A spate of murderous arson attacks evokes bitter memories for stalwart detective John Blizzard…

It was a defining moment in DCI John Blizzard’s early career when he caught a notorious arsonist on a killing spree.

Yet despite the culprit, Reginald Morris, being safely behind bars in a high-security mental hospital, a new series of attacks occurs.

Blizzard is flummoxed. Has Morris found someone to do his bidding on the outside? Is this a personal vendetta? A copycat?

The only clue to the killer’s identity is obscure poetry that is being sent to Hafton police station. But is it just the work of a deranged mind who enjoys taunting the police, or someone hell-bent on revenge?

Will Blizzard piece together the puzzle before there is another flicker in the night?
