|Summary, etc.:||"Boston PI Spenser faces a hot case and a personal crisis in the latest adventure in the iconic New York Times-bestselling series from author Ace Atkins"--|
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 May #1
A year ago, three Boston firefighters lost their lives battling a blaze in a century-old Southie church. The Boston Fire Department offered no official outcome of its arson investigation, suggesting a tragic accident. Jack McGee, a firefighter who lost his best friend in the incident, refuses to accept that conclusion and hires Boston PI Spenser to investigate. Spenser pursues a couple of theories. In exploring the theory that a turf battle between crime bosses led to the arson, Spenser angers one mobster who decides Spenser should learn a lesson, and, if that doesn't take, he'll have him killed. Meanwhile, author Atkins, who has his own successful series featuring Mississippian Quinn Colson, provides readers with the alternate perspective of the real arsonists, who, worried that Spenser may be getting close, decide to throw him off by setting more fires, targeting Spenser's apartment, prompting the detective to reveal a heretofore unseen but fascinating streak of vulnerability. This is a very suspenseful, cleverly plotted entry in Atkins' extension of the Spenser series. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
