I’ve been reading a lot of T. Jefferson Parker. He’s a crime novelist who’s been around awhile and won awards. I picked up a paperback copy of The Fallen, which is about a cop who was pushed out a hotel window and survived and now has the ability to see people’s emotional states as colors. That’s the gimmick part. But Parker is a wonderful storyteller and uses language nicely as he describes an investigation of a murder and local corruption in San Diego.
