When the sixth floor of the Las Palmas Hotel caught fire Robbie Brownlaw was in the diner across the street about to have lunch. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:

A good cop, a young man of conscience, Robbie Brownlaw was thrown from a sixth-floor window of a downtown hotel and miraculously survived the fall. The traumatic incident left Robbie with a fast-track career in the San Diego P.D.’s Homicide division . . . and a rare neurological condition that enables him to see people’s emotional words as colored shapes—green trapezoids of envy, red squares of deception . . .

Another good man lies dead in a blood-splattered Ford Explorer—an ex-cop-turned-ethics investigator whose private life was torn open by unthinkable tragedy. Whether Garrett Asplundh’s death was suicide or murder isn’t immediately apparent—but it’s soon clear to Robbie and his smart, tough partner, McKenzie Cortez, that Garrett had hard evidence of sex, scandal, and corruption spreading deep into local government. But pursuing the truth could prove more emotionally devastating than Robbie ever imagined—and cause the fatal fall of more than one top player, and the city Robbie serves.

Promoted to homicide after surviving a push from a sixth-floor hotel room, Robbie Brownlaw, the youngest detective in the department, uses his new talent for synesthesia--seeing colorful shapes tied to emotions when someone speaks--to investigate the death of Garrett Asplundh, a fellow San Diego cop charged with monitoring the integrity of city officials. Reissue.
Annotation:
This police procedural by the Edgar Award-winning author of CALIFORNIA GIRL introduces San Diego police lieutenant Robbie Brownlow, who developed synesthesia after an enraged arsonist threw him out a hotel window three years ago. Now, Robbie can judge the emotional content and truth value of people's statements by the colored shapes he "sees" floating out of their mouths. He uses this ability to good purpose when someone murders Garret Asplundh, an investigator for San Diego's Ethics Authority looking into ties between a high-end call girl ring and several prominent city officials.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Deftly plotted, gracefully written and, as usual with this savvy veteran..., it's the lead character you pay your money for. Robbie is another in Parker's growing gallery of wonderfully sympathetic heroes." (starred review) 01/15/2006
