Overview

The little-known life of a fire marshal is part police detection and part forensic investigation. The vivid accounts in Heat take readers to the scenes of our most horrifying crimes: mob burnouts, lives destroyed by insurance torchings, grisly arson murders committed out of jealousy or revenge. Fire marshals carry nothing but years of experience battling the flames, a badge, and a gun to their job. Here are their most unforgettable cases: the suspicious blazes, the weird breaks, the manhunts, the dramatic shootouts, and the ultimate moment when disaster is averted or a child's life is saved. In this grippingly authentic oral history, the fire marshals speak movingly about those they have arrested and the tough decisions they have made. Capturing the unmistakable voices of the firehouse, the courthouse, and the street, Micheels takes you to the heat of the fire and gets to the heart of the crime.

    Heat: Fires C.S.I. Disappointing

    When I ordered this book I had high hopes based on the description. I was very disappointed. This book has no photos - this information was not displayed in the book description. I bought this book thinking it would be a fast-moving interesting book about fires and the investigation thereof, and how the investigation aided in identifying cause of the fire and who did it. Instead, what I find is a book where each chapter consists of a synopsis of the careers of individual fire Captains, etc. While there are fires mentioned, they are mentioned only in passing, almost as brief as writing 'there was a fire at the Happy Land Disco in New York, some guy got angry at his girlfriend and came back and set the stairs on fire'. There are obviously more words than that in the chapter, but there is no inclusion of how the fire was fought, what challenges there were, or any edge-of-your-seat first hand experiences of firemen or survivors. I admire what the different fire Captains, etc., in this book have done over their careers, but I found the overwhelming inclusion of peripheral minor day to day issues to be boring. I found this book to be more about the people at the fire house and their problems, than about the fires themselves. This book would be have been so much better had it had photos and much longer descriptions of fires and first-hand accounts from survivors and firemen.
