Boston PI Spenser faces a hot case and a personal crisis in this adventure in Ace Atkins' iconic New York Times bestselling series.

The fire at a boarded-up Catholic church raged hot and fast, lighting up Boston's South End and killing three firefighters who were trapped in the inferno. A year later, as the city prepares to honor their sacrifice, there are still no answers about how the deadly fire started. Most at the department believe it was just a simple accident: faulty wiring in a century-old building. But Boston firefighter Jack McGee, who lost his best friend in the blaze, suspects arson.

McGee is convinced department investigators aren't sufficiently connected to the city's lowlifes to get a handle on who's behind the blaze--so he takes the case to Spenser. Spenser quickly learns not only that McGee might be right, but that the fire might be linked to a rash of new arsons, spreading through the city, burning faster and hotter every night. Spenser follows the trail of fires to Boston's underworld, bringing him, his trusted ally Hawk, and his apprentice Sixkill toe-to-toe with a dangerous new enemy who wants Spenser dead, and doesn't play by the city's old rules. Spenser has to find the firebug before he kills again--and stay alive himself.

Lot's of action - who's burning Boston? A rash of arsons has the city on edge. Especially the fire department. It started with an old abandoned church and picked up speed. I enjoy the straight-forward writing style and the usual sarcasm and colourful witticisms of Spenser, our lead private eye. The usual retinue of bad, bad guys, and enjoyable and good, bad guys. Joe Montagna can't do as many different voices as some other audio book readers but he is a joy to listen to. I haven't seen many titles by this author in MPL - have to check again!

Slow, "tortuous," Burn is a more apt title. The marginalization of Hawk and the over saturation of Susan/Pearl contributes little, except boredom. 0 of 10 stars
