From Booklist

The sound of sirens at 4 a.m. awakens Lilian Campbell and her friend and lover, Ada Strauss, who quickly realize that Nillewaug Village, an assisted-living facility, is on fire. Ada had recently persuaded her elderly mother, Rose, to move into Nillewaug, despite Rose’s unwillingness to leave her Lower East Side apartment for Connecticut. Lilian, a journalist, accompanies Ada as they rush to the burning facility to check on Rose and soon discovers what could become a big story. Meanwhile, the police have found the body of Norman Trask, a retired surgeon who collected antique clocks and had an apartment full of old parts, solvents, magazines, and rags. Could an arsonist be at work? The author effectively mixes a fast-moving plot with commentary on important social issues. --Barbara Bibel

Format: Kindle Edition
Fast moving and satisfying. Atkins packs a lot of characters and plots into this book. He manages to keep it all moving and while the numerous characters can be a bit overwhelming, it works. I think a few of the characters have traits added on with a thick brush, and don't much rise above stereotypes. But the bad guys get caught and an odd sort of justice prevails. If you are an older reader you may particularly enjoy or fear for the seniors who are center stage as victims of a fire at a retirement home where everyone is losing their money.

Very well written and action packed with some great twists. I thoroughly enjoyed this and it's predecessor Vultures at Twilight. Hope another one is coming soon.
