Some brief overview of this book

Scarred for life by a brutal father, Joe Trona found a safe haven and a loving childhood in the home of the couple who adopted him. Now he spends his days as a deputy for the Orange County sheriffs department and his nights as a driver and aide to Will Trona, the influential politician who rescued him from the Hillside Childrens Home. An expert in firearms and the martial arts, Joe has been backing Will up for a long time. Still, his skill isnt enough to keep Will alive, and when his father is killed right in front of Joes eyes, the young deputy vows to avenge him. But first he must find out how the kidnapping of a tycoons daughter, a scam to line the pockets of Will Tronas political enemies, the murder of two Guatemalan immigrants, the unholy activities of a charismatic minister whos a close friend of the Trona family, and the strange alliance of two rival L.A. gangs are connected to Wills death.

Every secret Joe uncovers leads deeper into his beloved fathers murky past and ultimately his own. But the reader stays right with this extraordinary man as he battles his demons and ultimately vanquishes them. Author T. Jefferson Parker (The Blue Hour, Red Light, Laguna Heat) is one of the best thriller writers working today. Fans of Michael Connelly and Dennis Lehane—and Raymond Chandler, for that matter—will appreciate Parkers ability to create a complex, fascinating, and fully realized hero whose inner reality is brilliantly revealed by his actions. Will Trona is an equally intriguing invention; while ultimately he is an enigma, we remain convinced that he is worthy of his sons devotion. Silent Joe is a mindful, intelligent novel you cant put down. It should break Parker out with the really big boys of mystery fiction, the million-sellers with the marquee names. In fact, hes a much better writer than most of them, and unlike many, he never tells the same story twice. —Jane Adams

Winner of the 2002 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel.

A few words about book's author

Biography

One of the best loved crime writers of our time, T. Jefferson Parker was born in Los Angeles and has lived all of his life in Southern California. The poster boy for Orange County, he enjoyed an almost idyllic childhood bodysurfing, playing in Little League, and enjoying family outings with his parents and siblings. He was educated in public schools in Orange County and received his bachelors degree in English from the University of California, Irvine, in 1976. (He was honored in 1992 as the Universitys Distinguished Alumnus.) His writing career began in 1978 as a cub reporter on the weekly newspaper, The Newport Ensign. After covering crime, city hall, and local culture for the Ensign, Parker moved on to the Daily Pilot newspaper, where he won three Orange County Press Club awards for his articles. During this time, he filed away information he would later use to develop characters and plot points for his novels. Published in 1985, Parkers first book, Laguna Heat, was written in whatever spare time he could find during his stint as a reporter. The book received rave reviews and was made into an HBO movie starring Harry Hamlin, Jason Robards and Rip Torn. Since that auspicious beginning, Parker has made a name for himself with smart, savvy bestsellers dealing with crime, life, and death in sunny Southern California. In 2001, he hit the jackpot with Silent Joe, a bittersweet thriller that won the Mystery Writers of Americas coveted Edgar Award for Best Novel. In 2004, he repeated the feat with Califoria Girl, making him one of only two writers (the other is James Lee Burke) ever to have won two Best Novel Edgars. Among other honors and accolades, Parker has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Best Mystery/Thriller and the Southern California Booksellers Award for Best Novel of the Year. His books continue to score big on the national bestseller lists.

Good To Know

The T in Parkers name doesnt really stand for anything. His mother once told him she thought it would look good on the presidential letterhead! In an interview with hardluckstories.com, Parker explained how his definition of noir has altered: It seems to me that since 9/11 our appetites for darkness have shrunk a little. Mine have. I know that as a writer Ive tried to bring more breadth and humanity to my stories. I think when all is said and done, a noir attitude is fine, but its still just an attitude, a pose. Parkers first wife, Catherine, died of a brain tumor at a very young age. He has since remarried happily. In an interview with Harlan Coben, Parker was asked about the state of crime writing, i.e., whats wrong and whats right with it. I think the Achilles heel of mystery/crime writing is character, he responded. You have to have good characters—and sometimes I think mystery writers rely to heavily on plot and velocity of plot at the expense of characters.
