The brilliant new novel from the incomparable Karen Rose, in which an arson leads to murder and blackmail, and David Hunter, who first appeared in Karen's first book DON'T TELL, leads a desperate search for those responsible.
Firelight, fire bright...
Four kids set fire to a supposedly empty condominium block. But when they see the girl at an upper-floor window desperately banging on the glass, they realise their mistake. Although they don't all agree, the group leave the girl to her certain death, little realising that someone watching their every move. Someone who has a nasty habit of blackmail...
For local fire fighter David Hunter, getting the blaze under control is hard enough, but when he finds the girl's body he realises that this arson attack has become a murder case and the homicide cops are immediately called in. Now, as David works with the cops, it's a race to find the arsonists, and the blackmailer, before events escalate out of all control.
