Description

From the author of This Doesn't Happen In The Movies, a Readers' Favorite Finalist in Mystery, comes another great crime caper with a dose of humor and an homage to classic film noir! Torch Scene Denver private investigator Reed Ferguson is between cases when a house fire threatens to consume the home of his girlfriend, Willie. The police think it's arson, and they look to Willie - the owner of the building - as the logical suspect. Worse yet, when a body is found in the charred third-floor apartment, the police think Willie is the killer. Reed hops into action to clear her name, but as his own list of suspects grows, so does the danger. Can Reed find the culprit who committed murder, or will his investigation go up in flames? The latest installment in the Reed Ferguson mystery series is sure to keep readers riveted until the final page. Praise for the acclaimed first novel in the Reed Ferguson mystery series, THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES: Kirkus Reviews on this private investigator series: The promising kickoff to Pawlish's comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following. Readers' Favorite on this mystery series: This is one witty, hilarious private detective story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end. 5 Star Review There is little doubt that Renee Pawlish is a promising new voice to the comic murder mystery genre. Quite noticeable...is Pawlish's adept development of the plot coupled with her ability to contrive clear, concise and playful prose with almost perfect pacing.
