Those who play with fire are going to get burned.... Seven years ago Martin Chadwick set fire to a Manchester pub, not knowing a teenager was sleeping inside. Chadwick's release from prison is imminent, with journalists gearing up for a good old-fashioned media lynching.
With the victim's father telling the papers he is out for revenge, DS Jessica Daniel is left to keep an eye on Chadwick and his fiery 18-year-old son.
If that's not enough to keep her occupied, a private investigator is doing a fine job sticking his oar in, it looks like there's a schoolgirl suicide ring in operation, her car is working a little too well, and the endless rain continues to pound her northern home.
Jessica's personal and professional life are in the balance - giving her barely enough time to focus on the person in her midst seemingly intent on burning everything to the ground.

The story was okay, but no page turner unlike some in the series. My attention wandered away at times and I may not have stuck with it if I hadn't grown attached to DS Jessica Daniel in the earlier books.
Yes, I will keep on with the series. Some are great, some 'pass the time'.
She is a great narrator. Flawless infact.
On balance, yes.
i really like the notrator style and enjoy these jessica danells books worth a look x
I did enjoy this listen, but I didn't think the writing was as good. There seem to be phrases repeated lots of times. And I did think that the main character was unfortunately coming across as a bit of a caricature.
