About the Author

Jameson Parker was a working actor for over a quarter of a century. While he has appeared in countless movies, television movies, and plays, he is best known for his starring role as A.J., one half of the team of Simon & Simon, the long running hit television series in the ‘80’s. After Hollywood, Jameson became the host of several different hunting shows, including American Hunter, The World of Ducks Unlimited, Sports Afield on Assignment, Beretta’s Bird Hunter’s Journal, and A Dog’s Life, which he also wrote and produced.

Jameson has been a freelance writer for almost twenty years. As an actor-turned-author he is unique because his work has appeared in such a wide range of outdoor magazines: American Hunter, Sports Afield, Gray’s Sporting Journal, California Waterfowl, Shooting Sportsman, Bugle, Under Wild Skies, Delta Waterfowl, Ducks Unlimited, Safari, Western Horseman, and currently he is the ‘Sporting Life’ columnist for Sporting Classics, and the ‘Fine Guns’ columnist for Texas Sporting Journal.

Jameson is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, An Accidental Cowboy (Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martins Press) and the editor of To Absent Friends (Willow Creek Press), an anthology of stories about dogs. He is married to actress and singer Darleen Carr.

Like "No Country for Old Men," this brilliant contemporary western gives us an unforgettable portrait of an old man who embodies all the old values--courtesy, courage, dignity, experience, wisdom, and a quiet, unspoken but inexhaustible capacity for love. Like McCarthy, Parker explores his protagonist's confrontation with unspeakable evil embodied in a coldly terrifying drug dealer as deadly as a Mojave green rattlesnake. But Parker's old man, unlike McCarthy's, is anything but helpless in the face of the evil that threatens him and the grandson he has come to love. And that makes all the difference, for Parker's book, unlike McCarthy's, is an affirmation of the human spirit. "The Horseman at Midnight" will tear your heart in two, but unlike No country for Old Men, it will fill you with hope rather than despair. More than a thriller, it is a love story, and you will finish it in awe of the boundless humanity of its hero and the other good country people who populate its pages. A major novel and a welcome addition to the great edifice of American literature built by Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Hemingway and Steinbeck.
