Overview

When Catherine Bennett agrees to attend an important party as a favor for her boss, she knows she won't enjoy it, but she doesn't expect to end up holding a dying man in her arms and becoming the recipient of his last message. Bobby Stark has evidence that will prove his younger brother has been framed for arson and murder. He wants that evidence to get to his brother's lawyer, and he tries to tell Cathy where he's hidden it. Unfotunately, he can only manage to give her a cryptic piece of the location before he dies.

The man who killed Bobby saw him talking to her and assumes she knows where the evidence is hidden. He wants it back and he'll do whatever it takes to get it, including following her and trying to kidnap her.

Cathy enlists the aid of attorney Peter Lowell and Danny Stark, Bobby's prickly, difficult younger brother, as well as a handsome private detective to help her find the evidence before the killers do.

Editorial Reviews

Scribe's World - Natalie Brunelle
Five Stars: "Ms. McCullough is an excellent writer and this is a terrific story. Once I started reading I couldn't stop and all my previous engagements had to be put on hold until I finished. I was racking my brain trying to solve the mystery right along side Cathy, and I was falling in love along with her also. Karen McCullough is moved to my must buy list. Read this story. It's great!"
The Romance Journal - Cheri Murphy
"A Question of Fire is a page-turner that I just couldn't put down. I really enjoyed the heroine, especially her sense of humor! It made a terrific romantic suspense story even more fun to read, as I never knew what Cathy's reaction to any situation was going to be.

"The dialogue between Cathy and Peter is especially good. Two people with some serious lifestyle differences, it was interesting to watch them negotiate as they dug deeper into their investigation. Danny was a great characte
Ellie Kinnon

She's smart, multi-faceted and interesting - someone you'll really enjoy getting to know. And Peter Lowell is the perfect foil to balance her! From their battles over red meat versus salad to their clash with brutal enemies wanting to destroy them, these two forge a partnership you'll cheer for enthusiastically. This book is a terrific read.

    A Great Read!

    A Question of Fire is a page-turning mystery that also offers a romance between the journalist heroine (Cathy) and the lawyer hero (Peter). Cathy witnesses a murder and is the only one to hear the man's dying words. The victim was trying to clear his brother of arson charges, and everyone -- from the brother and his lawyer Peter to the killer and a mysterious, sexy private investigator -- wants the evidence. Cathy investigates the death, which puts her squarely in the path of men who'll stop at nothing to get what they want. I thoroughly enjoyed following Cathy on her thrilling fight to save a wrongly accused man from prison.

    When journalist Cathy Bennett get's involved in a murder (the guy dies in her arms!) she'd not about to walk away from it. She has a story brewing here plus she feels she owes it to the dead man to fulfill his request. With his last breath he asks her to pass info to his brother's (Danny) lawyer that will prove that Danny is innocent of arson and murder. She soon finds her own life being threatened. Wonderful pacing, a growing romance and that overall tone of noir. Great story, great read.
