Very enjoyable book. I love these charactors.
In 25yrs of reading,The series of books written by Riddle Peason, an
Lou Boldt series made me stop the world, just to read one more page.
You wil never guess the end of any plot,or high-tech forensics
investigations,best friend Daphne Matthews.
Really great Lou Boldt book!!
This was my initial exposure to a Ridley Pearson work and I found it very satisfying. I will definitely read more of his work.
Well written about characters the reader can really care about. The plot was also well thought out, and the ending easy to picture and totally believable. I can look forward to finding out how Lou Boldt deals with his family situation, and whether or not Daphne Mathews and young Ben will see each other again.
Fast-moving novel about a homicidal arsonist, loose in Seattle, who is killing single mothers. It's Police Sergeant Lou Boldt's job to nail him. Ridley Pearson can't be beat for crime dramas. Excellent.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
There is a homicidal arsonist loose in Seattle. Single mothers are being killed in fires that burn hotter than experts have ever seen. The children are spared. Why? For Seattle Police Sergeant Lou Boldt and the department's psychologist, Daphne Matthews, the High Temperature Accelerant fires challenge their every resource. The fuel used in these deadly fires is as much a mystery as the identity of the arsonist who sets them. A Seattle fire marshal reveals to Boldt the ominous quotations sent to him before each of the fires. A twelve-year-old boy, caught in an ugly battle at home, unintentionally witnesses a drug deal that may not involve drugs at all, but ingredients far more volatile and lethal. Did the boy, in fact, see the arsonist's face? Can police rely on a twelve-year-old as a witness? Or is the fire marshal, his past suddenly in question, more involved than anyone wants to believe?
