A series of arson attacks in Glasgow and Edinburgh pull Dr. MacLeod into a forensic investigation. New characters are introduced - Severino MacRae, Chief Fire Investigator in Edinburgh; young teen, Jazz, who hopes to investigate and avenge the death of his friend, Karen; and Karen’s dog, Emps (Emperor). Familiar faces return - Chrissy, Bill Wilson and Sean.
A very readable narrative and crime drama.

The second in Lin Anderson’s series of books featuring forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod. MacLeod is a complex character whose commitment to her job is absolute but her private life contains confusions and conflicts that are at variance with her professional self.
MacLeod is involved in a police investigation into a series of fires in the Glasgow area. She is asked to assist in a similar investigation in Edinburgh when her counterpart there takes ill. She soon finds that there are connections between the fires that are occurring in opposite sides of the country.
However MacLeods presence in Edinburgh is not widely accepted and she is under pressure to return to Glasgow. It is a pressure that she strongly resists and when she begins to identify a pattern in where the arsonist strikes however in the process she makes herself a target for the perpetrator.
An enjoyable book but not as good as the first in the series. Links between the characters appeared to be tenuous at times which in my case meant there were holes in the storyline that were not addressed or answered. However that aside it passed a few hours pleasantly and I would read more in the series.
Torch is based in Edinburgh at Hogmanay so the stress of a potential crime is somewhat heightened.
Rhona Macleod is teamed up with the Fire Service hunting out an arsonist. This adds a whole new dimension to the characters within Book 2.
The subject of homelessness is touch upon with great respect and honesty from Anderson and makes the lifestyle of those on the street become very real.
You are held on the edge of your seat on a few occasion through the book but the ending leaves you with a few unanswered questions but eager to start Book 3
Otherwise I found the story a bit confusing in parts, the writer has a tendency to "skip time" from one paragraph to another, and this leads to a very disjointed narrative. But it is an interesting plot, although, because the last 2 chapters but one are missing, the ending doesn't make a whole lot of sense!
I noticed this too to a lesser extent in the first book of the series - which was very rushed at the end.
I still feel that this is a good read and would recommend this author
