San Diego Author's 'Full Measure' Explores Devastation Of War, Wildfire
When a devastating wildfire threatens your home and life, the mind focuses on the important things in life: family, community and survival.
San Diego author T. Jefferson Parker has captured that feeling and much more in his new novel, "Full Measure."
Putting aside the crime stories that have brought him fame, Parker introduces us to a family in turmoil, a Marine returning from Afghanistan, a community coping with its own fears of outsiders and farmers struggling to stay on the land they love. It all happens after a devastating North County wildfire agitates existing tensions in the community.
