Lewis Cole’s latest case is about to go up in flames…

When a mysterious arsonist strikes the sleepy town of Tyler Beach, leaving a trail of burned-down hotels in their wake, the police are left baffled and scrambling for a suspect. Retired Department of Defense analyst and local columnist Lewis Cole once again finds himself called in to solve a critical case.

But the fugitive pyromaniac is just the beginning. When a monstrous act of violence shocks the tiny town, Lewis plunges into a high-profile hunt to unmask the culprit. Driven by his thirst for justice and his determination to prevent another assault, Lewis calls on the help of old friends—including Boston mob-connected “security consultant” Felix Tinios—to bring two criminals to justice.

But as he dives deeper into a pool of possible suspects, Lewis is faced with disturbing truths that will push his skills to the brink. Can he protect the residents of Tyler Beach from another horrific attack? Or this time, has he met his match?

As the next gripping adventure in New York Times bestselling author Brendan DuBois’ Lewis Cole series, this hard-hitting crime fiction novel is an exhilarating read, perfect for fans of James Patterson and Michael Connelly.

Great book! This book had a bit of everything! It had suspense, intrigue, action packed, murder, serial arsonist, rape, some great detective work and plenty of crazy twists and turns! The storyline was very interesting and had me glued to my Kindle! The only weird part was that the main character, I had thought through most of the beginning of the book was a girl! I was very shocked when I found out it was a man?! It didn't really take away from the storyline but through the rest of the book I just couldn't think of this character as a man?! It was very weird and has never happened to me before?! I guess the way the author wrote this character I just thought it was a female?! Still a great read! But I just kind of thought it was interesting to me lol I highly recommend reading this book as it was well worth reading! I would be interested if anyone else felt this way? it was different! Great book though! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!

I enjoyed this latest book in the Lewis Cole series by Brendan DuBois. This style of solving mysteries is unusual and quirky but always entertaining.

Thanks to NetGalley and Severn River Publishing for the opportunity to read this ARC.

Lewis Cole, a man who can’t talk about his past, is back for another installment of this excellent series.Two of his female friends come to him for help: one is looking for an arsonist who is setting hotels ablaze, and the other is looking for her girlfriend’s rapist. With a variety of characters added to the seemingly unrelated cases, Cole continually leaps from case to case until their paths get close enough for him to take action.
