Review by edwardsgt
Detective Elouise ("Lou") Norton investigates a fatal house fire in Los Angeles which raises her suspicions, coloured by her coping with a difficult personal life, in the form of a husband who is a serial adulterer. Very strongly drawn characters, clever plot, vibrant dialogue and real Los Angeles locations all add up to an excellent read.
