I loved this last book of the Newpointe 911 series. The plot was excellent and the characters' struggles believable. It was great having Nick and Issie to follow around for this book since they had seemed like under-used characters in the other novels, but it was just that their story had yet to be told!

Pastor and fireman Nick Foster found the body in the inferno engulfing his church. From the bullet wound in the head, it's clear this is no ordinary fire victim. The quiet community of Newpointe, reeling from the shock of the dead man's identity, struggles with the agonizing question: who did it --- and why?

Paramedic Issie Mattreaux is no icon of virtue, but she cares enough about her teenage nephew, Jake, to track him down when he turns up missing. Only, what she finds is far more than a harmless bonfire on the outskirts of town.

After a chilling attempt on Issie's life, Nick takes on the role of protector even as he struggles wit the tragedy that has struck his church. Whoever is behind the fire is far from finished. Unknown to Nick, that person's twisted agenda now threatens to consume everything he loves most.

I can't tell if my original post is going to show up, or if the iv monster ate it.  So I will copy and paste it here again just in case.

I wanted to let you know there is one more book in this series.  Trial by Fire was supposed to be the last one, but after 9/11, she decided to write one more.  It is an excellent read also.  It is called Line of Duty.

Thanks for reminding me - I'll request it soon if I don't see it at the city's library. :D
