Earl Emerson is a lieutenant in the Seattle Fire Department, so perhaps it's not surprising that the Shamuse Awardwinning author has crafted a searing thriller about a Seattle firefighter falsely charged with arson. Devotees of Emerson's Thomas Black detective series will recognize the vivid characterization and sly plot shifts. The fire scenes, though, will still take your breath away.
