As a series of lethal, white-hot fires terrorizes the city of Seattle, forensic investigator Sergeant Lou Boldt and his aide, Daphne Matthews, become embroiled in a perilous cat-and-mouse duel with a mysterious arsonist and murderer

Blackwell North Amer
There is a homicidal arsonist loose in Seattle. Single mothers are being killed in fires that burn hotter than experts have ever seen. The children are spared. Why?
For Seattle Police Sergeant Lou Boldt and the department's psychologist, Daphne Matthews, the High Temperature Accelerant fires challenge their every resource. The fuel used in these deadly fires is as much a mystery as the identity of the arsonist who sets them.
A Seattle fire marshal reveals to Boldt the ominous quotations sent to him before each of the fires. A twelve-year-old boy, caught in an ugly battle at home, unintentionally witnesses a drug deal that may not involve drugs at all, but ingredients far more volatile and lethal. Did the boy, in fact, see the arsonist's face? Can police rely on a twelve-year-old as a witness? Or is the fire marshal, his past suddenly in question, more involved than anyone wants to believe?

I like this book. I love the way Mr. Ridley portrayed the young Ben's innocence and how the complicated relationship between the psychologist and the detective unfolded. The horror of the crime in this novel is unthinkable, but very possible with military incompetence and the less than honorable way they treat our veterans.

Quite violent but intriguing and personalized as well. I like Lou Boldt and his Seattle Police Department colleagues and enjoy seeing how Pearson develops their characters through nonstop action plots.
