Summary

Sunday Times best-selling author Stephen Leather's latest edge-of-your-seat thriller.
A stand-alone thriller from Sunday Times best-selling author Stephen Leather that takes us into the world of the London Fire Brigade's elite Investigations Unit.
Vicky Lewis is a force to be reckoned with: not yet 30 and already Crew Manager in the London Fire Brigade, she's destined for great things. But when she enters a burning building to save a man's life and leaves it with catastrophic injuries, all that changes. She's shunted over to the Fire Investigation Unit, where she's forced to team up with cantankerous veteran Des Farmer, aka the Grouch. When Vicky stumbles across the Grouch's off-the-books investigation into the fiery deaths of a series of young, blonde women, she decides to join him in his search for the truth.
The answer is close - perhaps too close. Vicky's already been burnt once, and now she's playing with fire....

Such potential

A BRILLIANT premise and sets the characters up for future stories, but this became predictable and felt desperately rushed towards the end. Not Stephen Leather's finest work
