Patrick Norris has seen the worst that Afghanistan has to offer—excruciating heat, bitter cold, and death waiting behind every rock as comrades are blown to pieces by bombs and snipers. He returns home exhilarated by his new freedom and eager to realize his dream of a sport fishing business. But he is shocked to learn that the avocado ranch his family has owned for generations in the foothills of San Diego has been destroyed by a massive wildfire and the parents he loves are facing ruin.

Ted Norris worships his brother and yearns for his approval. Gentle by nature but tormented by strange fixations with a dark undercurrent, Ted is drawn into a circle of violent, criminal misfits. His urgent quest to prove himself threatens to put those he loves in peril.

Patrick puts his own plans on hold to save the family’s home and falls in love with Iris, a beautiful and unusual woman, when disaster strikes. When Ted’s plan for redemption goes terribly wrong, he tries to disappear. Desperate to find his brother and salvage what remains of his family, Patrick must make an agonizing choice.

Three-time Edgar Award-winner T. Jefferson Parker is known for his many bestselling crime novels, from Laguna Heat to The Famous and the Dead. Full Measure marks a departure; it is a literary novel that explores many subjects, among them the bonds of loyalty between brothers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Stunning…[Parker] has touched on the frustrations and complications of coming home from war, domestic gun violence, and the often fraught relationship between brothers set against the backdrop of California’s avocado farms, fires, and floods. What a brave and daring writer.”

    Lisa See, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A tense and compelling drama of the wars without and the wars within—and of the flame of violence that burns through the American psyche.”

    T. C. Boyle, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Edgar-winner Parker (Laguna Heat) takes a break from writing bestselling crime novels for this standalone about an Afghanistan veteran who comes home to California and discovers that the town where he grew up is its own kind of war zone…and the stage is set for a chaotic climax.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A great American family novel…Parker is playing in the same league as John Steinbeck.”

    Stephen Harrigan, author of The Gates of the Alamo

  • “Jay Snyder lays down a tone of foreboding as he delivers Parker’s novel of honor and loyalty. His deep voice and measured pacing emphasize the cerebral elements of the work as its two protagonists cope with their circumstances…Snyder’s subtle delivery has listeners waiting anxiously for one, or both, to explode from the pressures of their struggles. Snyder’s economical use of dramatic effects creates even greater excitement at the climactic points in the plot when he ramps up the energy for maximum impact. This is a powerful novel, and Jay Snyder delivers an equally powerful performance.”
