I don’t think I have ever read a book where fires were the main focus point and the cause of death in so many cases. It was a bit terrifying since I have a fear of fires and my house burning down! I was getting a bit emotional reading about the families being trapped in their burning homes.
Since this is the 4th novel in the series, I was pretty familiar with the characters and the structure of the novel. I’m torn on the ending though. I liked how the fire starter was revealed and the reasons behind why they did it. However, I wasn’t too satisfied with the final ending. Of course, it’s hard to say why I didn’t like it without spoiling anything!
3 calculators out of a potential 5. I’m really enjoying this series and I’m going with the lower rating just because this novel wasn’t as good as the previous novels. It was a still a great mystery!
