New York Times bestselling author T. Jefferson Parker is out with a thriller that is the first in a new series for the author.

In "The Room of White Fire," private investigator Roland Ford is hired to locate Air Force veteran Clay Hickman who escaped from a mental health facility in San Diego County.

Parker, a Fallbrook resident, set his new thriller in the county. Parker features KPBS prominently in the book including a character named Nell Flanagan based on KPBS Midday Edition host, Maureen Cavanaugh.

On Tuesday's Midday Edition, Parker discussed why the book is set in the county and his inspiration for the book.
