Who started the fire that killed three people?
Someone knows but isn’t telling. Then there is another fire.
Ann Lindell a retired policewoman who moved to the country for some peace and quiet finds out that it isn’t all that peaceful in the country.
Even though she isn’t a policewoman any longer, she feels compelled to look into the investigation. What’s funny is that someone who didn’t identify himself called her at the police station and asked for her after the first fire.
The investigation moves on and one of the suspects is found dead after a second fire. With that lead being gone now, their investigation starts again and down a different route.
I really liked Ann even though Sammy took up most of the book’s investigation time.
THE NIGHT OF THE FIRE was a different read and a bit slow for me because of the setting and the names of the characters, but it was interesting.
I did like the mystery and the unraveling of it, but not sure I would read another in this series.
I may have been a bit lost since it was the first one I read in the series, but I did like most of the characters, and the writing is well done.
Thank you to St. Martin’s for giving me a chance to get to know these characters. 3.5/5
This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
