In this complex tale of murder and insurance fraud, Jack Wade, one of the best arson investigators around, is the adjuster for California Fire and Life Insurance Company. The huge scam involves the Russian Mafia and a cast of crooks and mobsters from all over California. In this carefully crafted novel, Winslow painstakingly educates the reader about fire by giving the fire its own personality.
