Nashville P.I. Harry James Denton is looking for another case--and he gets a hot one when the magnificent mansion across the street from his apartment is torched in a suspicious fire. The blaze has all the scorch marks of the East Nashville Arsonist, a phantom firebug whose burning desire seems to be driving GLBT gentrifiers out of Harry's funky, rundown neighborhood. This time, though, the modus operandi includes murder.
It gets personal when the dead body found in the ashes of the incinerated mansion turns out to be a well-known psychiatrist who was about to marry Harry’s ex-wife, Lanie. When the cops discover that Lanie’s going to inherit a fortune, the heat’s on her as the prime suspect. It’s up to Harry to untangle this hot mess before his ex goes down in flames.
And the torch is turned on him…
