Description

Fire that burns the flesh, sears the soul, and frightens you awake at night. Lacie Wagner knows fire. She has the scars to prove it. And the nightmares. Nightmares that began with the horrific accident that took her father's life. Nightmares filled with a stranger's face and a taunting voice promising that she too will burn alive. Wherever Lacie sees fire, she sees death.Determined to move beyond her fears, Lacie has risen to the top of her field as a hard-hitting Washington news anchor, keeping her scarred hands hidden from prying eyes. But one cold Thanksgiving weekend, as snow falls on the city, Lacie's nightmare voice warns that the Dead Time is near.It happens on the heels of a breaking story about another woman's tragedy: a U.S. Navy officer who has plunged to her death in the Bering Sea. Then Lacie's thirteen-year-old daughter, on a visit to her father in New York, vanishes without a trace.Her unknown enemy is closing in. Ripping apart her life. Burning his way into every place she tries to hide. Daring the police to catch him. But one man thinks he can: an iconoclastic FBI loner who breaks rules and breaks cases. A man driven by his own haunting secrets, Jack Stein is determined to save Lacie and find a killer who is always one step ahead of them.But the key to his identity is buried deep in Lacie's fire-seared past. A past too terrifying to remember. A past she cannot reach.show more
