This book is about two doctors that are killed in a fire. The fire shows signs of a "Flashover" which is a term used when the combustion of a room and everything in it go up in flames at one time. While investigating Marshal Georgia Skeehan finds out that both of the doctors/victims made a habit of no letting disabled firefighters have compensation. That when Georgia realizes she might be dealing with an arsonist and a murderer. Georgia must find the man or woman that did this horrible crime bef ...more

I enjoyed every minute of this book. It read very much like a Michael Crichton thriller/mystery, full of science and interesting facts, as well as the very human stories of the people involved. In this case, the book is about the nature of structural fires, forensic fire research, history of two generations of firefighters in New York.

Great read, but hard to put down!

I had a hard time getting into this book, but once that I did, it was good. This is #2 in Georgia Skeehan series. I have now read the first two and there is one more, so when I find the last one I will probably read it too. I thought at first it was a bit hard to follow. I was a little surprised by who the bad buy was, but it did make sense at the end.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed, there was engaging mystery and suspense. I have read a lot of police procedural and mystery books and the fact that this was about fire marshals was intriguing.

Wow - I love this author. This was an amazing, fascinating, fulling engaging book! So well written, highlighting the sacrifices firefighters make while telling a story that is both horrific and spell binding! Fantastic!
Tense and exciting, with wonderful characters. I'm surprised that this series featuring FDNY Fire Marshal Georgia Skeehan isn't better known.

#2 in the Georgia Skehan, NYFD Marshal series.

Connie mysteriously disappears and Georgia's lover,Mac, is found in a blood-splattered apartment, with

More 'airport' reading. This is pretty darn good too, except the final plot twist was really unnecessary and pretty dumb. Good characterization, well written, interesting factual material presented in a non-boring way. Definitely interesting enough that I will look out her other books.

Chazin came up with an even better story in the second Skeehan novel. More twists and a villain I caught on to just a little too quickly....but all in all a great read. There is only one book left so I hope that Ms. Chazin is working on the fourth book in the series.

This copy is an ex library one... But not the library that I work in. It comes from down the road in Wellington.

Suzanne Chazin is the author of two mystery/thriller series. Her “Jimmy Vega” series, about an upstate New York cop navigating the world of the undocumented, “hits the heart, not just the pulse,” raves Lee Child. The books are based on Chazin’s outreach work with the undocumented. Publishers Weekly called Land of Careful Shadows (book #1), “timely and engrossing,” and Jimmy Vega, “engaging, psych ...more
