THE CHILLING FOURTH NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING DI HELEN GRACE SERIES
'Helen Grace is one of the greatest heroes to come along in years' JEFFERY DEAVER
In the dead of night, three raging fires light up the city skies. It's more than a tragic coincidence. For DI Helen Grace the flames announce the arrival of an evil she has never encountered before.
Because this is no firestarter seeking sick thrills, but something more chilling: a series of careful, calculating acts of murder.
But why were the victims chosen? What's driving the killer? And who will be next?
A powder keg of fear, suspicion and dread has been laid. Now all it needs is a spark to set it off . . .

British author Arlidge's fourth novel featuring Southampton Det. Insp. Helen Grace (after The Doll's House) is so good that it will send new readers scrambling to catch up with the earlier books in the series. On one night, carefully planned multiple acts of arson take lives in a house fire and destroy two business properties. Grace and her team dig for clues and motives, but a second night brings three more fires, more victims, and more pressure. Adding to the investigation's difficulties are Grace's relationships with Det. Supt. Jonathan Gardam, a Londoner new to the city, and Emilia Garanita, an ambitious reporter. A personal crisis for a key ally, Det. Constable Charlene Brooks, adds further complications. Arlidge's minor characters are movingly real, and the story's twists are surprising and convincing. Helen, who bears both physical and emotional scars, emerges as one of crime fiction's most compelling detectives.
Another good book
