Readers and reviewers applauded Suzanne Chazin's debut, The Fourth Angel, and its heroine, Fire Marshal Georgia Skeehan. "Chazin dazzles with her knowledge of pyrotechnics and comes up with plot twists aplenty," raved People.

In this new novel, Georgia investigates the deaths of two doctors, both victims of fires that show signs of a "flashover"-the overwhelming combustion of a room and its contents by simultaneous ignition. She suspects the connection between them might be that each worked on the board approving "line of duty" compensation for disabled firefighters. Georgia is grasping for straws when the bottom of her life drops out: her best friend, a woman detective with the NYPD, disappears, and the man found in the woman's blood-spattered apartment is Georgia's boyfriend and fellow marshal, Mac Marenko. Betrayal-both private and professional-has never hit so close to home. Georgia finds frightening evidence that greed and deception are the cause of these recent deaths and perhaps one more to come-her own.

In this novel, Georgia Skeehan investigates two mysterious deaths, both involving victims of fires that show signs of "flashover" - the vicious and overwhelming combustion of a room and its contents by simultaneous ignition. She suspects the connection between the two might be disputes over line-of-duty compensation for disabled firefighters. But a hunch won't win a conviction in anyone's court of law. Georgia is left grasping for straws when the bottom of her life drops out: someone close to her disappears - from an apartment with a few odd and chilling clues - and a man found at the scene is none other than Georgia's boyfriend and fellow marshal, Mac Marenko. Betrayal, both private and professional, has never hit so close to home. Georgia finds frightening evidence that greed and deception are the cause of these recent deaths and will perhaps be the cause of one more to come - her own.
