#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen turns up the heat in this explosive new psychological thriller. This time a gifted arson investigator teams up with a mysterious operative to stop a killer raging completely out of control…

For Kerry Murphy, the inferno is never far away. The flames of that long-ago night still burn in her nightmares: the heat, the choking smoke, the helplessness. She can never run fast enough…

Now Kerry works as an arson investigator with her evidence-sniffing dog, Sam. Together they’re a great team, but her life is about to change in the time it takes to strike a match. The deadly flames of her past are back, and from out of the ashes a stranger appears. Who is Silver? And why has he chosen her in the desperate race to find a killer determined to ignite hell on earth? Kerry and Silver may not have a chance against a psychopath as coldhearted as his method is red-hot. To save themselves and the innocent lives at stake, Kerry will have to do what she hoped she’d never have to do: fight fire with fire.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tabitha | 2/15/2014

    " Not bad for a quick, cheap thrills summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marti | 2/5/2014

    " Iris Johansen is an interesting author. I had read another book by her before this "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 2/2/2014

    " Not bad at all! Great spin on pyrokinesis. Good characters, great plot line, a little weak on the ending but overall pretty great. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dawn Mateo | 1/26/2014

    " Horrible. The synopsis on the back is misleading. After reading the back, I thought it was going to be about and arson investigator and her dog, but a few chapters into the book I found out it is more about psychic powers and communicating telepathically. Hardly any actual references to an actual arson investigation or the arson dog. very dissapointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/26/2014

    " Very interesting book by Johansen. I enjoy her books and this one did not disappoint. I will admit that it took some time to get into, but after a few chapters and the realization that Kerry and Silver would actually be able to work together I continued to read with interest. Crazy to think that some people may have the ability to think and understand other people's thoughts, but hopefully not to the extreme of Kerry and Silver. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 9/10/2012

    " Fast moving and suspenseful, but this book is not for the person who doesn't, at the very least, think it's possible to have psychic mind reading and/or controlling abilities. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 9/6/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 6/18/2012

    " Another so-so reader, very tense voice, I felt it was a strained voice through out the whole reading, not just the parts that should be strained! Interesting plot, with a good twist at the end. I never saw it coming. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charly | 2/5/2012

    " Johansen writes interesting pieces but each that I've read involves a heroine and someone with extraordinary talents or skills. Still in all they are generally a decent read in the "thriller" category. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 10/31/2011

    " The dude in this book is rather sick! It certainly kept you wanting to know what happened next... "

    " I did not like it very much. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristel | 8/26/2011

    " A romance mystery with paranormal element. I didn't like it. It was a romance of the minds but still using sex to sell books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 7/13/2011

    " Interesting concept. A bit of mind-reading, and psychic flashes. It was enjoyable, and intriguing at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 5/23/2011

    " I would have given this a 2.5 rating. Not one of Johansen's best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Salsadancer | 1/10/2011

    " The two main charactrs have esp and mind-meld and use those abilities as they chase a firestarter. I guess I just don't care for Iris Johansen's books - not my cup of tea. The characters come across like cardboard cut-outs. It's all dialog and no development. To each his own ... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janiska | 1/8/2011

    " I did not like it very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 10/25/2010

    " I didn't think I would enjoy this one, as it's not my usual type of book, but I'm glad I read it. The author's sometimes-odd sentence construction bothered me, but overall, it was a decent read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debi | 10/9/2010

    " I only gave it 3 stars because it kept me interested enough to finish it. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. I found the suspense just kept me reading and I really surprised by the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 8/27/2010

    " "Firestorm" is a good, suspenseful read. It focuses on a hard, cold killer who uses fire to destroy his victims. This book has stong characters and a very interesting concept of the working and controlling of the human mind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 8/19/2010

    " Fair.... Pretty far-fetched even for this type of thriller -- wouldn't rtecommend.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 7/16/2010

    " This thriller is about a female arson investigator with psychic abilities who is led by circumstances to an interesting, rather dangerous?, man with even more psychic abilities. This is a typical Iris Johansen thriller which is exciting and a lot of fun to read. "
