Nine firefighters lost their lives when the Dead Horse Paint Company burned to the ground. Mac Fontana survived---and then ran as far as he could from the smoke and the memories. But it wasn't far enough.
Three years later, those lethal flames have come roaring back to life to sear and blister Mac Fontana, now the fire chief in tiny Staircase, Washington. The charred corpse of Ed Callahan---the despised former Deputy Chief whose inept handling of the famous blaze hastened the death of nine brave men---has been discovered in Fontana's jurisdiction. Everyone who was at the Dead Horse nightmare has good reasons for wanting Callahan dead . . . and that includes Chief Fontana himself. Now the time has come for him to face up to the heat of the terrible past . . . before a killer obliterates his future.
