My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed Karen McCullough’s romantic suspense A Question of Fire.
Reporter Cathy Bennett knows she’s out of her element filling in for her newspaper’s society editor at a party for the city’s elite, but she certainly doesn’t expect to end the evening sitting on the grass holding a dead man’s hand. Before he was murdered by a gunshot that echoed through the night, the young man now dead on the elegant lawn gave Cathy a message for lawyer Peter Lowell.
“Danny was framed. I’ve got the proof.”
Cathy and Peter are thrown together in a quest to prove the innocence of Peter’s young client Danny, surrounded by a landscape of lies and deception, arson and murder, with just enough information to expose them to the criminal perpetrators hunting for the missing Danny.
Karen McCullough has crafted an enjoyable and suspenseful quest for the truth about the murder of a young man named Bobby, a man named Danny falsely accused of arson, a mysterious private detective, and a web of crime … and let’s not forget the romantic touch of love that makes this an especially satisfying read.
