Another Fine Private Eye Novel by T. Jefferson Parker

In T. Jefferson Parker’s new Roland Ford thriller, The Last Good Guy, the search for a missing girl leads the private eye to a mysterious date farm with military-grade security, a security firm owned by a racist billionaire, a decommissioned nuclear plant, and a charismatic evangelist who may or may not be a pedophile.

Along the way, Ford begins to suspect that the girl’s disappearance may have a connection to a looming terrorist plot.

Although all of this may seem wildly unlikely, Parker does a fine job of pulling the threads together and maintaining the tension.  Best of all, Parker tells the tale in tight, vivid prose that at times borders on the lyrical.
