#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.

    " I really enjoyed this book! Strong female character and devoted doggy sidekick.....what more could you want, lol. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/13/2014

    " You have to admire a woman's relationship with her dog. As adorable as the dog seemed to be, the mystery of Silver his ability to leave havoc in his wake kept me reading. Again, Iris Johansen's suspense was enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue J | 2/10/2014

    " Good read. I enjoyed meeting new characters, even though I like the Eve Duncan characters better. That is probably because I have come to know them better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sierra crosby | 2/8/2014

    " I liked this book. I've read a couple of books by this author and I enjoy them. I didn't like the fall in love bit, but that isn't my thing. I did like that the ending wasn't totally cutesy in that a loved one of one of the main characters did die. Fast paced, well-written, kept me wanting to read more, pulled me in quick. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom Hames | 2/2/2014

    " The first book by this author that I have ever read. I didn't think it was all that great, but I'm willing to try another one by her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 2/1/2014

    " Woman wakes up from a 2 year coma to discover she has the gift of "seeing" fire and arson. She works for another gifted man to find a serial arsonist. It's okay. Thriller adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 1/29/2014

    " 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 Mcnab | 1/28/2014

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 M.C. | 1/28/2014

    " DNF - It became a wallbanger. "She moistened her lips." and "He/She grimaced." were used every few pages as dialogue tags and with each one I became more disillusioned (and the tale unfolded without any tension...only the typical angry heroine set against the 'hated' man that became her lover)). There was no evidence of an author review of the book or intercept by a good editor. I suppose once you reach best seller status, it doesn't matter. It did to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Williams | 1/20/2014

    " This is one of the books I picked for a dollar at Half Price. I just fill a basket with anything that looks interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaclin Szafraniec | 1/18/2014

    " This book is good! I wouldn't teach it to the entire class, but I'd recommend it to those boys who like science fiction and fantasy lit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenn | 1/11/2014

    " It's okay. The heroine is a nice change, but the story seemed to fade as it continued (or maybe it was my interest?). Any way you look at it, it wasn't too memorable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Salsadancer | 1/10/2014

    " 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 ... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 12/31/2013

    " It was a bit out there but..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 12/31/2013

    " "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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Janiska nordstrom | 12/25/2013

    " I did not like it very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tabitha | 12/18/2013

    " 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 Dana M. | 12/1/2013

    " 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 Charly | 11/11/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky Crowe | 7/8/2013

    " Weird story, more paranormal than mystery (I was expecting straight forward crime story). Not terrible but wouldn't go around recommending anyone read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marla Sommer | 6/28/2013

    " Entertaining, but I couldn't read it fast enough with Stephen Kings new book sitting on my dresser. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marti | 5/23/2013

    " 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 Bobbie Fisher | 4/22/2013

    " Greatly enjoyed reading this book. First one from this author for me. Good story-just quite unbelievable which makes it good fiction. Look forward to reading more from this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debi | 3/2/2013

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aleshia | 9/14/2012

    " it was a great great read...i had no idea that it was gonna turn out that way it was great that they pulled in a victom of a house fire...and that no one believed her until it was to late so to speak "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy a/k/a LuLu Brown | 7/31/2012

    " I've read other Iris Johansen books I've enjoyed more. I didn't get into the psychic abilities of the characters and didn't care much for the villian. I give it a weak 3 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 7/18/2012

    " See? I DO read fiction (occasionally)! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 5/22/2012
