#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen turns up the heat in this explosive new psychological thriller. This time a gifted arson investigator teams up with a mysterious operative to stop a killer raging completely out of control... For Kerry Murphy, the inferno is never far away. The flames of that long-ago night still burn in her nightmares: the heat, the choking smoke, the helplessness. She can never run fast enough... Now Kerry works as an arson investigator with her evidence-sniffing dog, Sam. Together they're a great team, but her life is about to change in the time it takes to strike a match. The deadly flames of her past are back, and from out of the ashes a stranger appears. Who is Silver? And why has he chosen her in the desparate race to find a killer determined to ignite hell on earth? Kerry and Silver may not have a chance against a psychopath as coldhearted as his method is red-hot. To save themselves and the innocent lives at stake, Kerry will have to do what she hoped she'd never have to do: fight fire with fire.

Professional reviews

"Kerry Murphy's entire life is consumed with fire-fighting, the effect of a childhood fire that killed her mother. Her sixth sense about arson is both a blessing and a curse, and when she teams up with Silver, who has an uncanny ability to read other people's minds, the sparks fly as they set out to identify a clever fire-starter. Bernadette Dunne turns in a mixed performance. The men's voices, the weakest element, are a bit of a stretch. And Kerry's Southern accent is at times pronounced, at times nonexistent. However, despite some trite dialogue and weak writing, Dunne manages to draw listeners into the story with an emotional reading. Once engaged, they'll be hard-pressed to stop listening. S.S.R.
