Overview

?Liar, liar, pants on fire.? Theatre manager Kate Carpenter had imagined summer would bring long languorous days sitting in the sun, catching up with her friends. Instead, as the city heats up and emotions soar, an arsonist is adding fuel to the fire, torching buildings and leaving a trail of charred bodies. After one fire brings the arsonist closer to home, Kate is frantic to find the guilty party. Who is the mysterious man following her and leaving cryptic telephone messages? Why does the new theatre maintenance worker always seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? Is the beautiful television reporter, who seems to turn up first at the fires, willing to get her story at any price? Kate also worries that her assistant Graham, going through emotional difficulties, might be involved. And just when she is certain she has found the truth, her father turns up for a surprise visit and becomes a suspect himself. In a race against time, Kate fears that she may not be able to find the answers quickly enough to save her loved ones, or herself, from the flames.

Kirkus Reviews
An arsonist has been targeting cities across Canada. Now it's Calgary's turn. Kate Carpenter, house manager for the Centenary Theater (Flirting With Disaster, 2005, etc.), is searching frantically for a house to replace her beloved apartment. Her significant other, Cam, and their long-suffering real-estate agent have almost given up. In a last attempt to get Kate to move, Cam buys a former firehouse and swears to make it into the perfect home. Because the mother of Kate's assistant Graham Becker has just died, the fires popping up around town barely register on her radar until there's one in the theater. She suspects Graham when she finds lighter fluid in his backpack, and when her father, a former firefighter, comes to town, she begins to wonder how he can afford his fancy new fishing lodge. While Cam and his friends are working to get the firehouse upgraded, Kate is stalked by a man who demands she set up a meeting with her father, and pestered by ambitious investigative reporter Geneva Arnold, who's made the arson case her personal crusade. When Kate's attempt to set up the arsonist for the police backfires, she and her dad are caught in a blast at her old building. Cam discovers the arsonist's identity, but tragedy strikes as he attempts to avenge Kate. Another tale of mercurial Kate's adventures and love life with just a hint of mystery.
