Book Description

A farmhouse explodes in the middle of the night.
The town drunk finds a burned finger on his front porch.
An elderly woman is left to burn in an abandoned building.
A serial arsonist hides in plain site, plying his fiery trade in the dead of night. Who will his next victim be?

Boone Childress is a former Navy intelligence operator, a hero turned firefighter who returned home to the North Carolina mountains to pursue a career in forensic investigation, but when a series of arsons points to murder and greed, he finds himself stymied by a corrupt law officer and tight-knit southern society. Everybody, it seems, has a secret to hide.

A hero doesn’t need medals to prove what he’s made of. Just the chance to do what’s right.

An adult crime thriller by award-winning author David Macinnis Gill

I liked this writers style of writing. Good likable characters, easy dialog to follow. Kind of a small hick town mentality with good people and bad. good twist at the end. I will check out other David Macinnis Gill books.

The most thrilling book that I have ever read, it kept me hooked throughout and even now, a few days later, I am still thinking about this story, and longing for more. Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Good May 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The storyline was good, but there were a number of grammatical and typographical errors that distracted me and kept me from enjoying this story. It was as if the book had been transcribed by someone who didn't know English.

That bit of annoyance aside, I found the storyline very enjoyable and fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good beach read May 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an interesting book. Not a chiller, thriller but with enough of a story to keep your interest. The characters; some were charming, others were not so much. The end was a little surprising. It was a likable read.

1.0 out of 5 stars More like Ho Hum August 3, 2014
By A Katz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thriller? More like Ho Hum!
Dialogue is awful. The main character is suppose to be a decorated combat veteran and he acts and speaks like an immature high school junior. Examples. He is quietly following and hiding from the bad guys and then he suddenly blurts aloud an obscenity when he discovers who the bad guy is. He blurts out "I love you" to a girl he has known only a short time. He is repeatedly told to follow firefighter protocol and then proceeds to disregard orders. The other characters aren't much better. A Japanese exchange student mixes up idioms. This is suppose to be comical but it falls flat. Abner, the grandfather, is the only interesting character. Too bad the book isn't about him. Curse words do not bother me but the use of them in this book seem to be added for no other reason than to use them. The story line is weak and boring. I agree that better editing is needed but I can read around typos and misspellings. I have not rated this book down for editing. I read the whole book because I don't believe in reviewing a book without doing so. I also was waiting for the book to get better. It never did.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother. June 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very rarely review books, but this one got my goat. Maybe if Boone had been a very young high school student, it would be different, but he is supposed to be a highly decorated Naval intelligence officer. I had to quit reading about a fourth of the way through. Boone showed no intelligence at all. He talked like a 12 year old. Annoying.
