The novel begins with an arson. Arson investigators discover a murder victim in the burned building and this is how Peter Brichter becomes involved. There is now an arson investigation and a murder investigation. As in a standard mystery, there are several murder suspects that have to be investigated and eliminated to find the real murderer. It also needs to be determined if the arson and murder are related.
"Ashes to Ashes" diverges from the standard mystery in that there are several sub-plots which revolve around various characters. These sub-plots don't detract from the novel and instead give us character-trait motivated characters. This makes the characters seem more "real" and adds to our involvement with them.
The novel is told primarily from Peter Brichter's point of view, but with an occasional switch to (this isn't a spoiler as all the characters know) a "dirty" cop's point of view. The interaction between these two is one of the sub-plots. It gives us a look inside how the fictional police department works. There are other sub-plots that serve to give us insight into the workings of the characters' relationships with each other.
I'd recommend this book for the reader who isn't just interested in car chase, bang-bang mystery novels, but instead wants to get to know and like (or dislike) the characters.
I admire how the author managed to fit in the personal married life of Peter Brichter, who happened to have some issues about... oops! Best not give it away. I highly recommend for others who are avid fans of suspense and mystery.
