Private investigator Charlie Meiklejohn is called in by insurance companies to follow the trail of a suspected serial arsonist. The arsonist, Carson Danvers, has been on a fanatical crusade since the loss of his wife and son, burning down a series of old, shut-up wooden buildings in which random outbreaks of madness and murder have been occurring. Meiklejohn, with the help of his wife Constance, begins following the criminal trail, but finds himself teaming up with his quarry to face the source of these strange outbreaks: a malfunctioning alien space probe.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lisabet Sarai | 11/27/2013

    " Kate Wilhelm is, in my opinion, a sadly unappreciated author of science fiction, but this book did not measure up to some of her other novels. The book offers compelling characterization and a good deal of action, but it could as easily be a ghost story as sci fi. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Alex | 11/16/2013

    " I was surprised to have bought a science-fiction book, but it is nevetheless also a detective story, only with supernatural phenomenons. A good read, but I still much prefer the Barbara Holloway series. "

    " I enjoyed the quirky mix of mystery and science fiction. Kate Wilhelm does this kind of quick particularly well. "
