Out of the still-smoldering ashes of a fatal arson fire . . .
The Enterprise has a new lease on life, but nobody knows how long that will last. Will there be a newspaper tomorrow? There's plenty of work on Jessica Nelson's crime desk, but when she learns of a hot lead in the cold-case arson deaths of her parents and twin sister, she knows she has to investigate it.
The story pulls her into the death of a cop, requires her to face her own phobic fear of fire, and introduces her to a man—much too old for her—who is passionately committed to using fire to protect the wilderness.
Will this bring her any closer to a killer who has eluded the police for over twenty years—and who threatens to start another deadly, catastrophic wildfire?
