Four college students believed they were making a statement. They were activists, fighting to preserve the environment by burning down a new apartment complex. But they didn’t realize that someone was watching. A blackmailer hides in plain sight, using people’s secrets for personal gain, and when this criminal sets his sights on the four young arsonists, he begins his most deadly game yet.
Firefighter David Hunter is devastated when he’s too late to save a teenage girl from a Minneapolis fire. Authorities soon discover that it was a case of arson and homicide detective Olivia Sutherland and her partner Kane are assigned to the case. David and Olivia shared a night of passion some time ago, and sparks fly when they are drawn to one another again. But just as they begin to revisit that fateful night and address the events that tore them apart, David and Olivia are forced to pursue the blackmailer, whose horrific plans threaten to destroy those closest to them.
Prepared some tissue while reading this book, you’ll need it cos I need it. There’re some scenes in there very sad and heartbreaking to read.
The story starts out kind of slow but intriguing to nudge you keep going. Olivia is a homicide detective who received a call required her to go to a scene where there are dead bodies found. A dead girl is found in a building that’s on fire. And another dead body who’s being shot in the heart. This is not a normal arson case. This is a homicide.
Then Olivia and her partner received another call that another building is burnt and there’s a dead man in there. He’s already dead when the fire started. So who’s killing these people?
It’s very early to know the “WHO”. But it’s the “WHY” I don’t know. Karen Rose always have a way to keep her book interesting and suspenseful that you won’t know what’s coming.
