terry Laws. Only inches from his crime partner and friend when the murder happens, our hero is sent on a search to find out who did this and why. More importantly, why wasn't he snuffed sitting just inches away in the squad car?

Parker well understands the framework upon which a true thriller must be built: inspired and well-defined characters; realistic plots; and a language that is both edgy and elegant. He brings the noir sense of the great pulp writers of yesterday such as Jim Thompson and modernizes that style with his own unique treatment.
