#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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't Put This One Down This is one of the best physcology, romance thriller book to date that I have read. It was very surprising how the story line turned out I think Iris Johansen did a fantastic job with this book. I found this book mesmerizing and very fast paced right till the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gripping and thrilling ride through flames Fire is evil enough on its own --a force of nature but when one man tries to control it and use it as revenge it becomes an ugly powerful tool. Johansen uses this theme to catch a master criminal --\kerry \murphy is matched with Silver who both have special skills to stop the evil in his tracks. This is one of Johansens finist thrillers outside the Eve Duncan series. \it is a page turner to say the least. \keeps the reader hopping through the book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Suspensful, fast-moving read I listened to this on audio book, and it was an abridged version, but I enjoyed the story. The main characters Kerry and Silver are interesting and their chemistry, which alternates between "I hate you" and "I'm intrigued by you" is just realistic enough to draw you in. The story is about fire. There's an insane genius running around killing people with fire that he can actually control, and Kerry and Silver (both of whom are psychic) are working together (when they aren't hating each other) to try to stop him, each for their own reasons. Even though this was an abridged version, I didn't feel like I lost any of the story. The suspense builds well, and you are anxious to find out who wins. Although there's a bit of romance between Kerry and Silver there are no sex scenes. The book is definitely about the hunt for the bad guy with just a bit of romantic tension thrown in for spice. All in all, a fun easy read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Firestorm SIZZLES! I just finished this novel today as a reward to a grueling week and the first thing I have to say is that it is ironic that Iris Johansen and I were on the same ‘wavelength’ in 2004, with both of us publishing a novel about female psychics who investigate arsons or suspicious fires. I have been a longtime fan of Johansen--long before she branched out into the romantic suspense genre and this novel did not let me down. In Firestorm, she takes a seemingly normal arson investigator, Kerry, with a trained arson dog who is given all the credit and throws her together with a mysterious and somewhat ‘controlling’ mystery man, Brad Silver. Add to this Trask, the evil genius who designed Firestorm, a secret government project that could annihilate an entire city with the press of a button. At first, Kerry is resistant to helping Silver track down Trask. Until the madman targets her brother’s house. With Silver’s not-so-patient guidance, Kerry fine-tunes her ‘gift’ and the chase is on. With plot twists and subplots that involve a fire from Kerry’s past and a flaming romance with Silver, this is a novel that sizzles. I read it last night. In one sitting. ~Cheryl Kaye Tardif Author of Divine Intervention (1-4120-3591-0) available now, and Whale Song (978-1-60164-007-9) available 2007 from Kunati Books

Read from the Book

1 OAKBROOK WASHINGTON, D.C. This isn''t the end of it, Brad." Cameron Devers''s lips tightened with irritation. "I''ve no intention of standing by and watching you waste your potential working with those damn nutcases. You''re one of the most brilliant men I know and I have a job for you here." "Where you can keep an eye on me?" Brad grinned as he leaned lazily back in the chair and stretched his legs out before him. "It wouldn''t do you any good. I''m a lost cause." "Only because you want to be. And it''s not good for you. You''re burning yourself out. Look at you. You''ve lost weight since I saw you last." "A little. I''ve had a rough four months." "Then give it up and come to me." "And do what? If I were anywhere close to you, the media would eventually ferret out our connection. Besides, you can''t trust me. I''d get mad and open my mouth at the wrong time and blow your political career." His smile faded. "I''ve done a hell of a lot of harm to you in these last years, but I won''t do that." "I''d chance it. I''ve been in the Senate for twelve years and if my reputation can be damaged by just having you around, then maybe it''s time I stepped down." "No!" Brad paused and then tempered his tone. "Look, Cam, don''t be an ass. Everything''s going fine. We don''t need to change anything." He stood up and glanced around the elegant, book-lined library that breathed
