Kerry Murphy and her dog Sam try to uncover the arsonist before he gets to her. A fast read.

I must have read a different version than everyone else because I couldn't stand this book. The characters are developed only shallowly. Even though horrible things have happened to them, the author didn't create any feelings of sympathy for them. The best developed person in the book is the butler, but he is a minor character. She uses short sections to jump between characters and action points. I assume she meant for that to make the action tense and fast. It fails. All it is is choppy and poorly developed. The story has an original concept, so I was sorry to see it so poorly developed and written.

This is my least favorite Johansen book to date. I couldn't get a feel for Kerry, never cared for her throughout the book. Something felt very one-dimensional in this story...never got in to the characters and it ended somewhat abruptly. Disappointed.
