Boston PI Spenser faces a hot case and a personal crisis
in the latest adventure in the iconic New York
Timesâ€“bestselling series from author Ace Atkins.
The fire at a boarded-up Catholic church raged hot and fast,
lighting up Bostonâ€™s South End and killing three
firefighters who were trapped in the inferno. A year later,
as the city prepares to honor their sacrifice, there are
still no answers about how the deadly fire started. Most at
the department believe it was just a simple accident: faulty
wiring in a century-old building. But Boston firefighter
Jack McGee, who lost his best friend in the blaze, suspects
McGee is convinced department investigators arenâ€™t
sufficiently connected to the cityâ€™s lowlifes to get a
handle on who's behind the blazeâ€”so he takes the case to
Spenser. Spenser quickly learns not only that McGee might be
right, but that the fire might be linked to a rash of new
arsons, spreading through the city, burning faster and
hotter every night. Spenser follows the trail of fires to
Bostonâ€™s underworld, bringing him, his trusted ally Hawk,
and his apprentice Sixkill toe-to-toe with a dangerous new
enemy who wants Spenser dead, and doesnâ€™t play by the cityâ€™s
old rules. Spenser has to find the firebug before he kills
again â€“ and stay alive himself.
