When she was a child, her family's restaurant was burned to the ground, and the man responsible was sent to jail. The Hale family banded together to rebuild, and Reena found her life's calling. She trained as a firefighter and then as a cop, always with the end goal in sight: to become an arson investigator. Now, as part of the arson unit, she is called in on a series of suspicious fires that seem to be connected-not just to each other, but to her. And as danger ignites all around her, Reena must rely on experience and instinct to catch a dangerous madman who will not stop until everything she loves has gone up in smoke.Hide synopsis

This is not light and fluffy. You don't put Nora Roberts in the same category as, say, Joseph Conrad. But no one with other things to do should take up this book. The other things will get short-changed. It is tackling some pretty heavy human issues with apocalyptic seriousnes. What seemed to me a slip in the plot structure may have had a meaning of its own. You realize almost from the beginning who the Bad Guy is and what he is out to do and why. But Reena doesn't. You squirm. You want to shake her. But is that very mental opacity something that dogs the human search and contributes its own share to the violence, deaths, and darkness of life?
Whether or not you have a big Italian family, if you have won your way through to the knowledge of what family means, if strength and goodness matter to you, if you tend to fall for Roberts' characters, you will love the whole cast, pity the sociopathic Bad Guy, and hate to close the book.
This is one of the best books I've ever read. I really liked the author's writing style,it was done in such a way that the characters felt real,like people whom one could actually relate to. The story in itself I found to be raw ,edgy & I like the fact that it is very contemporary.A definite page-turner,very difficult to put down!
This story is well written with depth and detail. It is clear that Ms. Roberts researched the topic of Arson Investigation in depth. This is a fast read that keeps you on the end of your seat. The use of timespan enhances the story and draws you in.
I would highly recommend this book.
I enjoyed reading this book. I liked that it gave a detailed description of the characters and started at the very beginning of the story instead of the main character having flash backs of what happened. I would recommend this book to my friends.
