Summary

At 23 and with a notorious case under his belt, Emory Rome has already garnered fame as a talented special agent for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. His career is leapfrogging over his colleagues, but the jumping stops when he's assigned a case he fought to avoid - an eerie murder in the Smoky Mountain hometown he had abandoned.

The mysterious death of a teen ice-skater once destined for the pros is soon followed by an apparent case of spontaneous human combustion. In a small town bursting with friends and foes, Rome's own secrets lie just beneath the surface. The rush to find the murderer before he strikes again pits him against artful private investigator Jeff Woodard. The PI is handsome, smart and seductive, and he just might be the killer Rome is seeking.

Really good murder mystery

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had read it before listening to it, and had enjoyed it then, but Hugh Bradley really got the characters across well; there was good differentiation between them and you didn't get confused as to who was speaking at any point. The mystery itself was well laid out and the ending presents interesting possibilities for the future on a number of fronts. Emery and Jeff's relationship comes across well and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series and I hope it will also become available in audio.
I'm definitely going to be listening to this again. Highly recommend.

Smart and Twisty

I enjoy good mystery, and I as kept guessing all along. It could have gone a lot of ways, and Wilson kept us on track with a few well placed and integrated sub plots. Enjoyed the telling and the take.
