#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 desparate 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.

Kerry works as an arson investigator with her evidence-sniffing dog, Sam. Together they're a great team, but only Kerry knows the real reason that they're so good at what they do - only Kerry and someone from a past she thought she'd put far behind her.
But all that is about to change in the time it takes to strike a match. Suddenly the flames are back, sweeping through her life, and this time Kerry may not be able to put them out. And now, from out of the ashes of another tragedy, a stranger appears. Who is Silver? And why does this mysterious man need her help? Even more disturbing, how does he already know so much about her? All Kerry is certain of is that he's come to enlist her in the hunt for a psychopath who has left a trail of gruesome, fiery deaths in his charred wake - a human monster determined to bring his own private vision of hell to earth.
But the killer Kerry is supposed to find has already found her - and in his twisted thoughts and burning obsessions, the nightmare of her own past threatens to ignite and destroy her. When tragedy strikes, Kerry's one hope is Silver: a man who seems to have no alliance to anyone and no authority to answer to - a dangerous man who seems to know Kerry's mind almost as well as she does herself.
But even together, Kerry and Silver may have met their match in a killer as coldhearted as his method is red-hot. And to save themselves and the innocents whose lives are at stake, Kerry may have to reach deep into the very past that once already nearly destroyed her - to do what she hoped she'd never have to do: fight fire with fire.

Writing quite simple, plot too obvious. Reminded me of a mix between X-men, Profiler and Listener.

Has nothing to do with arson investigation and everything to do with mind reading, telepathy and horrible writing.
